And Now, for my Next Trick: The Vanishing Rakkasan! Commencing LURK/STEATH Mode in T minus 5.4.3... : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Its about that time. I've had a ball on the site ove rthe past year +/- a few months. I've made new freinds, created a few disturbances, and generally had myself one hell of a great time. But, like most parties, all good things must come to an end, and seeing that it's a Monday, and this past weekend just was so quiet on the board, I figure it's time to say Vio con Dios everyone.

I'd like to say thanks to everyone for their time and that I had a blast. In particular I wasnt to Thank: Diane and the Sysops for all their help and support, The Zogster, for the incredible eye-opening posts, and to all those who went before me into the "Great Bandwidth Beyond!"

One last thing for y'all, doomer and polly alike. With Y2K having been a bust, It's easy to forget that there are still forces and issues out there that would like nothin more than to 'bite' you in the ass when you least expect it. No matter what happens, always remember that close freinds and a closer family will always see you through. Stand Strong, Be Strong, and always remember:


Blessings, and as Pinkrock would say Godspeed!

Billy Boy ... thanks for all your great contributions . Think of the last 2 years as a magician's show .... we were watching the left hand , while the right was manuvering unseen with the Y2K dissappearing , and waah la ! You have in it's stead ... take your pick: a) Stock market collapse AND higher interest rates . b) 5-10 year depression AND oil prices stay high ! c) Military in total disarray , as vets leave in droves AND China takes Taiwan . d) Russia takes all of Cacusas oil fields AND joins (helps) Iraq/Iran take Saudia feilds too . e) North Korea takes South Korea ; withdrawal by U.S. AND with/without China , threatens Japan with nukes ! f) Biowarfare here by China/Ben Laden/Russian/etc. terriorists AND at least one U.S. city nuked with suitcase bomb . g) WWIII by 2001 ! h) ALL OF THE ABOVE !!!

Not saying your leaving too soon ; I am saying , like McArthur , we shall return . We are in the eye of the hurricane , NOT on the edge . Eagle

Curious tho' that most (but not all) of the above list has been suggested not by "doomers/death wishers" but by the good old US Govt!!! Makes you wonder where some of the local pollys get their scripts written.

Get a life loser. Your clueless obsession implies a maladjusted state of mental health.

Poop, it's past time for you to go see a Doctor.

Did I miss the Pro's final attempt at a goodbye? Thanks for keeping the air clean sysops...Pro, You amaze me on how loquacious you become when it suits you. Hopefully you grow up some day before you infect you children with your bigotry and hateful demeaner...

-- Billy Boy (, February 14, 2000.

May the Force be with you! Best of luck in your "beyond Y2K" life.

(And check in now and then, while you lurk).

Best of luck to you. Glad things turned out to be a slow burn or a BITR. Sorry we can't get good enough information to tell which. But, when you can't beleive the word of the President of the United States...

Anyway, thanks for serving, thanks for posting, hope you get your pay straightened out, and keep on keeping on.

Oh, and for the rest of you, this is MY line! ;-)

Watch six and keep your...

Keep up the Airborne spirit, Billy Boy. STAND IN THE DOOR!

Billy Boy:

It's been good to share thoughts and encouragement through the past months...

Having been in "lurk mode" myself for some time now I'm finding great pleasure in seeing old friends post from time to time.

Take a rest--put your head down--and then come back once in awhile if you please!
