Man I am so glad that the Cougar World stuff got transferred somewhere so we would not be without that information.

Lastly Mark if there is anything that we can do once you get up and running to make it smoother for you just let us know.

Thanks again for helping out and keeping us informed.

Will

Mark,

I just found this thread. I have been there, done that. Take care of the important family things first, it's a long exhausting road but it will get better. I look forward to CW opening again, but will patiently wait.

Hang in there!!

I am really not sure this is proper thing to say here under the circumstances but maybe..just maybe some of us can do a little bit more than just being patient in waiting for good news from him? Maybe Mark doesn't want any help or support..I don't know, I am just thinking.

Hi Frugal,

Sorry to hear about your current problems. Its been a while since I was a regular never mind multi-daily visitor to the F4 forum (and in the past the current affairs forum) as alas life has left me virtually no time to play games but I occasionally still pop in to see what's happening in the hopes of one day actually having time to load the last couple of versions of OF and FF and it will be strange to think of F4 without being able to see the usual suspects posting. However real life is always more important and hopefully you can sort out your family situation soon and only when thats done worry about if you want to relaunch the site.

Good luck and best wishes,

Frugal,

I've also been a Falcon4 enthusiast from the very beginning and a FW follower from the very early days. Since I am married and father of 2 kids, my simming is getting less and less due to the lack of time. Missing understanding about my hobby i.e. from my wife is adding to this. Even trying
to join a virtual fighter wings more than once, regulary failed.
Right now, my mother is currently battling cancer,and btw about to loose, I work 50-60 hrs a week,
my older son is having quite some probs in school, and my sister is in the middle of a divorce battle... Simming in these days is farther away than ever.
Meanwhile my X45 is covered with dust, my P8000 still waits to be programmed.
DCS has been installed and deinstalled twice. I havent "flown" in 2 or more years...

But in all this time Frugalsworld was standing solid as a rock. A fortress in falcon world :-)
For 10 years, www.frugalsworld.com is one of the first things I type, when I start my PC.
And it always cheers me up ;-)

With your problems I feel my problems fade in comparison... I perfectly know what "lack of time"
can lead to. And my family is top priority currently. I am even considering to take up simming,
when I finally retire from work (in 200 y ears LOL).

I just want you to know, that I do appreciate so much what you did and do for the falcon community.
Frugalsworld was always a synonym for Falcon4. Without FW Falcon would have never come that far.

But on the other hand we have to see the real life, our family, kids (that grow up so fast,
and need us so much in exactly that time) and realize, that nothing is more important.

Take the time you need. I know exactly, that WE ALL will wait patiently until the time is
right again for Frugalsworld. FW will never decease, it can only take a rest... no matter
how long. And dont forget, disloyalty is by no means an attribute of a real simmer - especially
not of a Falcon4 follower, and DEFINATLY not of a "Frugalsworlder" ;-)

Keep your head up.

Ah, Frugal, just saw this thread. Just want to say that my prayers are for you and your family. FW has been, at times, a sanity saver for me. If it doesn't come back, you have already saved me a couple of times.

Take care of yourself and your kids, God be with you.

Like many of the guys, I have been through the grinder you're going through now. I am very sorry for your pain, and I can only say you have my sympathy.

On the subject of FW, what are your bandwidth needs? Seriously.

Things are getting there. My ex has agreed to sign the house over to me. My new mortgage was approved yesterday and the solicitor will have the papers ready for her to sign before Christmas. The new mortgage will also clear the debts my ex ran up and will reduce my monthly outgoings quite considerably. Once my ex has signed the paperwork my kids will have a secure future.

Meanwhile I have met the most wonderful woman who foolishly thinks that I'm a great catch smile. 2010 looks like it is going to be a good year, well it certainly couldn't be any worse than 2009. I have the week off work between Christmas and New Year and plan on getting FW back up and running during that time.

I somehow believe in karma!
A guy like Frugal that did such a nice thing for so many people will not have a bad life, at all!

May happiness be with you man!
And I'm sure vBeers will be flying all over the place when FW's back!!
