    Ahoi all...

    Post  KapitanPrien on Tue Jan 26, 2010 2:07 pm

    Well I have to thank Gypsy_Girl for sending me the email regarding what's up on SF - which is how I came here. I was devistated when SF went down - as I was there for nearly a year and felt that my social life just got shot... :rage:

    About me: I will be turning physically 30 this year. I had a soul exchange in my early-mid 20s and I never knew such a thing existed so it was a big thing for me to try to learn and understand it all.

    I had only lived once before and I do not conform to the stereotype of those who have undergone this experience.

    I had served in the Handelsmarine/German Merchant Marine during the 1920s and early 30s, and then had joined the German Navy in 1933. I had served some time on the surface fleet and then transferred to the U-Boat arm in 1935. I fought in WWII and died in 1941 from causes yet unknown.

    My hobbies include: tea (I drink only herbal teas and rooibos, but I love to go to tea tastings), Art Nouveau, Art Deco, I do vintage/retro living 1930s -40s and attend WWII events. I do have antiques - as that's pretty much a part of retro/vintage living, and I love antique shopping. I'm also into natural healing and living - but am an omnivore.

    I do not work as I have CFS with muscle fatigue so I try to enjoy my life the best way I can through my hobbies.

    :peace:

    Hi Kapitan, from what I can gather it just went off, no warnings, no time to inform anyone, extremely rude of them imo.

    I hope you enjoy this place, hopefully SF will be up and running again sometime soon.

    Hello Violet,

    Yep that's what the email said - no warning or anything. This is the first time it's ever happened in all the times I've been there.

    Question - how do I put in an avatar here? I was trying to figure this out but can't find the spot...

    Thanks :)

    The weird thing was that it just stopped. I was browsing the forum at that time, and then it just disappeared. No warning, no nothing.

    I would have been in the land of nod at that time, I didn't know anything until I came in here yesterday.

    Hello Innerlight,

    I signed off around sometime just after 10pm - and I didn't know anything till the next day when I tried to get on and got the 404 message, and then tried the main link to the site and got the Parallels Plesk site page...

    What about Facebook? - for trying to get ahold of others...

    I reopened my account to see if there was anyone there - but most were gone - so I just closed it again.

    Just a thought.

    Hiya - glad to see ya! And very glad that gypsy girl got ahold of you. I sent a message to a few people on Facebook and I think the only active staff member who isn't aware is KosT.
    Anyone else get the weird feeling that we're camping?

    Hello Kaere and Earth Mamma.

    I don't know about camping...I feel like I'm in some FEMA trailer.

    If SF ever gets back together - can we have a list/post/thread where members can add their emails in case something like this big wahoo happens again?

    *Waves* to Kapitan!

    Oh good I wasn't crazy when I kept getting the host server page instead of the forum.

    I wish, now I had the emails to others I spoke to on a regular basis! The things we learn.

    Oooohhh a camping trip! I like the singing around the campfire, but don't ask me to sing! :D

    Around nassau town we did roam
    Drinking all night
    Got into a fight
    Well I feel so broke up
    I want to go home

    So hoist up the john bs sail
    See how the mainsail sets
    Call for the captain ashore
    Let me go home, let me go home
    I wanna go home, yeah yeah
    Well I feel so broke up
    I wanna go home

    The first mate he got drunk
    And broke in the capns trunk
    The constable had to come and take him away
    Sheriff john stone
    Why don't you leave me alone, yeah yeah
    Well I feel so broke up I wanna go home

    So hoist up the john bs sail
    See how the mainsail sets
    Call for the captain ashore
    Let me go home, let me go home
    I wanna go home, let me go home
    Why don't you let me go home
    (hoist up the john bs sail)
    Hoist up the john b
    I feel so broke up I wanna go home
    Let me go home

    The poor cook he caught the fits
    And threw away all my grits
    And then he took and he ate up all of my corn
    Let me go home
    Why don't they let me go home
    This is the worst trip Ive ever been on

    So hoist up the john bs sail
    See how the mainsail sets
    Call for the captain ashore
    Let me go home, let me go home
    I wanna go home, let me go home
    Why don't you let me go home

    Yeah - something of this extent definitely calls for a back up plan to be put into effect...

    I don't know if anyone can come up with a good way to do it (as someone needs to keep the addresses personally and not leave them on the site) - but there is the idea anyway.

    ...I just hope I don't have to pay rent on it. I'm already paying on my own apt.



    ...well, I just couldn't resist the joke. I'm like that...what can I say. It's the only thing that's helped me survive and go through what I go through... :awed:
