  1. Being extra careful with a baby on the way right now makes complete sense. I definitely get why it feels weird though. Hoping everything goes without incident! I do think it’s smart to avoid working in healthcare right now regardless if it can be helped but especially with a newborn. Given a little time, if it’s something you really want, you can always look into it down the road. Nothing wrong with being a stay at home mom either though, if you can make it work! Also, can I just say how crazy it feels to be taking about babies and careers and things here? None of this was even in th
  2. I’m all for another reunion! What’s the plan?
  3. Hey everyone! The old OB podcast was mentioned in a chat earlier this morning and I happen to have a complete copy of the episodes that I hosted way back when (I'm not sure if others were uploaded elsewhere after the last one that I have). If anyone is interested in taking a walk back in time to 2011, I've uploaded all of the episodes and a CSV with titles, descriptions, and a few stats for each that you can download here: https://www.otakuboards.com/podcast.zip
  4. Hey everyone! I know things here aren't anything like they used to be but I just want to wish any of you who still pop in to visit from time to time the best during these times. I hope you're all doing well, staying safe, and getting through COVID-19's visit to the Earth as best as you can.
  5. It is sad that things are pretty dead here but if it's any consolation, the site itself isn't going anywhere. At the very least, it will remain available as an archive.
  6. Sorry, I just now saw this. Unfortunately, I don't think I'm going to be able to get it back online this time. It uses an absurdly out of date version of Wordpress that's no longer compatible with the version of PHP I'm running. I can make a backup and then see if updating it works but no promises. Edit: That was easier than expected, seemingly anyway. It's back up at the same URL (and now also in the header!) as before and should be working but let me know if it's not!
  7. I'd just like to point out that the last post in this thread was nearly 15 years ago. Given the lack of activity these days, it's really not a big deal but I had to say something given how incredible that time span is...
  8. Looks like I'm rather late to the party but congratulations!
  9. Technically me at this point, I suppose? Did you need something?
  10. That's awesome! Congratulations :)
  11. From what I can tell, it appears to be from KonoSuba: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KonoSuba
  12. The site that hosted this has long since been taken down and the Stitcher link no longer works but I still have the original files. I attached the episode in question for anyone interested. OB Podcast 11 - The Real Stuff Sucks.mp3
  13. I'm really at a loss for words. I unfortunately can't say I knew Des all too well but even still, I remember plenty of conversations we had and projects we worked on together. He was impossible to not like or not get along with and was a pleasure to be around. I didn't keep up with Twitter too well myself so I missed a lot of the updates but I do remember hearing about the cancer but also never made the connection that there was even a chance he wouldn't recover. It's a painful realization to make now. Des, thank you for everything. You'll be sorely missed.
  14. This is a known issue and happens everywhere unfortunately. The upgrade from version 3 to 4 seemed to not like a lot of the older posts and the choice was to either lose huge chunks of them or revert them to their HTML states and hope that the bug would be fixed at some point. That's where we still are at the moment.
  15. I don't know enough about how to comment on art to give you more than "these look really good" but they do look really good :) The markers appear to have been worth the wait because the skin in all of these is spot on. I miss the former activity levels of this place but it's nice to see people stop by and share every once in a while!
