    My computer took a really annoying break from reality for what seemed like a loooooooooooooooong time but actually was about three weeks. It sucked.

    I was going to the library to check my emails, I discovered that if you only get to check your email twice a week or so, it adds up badly. I get about 200 junk emails a day. How much does everyone else get?

    So anyway, I'm back. What happened while I was gone?

    welcome back.... I know the feeling, I get about 250 emails a day :eyebrow: 5:1 junk to real ratio
  3. Welcome back :cool: I haven't been spending too much time around here lately, been way too busy.

    None. And I have Hotmail. :eyebrow: My theory as to why this is, is that my account name is a "word" that doesn't exist, and spam-bots can't guess it. A word that doesn't exist and isn't a concatenation of words that do. Such as "fawratizsquy", or whatever.

    I could be wrong, but it works for me. :hyper:

    Who are you? ;)

    Welcome back. And yes, I do get tons of e-spam every day. Is there any way to get rid of that crap? :spit:

    I think, anyway.

    Yes I missed you. Badbone, Buddman, Boogietiger.
    And even little Toto 2.

    I think I may have developed 'Oysterman' syndrome,
    prolonged absences with periods of wondering who all these
    people are when I come back.

    The road has been long, as some of my TB email buddies
    know, including illness, a family funeral, and so forth.

    But this is all behind me now, so I can resume excoriating
    foolish TB'ers with my rapier wit, correcting bad 'speeling' and generally being my regular, effusive, sarcastic self.

    Yes, I missed you. Almost all of you anyway.
    Even you, Munji. Believe it or not.
  10. Hey Thor! I knew I hadn't seen you in awhile and was wondering where you were. I am sad to hear about your reasons for not being here, but good to know you are back (maybe) and not dead :eek:
  11. huh , what ??? didnt hear you, i was listening to steely dan.
  12. Talking about spam, I use hotmail, and I rarely get any spam. Maybe the weird name thing? Though my filter is set fairly high.

    yeah dude, I noticed you were gone. It's good to have you back again.

    I average about five junk e-mails a day. They didn't start until I made a couple deals with some dudes from bassgear.com. Grrrrrrr! :mad:

  14. You were gone? :p

    Fhqwhgads. :D

    I missed your beard.

    The usual stuff has been going on, although there has been a rather higher number of relationship advice and psuedo trolls floating around here...

    Me too. It happens when one realises that TB is a BBS, nothing more, nothing less. Till next month.

    :confused: I'm not even going to ask.

    So that's what I'll be remembered by, eh? :eyebrow: Could be worse, I guess.
  19. I missed you, Bard! :bawl:

    This is why I never went into polititics - too emotional. :p

    It's good to have you back, man. ;)

  20. Welcome back lads, ye were missed.
