  1. Hey, Chuck. Thing was, I really thought I had the flu. Started feeling like crap in mid JAN. 2019 By the first week of FEB. I knew something just wasn't right. I didn't say much in front of my Gf. on count of not wanting to upset her or scare her. But then for the first time in my life I developed a U.T.I. Never even knew guys were pervey to one. OMG I remember talking to men from Vietnam that told story's about V.D. and the burning, and peeing out what felt like shards of glass and razors and blood. I had all that. Then it was all over my local news about volunteer firemen catching Sepsis. I figured maybe I got something from my past days as a firefighter. Hell I don't know as when the alarm goes in, I just rush into a building to save lives and protect property. But at the E.R. the good Doc said not to buy into that story on TV. None of the meds would take any effect on me and I was told if none of the meds would work I would only have a few weeks to live. I guess the last drug they had in there arsenal showed promise. It kept showing false positives in the beginning but then finally it started working. I had to call for the first time in my life for a ambulance. To think, I was going to just throw on my bath robe and drive myself the 10 or 15 miles away from my local hospital. Good thing I didn't drive as my heart stopped in the ambulance and they used the paddles on me to bring me back. When they say it's like getting kicked by a horse in the chest is a total understatement. I felt like I got hit by a dump truck. I thought I had a heart attach but the EMT said my heart rate went off the charts and just quit. I didn't have any chest pains either as I was talking to the EMT and just blacked out just like that. That's why I said, good thing I never drove myself. One thing if I had died but would never been able to live with myself if I ever killed someone else or mained an innocent bystander for my stupidity. Even though I am much better today, I still don't feel a 100% Something still feels off. Hoping it's just my mind playing games on me. My short term memory still has not fully recovered as a lack of oxygen to my brain. They say it may come back but no guarantee and this has been going on since Feb. 28th of this year. I was sitting at a red lite not to long ago not far from ware I live and couldn't figure out ware I was for a brief moment. Scary. At times you could tell me something and a minute later you could come back and say something about the subject and I get all pissed off as I get clueless at times. My long term memory is great. It's my short term memory that gets in my way. Hope the hell no one ever gets hits with Sepsis as it sucks.
  2. I was supposed to be in bed at 1 AM and is now 2:35 AM Lol. I have not been on my confuser in months. Been sick and over a month in the hospital with sepsis. I'm telling you, when you get in your mid 50's it's all down hill Lol. at least for me anyhow. Hope all are in good health here. I am fine now, but I still feel like I have had the life sucked out of me some days. Just had to stop in and say a quick hello to everyone. Be well guys. Shadow.
  3. Jeff. Happy belated birthday. Hope it was a good one. I must be tired as hell or something as I misread, Chucks heading. I swore it said. " Our President & owner BestTechie (Jeff Weisbein) is having a B " and I thought it read, ...........Baby !! LMAO. Sorry bout that. Eitherway, Hope it was a fun day. Enjoy your youth. I wish I was back in my 20's Mid 50's can suck for some of us. Myself including.
  4. I trust everyone had a wonderful holiday season. Wishing you & yours the very best in 17. I also wanted to stop by and say hello to everyone. I do think of this site often. Sorry I don't post much these days, but, I must admit, I am glad this site still exists. Thanks to, Jeff and all responsible parties that keep this site up an running. Stay safe, everyone. Peace out. Shadow.
  5. Man oh man, this is totally depressing. First I have been here in a dogs age and all I see is members that have passed on. First I saw was, TT75 and now sultan_emerr. R.I.P. my long lost friend. Life is just way to short. Sultan has helped me out with computer issues many of times back in my early days of computing when TTV was on air.
  6. Just happened to pop in here for the first time in ages and this is the first post I come across. Very sad news to view. R.I.P. TheTerrorist_75
  7. Talk about memory lane here. Hello folks. It's been forever since I too posted here. I just so happened to be looking for dead sites to clean out of my bookmarks and low & behold I come across this oldie but goody. Hope life is treating everyone good. Talk about being out of touch, I just happened to see a post by Pete C. about closing down the tech board at G4. I believe it was in 2005 or 06 Well I guess that is old news but new news to me as I have not been over to G4 in many years. I miss the good ole days of Call for help and the screen savers. Remember them good ole days ?? Have a great day folks. I am going to try and make every effort to swing by here more often. As I said, I hope all are doing fine as well as being in good health. Shadow.
