So guys its been a number of years since we all met here, some of u have grown and married some sprogged and some started work, some relocated and sadly some have passed - so what are you all doing now, catch me up?

Me... Im playing games still - have a new job - only work mornings and do web stuff the other half of the day at home (started a new online business). My kids are growing and i often think of the dink game i have sitting on my computer that rabid did an awesome bit of scripting on - must finish that its so close but u know what lol i forgot how to code its been so long and i do more bbcoding on the forum i belong to than retaining dink c heh

I have a new killer cat hes a ninja and i think hes broken he doesnt behave like a real cat (maybe cause hes 7 months old and i cant think of a name for him yet) he loves water and will play for hours - stalk me from the sink and his eyes glow in the dark when he thinks i am about to turn the tap off..
My main source of hilarity

i often think of you lot and wonder how everyone is doing. Love it if u drop a few lines oh what you are up to
Hugs msdinky

I've been lurking here for years and have downloaded and played all of the dmods.

I'm married, have a child and a grandchild!

Just this spring I've started building my own dmod, which I'm hoping to release this year.

As for employment, my company outsourced my programming work to India at the end of last year and now I'm trying to find work and/or decide if I can afford to retire without having to eat catfood. What kind of online work are you doing?

Please be sure to finish your dmod and upload it so we can all try it out.

I've just finished up college, so I'm getting things ready for uni at the end of the year. Off to study TV production. Wish me luck, right? Turning 20 in a few months too, so that's craaaaay.

And looking forward to your hopeful releases, you two! Been a lack of dmods lately, love hearing about new ones. Recently finished one I'd been kinda periodically fiddling with over the years, so that should be up soon too.

Relax.

I've been living in the US for the last 3 years, doing a PhD. Yesterday (well, technically this morning), I submitted my dissertation and I'll be defending it in two weeks. Two weeks after that, I'll go back home to the Netherlands.

I've been working with 3-D printers here, and I plan to do that in the Netherlands as well; I want to start a company doing workshops with high school teachers to build 3-D printers for use at their schools. I have been doing some of those here, and it's a lot of fun.

I appreciate your kind words of compassion.

By "future Indian programmer", can I assume you mean that you have not yet finished school?

BTW, I bear no grudge against those who my job was outsourced to. It's the company I work for that bears the brunt of my anger.

Good to see you drop in MsDink!

My absence here lately is attributed to the fact that I got married two weeks ago today. Still struggling to comprehend how I found a woman stupid enough to marry me, but oh well. Her loss is my gain I guess!

Currently working as a professional barista for a new specialty coffee roastery here in QLD, making great coffee and being rad.

Congrats, BTW Sabre on the young trout. Hope all goes well. Babies are awesome.

Time really flies, it's weird. I always think of you as around 13 and forget that time moves on

I'm working, partly VB.NET programming and partly online retail stuff. Sprog is now almost 2 and there's another one due soon, so that keeps me pretty busy
I think of Dink & D-Modding nearly every day, it's insane, but sadly have no time at the moment to do anything except pop in to the forum now and again.

Apparently I also still use way too many smilies in every post

It's nice to catch up with everyone every now and again like this.

You find yourself occupied most of the times and unable to write essays about your petty distaste for the new age pokemon masters or how the new ghostbusters movie is all chicks.

" figured a name - hes called Chicken (used to sleep in a cardboard box with chicken written on it so i figured its just a word...) "

Ha that reminds me of the chicken we used to have called Tadpole (because she liked to stand in the edge of the pond, eating them). We had another chicken called Schnitzel.

Cats are weird aren't they.
We used to have one called Chess (short for Cheshire), a fat old thing that was named after the Cheshire Cat for his ability to teleport around the house without seeming to move a muscle. Everyone said "oh Chess, because he's black and white, right?" and we'd never even thought of that

Another time we visited the local cat rescue place to look at all the fluffy kittens, and of course came away with a mangy scrawny vicious creature who took ages to trust anyone. We called him Yeti because he was white and he always crouched at the top of the staircase, hissing and swiping at the ankles of everyone who passed.

Anyways...
Pretty much the same going on here, just everything's moved on a bit (except the D-Mod of course). Three young boys and an ever busier job puts paid to that.
I've also got much more into mountain biking, coinciding nicely with having much less time and money, ho hum. Building up a decent bike - more than a year in and so far I have the frame and £30 in the pot lol.
