Where is everyone?

August 28th, 2019, 8:11 pm

I have not been on here for a couple of years.  Now that I have more time on my hands, I was hoping to discuss negative interest rates with T4A, get into an argument with zerdna on mid-east politics and discuss the fall of western civilization with farmer.  

Where is everyone?

Hello G3 - nice to see you.

Yes, things have changed since you were last here. Also AWOL - outrun, pauper, and daveangel (until recently - he showed up briefly a few weeks ago), among others.

Farmer reported that he had built a hog hunting robot and provided a video here : viewtopic.php?f=15&t=101615&p=837779#p837779

That was late last year. He also mentioned working for the DoD.

A good laugh at that!

If you search a bit, you can find the last posts from the others so you get a sense of the timeline.

Does a Phoenix rise from the Ashes?

TBD.

who's T4A?

gardener, AFAIK you did boxing?

Now the forum - was divided into four zones, you know, each occupied by a poster: the American, the British, the Russian and the French. 

Nowadays it's {pro|against} {Trump|BREXIT}

Actually, while the Brexit discussions are rather balanced, we're currently low on pro-Trump voices. Which is not a bad thing, mind you.

ppauper is gone? wow, I thought that guy would keep trolling forever.  I'll stick around for a bit.  The discussions seemd to have gotten very mild.  You all sound so fucking civil now.  What's the matter with you all :)

Traden4alpha, I guess he is gone too.  Yes I did boxing long time ago.  Funnily enough, I got a coach to help me out recently.  He was not impressed with my technique or my reflexes.  Getting old sucks
