Apologies for unexpected absence
« on: February 04, 2010, 12:44:34 PM »
Dear Citadel!

I would like to apologise to all for being unexpectedly absent for the last month and a half. I left at least two games hanging without notifying the GMs and did not even post a single sub for the quest I was championing.

I especially apologise to Siren, AG and the players of both Bleakwood and Starkin.

I am sorry, and hopefully I won't do something like this again.

Longer explanation:
I intended to go and visit some family abroad over the new year for a few days. The very day before leaving I was offered the opportunity to spend a few weeks with a friend working at a nuclear research centre straight after visiting my family. I accepted, but didn't even get time to post a warning on strolen to let people know I'd be off.

After coming back home, I began straight away a period of exams (in fact, my first exam was on the day after my return) and have only been recently able to deal with the fallout form being absent (fees didn't get paid, I wasn't properly registered. etc...). And it has been an ungodly mess that is only now beginning to get sorted.

The upshot of this, however, is that I got a personal tour of a fusion tokamak! Woot!
