OK guys, a few weeks ago, irons quit for good. So, post when you think he's coming back. Price-is-right rules, winner gets, oh, I don't know. Maybe that scenery in the sewage set that looks like a trophy.

I say, before Memorial Day. Since I have to pick an actual day, I'm going with September 4. He'll be back at school by then and long whistfully for the old temptress.

Either september 18th or septebmer 11th, the latter for a backdrop of one of his little gimmicks.

EDIT: Do we get a bonus prize if we guess what his next name will be too?

What the heck? You picked *two* dates?

Bob Barker: Shadowbreaker, what do you bid on this lovely ring?
Shadowbreaker: I bid either $500 or $700, Bob
Bob: WTF?
Rod: WTF?

He has 'left' 3 times already, this is his 4th. No need to ask things like that, well never know.

Bob: WTF?
Rod: WTF?
Rod Roddy is dead and Bob Barker retired from The Price is Right.

But seriously, WTF?

Because he's got extreme emotional issues. He left this time because he got 5th in the mapmaking contest.

Seriously.

there is this thing called life that happens mostly away from the internet, while the allure of marathon is strong i support his effort to move on and do more productive things in his life. one of these days ima do the same. that said when he has more balance in his interests i'll bet he plays a bit pokes his head in from time to time, but i won't put a date on that.

I don't think you're taking my post seriously enough. This is the Internet!

It's true. He hasn't left the computer, for one, and two, he literally told me that he left because his contest map didn't place well.

Man, you're quite a card.

But he did move on to more productive things! Helping me with NitsLoch is a far better use of his time ;)

As far as I am aware, Irons has wiped everything related to Marathon from his machine, and he doesn't plan on returning to it. I wouldn't expect that to mean the end of JUICE development, or the end of his involvement with Marathon, but I'm indicating what I know.

I managed to recruit his help in creating a template for the Nuke & Pave Website, so it's not like he's joined the Sunshine Cult or Followers of Squiggy or anything.

Can't blame a guy for taking a break, though I can't help but be impressed by the spectacular fashion in which he did (does?) it.
