    What a shitshow... there's no way to tell this story without giving a lot of credit to whoever began DDoSing the forum, back in April of '22, but that was only the beginning of the drama that got us to this point. I unfortunately wasn't able to speak candidly about most of the events since the beginning of the attacks, but that's no longer an issue, so this thread will serve as the explainer.
     
    For those that don't want to read the drama dump that follows, the short of our current status is that the site is back and there are no plans to abandon it. However given the decline of forums in general, and due to the loss of trust that inevitably followed the long period of outage, loss of community data, and lack of transparency provided by myself, Open Carnage is not returning as a "live" site. OC is in a read-only state for the most part. For the next few months or so, existing members can edit their content if they wish to provide any updates that were lost. Anything on OC after April 18th of 2022 is otherwise gone.
     

    Discord Server
    Our Discord server has never been known for its modding discussions. It's served as a general chatroom for the long-time members of the OC community, and made it easy for anyone to keep up to date on new community content. That latter utility is effectively gone with the closing of the forum, and just about any subject for a Discord server can still keep friends together. So what's next? I don't know, but we'll probably try doing something new with it. I'll talk with you guys there!

    For context: I love Dune, as does my brother. I've read the first book countless times and the rest of the (Frank, not Brian) series only once, which I think is a fair reflection on the quality.
     
    My brother lives in Paris where Dune has already opened. UK showings don't start until October 22nd. In the space of one week he:
     
    1) Went to see the movie
    2) Sent me effusive praise for it (while not-so-lightly gloating that he had seen it)
    3) Re-read Dune and Children of Dune
     
    This morning, without commentary, he sent me a picture of a ticket stub for Dune, printed yesterday afternoon.
     
    I am untethered. My rage knows no bounds.

    I was getting ready for work this morning when my wife starting getting some back pain. Two and a half hours later this came out:
     

     
    My favorite part was when the anesthesiologist was getting ready for the epidural and asked the doctor about how much longer they expected. "Oh about 2 or 3 hours." My wife immediately was like "I can feel the head!" and the anesthesiologist quietly loaded up his cart and left.
     
    But anyway they're doing fine and it's all good.

    I arrived back in London and moved into my new place, then spent £200 pounds on sheets. I didn't realise I had picked up the ultra-high thread count ones, the cashier was disarmingly charming, and there was a line behind me.
     
    Fellas, do you think I can deep fry cotton as a sort of caloric toast?

    Stubbed my toe on kitchen island. Threw my head back in pain. Hit my head on kitchen cabinet.
