    so I did. wow very different around here, the biggest difference in years. good to see a lot of old face (aka screen names). I hope this site can get back to the awesomeness it once was. not to say its bad now, just saying a few years ago it was pretty over the top awesome. like best forum I've ever been on awesome. like F*CK the packers awesome. so yeah pretty awesome.

    whats new with me? got married, 1st kid should be here in a few months, its a boy, and already has more bears stuff then his father. lol not really, but still he's off to a better start then me. also i'll probably be painting my mancave bears blue in the near future. wife has been c*ck blocking that idea for a while now, but not for much longer. shes gong to come home from work to a new mancave color, lol

    sorry man i'm not trying to say this site sucks now, i'm just saying it was better back in the day. the bearz bucks were cool, the stuff you could buy with them like the ribbons, teams, and whatever else made it a lot more customizable then most sites. also I really liked the casino, and the arcade was freakin massive. not sure if that stuff is still on here or not, i have not really poked around that much yet. plus all the old threads that have been going for freaking years. but the good thing so far is that its worked a lot faster then it used to. and its better now that its dabears, and not dabearz, makes more sense and easier to remember. also nice ot see the adopt a bear is back.

    thanks Ben! what do you mean new digs? lol I guess I am a newb again.

    The old site went kaboom.... Had to start fresh. Give Ski time and he will get your post count back where it used to be.

    All old threads were basically lost, everyone had to re-register.

    Congrats and welcome back!!
    Yeah, this place isn't as customized as before, but that also caused a lot of site troubles (trying to keep it all working together).

    This place is still awesome, as the fans are the same. This place runs blazing fast, and will get to where we were in time.

    I'm sure I have that pic as well. I just don't know exactly where it's at, but I'm sure I have it in the terebytes of data I have.

    This new site is great. It doesn't have the whistles but it makes up for it with simplicity and speed.

    As for holding out, sounds like you held out to the bitter end. If she waited 10 years she must be a keeper! :D

    Not anymore. I returned in July. I was deployed for over a year if you count some smaller missions, and the TWO deployments.

    I can't say when, but I'm getting ready to leave AGAIN!! Vote Obama if you want to deploy. :D I'm almost retired though. I can't complain given my career and lack of deployments. Just feels weird doing them on the back end of my career.
