Back in my mother's basement

I lost my job 2 years ago. I couldn't find another one after about 6 months, so I moved to Texas where the economy is better. I failed to get a good job in Texas and then my unemployment benefits were exhausted. So I accepted a minimum wage job, but that didn't even cover my rent and utilities. So this weekend, I moved back into my mother's basement in Virginia. The basement is comfortable enough. I have a refrigerator, bed, TV, and my laptop. It smells old but not mildewy. I come across artifacts from my childhood -old coloring books, encyclopedias, plastic game board pieces. It's free, but I'm ashamed to go into town to get groceries because I don't want to run into anyone from my past. I'm 48 and I want to end it.

"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)
