Vanished off the face of the earth due to personal/work issues.
Got 30-day lay-off notice. Wife caught pneumonia. Missed two weeks of work. Told after returning to work and declining family offers to help take care of wife that all the time I had missed would be unpaid due to an HR error and that I should have been monitoring the accumulations myself.
Lucked into a new job starting a couple days after the old one ended.
Touched my chess set maybe 4 times in the last two years. Stumbled onto a chess game sign-up at a forum I hang out at. Downloaded Babas.
My apologies to everyone whom I had games with that I bailed on. I'd gladly play one with you in the near future :)
I'm just going to bounce along and try to enjoy myself.
