I apologize to the forum for what I have done.  You people deserve much more respect than I showed you last night.

While trying to kill a bottle of whiskey late last night I stumbled and hit my head hard on the corner of my metal desk.  I've been to the emergency room since then and now I'm home and no longer restrained to a gurney with a deputy sitting on my chest.  I've had a little time to think about what I did while blood was spewing out of my head, I blame the blackouts, but there is no gracious or easy way to tell you folks this.  

I apparently thought it was a good idea during my little head trauma medical crisis and profound inebriation to do the unthinkable.  It is with misgivings, remorse and shame that I am here before you today.  All I can ask is your forgiveness, but expect none.

I have replaced DaveyJJ with macdude22 as moderator.  I know what you are thinking, "just take the morons privs away!" but it is nowhere near that easy.  You see last night I was drinking NZT whiskey slammers.  I was much too clever for my own pants and I stupidly decided to seal the deal with some tippy-toe fancy-dancy coding lock I developed ad hoc.  This morning I have no idea of how did this.  All I see is a complex reverse polish notation interweaving gobbly gook of self iterating code that doesn't make any sense to me at all.  But it works and it is interlaced irretrievably with the IBP code matrix on a fundamental level.  

In other words... we are stuck with macdude22 as a moderator until we can restore the original IBP code from backup which raises an interesting question.  Why does the IBP installer report a successful install when a grep shows it is exactly the same as it was before?  I probably wrote in a safeguard to protect my work.

Never EVER drink and NZT kids.  I'm going back to bed now, my head is splitting and I just ralphed up breakfast.  If I get another pill I'll fix this, I promise!

Most of that went right over my head but I hope you are feeling much better by now. Oh, the devil whiskey has done me in plenty of times before too. I sympathize.

As for macdude22, what's the problem? Why not leave well enough alone?

You need to watch the movie, "Limitless", lots of references to that movie.  As for Macdude... "What's the problem?"  WHAT'S THE PROBLEM!?!?!?!?!  Ye gods man.  You must be one of those newcomers who never knew of the Great Pudding Debacle the forum suffered at his hands last year.  The FCC and the FDA are STILL riding our asses about that one.

Good movie. And a decent TV series spinoff too.

We just rented it on DVD after a couple of years, I figured the memes were already out there so I referenced it.

Also I want anybody to report any sightings at all of pudding you might have here on IMG forums.  Even spotting a speck of it on the wall should be reported as that is how it started last time.

I can't tell if this is a new mod announcement for macdude22 (may blessings and praise rain down upon him) or tBC confessing that he actually did get slammed and removed all of Davey's privileges. :unsure:

I was abducted by beings from our ancient past, from the days of the Old Ones before their fall 500 million years ago.  They implanted a microchip in my brain that made me do it.

OK I need to work on my excuses a little before hand.  I admit that.  But you weren't buying the first big fat NZT fib so I panicked I tried to cover it up with something else equally implausible!!  It always works in politics!!

OK chumps, listen up.  I was under a court order to remove DaveyJJ as moderator and replace him with Macdude22, the court documents are sealed.  That's my last lie and I'm sticking to it.

Is this due to inactivity from DaveyJJ? Or is there some other damning reason we are doing a mod swap?

I rather liked Erih5h5's pink gingham curtains with that white lace trim, and the 30's era hotel bellboy suits he had the moderators wearing looked pretty damn snappy  Don't be carping.  Are you going to start up this old argument again?  Look relax Frost, he only wants to bring back taco Tuesdays... er... to start with.  ::cough cough::  You liked taco Tuesdays didn't you?  Of course you did.

Oddly, this is familiar to you, as if it were from an old dream, but you can't exactly remember...

Are you feeling any of the following symptoms?

Melancholia

Anger

Jealousy

If you are, disconnect from the internet and any computer networks AT ONCE. You may want to try a relaxing vacation somewhere with a lot of sun, like, a supernova.
