    I remember hearing that people in NYC could remember and would talk about what they were doing and where they were during the "great blackout" of 2002, or '03 or whenever that was. I heard that some of you were forced to find other distractions during this recent Forum blackout.

    You all know what I was doing - what did you do?

    I read AA (there is often a lot of info there), snickered at MM and surfed the Cobblers site and others on my bookmark list. I did not go as far as catching up on the LL discussions. I'll save that for a really slow day....

    Well, I was working a lot, as usual.

    And, as you know J; I was playing Katamari Damacy on your couch until I became temporarily stuck on the 6 meter star, and thats about it.

    My life is an empty ####.

    ...now thats interesting.

    Evidently, we are not allowed to say the name of the place that is the opposite of heaven. I was just censored.

    Is this a permanent change J, or a temporary thing?

    That was a default that I couldn't quickly fix before putting the board back online. It's on my ####ing list... BTW, the star after the 6m star will blow your ####ing mind... [​IMG]

    Worked harder than usual--which was OK. Things had been piling up around here. Just don't do this to us again.

    Luckily I was keeping busy on stijlforum.nl , which is a board very similar to this. But Dutch.

    Maybe in nine months time, several members can report a new addition to their families. (Isn't that the very thing that happened after the New York blackout?)

    might I ask whats the cobblers site, sounds interesting but haven't seen it mentioned here before. Do you have any other interesting mens fashion sites, all i have is styleforum and AA and the online version of Clothes and the man. As for what i did, like many other i went to AA.
