Where In The World Is Carmen...Uh,...Sir Richard of Dale?

A New Video Game? No...just me saying:

Hey Sir Richard...you got me started on limericks...and what? You've gone on vacation? Just missing your smiling verses...is all! We need all the bards we can sweet talk into ongoing words of inspiration.

Donna, did you see this post from Richard a few days ago?

"Lord Richard has a good ring to it, or Baronet even Count. You can buy these titles now."

We need to change his title. Baronet Richard, where art thou?

Baronetting the Richard now, eh? Too few clothes for my taste (eh?) (Gotta practice speaking Canadianese before they take over down here, eh?)

My lord, I'm still quaking with shock at the concept of Unk posting in his undies ..... let us not have any other baring of souls, exposing all manner of things to the world.

Lest those covered only with sheets flapping bravely in the breeze also be exposed.... Hmmmn. Wait a minute.

On the other hand, let us not restrain expressions of any sort, including the expressions of those who choose to wave sheets in the wind. Let us hope for more windy days. Very windy days.

Donna, your "where in the world" got me to thinking....where is Melissa, Dave22, Gina, Dan Hunt, Areseejay and so many others? Even Paul N. is missing in action. Maybe some have gone the way of the anonymous poster?

-- Gayla Dunbar (privacy@please.com), November 01, 1998.

Some may be lurking, some may be gone for a while, some are gone for good. I know of one who told me personally that he'd not be posting for some time, due to the responses of some others to his messages. I think he was just tired. I must say, I miss his knowledge and opinion.

I'm not sure why I keep coming back myself. Seems most of the ground has been covered. Most of us will not be changing our stance on Y2K until something big happens or doesn't happen. This certainly is a lively place to hang out - maybe that's the reason. Maybe one day I'll get bored with it and move on.

-- Mike (gartner@execpc.com), November 01, 1998.

Don't need to change any stances, need to be exposed to more information, at least until I know everything there is to know about everything else.

Or get to heaven, whichever comes first.

Simple explanation, I just use my work computer, don't have one at home, therefore weekends are spent off the air. PS unlike Yanks (is that a pejorative term) we Brits are incredibly lazy and don't work weekends. PPS don't even have a TV!

gayla, thanks for thinking of me. i am still here, every day, can't get away. like you I post new questions when I have info that can be supported by facts. i am new to internet, do not have, as of yet access to the info you have. am working on it.

some things i have noticed, people here are more on edge than they used to be. ie; more attacks/less facts. i hope that changes, not sure it will.

i am here to try to gauge (is spelling correct?) the size of the storm headed our way. am not into philisophical new age b.s.

i hope things are ok in your part of texas.

Hi Areseejay! Glad to know you are OK. I know what you mean about the "tempers." I think folks will get even more "irritable" as we get closer to "THE DAY." Sometimes I think I won't post any more either, but that "teacher instinct" is strong. There are new people coming to the forum everyday and I understand how they feel. I remember what I went through when I first realized the implications of Y2K. I hope we can help lots of people realize they aren't crazy, and they're not alone.
