    hey guys. i've never done lent before, but this year i'm going to do it. the idea of lent is to give something up which is important to you such that everytime you're inclined toward that thing you're giving up, you are reminded to focus on the coming easter season - which happens to be the crutch of christianity. if there is no easter, there is no christianity.

    anyway, i'm giving up spending time on CK5 for lent in favor of devoting more time to study and in this way i'm participating in worshiping my God because i believe he's given me this education and i want to get into it deeper, starting with lent.

    so, until easter you won't be seeing much of me around here except to ask a tech question pertaining to getting my rig if need be, looking for a replacement drivers door or other necessary things. just no browsing the lounge/garage/etc for pass-time.

    i'll check my pm's and whatnot, but the better way to contact me will be to go thru email. it's colbys-at-pdx-dot-edu. :D

    see ya!

    Correct me if I am wrong, I don't think you can cheat on lent. If your giving it up for lent you have to give it up completly.

    who makes rules on lent? it's not discussed in the bible. its simply a commitment between you and God. kind of like fasting... :)

    ok, i'm gone this time. i promise. :D

    I think it's our duty to keep up the comments and PAD's till Colby is back to enjoy this with us, and reveal his inner peace:D
