Rules of being my friend:

(1) If you say you want to keep in contact with me, and intend to stay my friend, keep in contact with me. Hiatuses are okay. Saying "I'll talk to you when I'm willing to talk to you again", then not doing so, isn't going to endear me to you.

(2) Lies are bad. Betrayal is bad.

(3) There is no rule 3.

oh, and for those who might think 1.1tb is overkill . . . well, ever since we got the new hard drive array fully working (i.e. yesterday) we've started doing some of the HD-intensive jobs we'd been putting off.

As of now . . .
