So yeah, I haven't posted in months, mainly due to graduating college with a degree in History, along with being commissioned a Second Lieutenant in the Air Force, and going to Alabama for initial induction and finally ending up on the west coast, where I'm currently in training for missile ops. As such, I haven't really had a chance to come here (all that and playing WoW too).

First off, I turned 24 last week, which means I'm older than most of you. Second, my 6th anniversary of signing up on this forum was last month. (obligatory OMG I MISSED IT!!!!1 (those who know, know))

Six years. When I was in my 3rd year here and seeing people posting their 5th+ anniversary threads, I never thought I'd be here that long and that I'd've forgotten about this place by that time, but here I am, posting once again on the first Internet forum I ever signed up for. I guess once you come here, you never truly leave.

Then again, I haven't played AoK in years; those few who knew me back in the day probably remember why. But I kept coming here because it was a fun place with some great people, not to mention we could actually do forum events (ok, the AoKH/AoMH forum war was maybe a little much, but we're better than them anyway) and get away with [most]of them. Hell, for all the stunts I pulled/was part of, I'm still amazed I never even received a warning. I guess it's just something that comes with greatness, being seemingly immune to the banstick

One other reason I slacked on posting would have to do with practically all the forumers I knew were gone (except Aro and CC, they just won't go away!), and none of the new forumers could really fill the voids they left. Hats off to zyx, Kelar/lawngnome, hobo, Freako, DM, Adder, penguin, Ray, SS, MW, and the other forumers who made my AoKH experience fun. I miss you guys

But yeah, I don't wanna drag this on, so post ends. Maybe I'll post more here, put some smarta** n00bs who think they can match my magnitude of awesome in their place

Always nice to see a good poster return, so welcome back.

However you still have quite a long way to go until you can match my awesomeness so swallow your pride, sister.

I was thinking earlier today about how a lot of the older forumers were coming back... and this proves my point.

In any event, welcome back.

Welcome back dude. I hope you stick around.

And I heard WoW was the program that abducted you, but I couldn't believe it. I thought the One was supposed to defy his machine overlords and break their control over his mind.

I knew it! I totally called it! Air Force + WoW = no ax.

It's good to see you back. Graduating college is certainly a big change in life, and it happens way too fast. I hope you can find time to stop in once in a while.

I once said the same thing way back in the day, that I missed a lot of the oldies, and then a ton of them suddenly posted over the next few hours.

It's like some sort of unconscious recall or something

The machine overlords only think they have taken me, but if I walk among their society and play along, they are none the wiser. Then when they are least expecting it...the machine shall fall faster than...

Hey ax, how's it been? Remember me? Probably not. But I still vividly recall your excellent AoK gaming skills

6 years eh? Congratulations. It's hard to stick to the same site for that long. Nice to see you back, and hope you can stick around. Activity here is picking up again, with a lot of familiar face returning.

BTW, zyx, what have you been up to? Seems like you just disappeared for awhile.

Seems like your life is going pretty well. Good to hear.

"Especially awe-inspiring is the fact that any single brain is made up of atoms that were forged in the hearts of countless stars billions of years ago... These atoms now form a conglomerate – your brain – that can not only ponder the very stars that gave it birth but can also think about its own ability to think and wonder about its own ability to wonder. With the arrival of humans…the universe has suddenly become conscious of itself. This, truly, is the greatest mystery of all." - Rama

Well, I needed to get away from the forums. I really don't know what I was thinking at the time, but I guess I'll just say I took a long break.

Oh I'm still The One
I remember the day you lost your powers. You traded in your key role in the matrix (everyone has a role!) for some petty name change. Upon realising how epic your failure had been, you reversed the name change in an unsuccessful attempt to regain your former powers. However, since Aro had already claimed "Tixie taxi no swap backsy!", you found yourself royally screwed. How's life as a regular Joe?

Oh hai, welcome back!

I have been away a long time - my password wouldn't work, but its all figured out now. I can't remember when I joined, but it has been a few years. Everything has been getting fuzzy since going "over the hill"...

Neat to see some familiar names still posting here, and especially glad to see AOKHeaven still going strong.
