wow dude tone it down a notch...family oriented site...even hinting the way you are with you *** is unacceptable...sorry your having a bad day with your comp but thats something taht can be fixed...hope a moderator doesnt come accross this you will be getting a pm shortly after they do...just a friendly hint to watch your tongue man ... i hope all goes well but i think your old enough and mature enough to express yourself in a more adult way then ranting and raving in an innapropriate way...not to say you cant discuss your hard times as i am unemployed as well working on the side for as much xtra cash as i can ... but ... the choice words will not be tolerated and no one really wants to hear about it that way man ... take a chill pill and try to have a good day...if there is anything i can help with comp wise shoot me a pm...i am in school for my bachelors in computer science for computer networking...im sure i can help in some way but really this is just a heads up the moderators will be talking to you im sure ... have a good one man and let me know if i can help in any way computer wise...take it easy brotha lol its just a bad day something will shine...maybe you will find a new frag or something floatin around the tank ! keep your head up!

I think the Zoas are coming back. That was the last I heard. I come back the 15th, and cant wait to get back to the lady and the tank. I will have to request that she post some pix. Antwerp has been a ton of fun, but I would like to have my life back too! Still it has been a great experience to get to travel to Europe at 26 for 2 months for a blue collar job. Pretty sweet deal. From now on my travels should be much much shorter trips. I cant wait to go play with the tank and make sure it is fully operational and will sustain my 2 up coming 3 day vacations for christmas and newyears.

Oh, and BTW, I wouldn't mind having an Adult only section on the forums either, but I understand wanting to keep it totally family too. (i got a mouth like a sailor, i cant tell you how many times i have had to delete entire sentences to make them family friendly. :)

Fortunately I did have a week between each month (thats when we bought and set up the tank) I really worked out well to have a month to mull over the tank and try to figure out what the heck we really want to do. I think we will be going more LR, i want to build a fuge, i have a skimmer on the way etc. I think we will be waiting on fish for a while yet. I was pretty confident when I set up the tank that all was well. Now I realize that we would have made some HUGE mistakes if it were not for TRT and ARC (Atlanta Reef Club). Great groups of helpful people on both. I have spend an average of 4-5 hrs a night creeping through old post, reading others problems, solutions, advice etc. There is so much I want to do now but I think I'll run the 55 for a while and in the meantime find my next tank and do a from scratch build on everything but the tank itself. I'm excited! I could not do this with out my g/f. She does just as much research as I do and she has been a champ. So glad we didn't go cichlid tank. Anyway, almost lunch time for me, I guess the early birds in the states will be waking soon!

If you are still up drinking you would LOVE Belgium. This is the land of beer, the only place in the world where a can of beer is literally cheaper than a bottle of water. So many good ones here, this place can't be beat. My gut tells all.

What a way to start the wake-up call thread. Mitch, Kayak, Mark - you guys are a mess. I guess I'll have to pull out my librarian shushing thing.



Time for brunch here on the East Coast, so Jose sent me some Cuban coffee to get this group in shape. Custom omelets, cowboy potatoes, and Texas toast for everyone.
