I don't go on vacations, but I often forget to check the boards. I had a good excuse this time, though - I'm studying! I was having trouble getting a job, so I grabbed an opportunity to do a highly-subsidised TAFE course. The mountains of homework started very quickly (and I also started going to fighter training on Monday as well as Friday, because it's close-ish to school). Anyway, I now have two weeks of holidays, which look to be just as busy but more at home.
I'll try to get on here again, but it'll probably go the same way - I'm on for a few days, then I forget again.
