I miss this site too. Maybe we should start an 'update' thread...so much has changed since I first started posted on here.

Hey! There you are! Well, spill it. What's new?


Yes, yes! Do tell!

Ha! Don't get your hopes up it ain't that exciting! :)

Basically I've became a "grown-up". Finished School with a Masters degree, went travelling around Asia, came home, got an awesome graduate job in the Oil & Gas industry as an Applied Physicist & Engineer and moved 3 hours north of Glasgow for the job, so I've got my own place! Yaaay! I'm free!

So it's been a busy 8 months! In my second week at my job I got sent to do the Offshore Survival training, I had no idea what this was until I got there and realized this included Helicopter Underwater Escape Training! Such an intense experience, and I was pretty terrified during it...luckily there was lifeguards there to make sure I actually escaped and didn't drown! :lol:

Now just to convince Hugh Jackman to marry me...

I think I would die of anxiety before the water ever got to me. Kind of a laugher, really; I'm a ship's office but a lousy swimmer. Another non-swimming officer told me once, "think of it as having a very vested interest in keeping the boat afloat."

Sorry, but I first read that as, "helicoptor UNDERWEAR escape training." My bad :oops: .
Oh Steve, it seems like it was just yesterday you were a busy student cramming for exams. Man time sure does fly. Congrats on the job.

I'm here!! I'm here!!! I too stop in from time to time and hope that the guys come around. I miss this place terribly. I found another site but those guys are so mean, and I don't do face book, so that aspect of SA is out for me.

It is hard to keep this place going. Supposedly, there are 4,971 users registered with the site, but only a handful post here. Maybe we need a troll to spice things up...lol.
