Holy sh*t lol. Did not even know allakhazam was still around until today.
CHINOOK, SALAD, KARLY! Been years since I talked to you guys. I've still been playing FFXI on my new character I made in March 2008 (Ryland), up until a few weeks back when I got hacked...trying to get my char back, but caring less and less everyday haha.
I ended up joining the U.S. Army, and will likely be heading off to Iraq later this year, unless my unit gets reassigned to end up in Afghanistan. With that being said, I do not think I will be playing FFXIV, but hopefully it rocks so you guys can have fun with it. Anyway, hope all is going well with you guys! JoS for life!
Holy sh*tzu, Beave!
I just came back from Iraq about 4 months ago. You'll have an easy, wealthy tour over there, so long as the stability continues to grow in the country. It was extremely quiet (2 mortars a month!) when my unit left, and as the Iraqis get their feet under them, and take over their own security, you'll probably end up moving equipment around for an (hopefully) exit, whenever we finally give up that ghost. One of the guys I worked with summed it up as, "Came to a warzone, and garrison broke out."
Now Afghanistan...keep your head down, your helmet on, and all appendages you want to keep attached to you inside the up-armored vehicle. Good luck to you, if you end up there.
Let us know you're still not dead, every now and then. As slow as Ifrit forums are, this thread will probably still be front page a year from now.
Come into the sand, and the dust, and the sky
Go now, there's no better plan, than to do or to die
Free me, pray to the faith in the face of the light
Feed me, fill me with sin, and get ready to fight Snooochie
