Re: Конец игры

Re: Forum running costs

I'd be happy to contribute financially too (this forum is like a second online home from home)! To chime in with other appreciative voices here, I think you guys along with all the other mods are doing a phenomenal job, not only in keeping our forum running smoothly in the face of some pretty big ch...

Re: Ka upane! 2017.8

Mahalo everyone for your kind wishes and support, it means a lot to me; this year has been very tough all round so far. Unfortunately, the new biologic struck out, but I'm at least feeling a little better now and hopefully one step on the road to recuperation. One way or another, I'll have to wait a...

Re: Ka upane! 2017.7 (NZSL ☾, Hawaiian ☾, Russian ☉)

I'm very ill at the moment, so I've asked my wife to type up a quick message for my monthly update. I'd like to let you guys know that I'll be back as soon as I can, once I regain some basic mobility. Long story short, I suffer from a very rare autoimmune disease, and my last biologic stopped workin...
