PS: Has this thread about run its course? Is everyone ready to settle in and leave the old site behind?
First off, apologies for the comment you had to edit. I actually didn't think it crossed the line too far. I guess there are still some grey areas in people's heads (like mine) between the old Open Forum and the Bar & Grill. You're the boss though, so that's that eh.
As for this thread running its course.....
If there is one thing common to the crew from Central, it's that they LOVE to dig up the past every once in a blue moon and toss it around and have a laugh or a bitchfest about it. Very much like most families do at a reunion. Always highly entertaining. Even if you only get half of it. To be honest, it's one of the things that made Central what it was (emphasis on the was), there was a certain comradere there that went beyond what message boards generally boast. At the risk of seeming to slight anyone that has been here for a while, I will say that no other forum that I have viewed has come close to displaying the same. There is a unique repitoire of inside jokes that people from there shared, I will admit that it declined sharply and became the rarity towards the end, I was fortunate enough to be slightly more than a casual observer and participant for a few years, but I'm sure you've already seen what I'm talking about just by reading a few of the interactions between some of these guys (and gal.....yes LB this nod's to you). If everyone had the cash, I'm pretty sure they would have an annual retreat or something, complete with beer garden and Topper supervised BBQ (you know one in which he would be teaching Arach how to actually cook).
So to be honest, I'm not sure it's safe to say that this thread has run its course yet. Maybe the thread. Not the subject or topic. It'll get alluded to for a long while, more and more sporadically, but for a long while.
Judging by the conversations here, and the back-and-forth between Doc and a few others like ODB and Rats.....I'd say the settling in question get's "yes" for an answer.
Heh, I could teach you how to drink beer (and show your girlfriend my amp without my nutsack shrivelling up )
I had actually suggested to Chris we have a concert or jam (considering all the musicians on here) to raise funds for the site but he said no
