    Default The state of the links

    With things looking uncertain about the future of the site, I just wanted to let anyone out there who wanted to exchange e-mails to pm me and I would be happy to do so. Also, if anyone has Van Squalen's e-mail, could you please pm me so I could talk to you further about it. If there is another site out there that you are posting at, mention it as well if you like. There have been a lot of cool people on here I've met over the years and I would enjoy being able to continue communicating with you guys.

    I really would hate to loose this place. I have made some cool friendships in the 9 years I have been here.

    On my way home tonight I kept thinking of stuff I would like to post about and then realized I may never get to do that again, I was truely bummed.

    Okay, let me first say I'm totally clueless here. Leo Van Newhouse mentioned something about the advertising thread, that I had never seen, and I'm not sure if I want to look that up now.

    I have a few of you guys on msn and myspace, got emails of some others. I don't think I could express how gutted I'd be if this place gets shut down. It's a 5-years chapter of my life that I can't imagine being closed.

    Before I made it to work today I talked to Lodewijk and sixstring about the 'Links.'

    I don't talk to my customers before I get to the office.

    The stock market had nothing on me compared to this place being closed today.

    I think Brett just FINALLY decided to ban Olo and he put some voodoo super mod shit out there that made a little hiccup that smarty pants Brett couldn't fix. Goo (the real smart one, as you can certainly gather by the name) had to put some thought towards it to get it fixed. It was actually fixed ten minutes, but with that time warp thing being in Australia and all, y'know, we ended up having to wait a day. Thanks a lot Goo. Next time, please just simply fix it yesterday. Fool! Damn.

    well if anyones interested my e-mail/msn is TOMMYWHO@sky.com i'd hate to think that i wouldnt be able to chat to some of you guys if this place ever did close down. not only are you guys some of the funniest people ive ever had the pleasure of knowing in cyber space but also the guitar room has been a constant source of help and inspiration.
    i really hope things get sorted out (whatever they are) and the links can stay open....pehaps we could knock up a few more guitar room jams and sell them on napster and put all proceeds towards the cost of running the site, if that would help.

    This site cannot shut down. Not until OLO catches 'coons no. 3 and 4.

    His is an epic adventure in the making and its conclusion must be heard.

    Ditto. Class of '99, one more year and it'll be time to celebrate a decade at this joint.

    With the economy crashing down and VH again in a coma, we NEED this place and if we pull together I'm sure we can overcome any problems. That's what happened back in 02, and that's hopefully what'll happen this time.

    This is home, the only one I know.

    Default What the...

    I came "home" today, only to find my key didn't work. There was a sheriff's deputy waiting there with a piece of paper. It was a temporary restraining order. I had no idea what I had done to deserve this. I was flabbergasted.

    After a few hours, my significant other, beckoned me spiritually and asked me to return "home."

    Now, I'm going to hide the god-damned keys and hold her hostage.

    This is such a relief to be able to get back on the board. I have thought about the site and its members off and on all day. It would suck to not be able to read and see pics of KT's baby Taylor, know about the upcoming TLW party, see who is giving each other a hard time in the NCAA football thread, read about the latest wack job in Non, to not know if OLO caught anymore raccoons, to not read updates on Seen's Alpacas etc, etc. The list in my mind went on and on.

    I am a bit lost without checking in here. Whatever you decide to do Brett, at least give us a warning so that perhaps we can exchange emails with the people we have grown close too over the years. I know it's gotten to be a huge headache both financially and now with the ads. I just want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for having the place open in the first place. It is a great getaway from the real world and I think I would be more than a little sad without it.

    I too was pretty bummed when I couldn't get here & thought about not being able to catch up on 'coons, 'pacas, idiots in Florida, dumb jokes, funny pics, the list is endless. On the flip side, I probly got a lot more work done.

    I'll mirror several other posts in that I'd like to swap e-mail addy's & stay in touch should the unthinkable happen & the Links not be here. Regardless of anyhing else though, this is a kick-ass site & big thanks to Brett for keeping it up as long as he has!

    I have set up a temporary forum on MSN should things go awry here again. Not trying to compete with Brett, just trying to make sure we all stay together. Essentially, all you need to do is sign up for a hotmail account (or use one you already have) to join.

    Wow, that was weird. I never really gave much thought as to what kind of a role this site had in my life, if any. But when I couldn't log on and Brett's little note about an uncertain future had me thinking "is this it? I wasn't prepared. Wait, I need more time. I need some sort of closure. Where is everyone going next? Can I come too? I need to tell everyone I love them and to be safe."

    Seriously, though, of course this site won't last forever, but, either way, it's fun, full of great people and somewhat therapeutic.

    Brett, if/when you do shut down, can ya just give us a little warning like a set date or something? I need to be let down easy.
