Winslow is fun again.  :-D He could simply return to his support group, if there is still an opening.

Apparently the lips and the slim lines are gone again. I was curious where Jeph would take this new style, but I suppose he was not pleased with the results. I can live with it. But I think it is great, that he tries new styles in drawing from time to time.

Melon would recognize the scorpion.  "Stanley!  Where have you been?  Everyone at work has been worried sick about you!"

As for Jeph, he's on the road this week. We shall see where he picks things up.

I do think that this journey has left Winslow with at least two serious and abiding phobias! Still, someone who has had scorpions hibernating in their CPU probably has a good reason for a phobic response to them.

Meanwhile... Hannelore's teasing suggestion doesn't actually surprise me. One thing we've learned over the years is that she actually has a fairly dirty imagination, possibly as compensation for the fact that her mental health issues leave her with few physical outlets.

Still, I do wonder what Winslow wants to do with his 'great body'. I'm sure that May will have plenty of suggestions!

True, but I don't think he could get hired because in that chassis he looks like an underage boy.

To look underage, not actually being it, is mandatory in certain hetero-male-oriented sites. Altough I dontīt know if the same applies to more oppenly oriented ones...

All that, and in one support group I belong to there's a standard question "Do you just need us to listen, or is advice welcome?".
Oh man, I really need for my wife to learn how to ask that question.
I've trained my wife to tell me which she wants.  Usually she wants advice, but sometimes she tells me to just listen (that is: let her run down).  When she's done, including the habitual "and another thing:" final burp/bump, she gets a hug and we both move on.

Well it seems that while Hanners' trip has done wonders for her, it's opened up a whole new mess of troubles for Winslow. I wouldn't be surprised to see a regression in him, going back to a smaller chassis, where the scorpions can't hatch and crawl out of his neck seam.

But Pintsize was in control of that chassis before they left.  It may not be habitable.

I didn't say his old chassis, I just said "a smaller one". And given the change in technology since Winslow was introduced, it might be a case of a different chassis.

Winslow's in a panic, he doesn't want to spend any time shopping around.

"Faye!  Bubbles!  Help me!  Please, hurry!  Load me back into my old chassis then open this one up and whatever's in there that doesn't belong KILL IT WITH FIRE!!  I want this thing sterile before I come back in here!!"

I'm BACK. Apparently I was banned for being a spambot. Whether or not I am a robot (whatever I do not say cannot be used against me in a court of law), I most certainly do not advise you to play some of your favorite games on Kongregate (TM) while drinking a refreshing Coca-Cola (TM). Anyways, back to the usually scheduled content (what schedule, you might ask? The one drafted up in my deranged brain).

I don't think Winslow's quite as OCD as Hannelore. He'd be a normal person level of grossed out, but not "OH GOD LET ME OUT" levels.

Whatever script that was for the "ban" hit me a few weeks ago.  I ended up clearing cookies/cache/everything, reloading, and was able to be back on long enough to contact the admin.  To this day, I don't know exactly what caused it.

What scares me is that if and when I actually am banned, I won't know it.

Re bans; because the Internet has continued to largely ignore IPv6 the pool of IPv4 addresses ran out years ago, there has recently been a substantial increase in the use of NAT at the ISP level.  This means that many more addresses are now being shared, and so addresses previously marked as spam sources are being recycled into use by innocent people.  We no longer ban IP addresses; but we are not removing our old IP bans until it's found necessary, because many of them actually do still block spammers.

The quickest way to get around an IP ban to contact us is simply to try from a mobile or a friend's computer - we can remove an unwanted block very quickly.
