I'm flattered... I did kinda disappear with no warning at all around spring break of last year, and although I did make periodic appearances in the civ1 forum (and never found the time to play the gotm ), I decided for the sake of my sanity to avoid this place for the presidential election... Of course, the real world kept me plenty busy as well; I am now a college graduate looking at quite a few more years of school, simply for my own vanity's sake: it's worth the time and expense just to get mail addressed to "Dr. Caesar." I'm not sure if I'll go back to being a frequent fixture around the ol' colosseum or if I'll end up disappearing into the bowels of studies, although I think it'll be a split between the two. If nothing else, consider this a check-in that I'm alive, well, and put another good year behind me.
