Checking in after a terribly difficult life stretch. Still folding like mad as best I can and proud of teammates who have overtaken me. Hope to be around a bit more, drop me a note or just say hey. Mike

I've been away as well, folding a little here and there but making a comeback. It feels a little like a ghost town around here, where did everyone go? I was looking through EOC and it seems like there was a mass exodus mid to late 2011. Tedster, n0b0dykn0ws, staypuff, SwingOp3, RacerAC, even Chumly409 and he was around I think from the start. New faces though active in the top 100, hopefully after my new build I'll work my way back up and into that elite group.

How's Elena doing? It's been a few years since we did the mass fold under her name.

To answer my friends questions, gm, Brian is now CPT and has just recently been offered a highly specialized and largely classified position in US Cyber Command. He is transferring to Ft. Huachuca, AZ next month for some training there but I expect he'll end up at Ft. Meade with Cyber and the NSA. Elena is blessfullly dynamic and healthy Q1 and gotten married back in March to a wonderful young man and are making their home in the Phoenix valley. She teaches 3rd grade at a charter school there. At least they will both be in AZ for awhile for visits are a little less complicated.

It seems after Gordon's death, many of the team drifted away, perhaps still folding but not as active on here. He had a great way of maintaining cohesion as you know.

Nice to see you chime back in Doc! I'm always eager to see some more active humans on the forums! I try to keep up with a bit of activity on the forums, but only have so much time, so the more the merrier!

Also, nice to see that you are moving beyond some more difficult times! Good to hear that your family is moving in/maintaining a positive direction as well. Hopefully more people will catch that particular bug!

Glad to see you again, Doc, and I hope and pray that things are looking up. Some of us are still here, plugging away folding, even in spite of busted hardware and the loss of our Gordon and Rose. My best wishes to you, Elena, and Brian.

Hi Doc, Glad to know your life is back to normal. I am still folding but my main electrical eater is down for the summer months. I bought a 660 for my remote machine but don't have it in yet. Is the heat bad where you are located? I read that we are setting some record highs in some areas near you.

Nice to hear from you again, Doc. Also happy to hear that life is getting back to normal. (Whatever normal is.)
I'm one of those that have stopped folding. My reason is that I am now retired and on a fixed income. I just can't afford all that extra electricity anymore.

Welcome to retirement. I fold on my laptop year round. It only pulls 70 watts. When I pull the battery out it drops down to 1600 ghz so it doesn't overheat. It gets up to 90 degrees C when it is running at 2.8

Good to hear from you, Doc! I wish you continued well-being.

Nice to see everyone else posting. It's evidence that even though people aren't posting regularly, they are still browsing the forum on occasion.

Hey Blondie, it is good to see you are still with us. How is your back doing? My doc has put me on a patch called butrans and it has made a big difference.

Glad to see you here Doc. And to hear your daughter has gotten married is such great news. And I've seen a few others posting as well. Nice to see some have remained here.
I have moved from Calif. to the Dallas , Tx. area now .

Glad you found something that works
No different; plus the older I get; the more meds I'm allergic to.
I've actually figured out what my issue is & know what Dr specializes in it.
