I still love you Something Awful Forums, I've been working on DOOM HOUSE 3: 0: ORIGINS and also I had a major series of health problems (my mom has some rare form of leukemia and I apparently lack any cartilage between the vertebrae at the base of my neck!), but I have not abandoned the forums! It's just really sucky at the moment because the combination of no revenue coming in and being stuck in bed for a solid week and trying to figure out how to help my mom get into a clinical lab trial for some new leukemia test drug (which costs loving $25,000 a YEAR, after health care, out of pocket, for a loving TEST TRIAL) has been really exhausting this month and I've been crummy. BUT I just wanted you to know that I'm still here and trying to create things that don't cost money that will make money because I have no money and there is no fun in the sun for this plump boy. If you want to help out, just buy any forums stuff or use the forum donation thingy up top or whatever, if you don't want to then you don't have to.

Here's a little bonus treat sneak preview from DOOM HOUSE 3: 0: ORIGINS

I don't know, I just had x-rays taken and they kept asking me if I've been in a car accident because my neck bends the wrong way(?) and I either have very low amounts or no cartilage between the vertebrae at the base of my neck (for some reason?), which is awesome because my health care costs nearly $1000 a month and has a $8000 deductible and doesn't pay for poo poo, so it's a fun time to be quasi-alive indeed.

It's weird because the amount of bandwidth the forums use have increased and increased, but the revenue has dropped and dropped, so I guess I'm running a site that is no longer sustainable due to the fact that it is not perceived as being worth money!

don't burn yourself out lowtax

also sounds like you could use some donations for your mom if she's too proud to accept it herself. taking care of a sick parent is hard! i'll buy a 10bux towel.

Nah, we don't make hardly any money from merchandise, if you'd like to donate it's far more beneficial to just donate. Of course I get taxed on that, and I'm already like $1,0000000,00000 in tax debt, but I never once claimed to be good at business so why start now

If we register the forums as a charity you wouldn’t have to pay taxes on any of it.

I blame millennials and their iPhone Xs. The app lets everyone make a thousand posts a day every day whenever they're bored waiting in line or having sex or driving.

I'm sorry about life Mr. Tax, I'll buy a towel or something.
