post #2101 of 11102
Guys, I got a little bit of bad news from my doctor today. I went in to get my hearing checked and he told me that I may be going deaf. They are going to be running a bunch of test to be sure but the chances are that I am going to go deaf. It's not an overnight thing but I will need to wear hearing aides soon. I wanted to tell you guys because I think of all of you not just as my team mates but as a part of my extended family. I also wanted to tell you because I wont be on this thread all that much of the next week or two. I am going to PM all of you my phone number in case you need to get a hold of me for any reason. I am not telling you this because I want you guys to pity or feel bad for me. To the contrary actually. I do not want you guys in any way shape or form to feel bad for me please. I will talk to all of you later and you all should have a PM in your message box by the time you read this post.

I didn't send you a PM about it because I already sent you my phone number in a couple of other PM's earlier this week lol. Besides, long distance calling between the UK and US is a little pricey lol.

I get up to 100 international minutes per month on my mobile account...in addition to 000's of free inclusive calls to mobiles and landlines... We normally call Taiwan and Canadia, but have also used it to call USofA and Australia among other places...


Was going to look for the plan I have, but it seems that Orange have stopped giving you a list of what you can get online - or at least the one I have...

They say "if it's too loud, your too old" I say "If it's too old, lose your hearing and turn your hearing aide down". lol

Edit: is everything ok Cait? Your system down or are you doing a bigbeta Wu? Trying for one of those 400,000+ point Wu's? It's worth it so if your not then I suggest that you try it. How's everyone else doing? It's been quiet in here for a while. Check in if you all can and let us know your still kicking.

I go in for my hearing test tomorrow morning so wish me luck. Hopefully they don't tell me bad news because I don't think I could handle to hear that I need hearing aides just right now. I mean it would be nice to get that monthly check from uncle Sam each month but at what cost to me? I'll come and post here after my appointment and let you all know how it went so try and post here so I don't have to edit my last post again lol.

Edit 2: so I got done with my hearing test and they say I need a hearing aide for my right ear. I can't hear high frequency sounds out of my right ear and my left ear is borderline hearing aide material too.

Edit 3: (Really, 3 add on edits because you guys aren't on here anymore? What's going on guys? Is everyone ok?) I just found a silver lining to the fact that I have to get hearing aides. I can get these new Bluetooth hearing aides that I can connect to my cell phone and answer calls on and I can connect it to my PS3 and use it as a headset lol. The mic is embedded in the hearing aide and resides completely inside of my ear. So it is a really clear means of communication. Ohhh and I can connect it to my Ipod touch and any tablet or notebook computer that I get in the future. I'm starting to be ok with it. The Navy is going to purchase the top of the line hearing aides for me for about $3500 give or take. I even get somewhat of a choice since I'm seeing a civilian doctor out in town and they listen to your request much better than the navy does lol. So hopefully, I'll be able to get the Bluetooth ones. That would be freaking sweet. I'd always be worried that big brother is listening in though lol.

Sounds like those hearing aides won't be that bad after all. I'd rock um just just for the functionality, but sucks it serves a bigger purpose.
Anyways I'm doing good here, busy getting classes (17 units!) and working to dam much...

Also been having some problems with my card. Occasionally i get a failure dialog that FahCore.exe has failed. I just click close and then it keeps folding normally from where it was. Weird but it means if it pops up and I don't check my computer in the next how ever many hours it will not be earning any points...is there any simple script or anything I could have run and close it automatically? Only thing is says in the log is something like Enum mismatch...

I'm trying to get in the habit of checking periodically from my phone via teamviewer but its getting annoying and I sometimes forget.

There is an option in HFM to send you an e-mail notification if/as/when any of the (monitored) clients EUE or hang, but you'd need to know what SMTP server details you could use... From memory it is Edit --> Preferences --> Reporting...

I told Larry that (in our extended PM thread) and he was able to get it to work using his OC'd account on here....
