Re: Any old timers still around?

Yep, Santy told me afterwards. Had I known it earlier, I'd have rented a car and joined the meeting. It's just a 10 hour drive and my Dutch is good enough to rent a hotel room . It'd have been fun to meet Santy and SpaceBall again.

Any chance of you and Mr'Bonz ever coming to Bavaria? I could show you around a bit. There are many lovely places the ordinary tourist doesn't get to.

Rincewiend, do you by any chance post at StarTrek.nl as well? I lurk there mostly, because my Durch isn't that good yet, but occasionally I make a post there.
Nope.
That one might post as Rincewind though...

I to celebrate my 12th year on the boards next year as well (In March, I think). But I can't really remember what was going on board wise in 2001.

Re: Any old timers still around?

being male, you naturally do. We have a saying here: if you put all men in a sack and hit it at random, you'll never hit the wrong one.

Thanks for trying to help me with that Belgian bloke. I'm fairly sure it was none of these. (btw, I remember Phtaloblue moon, is he still around? - somehow I always thought that was a female poster)
I'll have a look on my old backups, perhaps I can find an ancient chat log or a contact list.

Remind me never to let you convince me to step into any sacks, or at the very least, remind me to wear a helmet!

Lol, Bastian and Calli, sworn enemies of the EFCL

It's weird how even after all these years the same people are still posting here.

It's like coming home after a loooooooong holiday.

Re: Any old timers still around?

Bas and calli were both members of EFCL. At that time they had their own board, though: Muked-SDG. It was hosted by Bas' boss. After 1 or 2 years he needed the serverspace and Bas and calli decided to let the board die. As it was a friendly and funny board, we members decided to not give up that easily and so I rented a server segment, registered a domain and 10 years later (exactly 10 years, today ! =) ) SDG is still there (though inactive).
I've never again heard from bas and calli, though. Is anyone in contact with them?

Naah, Addie is a nice guy (and Dutch, not Belgian. Admittedly a difficult difference, given the size - or lack of - of both countries *ducks and hides from Santaman and C* )

Did he join the Air Force? If that's who it is, I can't think of his name either.

If not, then never mind.

Re: Any old timers still around?

I'm not sure. It's been some 8 or 9 years since we last talked. I remember that our opinions on war and politics differed extremely (he's a Belgian neo-Nazi. I am German and was born and raised in the flower power era). Also, at that time some pervert on TK posted a sickening picture of a person being run over and spread all over the road by a tank. That Belgian bloke found the photo funny! IMO definitely not normal, mentally. I broke off every contact with him.
LOL it's funny how much I remember of him and still can't recall his name. It doesn't really matter, though. He's not exactly on my top 10.


I found some old chat logs from 2002-2004 but discovered that I had kept only those of friendly people. I am not sure if all of them were on TrekBBS. It's possible that some names from other boards (particularly from SlipstreamBBS) might have slipped in. In addition to the previous lists I found:

Cpt Dumbass
Felonius Monk
Borgs 8472 (possibly from German TrekBBS)
Dr Phil (identical with King Phil?)
Geckoboy
Lexicdark (possibly from SlipstreamBBS)
Oxymoron
Phoenician Knight
Soundzen


But since you mentioned the Air Force, Brother: There used to be a young poster named Worf and some number (4 digits I believe). He wanted to join the army or air force and go to war. I told him that this was something to be well considered as he might very easily get killed. I urged him to think of his poor parents and rather take up some less dangerous occupation. Being young, he wouldn't listen to my concerns, flamed me and I've never seen him again. Did he manage to get himself killed? (Hopefully not!)

Because she is. Turned up again briefly within the last year or so, but that's all I know.

Re: Any old timers still around?

pheew, that's a relief. For a moment I was doubting my mental capacities (I'm getting old and had a lot of stress the last 12 months. Plus I've been working for the government for 20 years. It's a miracle that I am still sane enough to post )
