Those who have known me at Mortal Kombat Online (and even back when it was called MK5.ORG) know that with the work I do on the site, I need to do a complete disconnect every once in a while or I suffer from burnout. Usually said vacation occurs a month or two after the last major game’s release. Unfortunately, my last real vacation from the site was shortly after the release of Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks. I kept meaning to take a vacation from the site after the release of Mortal Kombat: Armageddon, but with Scott Howell resigning as webmaster and various other things, said vacation never happened, and now I’m closer to burnout than ever before.
So, after talking to CCShadow last night, I’ve decided to take a month away from the site and channel. As soon as I’ve finished this post, I’ll leave #mortalkombat (leaving MKBot there just in case), close the channel stats page, and be a hermit, so to speak. I’ll still be available to everyone for non-MK-related issues (if you know where to find me… heh), but otherwise I’m doing as much of a disconnect as possible so I can return refreshed and ready for the build up to Mortal Kombat 8.
So, for the most part… to those of you in the MK community, I’ll see you all in a month or so. :-)
