Sal's had been so intertwined with young me's development for so long it's funny to me how I'm still drawn to make this post even though it's been like three and a half years since my last one. In that time I've become a homeowner, gotten married, adopted a dog, and yet nothing drew a post out of me til now. Coming up on a year ago now the pieces slid into place for me and I saw the clearest picture of myself to date. In my first few years here as a freshly minted member I was a proud witness to more than a few forumers finding themselves and it's only taken me a decade to catch up. Sometimes I can only shake my head at young me but then again, who am I to judge? I forget how long ago it was but at one point this year I made a semi-subtle status update alluding to the subject of this post but deleted it after being surprised by a facebook chat invite to a group of slammers. Real life name meets internet folk, you know how it goes.
So I guess this is take two? I'm split between sharing a fundamental part of myself with a scattered group I considered friends and the status quo of shutting in. But today was rough for me, all I want to do is eat again or watch more Netflix. And I'm just about out of whiskey. There’s this weird duality where it feels like I’ve had to grow up so fast while dealing with doctors and insurance for the first time, and yet I’m experiencing at the same time the rollercoaster of self-discovery and emotions I would’ve associated with middle school. Whether it's today with you or a year from now with literally everyone else, I'll have to get used to trusting in people's goodness. And so, with more time on my hands than ever, I ask this one question: do you think there's a prominent trans slammer I might have been aware of? You know, asking for a friend.

So for charity, I will be boxing in an amateur fight on the 21st of March. I'm telling you this because you will be able to watch it on youtube, so I will post that for everyone to see. But as it's for charity, I need to do my bit. If you want to donate anything my page is http://justgiving.com/matthewzacharyfletcher
It's the first time of combat sport I've ever been involved in and I'm really excited to see how it goes! I'm really into boxing and watching fights and breaking them down punch by punch. Watching boxers weaknesses and strengths and seeing how they do with all that I know. Recently I made a bet on the McGregor vs Cerrone fight and won £300 based on a first-round win by McGregor in the first half of the round.
Just wanted to add if you haven't already considered it go and follow this topic if you're interested because it just keeps growing and growing.
So I've been pretty quiet recently, and that's not the fault of anyone here. Life ticks on and mine has been doing that. I stopped running my own business after the shop's bills were so astronomically high that finding profit was getting more and more difficult. I started working for a DIY/Hardware store in the UK, got promoted, and I'm working towards another promotion.
2019 saw the birth of my son Zachary, an absolute diamond of a baby boy and the best thing to ever happen to me.
Unfortunately, my relationship with my then-fiancee didn't quite work out. So back to being free and single, but I still have Zachary, and that's all that matters.
I got fat, fatter than usual. So now I'm trying to cut back and be a good boy. I've got a boxing match coming up in March for charity, and that looks like it's going to be pretty epic.
ik spreek een beetje nederlands
mijn nederlands is niet goed
this has become a life update thing. It's weird reading back on them and being like oh yea that happened random.
and in a previous blog said i was 'banging a total hottie'...
who is now my girlfriend and i remember my head space at the time and why i would say something like that (i was semi just taking the P one fifty five, but still) and looking back that's messed up and I would never even have those thoughts cross my mind about her now. Not that I've matured (i wish), just the way I perceived her was way off base with who she was, and that's crazy.
random how sheets change
and random how much I'm changing my sheets for this girl (apparently they sposed to be changed like more than 1nce a year)
hhaha I'll look back at that sentence^ and either laugh or cry, depending how this relationship goes. It's not on the rocks, but due to things said above (my perception of her, and even her perception of me), it means our relationship is built on a rough start. We don't have that tale of falling in love. Not that it should be all hollywood, but it's just not a nice story if someone asks how we met.
Thoughts? Every time someone would ask "How did you guys meet?" it would be this awkward, bringing back a lot of bad memories experience for both of us.
Is this doomed?
Is this good? Can we outlast anything if we got past this?
I wrote up some code for a post (further explanation there) and thought it was too interesting to not use for a Sal's-based post. Querying the word "Salmoneus" against my code resulted in the above image, where the green items are "closer" in meaning/presence to Salmoneus, while the blue are furthest; although I think it's interesting to consider the central axis more of a mirror than anything. The items in the middle are closest to 90 degrees with Salmoneus - interestingly enough words like "sensibility" and "micromollusk"
I want to know if "hotness" is in fact close to Salmoneus, where are our old members like Vera (oh wait that was Co-Z) or Miss Death (oh wait she might be dead) or KITTENBLOB
I just turned 24 a couple of days ago.
Just reread a bunch of my old blog posts and there was a post commemorating my 15th birthday. It's funny to read this old journal and see what I was like - some real teenage angst back there but some of the stuff that I posted about 9 years ago is still important to me (I posted a lot about Daria 9 years ago and I just contributed to a Daria fanzine a couple weeks ago).
Also I really don't want to see this forum die so here's some content.
HEY GUYS! I'm back. Zazzy gave me an oldschool bond for a week; anyone else playing oldschool still?? #SALS_CC #SALMONEUS_LIVES
I made a Patreon and am slating myself as producing Generative Art & Critical Thinking-based posts, but I've got 3D printing ideas and a lot of other stuff going around; if y'all have any thoughts (critical!! I wanna hear them!!) about my first post I'd love to hear them. Link is here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/24773177
Anyways, enough about me, what's everyone been up to lately? I miss Runescape and the community here; crazy how it's been over a decade for (almost? I'm guessing EVERYONE) the typical user here! Weird growing up around a video game as our common interest. Talking about playing Castle Wars is way more fun than talking about beer, drugs and the weather
yep. literally it. im 22 now. i feel like im 37. i'll probably come back once a year just to update my blog title since it'll bug me not to. but yeah. doing my masters now at kings college. ive actually grown up a lot. i used to be very anti relationship and made it clear to any sexual partners what situation was. now i've opened up. how about that. living at home now. absolutely hate it. gonna have to struggle through this for 2-3 years before i can afford to move out. hope you lot are doing good. aiming to turn amateur in mma and muay thai in 2019. see you all in a year. happy holidays
It's not like I'm disappearing off the face of the earth (although I will be soon), there's just a myriad of contributors.
I still check these forums nearly every day and I'm not sure why. It's a shame the community here has disappeared, but I guess we all move on at some point. I was just 11 years old when I first joined these forums in 2007 - I've spent more than half my life as a member of this community and in a way you could almost see me grow up just going through my post history, as cringe as it is. So I guess here is my first reason - there is nothing drawing me here anymore. All of my old friends from the "good old days" have disappeared. There is no new content or any sort of thriving community to be a part of. It sucks to say but it's the truth, unfortunately. I'll still check on a rare occasion but I won't participate and soon I won't be able to even if I wanted.
Second reason would be that I've finally maxed on RuneScape. I've played this game for about 13 years (12.5 on the same account) and everything that was drawing me to continue playing has now been completed. I'm not interested in any mindless grind or completing all the quests - I'm satisfied knowing I got 99 in all my skills. Finally.
Thirdly, I'm joining the New Zealand army in January as an officer. I won't be able to play any games or check any websites for the next year. This is the primary reason, because I'd probably still bum around if I wasn't busy doing anything else.
If any of you guys wanna stay in touch, flick me a PM and if I feel like I know you well enough we can exchange social media/whatever. Otherwise, au revoir!
P.S. screenshots weeow
To whoever reads this, this blog will be my story of how I lost my bank, and what actions I'm taking to re-build that bank. This is more for my personal reference, but some of you may like the idea behind it.
It all started when I received a message from a stranger, asking me how much my Santa Hat is currently worth. Usually I ignore these messages, but I thought, hey why not be nice and let him know, so I did.
We then got into conversation about how I made my money, how long I've had the Santa, and just general small talk. He then spoke about his money making, firstly bosses (which I'm not too interested in high level PVM) and how he makes money from "Tree People", before directing me to a video of how this works.
The idea behind such is simple. You sit in the GE of a busy world, before someone contacts you, asking if you'd like to make a bit of money. You accept, and follow a few steps which I will cover later. The end goal of such, is the lurer gives you some money, and some telegrab runes, which you use to grab a pile of cash from behind a tree, where you will ultimately meet your demise - but before you telegrab, you hop over the Wilderness wall and return to safety, 200M richer.
This is the point where, I make an uncharacteristically stupid move. I think, "Hey, why not, seems easy enough". The guy I was talking too had been hopping around a few worlds, and messages me to let me know he's found someone. I take a point and watch. Everything goes smoothly, and he's made 200M+
Now, at this point I owe my brother 160M for some Ascension bows that I lost a while back, so see an opportunity to make some easy money, so I set about waiting. I finally get a message from someone, and I hop and meet him in a different world.
We run through the steps at a dummy level, hop over the wilderness wall, establish a safe buffer, and he asks me to cast a telegrab spell to make my character turn and face him. Everything works fine and dandy, and we return to the bank.
So, I withdraw my Santa, Nox Bow and Nox Staff as asked. We pay a quick visit to Mr Ex to give myself a skull as asked, and drain my prayers. His alternate account trades me some 10 Cursed Energy (which works as a teleblock) and hop over the wilderness wall.
At this point, again, I am asked to cast telegrab on him, so I do. I then find myself being propelled towards the group of people sat behind that tree, and get killed before I have a chance to kiss my beloved Santa goodbye. I've now lost just under 900M within a matter of seconds.
I walk away and have dinner, contemplating what to do next. I consider buying bonds to make everything back, (which, at 21p per mill, would cost me £189), but decide against it.
I look through my bank, sure enough, there's some dusty melee equipment that I don't ever use, and some misc items, 120 Firemaking logs, Clue loots and so on. I've got enough to buy back my bow, so I do so. I complete whatever clues I've got stored away in the hope of a quick dye to make it all back, but no luck.
After much debating, I've decided that the first thing I need to do, is get the Golden Gold Accumulator, and set about camping at Godwars Bosses. Getting the titles is something I've always wanted to do, so why not make the best of a bad situation and go for this. The only downside is, this cost 1,500,000 tokens. At this point, I was only on about 600,000. So I spend a day doing large floors, and claw my way up to 1,000,000, in between Farming runs to steadily build the cash balance up.
I also seize the opportunity to attempt money making methods that I've never tried before, and will detail these in my next blog. As for now, and for a constant reminder to myself and anyone else, if anyone ever approaches you with a "Get Rich Quick" plan that involves Dangerous areas, your Valuable items, or anything else, no matter how safe it can seem, it probably isn't...
