*knocks on your screen* Anybody There?
« on: June 14, 2022, 06:59:08 pm »
No posts anyplace since yesterday, so I was wondering if something broke or everybody got visited by Chthulhu but me...

                                                                                     ?

Dang, its echo-y in here... ;D

'ello?

Oh...my old war wound? I got that at The Battle of Dorking. Very nasty affair that was, I can tell you.

Some of us are here, but you can't see us  because you can't see the moderator section. We're working out the kinks in the new engine.

I have always been here…
By the power of caffeine do I set my mind in motion
By the Beans of Life do my thoughts acquire speed
My hands acquire a shaking
The shaking becomes a warning
By the power of caffeine do I set my mind in motion

Spent yesterday morning looking round the (potential) new home with a surveyor. He reckons the sellers underpriced it so they could stop HMO landlords getting it, so we've got a bargain. A wonderful morning!

So yes, I'll be there soon.  ;D

I'm here too, after a slight break for family reasons, and my word isn't the new look nice and fresh.

Also here, just on a wildly different timezone, and as was already mentioned a bunch of activity is going on in the mod section while we get things smoothed out
Still here, just quieter

all indications to date suggest I may not be "all there".
but I'm just sorta processing recent events and recovering.
trying to learn what I can and can't eat again from scratch.
it is what it is. not much worth talking about.

All the time.  I never leave.  Unless evicted. 
Persons intending to travel by open carriage should select a seat with their backs to the engine, by which means they will avoid the ashes emitted therefrom, that in travelling generally, but particularly through the tunnels, prove a great annoyance; the carriage farthest from the engine will in consequence be found the most desirable.

*Whew!*

Sorry, sorry, just got a bit paranoidical there. Glad you all're still about.

R.J., I commiserate, I've ben considered "sparse" for years. nothing one can do about that once they've all decided it's true, but then again, you can get away with more because they just start "considering the source," as it were.

Admiral, Sorry, I know you folks work hard, I just get a bit worried from time to time.

V.C., Sometimes I wonder if you sleep here (j/k)...

Corsair, Please keep up the good work. Sorry if I disturbed y'all.

Thanks for responding, folks, I appreciate the replies.
