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.

As I said above, there has been a server problem.

Waiting to see how things work out wrt that.

Thanks Carol. Funny how you really miss a place when you can't get there. Glad to know it's being resolved though.

Former FormerLurker, maybe?

Anyway, I miss AN.

Geez, I head out for a few hours and I miss the party!

FFL originally stood for Formerly FormerLurker, as it didn't make much sense to be a FormerLurker on a brand new site.

Also Fishhead For Life, as well as From FL.

Thanks for the PM's, Carol - you have replies now if you haven't read them yet.

I should head over there but I'm on vacation myself and will have to hold off for now. I'll see about stopping in later tonight though.

I thought FFL was for Fishhead For Life. Since I haven't been a very active member here I never knew.

I had a few posts from the last time AN went down but they have all disappeared for some reason. Searching for AppleNova only brought up a few threads and none of them are from the last time AN went down.

Either way, now I'm becoming a little more active here though I do so hate getting pop-ups and pop-unders.

Not in VA?
I'll be in Virginia Beach after Christmas and me and my Mom will be heading up to Williamsburg where my sister and family lives for First Night in Williamsburg.

Not looking forward to the cold!

Yeah, FFL stands for, I think, "Formerly Former Lurker". The others are self-explanatory.

Yep, I left Va Beach last night and am now in Charleston SC. Seems like the weather is supposed to be about 72DegF tomorrow! I'll be back to the Beach middle of next week. I can't say I'll miss the cold while I'm down here either.

Williamsburg is very cool and you should have a blast. How long will you be in the area?

Well, I sure do hope that the current crop of active AI users aren't too ticked by us old-timers dropping in like this... so unexpected, and during the holidays at that! Thanks you guys. We should make you a cake or something when we get our house back... right now it feels like we've moved back into the old family home or something... I couldn't resist popping into PO just to see how nasty some of the exchanges were... good times!!

It is rather funny and even more so when you read the first page or so of this thread.

Still just a 404 for me, I guess my ISP's DNS hasn't caught up yet. Hopefully it can get straightened out soon.

Ah I see that now if I go to applenova.com. It's my bookmark to forums.applenova.com that is still just a 404.

You don't even know!! All these whippersnappers running around here are really driving that point home!

We're like an ark-ship that went zooshing off into the great beyond to settle new worlds... on our "planet" we have a custom of making BEER a choice on most every poll, in order to allow people to avoid selecting a controversial opinion, thus avoiding long-standing rivalries. It usually works out nicely, and we (for the most part) remain so laid back that we don't have time to fuss and grumble.

But for me, the unpleasantries of the breakaway weren't directly related to me, so AI is still the "home team", just not where I play now. I'd sure hope that the AI crowd would come shack up with us if this old house has any hiccups.

Do you even realize why we don't have that option on polls here?

Yes, we have beer, motorcycles and hard drive reformatting lessons from time to time.

Hey....
What's with all the pop-behinds.... are these coming from AI? Is that something new? ::sigh::

I've activated the extra-special pop-behind machine. It's only serving them to people who haven't visited here in some time.

Or something like that.

I just want to say that, given my history with terrorist attacks, I have not been near AN for quite some time.

Or have I....

I still think Hassan chained his bike to it.

You expressed exactly my feelings. I didn't have the time to visit two forums on a regular basis, so I chose the option with more beer and astrology/pizza ...

It's kinda awkward over here...not bad, but...awkward. I wasn't exactly over at AI in the first place, so that makes it all the weirder. Anyways, so this whole thing is a DNS issue? *sigh*

BTW, Moogs, check your PM.
