  1. The fact that this thread has about 500 posts since 11/28 kind of discredits the lack of activity Steve is talking about. :PHowever, as someone who has not been to the site if probably over a year, and who just randomly came back to see this thread, I think I can comment.My reason for stopping activity on the site was primarily to get Keller's site up and running, and all of my effort went into that to make it work. When his site eventually closed down, I was on a down trend in my interest in poker, and pretty much stopped playing for a year and also stopped visiting the various forums.After a while, one of the 2+2 mods convinced me to go back there and at least keep posting in their off topic forum, which I did. I like a lot of the people here, but when it came to off topic conversation, I honestly am not a big fan of the 500+ page FCP army threads which go by so fast I feel like I can't keep up. OOT in 2+2 does that now as well, but it goes by less quickly and seems "manageable" in my mind. Even my "i'm back" post I contemplated posting in the FCP army thread, then decided it would just get lost there, and made a new thread instead.When I did start playing poker again, I was already in 2+2, so I just stayed there and started posting strat there. I thought of FCP, but the actual strat threads in FCP always seemed to lack a lot of response compared to 2+2, so I leaned to there. I always thought of "General" here as my home and the strength of the forum at the time. so, to give Steve some credit to his concern, if there are other's like me for whom general was the place they gravitated, there may be things lacking for them right now. I honestly have not had time to look around and see.Steve, another thing to keep in mind is with the World Series finally behind us, the forum may just be taking a much needed breather. And I'm sure the holiday season doesn't help either. Perhaps January will see a nice resurgence...Ray

  2. So, I was just going along, minding my own business, when out of the blue homnig from the old Kelley forums instan messages me, and we get to talking about old times. I give him updates on some of the people I know from the hold forums (Hitch, Palimax, RaidenRadio and RedShirt), and I notice that I haven't heard from Sbriand in a long time. Homnig mentions that "he probably still hangs at FCP."Wow, haven't thought about FCP for a while. I think the last time I had was when I noticed Nikki as one of my friends on Facebook. I remember the good chats with dna, Nikki, Steve7Stud, (occasionally) Daniel and thought I'd come back and say hi and see who all was still here and posting.... :)So, er, how's life all? :)Ray

  3. Although not a huge BKICE fan, I totally see his point here.Toilet, think of it like this:Vegas: Hookers, Blow, partying, gambling, hanging with friends and an exceptionally fun time you will regret missing as one of the last great spontaneous things you still get to do while in school and not trapped down with real life.School: Homework, and sitting at home, probably masturbating to porn.This really should be no contest. You're young. Go have fun.Ray

  4. Regarding it being just Vista, nope, I get the lag too on XP. And it's 100% unplayable with Poker Office right now, even just one table.Opening the cashier however, does not seem to effect me either way. I saw that post, but I don't think the cashier thing is widespread.However, I can't seem to win at poker lately no matter what, so maybe it's better this way. :(Ray

  5. i just read through the threads at P5s. holy **** was that the most boring dribble i ever read in my life. cliff notes: people bitched about things.welcome.
    Agreed. The fact that it was even compared to a Justin Z was silly. I don't think the thing is a big deal at all. But I figured if people wanted to read about it they could.Ray
