Oh, I'm pretty sure the perpetrator knew exactly what they were doing. They are a vindictive little dickbag, that one.

The information is still confidential but we believe we know who it was. We worked with the person to verify the chances that it was someone outside of the forums but there's too much that wouldn't add up. We're working on our statement to the community and should have more to say shortly.
The PSTV is amazing.

Double you tee eff? That’s a dirtbag move. I can’t believe any member of our forum would pull that. Must have been a random outsider using google.

No, sadly, this was an inside job.

Just "bought" my phone after my Sprint "lease" ended, lmfao. Can anyone explain to me exactly what this tactic is? I guess you pay less up front, but secretly end up paying more in the long run than you would have had you bought the phone straight up from the start. I knew about this months ago and couldn't do much about it. Bit annoyed I have to cough up some cash after a lease is over, but at least I'm contract free again and my bills better be way lower from here on. I could careless about upgrading or starting a new lease. Sprint's been better than T-Mobile which I had back in the day, but I wouldn't really call Sprint "good" either. The service is worthless at my work. If I didn't update Super Mario Run at home, I'm out of luck!

Sorry I've been gone for so long, but around the time that Nor'easter hit the Outer Banks, Uglie Mugs' internet went down and I had to use the WiFi over at Oceanas Bistro. And since I was outside there wasn't a lot of places to plug my laptop in.

But since then I've ended up going on food stamps again and they were also able to help with my electric bill.

Due to the storm, my mom wasn't able to get to Avon from Buxton for a while, so I haven't been able to get a new service card for my phone.

But...I should be going back to work soon! They're trying to open on the 31st but they're gonna try to open a bit sooner if they can. Also, me and the rest of the crew at The Point should be going in a week earlier to help get everything ready to open up.

Also, if you wanna see some pics of Highway 12 in Avon between the Post Office and Food Lion (including where the ocean water was washing over), check out these pics on Facebook I took.

So, read this paragraph today and it made me sad, though I'm not sure my experience was so different 20 years ago.

According to the 2016 National Health Assessment by the American College Health Association, over 60% of students felt overwhelming anxiety at some point in the past 12 months. Additionally, over 30% of students reported feeling so depressed it was difficult for them to function, and approximately 10% said they had seriously considered suicide in the past year.

Sigh. I'm pouring one out for my dead homie tonight. And by 'dead homie' I mean my beard (RIP). I went to my normal barber today, who after referring to her box of client index cards asked me if I wanted 'the same cut that I normally get'. I was fine with that and she cut loose (literally I guess). When it came to my beard I told her that I wanted to go quite a bit shorter in order to get rid of my Winter mane. Well ... I guess I should have been a lot more specific ... about everything. Her definition of 'my usual cut' didn't jive at all with what I actually got, and she clippered the everloving bejeesus out of my beard, all one length at ~1/4". I suppose it's worth mentioning that I'm so near sighted that I can't really see what's being done with my hair (or beard) until they're (more or less) done and tell me to take a look at which point I put my glasses on. It's like a grand unveiling in which I haven't been privy to the details of the work. :lol:

Needless to say I'm not super happy about it, but equally I'm not exactly a preening prima donna either. Me and my suddenly anemic looking beard will just have to get over it ... I guess. :|
