it seems the new TT server was incorrectly setup in the first place and the forums had ran out of space to grow any bigger, thus our temporary outage whilst SileNceR and myself were able to rectify the problem...sorry, but there was a considerable loss of posts this time, atleast its mostly back up though... everything is backdated to decmber 22nd...

sorry for the inconvenience

Hopefully for a while this time it will stay up for a while. We are going to use a different backup method than before.

sKuLLsHoT
01-09-2002, 11:24 AM
darth, we do realise that fact, but that is exactly why i wait til then to do things, its better to upset people who are further away, the its less likely that they actually annoy you...

Grim Reaper
01-09-2002, 05:09 PM
LOL!! nice logic!

Kay
01-09-2002, 06:37 PM
Good thinking there, harder to punch someone in the nose if they have to travel a day to get here, bit hard to keep the momentumrage going then ;)

Wiggo's-sister
01-09-2002, 08:56 PM
the long arm of the law may reach you though :D

Mr. C

i actually know a guy who was manager for a certain ISP down here in warrnambool, who drove all the way to melbourne (2.5-3 hour trip), sped all the way, got fined once, and all because he was pissed off at a bloke he had been talking to on the phone, he told the bloke he would love to smack him out, he said "i'd like to see u try that"

so off he went, all the way, got their, walked into the office where the guy was, smashed his nose, and walked out...

and that is a true story

Kay
01-10-2002, 06:08 AM
The moral of that story is: don't mess with this guy, he can hold a grudge forever, wow!!!!!:eek:

Wiggo's-sister
01-11-2002, 05:32 PM
ooooooh, so that way we could add to the story line

Kay
01-11-2002, 05:34 PM

Wiggo's-sister

But Olie..... seafood is full of zinc, which helps you umm..... "perform" when "favours" are offered :D :cackle:

Beefy

And don't forget Albinus -- Zinc can also be used to prevent sunburn:D

Well I tried all the things you suggested, the aloe vera didn't work, the vinegar didn't work, the moisturiser didn't work.....

But some nice topical anaesthetic eventually got to it :thumb:

Was only itchy that night, peeling now, the less sunburnt areas are rather nicely brown :cantfocus

Wiggo's-sister
01-18-2002, 09:49 PM
do we get to see the tanned bits :?:

Kay
01-19-2002, 06:56 AM
Sorry to hear those remidies didn't work, but next time you get sunburnt, use the brown vinegar straight away, or cold tea is good for relief from the stinging :angel:

Wiggo
01-19-2002, 09:11 AM
Or just don't get burnt in the 1st place. :)
