a Word from the Watermaster ....

Postby SandRider » 07 Jan 2013 20:05

quite awhile back (years now, maybe) I began the OH Tradition
of Claiming the Water of Wanderers as they stumbled in ...

I have slacked off on this, for several reasons ...

the first & primary reason is that the Saitek Cyborg game-controller
I had loaded the macro for "your water is ours &etc" onto crapped out,
and has been replaced with a Razer Nostromo, and I have yet to figger
out how to set-up long text macros like that .... & fuck me if I'm actually
typing out "Welcome. Your Water is Ours." all the damn time ....

but also, TWO: I've really become hesitant to Claim Water on just any
asshole that breeches the Water-seal .... (the Dukester put this in my
head a long time ago ... he would not welcome anyone in the
"Introductions" forum, because it was even-money that the Newbie
would turn-out to be an asshat ... & the Duke don't take no even-money
bullshit ....)

so ... to any recent new-comers whose Water I have not Claimed for The Tribe,
donot take this as a slight ... and anyway, it's is 50/50 you'll turn out to be
an asshat, and I would have regretted taking your Water on Faith ....

so, as time & motivation allows, I may in fact go-back over the Intros
& Claim Water ... & I may not ....right now, I'm not nearly as drunk as
I thought I was, when going back-thru this forum seemed liked a "Good Idea" ....

how to fully interact with people.

He is the professional help. Speaking of which, SandRider have you ever watched a documentary called Collapse, I think you'd like it, covers topics such as peak flow and erg returns from alt energy.

I hadn't noticed the drop off in water claiming but that post should be required reading for all new members.

I for one like to try and at least say hi just so they know that this place is active and has people around reading posts unlike other Dune forums.

As I read your rambling up there I began thinking --- I don't remember you ever claiming my water. So I went back and found my introduction thread-- Dang that was a long time ago-- and heck I sounded naive. :doh: At least I have remedy one thing from my intro. :techie-studyingbrown:

And dang, I miss Gameplayer!!! :tissue2:

No Sir. I could not find where you ever claimed my water.

He might be.... wouldn't surprise me.


Edit to add:

Just discovered why. I actually joined before you. That's a shocker. I joined July 22, 08 and it seems you didn't join until Oct :doh:

I avoid reading my old comments for similar reasons. I can't imagine that yours would ever have sounded as bad as mine.

And oh, btw, SandRider, maybe it would be wisere to wait at least SIX MONTHS before claiming water on anymore newcomers.... Give time to see who is :crazy:
