Hi :)

I've been lurking around a fair bit recently so I thought it was about time I came back out in the open.

If anyone remembers me that is. If you don't I won't be mortally offended...although I may shed a gentle tear into my pillow...

And oddly enough Dahl, you pop up on my fb page every so often as a recommendation. Which is weird.

Well in that case fb is cleverer than I thought :p I'm only friends with Tru, although I am in a couple of WoT related groups, I think.

Welcome back! Good timing, many of us are doing a re-read of the series in anticipation of next November. See you on the boards.

(AKA, they spam your friends with your other friends). No need to insult figgy like that, Gonzo :p

Anyways, dunno if someone who's been MIA for a good long while now (months-years?) is allowed to welcome ya back, but I will say that I remember you, so...there's that. :)

Maybe while you're here you can direct Felix to the straitjackets.

[As an aside, I was only doing irrc JWB (Or maybe SBX?)'s old job, figured someone would've taken over after me here on the newbie boards.]

But yeah, you aren't Felix, but if you wanna try on a straitjacket or two, Figgy, feel free to. They're to your left as you entered, and the Wards are down the hall to the right. JWB took the crookedjackets with him, I do believe.

actually they have an algotirthm that does that for them :p

yeah. not sure. you're gonna have to check the rule-book Mato(where have you been?)

actually they have an algotirthm that does that for them :p Doesn't make it any less than spam. (And I already knew that, chose to go for a semi-kinda-sorta jokish thing anyways)yeah. not sure. you're gonna have to check the rule-book Mato(where have you been?)Told my step-dad what he could do with himself, changed majors, changed schools, moved across the state, took a semester off, worked at a property management company, got laid off once I had fixed their electronic filing system procedures, began school again in my new major, started working at a sporting goods store (Academy), got moved up to customer service and full-time, while doing school, am already being asked to move into being a Team Lead over the next few months, and doing school all the while.

Basically, I've been busy working and doing school. Not having access to any financial aid due to a step-parent screwing you over and leaving you out to dry makes school kind of expensive...

Do you have to be a certain age to file as an independent? (That's what I do, but I'm old.)

Matoyak

Do you have to be a certain age to file as an independent? (That's what I do, but I'm old.)25, unless you haven't been on any of your parents' insurance, or lived with them for over a year, or something like that.

My step-dad kept me on his health insurance just long enough to file his taxes with me as a dependent, then cut me off the health insurance a week later. I currently count as being dependent on him. This spring I will qualify for at least SOME financial aid, even if I do have to count as being on my mom's stuff. Neither her nor my dad are claiming me on their taxes, and I don't have any insurance, so I should be good without even being on my mom's stuff. Depends on that weird 25 age rule, as I'm only 20, and turn 21 in March...so yeah, nothing doing with that.

Have you talked to the financial aid people about it? You should be able to file independently so long as no one is claiming you as a dependent. Otherwise it's a bogus law and we should bitch about it loudly.

Otherwise it's a bogus law and we should bitch about it loudly.Yeah, I've talked to them. I am not legally independent, I was on my step-dad's taxes as a dependent due to his dickery. I don't get off of that until 2012. This January I can file my FAFSA again and not have ANYTHING related to him on there.

Hey Mato, Tam, Zae, Sare and everyone :cool:

Don't we all sit around burning each other and toasting marshmallows anymore? It's kind of chilly over here!

As for a re-read, I could probably do with starting one. I didn't even realise the final book was going to be so late - don't know how I managed to miss that little nugget. I need to study the last two books in a bit more detail anyway, I've only read ToM once, I don't feel like I've fully absorbed it yet.

And since I was last here I have converted two new people to the Way :cool:

Is it possible to change your name once signed up? I didn't realised I had signed up to these boards at all until it told me my email was already in use, but over the last couple of years Figbiscuit has shortened down to Fig quite naturally, and I'd much prefer to see that if I could...
