Zeta I'm sorry to see this, although I have not graced the IRC in years I enjoyed the early few years I spent there.

Zathras and Homer where both friends and I am sad I have lost touch with them both.

Whiteydude as well, was a great friend to me in my teenage years.

I made many of my friends on that IRC.

Best of luck with your future endeavours zeta.

Very sad. I remember bugging people to make me an OP as far back as late 05.

That IRC was a part of my childhood.

I'll still buy Motte a beer from time to time, in spirit.

I talk in this color when corporations pay their fair share of taxes and don't evade US taxes by stashing profits overseas.

I talk in this color when the wealthiest top 1/10th of 1% don't own 50% of the nation's wealth.

I talk in this color when the wealthy, influential elites of this country don't have unbalanced influence over the economy, media, and government - allowing to regularly further their own interests.

I talk in this color when the US joins every other industrialized nation on Earth and guarantees healthcare for all people.

I talk in this color when 98% of all new income doesn't go into the hands of the wealthiest top 1%.[/spoiler]

An important lesson for life

“The teacher placed an empty jar on the desk. He proceeded to fill up the jar with golf balls until he could fit no more. He looked at the classroom and asked his students if they agree that the jar is full. Every student agreed that the jar was indeed full.
The teacher then picked up a box of small pebbles and poured them into the jar with the golf balls. The pebbles filled all of the openings in between the golf balls. He asked the students if the jar was full. Once again, they agreed.
Now the teacher picked up a bag of sand and poured it into the mason jar. The sand filled in all of the empty space left between the golf balls and pebbles. He asked the class again if the jar was full. The students agreed it was technically full.
Finally, the teacher pulled out two beers from under his desk and poured both of them into the jar filling the empty space between the sand. Now the students began to laugh wondering how far this was going.
The teacher waited until the laughter stopped. "I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life," he started. "The golf balls represent the important things. Your family, children, health, friends, and passions. If everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full.
The pebbles represent the other things in life that matter, such as your job, house and car. The sand---that is everything else. The small stuff. If you put the sand in first, there is no room for the pebbles or golf balls.
The same goes for life. If you spend all of your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are most important. Pay attention to the important things in your life.
Enjoy time with family. Go to dinner with your spouse. Play games with your kids. There will ALWAYS be time to clean the house or take yourself shopping.
Take care of the golf balls first---the things that really matter. The rest is just sand. You are dismissed."
Before the students left, one shouted out. "You never mentioned what the beer represents!"

The professor smiled and said, "Well I'm glad you asked. The beer just shows you that no matter how full your life may seem, there's always room to have a beer with a friend."

Thanks for putting all the time in and effort to support the IRC!

It was a vital tool in the early days of the beta testing and chaotic beginnings of the Quantum server. I appreciate all that you did!
