btw, looking at your avatar, wasn't there a user named Wrongway Janeway? Or was that on another Trek board?
Yes. WWJW hasn't posted in a long while, but her husband is still around.

Re: Any old timers still around?

Geez, we must change that! I'll have 2 1/2 weeks off, starting with dec 13th. Prepare for a spam attack (i.e. 10 posts a day)

*checks old bookmarks*There used to be so many boards back then. I particularly miss Batboy's "Spacebar". I loved that place.
And there was "the land of Hoshi and Further", but it died before I even had a chance to register. Are Hoshi and Further still around? I didn't have much interaction with her, but Further was a Flaptain with me here and a bridge troll at TK.

And there used to be "motiveighT" by Shattered Harmonies. What became of him? I haven't seen him in years!

Btw, Bas' and Calli's SDG is still there. When Bas' boss wouldn't host it on his server anymore and Bas and Calli were bored by runnning a board, I rented some serverspace and have been hosting the board ever since. Precisely a decade, next week Since it's the third incarnation of SDG it's called SDG3 now and is members only, like a lounge here (to keep the spam bots out). There has been only 1 post this year, too (seems to be a trend ) but it's waiting to be resurrected one day. Maybe when we're all pensioned off and have more time for spamming again

Does anyone know what became of Robert Loggia? I had completely forgotten about him until the word loggia turned up in a crosswordpuzzle yesterday.
Last time I remember seeing him was at LoNAF, but that was a very long time ago.
Mal still lurks at LoNAF. He and his wife are expecting their first, now.

Re: Any old timers still around?

Really? wow! Somehow I can't imagine him as a dad. Nor as a husband, even. A decade ago I got the impression that he was a bit too infatuated with himself. It's amazing how people change when they fall in love

What was/were Brohi (sp?) called before they made a joint account??
Blade Runner and Johi. I don't remember a joint account, though.
I also don't remember - or see in the member list - a joint account.

Perhaps they got deleted? Shared accounts are not allowed here, according to the FAQs

^ They didn't have one, it was just a pejorative nickname some people gave them.

Jethro flamed me in a very un-priestly way, hence he's not exactly on my nicest poster list.
Barcode cyber-mobbed an ex-BF of me.

Speaking of ancient times: what happened to Lizardlaugh? I always loved that name and she was always friendly to me. I couldn't say anything negative about her and was quite surprised when I was told she got banned.
Ah, Barcode. Her and I got up to mischief long ago. I can't remember the details. We took the goings on of the BBS way too seriously back then.

And LL got banned? That I missed. Now she was smokin' hot.

If she was, it must have been temporary. She would post sporadically but it has been years.

I can't believe Robert Loggia is going to be a father. He was a nutcase.

Re: Any old timers still around?

LOL great minds, Bonzie I just tried to put it more politely. He must have been the person after whom they modelled the vain elf (Faban) with the mirror in the Barbie Fairytopia Magic of the Rainbow movie LOL

I only know what I was told about LL. She had vanished one day and the TKers said she had been banned for her connections to TK. There was no official announcement here, but at that time that was quite regularly the case, so nobody really wondered or dared to ask. I hadn't noticed she was back, but then I didn't so much as lurk here in 8 years myself. I did notice, however, that Barcode was back after a year or two and that quite surprised me as she had been officially and publicly permabanned for leaking several BR threads. That was a few weeks before RobL was made a staff member - not exactly a brilliant move as by then he was known as TK's dauphin - and promptly leaked the complete BR. Much to my amusement, I have to admit. It's such a good feeling to be able to say "there! I did tell you so, didn't I?"

Those were rather lively times. Interesting, though, as it became clear who was a real friend and who wasn't.
