Just saying hi. I haven't been in a jedi forum for some years and thought I'd peek in. For those that were around back in the day, I used to go by GrtWhtShark. I was heavily involved in the Jedi Realist Academy, which looks deserted now. So hello to all, and if you might be an old familiar face, stop by and say hi.

Well, right now I am still recovering from having lost my right leg below the knee. I'm trying to to some connecting with my past. How are you?

That is a big adjustment I can imagine. What happened, if you don't mind sharing? It's ok if you don't want to though.

It's nothing horribly dramatic. I had an e treme infection brought on by complications from diabetes. Even had a run in with a bit of flesh eating strep. I have a prosthetic leg, but after a month, I'm still learning.

Strep is nasty! It's amazing what it can do. Hell, my dad had a blood infection from a strain of strep he got from biting his cheek (the best guess at least) that landed him in the hospital for 6 weeks on a constant penicillin infusion. There are some powerful bugs out there. I'm sure you'll get the hang of the bionic leg it just takes time.

From what I can see, it seems like all the older Jedi sites have closed now. I've looked.

Some of the older sites have been archived here if you want to wax nostalgic. jediliving.com/jediarchive/

No. I'm not looking to wax nostalgic. I was looking for old friends, mostly. I was an instructor and deputy Head master of the Jedi Realist Academy. Luna Rising, the head mistress, was my old master. There were many students and much wisdom there.

Quite a few old folks stop in here with varying frequency.
