Twitch memes aside, an old friend from years ago returned from his mission a few days ago (he’s Mormon) and posted a sort of reintroduction thread on ZEJ today. Why is this significant? I’ll explain.
Two years ago on May 21, a community veteran going by the handle Ziolang left to go on a religious mission–he’s Mormon, so there’s that–and consequently easy communication with him was broken. He left a lot of things unfinished, but we thought nothing of it because it wasn’t his fault he had to. He was a part of a still-ongoing canon we all (well, most of us) participated in, so we had to explain away his absence.
But today, that changed. Though he was supposed to be back on the 21st (or, back at home, at least), he wasn’t able to make that clear because of a combination of things, not the least of which–understandably–being family commitments. In addition, and this is something nobody ever likes, his computer got hit by a virus and went bye-bye. All that said, however, I have one thing to say about this.
