Hi[edit]

I've been on the board for over a year and there has never been a meeting. Are we going to ever have a meeting? ShabiDOO 12:29, 8 November 2023 (UTC)

@Shabidoo Again, all I can say is, "I hope so." Spud (talk) 14:10, 8 November 2023 (UTC)
So is this a case that someone simply has to be proactive and call a meeting? I don't understand why a board, whose purpose is to meet, is not meeting. ShabiDOO 15:42, 27 November 2023 (UTC)

You got reelected as moderator.[edit]

Signature[edit]

Apologies for the signature. I'm trying to get a nice boxing, but for some damn reason it's leaking in other pages. Do you know a place where i could test that without bleaching every page i sign on? --

@TheAlePower Try doing it on your own talk page. Spud (talk) 13:29, 17 December 2023 (UTC)
Indeed, that could work. Thanks for the tip! --

I might put in for a job that means I have to move[edit]

I have a recommendation for a job, no guarantee. The position would mean I have to move a ways away. Not a million miles, but like probably 300-400 miles. I'm really honestly conflicted, and I can't bother people on Christmas. I think I have to take it, at least fire off my application for it. I am guessing by context you have taken a job away from home. I don't think it would hurt that bad, but I could use a take on leaving home. Perspective, I moved a lot as a kid, have not as an adult. Torrent (talk) 08:04, 26 December 2023 (UTC)

@Torrent I'll get back to you on that. For now, apply for the job. After all, you don't have to take it. Spud (talk) 13:48, 26 December 2023 (UTC)
@Torrent I said I'd get back to you. I've been busy with leaving one job and starting another and with moving into a new place.
I've lived and worked in foreign countries since 1997, pretty much my entire adult life. And I'd really wanted to live and work abroad ever since I was 13. Leaving home and making a new home somewhere else was something I was very much looking forward to.
I'm also guessing you're talking about moving from one part of the United States to another part of the United States. So, although I'm sure I'd be wrong to say you won't be facing any cultural differences, they won't be as extreme as the cultural differences I've faced. And I might be wrong, but I'm also guessing it won't be too difficult or expensive for you to travel back to see your family, if you want to.
Let me know if I can be of any more help to you. Spud (talk) 10:04, 7 January 2024 (UTC)

Is everything alright?[edit]

Hi, Spud, how's everything? I'm getting increasingly worried about the risk of war between China and Taiwan in the near future, especially since 1 Xi is proving that he isn't as smart as everyone thought. 2 The fact that the Chinese economy is halting and 3 and most important, the West apparently cares a lot less than we though, especially the US (see my my last WIGO). How are the Taiwanese press and people treating the tension between the two countries? GeeJayKWhere all evil dwells Where every lie is true 03:13, 14 January 2024 (UTC)

@GeeJayK Thanks again for your concern.
I'll tell you this. My friend and former supervisor at Chang Gung University, a former colonel in the Taiwanese army, decided to get out of Taiwan because of risk of invasion by China. He is currently a visiting professor at the University of Nottingham in the UK. When that comes to an end in September 2024, he plans to retire and move to Ireland. He wants his young son to become an Irish citizen (and hence an EU citizen) so that he won't have to go into the Taiwanese army. He asked his adult daughter to come with him and she refused. She is a doctor in the Taiwanese army.
Everybody else that knows him seems to think he's worrying about nothing.
Since November, I've been a bit wrapped up in the process of starting a new job. I didn't even know there was going to be an election until last Thursday. But I can't say that I've noticed much of a change in how people are feeling or behaving.
Again, I promise you that I'll get out if things get dangerous. Spud (talk) 03:36, 14 January 2024 (UTC)
