The best way to lose your friends is to become the group "handyman"

I have taught myself a lot of useful skills. Plumbing, electricity, and a bit of mechanics. I have also acquired a good collection of tools, wrench sets and stuff. I'm tired of people calling me for help but offering nothing in return. it seems no one wants to just hang out anymore without bringing up their a broken hinge or a leaky fucking faucet. I like fixing things and I like helping out my friends but her's a bit advice for people wit handyman friends: Don't take them for granted. Please don't [italic]assume[/italic] that they will drop everything at a drop of a hat to come fix something. Don't ask to borrow their truck without some kind of compensation- or gas refill. And PLEASE don't call with the claim that you just want me to 'hang out' while you tile your kitchen. We both know that's bullshit. A friend is not automatic free labor. You could just call to say hi and actually do something friends do every now and then.

"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
