Last time I used a modem was on some of the Roundtable's and ASH BBS order area. Had an brain fart today assembling a shower curtain rod. Last night finished packing up a pristine TT I really didn't want to let go of, and saw a FB post about a vintage Moto Cross not 1hr away. Wife pleaded with me to go watch, and for a while thought yes, I need that.
Sunday greeted me missing the last 15 minutes of Sherlock last night because of the radio type internet access where we moved to. The over growth from the forest behind needed tending, boxes of bike parts and old trophies need moved into the small barn loft before the rain begings here.
Came to me, I can devote as much time as possible and never complete a task to my satisfaction, or puropse.
Both Motocross and Atari Computing are a lifestyle. That was the thought. It's not something you move too when the dishes are done, it's driving down the road following course ribbon to the market, or visualize owning a large enough 3D printer to make your own new Falcon case.
February 2007 was the last off road competition, and to be honest, last I've made use of my Falcon was at lest as far back.
Too much clutter, aging of family and friends, all takes it's toll.
So, guess that's where I've been :)
2019 will be a good year :)

Listen, I hear ya and understand completely.

My father one time told me that as I got older time would pass by
quicker and quicker (or at least the perception thereof). I scoffed to
myself about that but I swear, he was right. :)
