I want this thread's URL on my epitaph when I die... It'll probably live longer than I will. :P

I doubt it. Could probably do some statistical analysis on how often it almost died and calculate the expected remaining lifetime from that :)

I think as long as two people are around to post and keep track of things, it should live for a good while.

It's starting to look like Detroit around here. It's falling apart, there's nobody maintaining it, and most people have left. Those that remain love it, but also have nowhere else to go. :'( :D

I wish this thread would go the way of the dodo like the wm thread in my program. >:(

But really, there's nothing you can do about it. This thread is going to live forever. Until the day allegro.cc closes its doors. Because someone is going to keep posting, like I just did, even though that just means it's going to live even longer. :P

Recently Detroit got some new light rail train along Woodward in it's Downtown area. So it's not completely bad yet.

For the Metro area, there was a proposal on some election (maybe the one that caused Trump... meh) and for some reason, people out right rejected expansion of that train system. Had it pass, it would have been able to cover the tri county area that people around here consider as part of Detroit to have a light rail system. But since it was rejected at the polls, the 3 miles that we have now is all we get (and it's been running for less than a month now BTW)

Stuff like this is why you kinda need to own a car around here.

I've been helping a friend move for the past couple of weeks... Slowly move. Every few days my feet are killing me and once in a blue moon my whole body aches... Should be almost over. Our last day of helping should be tomorrow anyway.

I was so out of it, I thought yesterday was today, and took out my trash can. Brought it back in so it wouldn't be sitting out all day. Hopefully I'll remember to take it out tonight.

If we leave trash out racoons (or groundhogs or opossums, all three of those are plenty in Columbus and I have a hard time telling them apart) will tear it up and distribute all over the yard :/

I have a can, so they can't get to it.

So I recently visited my grandmother in California. While I was there, I wanted to eat at my favorite Mongolian BBQ joint, but it was out of business. :( That's what you get for being gone for four years, I guess... But I found another Mongolian BBQ place that was pretty good. Not as good as the other, but still good. ;D
