Ralf Maximus - MIA?
« on: February 17, 2008, 04:39:54 PM »
Or simply put, where is Ralf?  :)

I thought he was one of DC's more entertaining/knowledgable members. I can't help but notice there's been no sign of him since the Codetrucker threads where things got a bit heated. I don't know him well enough to PM him  - so, where is Ralf?

I saw a recent post from him somewhere on the forum a couple days ago, just don't remember where...

He is online right now, so it's time to pester him with PMs ;D

I was going to PM him a week ago... And then I thought : he's just busy...  :)
Ralph : come back and say hi!  :-*

Here is how you get him back...

Top 10 reasons why Ralf Maximus hasn't been posting:

10. He is boycotting the Post cereal company for not including enough raisins in their raisin bran, and avoiding anything that says 'post' on it, including the button on the forum that submits posts.

9. He has been very busy with his new venture, DonationHaiku.

8. He's stuck in a massive Wikipedia click adventure, currently has 500 tabs open and new ones opening by the minute, and will post as soon as it ends, if it ends.

7. He discovered StumbleUpon and can't stop stumbling.

6. He will post as soon as he finishes singing 'The Song that Never Ends'.

5. He has been trying to install Linux.

4. He has been trying to install Vista.
3. He has been kidnapped by a very hungry flock of coin eating birds, and they are holding him ransom.

2. He is still waiting for The Horizon of Infinite Space to load, and will post as soon as he plays the game.

1. (reserved for Ralf's answer)

Seriously though...I miss him too.

I heard from Ralf: He's ok, dealing with some issues in life, and will be back soon.  :up:

... I don't know him well enough to PM him...,

FYI - I have made it a regular habit to PM members I don't know very well.  That's how I got to know them. :D  Sometimes they reply and sometimes not, but I always try!

Glad to hear Ralf is maintaining.  Facing some "issues of life" myself, I wish him the best and hope to see him back. :Thmbsup:
