A Fond Farewell & Thanks

My premature and precipitated exclusion from Jazz’s Exciles message board prevented me from saying my goodbyes.

I take the opportunity to send a message out to cyberspace in the hope it will reach those who have been my friends and acquaintances on the board.

To Welsh Gardener. It was always a joy to read your posts on the BBC and the present board; and a pleasure to exchange messages and banter. The flowers are for you. I hope the sun will shine on you in West Wales, so that your garden and life will flourish.

To the posters on the Technical/Computer board. Skull & Ian Mac, thanks for all of your advice. Reading your postings was both educational and entertaining. You increased my knowledge of computers tenfold. There were the odd disagreements on the forum, but this made the board even more gripping to read. I will never forget the Sunday morning when Windows XP decided to self-destruct, your advice and guidance brought me back from panic. To all the posters, may your life be free of: spam, viruses and spy ware.

Underdome, thanks for your PM, hope your music career flourishes. Every cloud has a silver lining, being excluded from the board will give me more time to meditate.

To the posters on the Sports board, especially those who posted on the 2007 RBS Six Nations Rugby Championship thread, your postings and humour made the life of this Wale’s supporter just about tolerable. I was looking forward to a World Cup Thread but now that is not to be.

Ponty Cyclops, Ant, I’m sorry I was prevented from responding to your Wale’s Rugby shirt joke, it cheered me up no end. I’m now going to devote my time to advising GJ so that Wales will get back on track.

Finally best wishes to all the past present and future members of Jezza’s Exiles message board. My only advice don’t criticise the Allotment/Gardening board it’s sacrosanct.

If a member of Jezza’s Exiles Message Board happens upon this blog, I would appreciate it if you would send a PM to those mentioned above, conveying my best wishes.

Thanks Meadow

Very much appreciated.

I notice the link I had in my board signature to this blog has been removed - how petty?

The link is still in your profile. Ian Mac and Skull send their best, and Skull says you're welcome on his boards!!!!!

YesBut,

Maybe we should start up a self help group called 'Jezza's Exiles' Exiles'?

;)

Good luck dude. I'm on the Five Live board sometimes. It's not so bad!

Yes But said...

Me too YesBut:

'I was a messageboarder for 4 years and all I got was this lousy T-shirt'.

I haven't been on 5 Live today, but I'm sure I'll see you when I am :). There are coloured people on there you know! There are even some bona fide muslims.

There are so many boards on 5 Live. Which do you post on?

Yes But said...

Hi Welsh Gardener

Thanks for leaving your message on the note pad.

Even though I will not be able to post,I'll visit the old board to read your posting.

Best wishes

Yes Welsh Gardener the Site Manager has accused me of multiple log-ins. Unfortunately she did not believe me when I denied the accusation.
Not very pleasant being called a liar.

Sorry YesBut, I should have said the News MB.

See you on the other side!

Oh, WeeGee, do you know you can't access that link without logging in?

Yes But said...

Welsh Gardner

I cannot log onto the board.
There is no appeal procedure.
I explained, by email, to the site manager that I am not the sole user of this computer.
When someone used this computer to logon as Rebecca I cannot be held responsible for that. But my explanation was rejected.
As far as I can see, the doors have been slammed in my face, to remain permanently closed.

Best wishes

Squeam <- Is this the new you ? Very brief ? I'm afriad you'll have to remain as Squeamy to me.

I've tried a couple of times, but am finding the premod making me not bother.

Maybe YesBut could add a forum here for all of you EEs.

That's 'Miss Squeamy' to you DowellD!

Yes But said...

Hi Miss Squeamy,DowellD,Ladies & Gentlemen

Unfortunately, as far as I know, there is no means available to set up a forum on the blog page itself.

However please feel free to use the comment facility to exchange views, news and if things really get bad insults

Oooooo 'Miss Squeamy'..... I hope your not trying to get me in trouble again with your wild ways ;)

Then again... :D

Me? Me? Well really.

I wonder how much effort it takes to set up an Eamped type messageboard?

I'm investigating how to set up a forum in the main section of the blog

I take it you have the ability to edit the comments here ? If so could you delete the email address I posted please, before the bots come along and read it.

Thanks

Hi Dowelld

As far as I can see there is no method available for editing posted comments.

All I could do was to remove the comment completely which I have done.

What power, one click and message disappears - no wonder moderators have a sense of power.

Don’t like this - click - and its deposited in the big recycle bin in cyberspace.

I have now added a Guestbook where you can start discussions.

Anonymous said...

Alls well that ends well IMHO :-)

There is a reason for everything it may not be apparent at the time, ie other users using computers etc with the identical login of the site admin of the owner of Jezzas Exiles.

It all happens for a reason.

So I wish you all well and happy posting.

After over 4 years www.jezzasexiles.com is going strong - still free and still there!
Not many of the old crew come by - but I do miss most of those from that period!

Thanks for the compliment and that makes me happy!

Best Regards (Skull) Steve - Webmaster at Jezzasexiles.com
