    I meant to get around to sending you insulting netmail, but figured
    the iron fist needed a rest. ;)

    You know I'd read it, laugh, then send you an insulting netmail right back.

    After all, it was you who christened me the Iron Fist(TM). XD

    We're back in lockdown. Thankfully I'm getting an hourly wage
    right now driving the transit on demand passengers. (Local bus
    company no longer runs the bus on routes that have less then 20
    passengers an hour). Yesterday I drove 6 passengers in 9 hours.
    Thank god for BIL's netflix account that lets me download episodes
    at home. :)

    Sounds as exciting as my life. I'd work if I could but nope. Gotta sit here and deal with being stuck.

    Later,

    I have my bets placed on a new virtual reality BBS with
    interactive HD ANSI art... ;)

    Nothing like that. VR glasses make me sick.

    No, it's more along the lines that I have done something that I swore for decades that I wouldn't do and I will catch hell from some in here for it.

    :D

    It's pretty boring but at least it's not stressful. 5:30-6:00 is none stop
    then they trickle in rest of the shift.

    Sean,

    for decades that I wouldn't do and I will catch hell from some in here
    for it.

    It's YOUR BBS...you run it the way you see fit. You're not the only BBS
    out there...and that's the way I look at my system.

    Also, with you being a fellow ham radio operator, I've had folks complain about the way I do certain nets. I tell them "Mine isn't the only net out there".

    Or like the 2 memes:

    1) The young woman was bawling in tears, and said "I said to him 'It's me
    or the radio!!', and he said '73' and left"!! <G>.

    2) Son: Dad!! You have to come home right now!!
    Dad: Son, I can't. I'm in the hospital, and very ill.
    Son: Mom is selling all your ham radio gear for what you told her
    you paid for them!!

    So, here's a man, running out of the hospital, clothed in only the
    "gown that ties in the back", and it looks like "he's exposed in the
    front". :P
