idk. i took it as a dickish thing to say, atleast imo.

i just kinda get the feeling from some of these posts that theres still kind of a rift tween the forums. i thot that was buried long ago. both got their benefits. for my forum'ing, i mostly post there, with the exception of PO i go here. and since this was on my way, i jumped in here.

I just stumbled upon this thread because AN seems to be down at the moment. Anyway, I thought it was an interesting read. Nice to know what some who stuck around here think about those of us who migrated over there. And, for what it's worth, I was never in a frat (though I'm sadly a 30-something now... I wasn't at the time!).

Anyway, bumping this thread just because it's not locked. And I feel like it.

Yeah, I decided to take a look over here as well, with the 404 I'm getting over at AN. I guess no one has any answers yet. \

Yeah. I've been working to get on there for a while too. I was looking for the other thread when AN had it's last issue but I couldn't find it either. Seems to have disappeared from the forum completely.

Edit: Yep, they must have been deleted. My post count is only 1 and I've posted here when AN had issues last time. \

Hey. Listen guys...this is not a playground to frolic in while your other place is wherever.

Show some fucking respect.



Although ... to pass the time ... I've got my scrotum *almost* over my head.

I, too, have my scrotum almost over my head, so it gives me great pleasure to welcome our novite friends (and I post there from time-to-time) here while over there is 404'd and all gayed out.

The nameservers are super-borked over at AN right now (hey all you active members of AI, I'm one of your senior classmates... been awhile since I've posted here ::waves:.


I have a PDF of the DNS report for AppleNova right here:

Suckage.

Hassan, you didn't happen to chain your bike to AppleNova did you?

All I did was lean it against 'nova while I tried to steal someone's girlfriend. I got into a fight and the next I knew someone was making off with the whole forum.

I'm so sorry.

Drew, since it's a nameserver issue, would we be able to get access with the IP?
post #54 of 162
That's a possibility, but is there any way to get the IP with the nameservers all borked?

Hey, why don't we all forget about it and make up? And just pretend it never happened, and be friends again?

We can all live here, together.

Like a proper family.

The other place is prettier though. It'd be like moving back to an apartment that the landlord doesn't care about vs. a sparsely yet tastefully decorated house... that we've apparently lost the keys to.

I suggest we all just go outside and think about what nice things we can do for our fellow humans.

For example, I was just out walking the dog and I thought about helping an old lady chip ice off her sidewalk. That would've been nice for her! I'm going back outside to think of more.

It's easier to read too.

Not enough contrast with AI's forum design.

post #61 of 162
ha...i wonder what my post count is here...did it reset to zero?...

and yes i am a pre blackout AI human that hasn't been here in a while...hoping to find why another site is down...likely tied to the soon to be demise of thinksecret i assume...

and i lurk here from time to time, but usually don't post...seems to be alot of overlap aways...and many post at both sites...

but i admit i 99% stay at the other site mostly because two apple nerd sites is harder to keep track of than one apple nerd site...and i have my scooter nerd site to visit and my nintendo wii nerd site to visit...so that limits me some...only so much nerdiness to go around

though i miss powerdoc and wish he would visit AN from time to time

as for the 30 something frat remark, eh, i'll let it pass as i'm well past my 30's (sadly)...

as for re-combining the two sites back into one...not a horrid idea...but it's not horrid having them split either...

eh, whatever will be will be...

happy holidays...hug and hold tight you loved ones...

if admin A is visiting family in the jemez moutains, i could always swing by and take him a message if needed...

but im not sure who admin A is (vs admin b through e or f)...though i might guess that A stands for the first letter of the user name?

I doubt it has anything to do with the demise of thinksecret. The only thing that connects the two sites is a hyperlink. Different hosts and all. Seems like the dns is borked or something.

This is so odd. It's the same but different.

In the spirit of holiday season, you'll transfer those revenues to my account, right?

No?

How about Kiva?

Greetings all. Hassan, my brotha from anotha mutha... what it is?

Glad to hear it's just a DNS issue and not a server asplosion.

I think I'll have to smack you around for that comment, Moogs.

(also "just kidding" )

Apparently there has been a server problem.

Alas, not a very nice surprise to find in our Christmas stockings, is it?

Waiting to hear what develops.

Hassan, have you ever thought of pitching this idea to the Israeli-Palestinian negotiators?

I think you might have more luck with them.

I'll gladly add it to the Kiva.org account. Of course it has to get to $100 first and it is at... I think it was $.27. Yippee!

Speaking of Kiva, just had a loan finish up and lent the same money back out again. I have another loan at 92% and I'll lend that money back out again as well. People in the third world are more trustworthy than people in the U.S. I'd love to have the same repayment rate on my Prosper.com account.

Wow, I was expecting this to be fixed by now. I've made my trip and still nothing.

What's so funny is after seeing Hassan on here my first thought was wondering if he had a bike anywhere near here. Now I feel really late for the party on that one.

Carol, can I know something too? Please?

Is FormerLurker FFL? Most of the member I know are using the same name here and that makes it easier for me to know who each other is.
