Hey everyone!  This is your friend Mort doing my quarterly / bi-annual check of the good old Subsistence forums.  I've been going through a lot of changes in my life, and having soo much time to think about everything with the pandemic has me feeling nostalgic of the days in the clan.  So I figured I'd create a thread for this year and see if anyone - like me - is also feeling nostalgic and would love to hear from some old friends.

So, here's my update:


1. I attended and graduated from college two years ago with a bachelors in Physics and Mathematics, and I now work for a company in their Business Intelligence division - managing data, putting together reports, and most recently dabbling with some artificial intelligence and machine learning projects.


2. I got married to my college sweetheart this past January!  I love her and her family very much and both our families have a great relationship with one another.


3. I've just moved into a townhouse and upgraded our internet which is fantastic.


4. I've mostly been playing League of Legends and Minecraft, but I am toying with coming back to RS3 for Archeology, I just don't have a ton of time/willingness to grind for hours on end anymore.  Feel free to hit me up on discord anytime, I've changed my name to ComputerGuru almost everywhere else.  ComputerGuru#6138


5.  My hope is to set myself up over the next few weeks/months to do a bit of streaming and/or recording on the side just as a creative outlet.


I'd love to hear from all of you and see how everyone is doing.  I hope to reconnect with you soon!

Hey! Good to hear from you bud. I check the forums every six months or so.


I just graduated college and about to start a cool full time job working in a national lab. Can't go into too much detail but excited to start my career. I just moved, so I don't have a desk yet, but playing Borderlands 3 and Rocket League when I can.


Joined this clan right before I started high school. Crazy how time flies.

I'm seriously considering petitioning for having smurf's posting privelages removed.

Congratulations on graduating and getting married! It's always good to hear from people in the clan.


I've just finished my second year studying theoretical physics at university, and over lockdown I've been slowly getting back a bit more into RuneScape. I'm starting to look for careers and internships so that's a lot of fun.


I'm still around here and there and my Discord is currently Sean#9387 so feel free to hit me up.

So far so good, I'm pretty casually flirting with maxing so if anyone is ever on my private chat is always open.

2020 has definitely had it's ups and downs for me.

Hoping that next year is gonna be a bit calmer.



Not played RS in a long time, tried getting back into OSRS, but tbh without a community I just couldn't get into it.

Holy sweet baby Jesus, I cannot believe this forum is still up and running! 


Was clearing out my old bookmarks... and here we are. 


It's so nice to see you guys popping on to update each other on what you're up to. 


Guess I'll do the same.... 


I'm back living at home after failing miserably with my mental health during university. My partner of 7 years and I are searching for a place to call our own, but the pandemic has laid into that pretty badly, so we're biding our time til everyone wants to move out of the houses they've been stuck in for months...


It's been a few years of gathering myself back on my feet, and I'm super proud to say that I'm now actually starting a new career journey as a game developer in the QA field. (in fact, I'm in the process of applying for a job at Jagex, and I literally feel like I'm living in a meme or something). 


I finally got my Max cape back in September 2020 on the date of the account's 14th anniversary. Was totally crazy :)


Gotta say that the time I spent in this clan was definitely a formative part of my life, and I'm glad I got to know y'all. I can honestly say that this clan gave me some friends for life that I still talk to on a regular basis.


If you see me online ingame, it's a crap shoot whether I'll reply there or not - I'm usually tabbed out of my private chat :') But I'll jump on the bandwagon - get in touch on Discord if you like <3  I'm randomshadow#4315


In the meantime, stay safe, wear a mask, look after yourselves <3
