playtime just took a nosedive

Postby Shrunk » Fri Aug 21, 2009 10:24 pm

Hey everyone, I wanted to check in and give you all an update on why I haven't been around. I'm trying to fund my last year of school now. As long as I can do that I will be going to school full time very soon and should be able to graduate at the end of the year.

On top of school, I've secured a part-time job doing database conversions and SQL Queries from home while I'm going to school. This is HUGE for me as I really needed some practical experience to go with the book knowledge. I should be able to continue full-time with him after I graduate and I'll be able to work from home as well.

Although I just took my final for my last summer class and have a week or two before fall semester starts I've been given a laptop from my new employer with the company database on it that I have to familiarize myself with so I've gone from lots of playtime to 0. Once I get going on the fall semester and get more comfortable with the job I'll see what time I can squeeze in to play. For right now, I need to devote all my time to other stuff.

I already miss playing and hope you guys keep progressing. I'm a big dwarf fan so I'm excited about the new expansion and hope to have time to play. It is going to be tough for the next year though.

Excellent, I know who to bug when I have SQL questions and Euan isn't around!
