    Hey guys, just wanted to check in and update y'all on my inactivity.

     

    Starting with Hurricane Irma and being out of power for several days, I got way backlogged both on non-rs related development work and one massive private script I have spent a ridiculous amount of time on. That had me out for a few weeks while I played catch-up. Then I started having car trouble and had to buy a new car which put more financial pressure on me (paying 18% APR on a $18k car gg) which made me realize I wasn't backlogged enough on non-rs related development work to pay for it. So I went out and found more..

     

    Then, just as I was getting ready to get back to scripting/db activity, my macbook's new-ish SSD failed on me which has me suspicious of the macbook itself due to some other power-related problems it has/had. This blows because apparently OneDrive hasn't backed my files up since August 6th. Gg loads of work.

     

    In order to get a new laptop I had to borrow $500 on a 2 week loan, buy a temp laptop, do enough non-db dev work with this temp laptop (what I'm currently doing) to pay off the the loan, return the temp laptop within Best Buy's 14 day return period, and use that $ + a good portion of my paycheck to buy a better laptop (because I can't afford a new top-end macbook pro and will now have to run OSX on a vm for iOS dev)

     

    I also own/develop for another business that is falling way behind on dev because of all this so that is also pressure I will need to alleviate before becoming active again.

     

    All of that being said, I'm still around, and you can still pm me on forums or discord and I will still get back to you when I check it :)

     

    Hope to become more active again when I'm able, and still looking forward to writing some sick scripts both privately and for SDN.

     

    TLDR:

    Swamped irl, laptop fucked, doing crazy shit for new laptop atm, will be more active when things cool down

    Sorry to hear about Irma.

     

    You didnt have to purchase a new vehicle, especially since it wasnt in your budget. Its easier to buy a piece of shit and drive it own and clear for a few thousand. It sucks and I do know, owned a BRZ. You always get better deals with cash.

    I just dumped 2k into the current piece of shit that I did that with less than 2 months ago so I decided I'm not gambling with that anymore. I will refinance the car when I'm able but it seemed like the more stable choice to me. I also only had about $350 to work with to financing was going to be a thing either way. Banks don't like to loan money for low loan-to-value cars, so either way I was gonna get a stupid high rate at a buy here pay here place or at a proper dealership  :)

    Glad to hear that your doing alright now.

     

    Things are definitely way better than they could be :D

     

    Apologies to here this, hope it all works out for you!

     

    Thanks! This kind of stuff happens to everybody from time to time, I only posted this to make sure nobody thought I was just trying to bail out of responsibilities or the community or anything like that :)
