Going away or coming back?

DarthDimiDarthDimi Behind you!

Please let us know if you're out for a while or coming back from a short absence. As this thread will only be used to list up sufficiently relevant absences, I must urge everyone to consider the following two rules:

1) Only absences of 4 days or more should make the list. Shorter absences are too common and will render the list impractical.

2) No replies or comments to going away or coming back alerts should be made in this thread. They reduce the efficiency of the list.

3) Fond memories, travel stories and pictures are most welcome on our forum, but please use this thread instead. Again, the reason for this being to keep the list below clear and easy to use.

    Have fun! I haven't been there since I was 9--and that was 1990. The old Epcot Center was great with Horizons, I'd be curious to see what the place is like now.

    and so we see that there is no point in trying to dictate how people should use a thread, they'll either use it in the way that gives them what they need from it, or not use it at all...

    I think that this was simply an attempt at limiting spam as this thread had become a ridiculous spamfest at the old place.

    Off for two weeks to shoot two tv ads. One in sunny Birmingham and One in London. I will upload some shots of the ads in the making when I'm back.

    Hello one and all- not sure if any of you have noticed but I've been away for what feels like a couple of months, most likely meaning I've been away for a couple of months. I think that's the first time I've actually done that since I joined MI6, way back in 1974.

    This has largely been down to having a rather bad couple of months in some respects, but rather excellent in others. On the one hand It looks like I'll be starting a new job soon, on the other hand I had a breif medical scare, which fortunately turned out to be nothing. I bought a Fiat Punto, which is a wonderful car but it's currently at the mechanics because it's a Fiat and has broken in the few weeks I've owned it. I had a brief relationship with a wonderful woman, but then she left me for someone else. Called Eleanor. Swings and roundabouts as they say.

    What I'm trying to get at is, it looks like I'll be back in a slightly more active capacity for a bit. Here's hoping everyone else is doing well and no one is on fire or anything else equally odious.

    Nice to see you pop-in Mummy. Always nice to see familiar faces who actually want to talk about Bond. And with a nice avatar!

    Ditto

    Nice to see you Rummy. Hope this is a more permanent visit from you. We've lost some interesting and valued members along the way, nice to see a few of the members who can discuss Bond.
    Sounds like you've had an up and down few months.
  • Posts: 4,042
    Yup, welcome back Rummy. Just in time for the impact Bond 23 will no doubt make in the next few months.
  • Thanks for the welcome back, gents. I'd certainly missed your good company. Like I said, it was a pretty interesting couple of months, but if you can come through it all still laughing and no worse off then you were before, then what can you say? :)

    We missed you, Rummy. It's darn good to have you back among us. Now where's that box of chocolates you promised us when you left?

    Huh? B-)

    Great to see you around these parts again, Rummster. All fit and well now, I hope?

    And, yup, life's about living - meaning taking the rough with the smooth and all that. Hard luck on the amorous front, but no worries; I know deep down you're holding out for Caroline the lovely barmaid anyway. ;)

    Anyhoo, if ever you want a chat or anything, you know where I am, matey... :)

    hello all..

    it's been a really busy and rough few weeks for me... school, work, and personal - all together meant that i had absolutely no time to check in on the boards... since school is slowly starting to wrap up for the quarter - my personal life starting to settle back down, and starting a new job, I should (hopefully) be back on periodically/regularly - maybe not as often as i once was.. but i may pop in a few times a week, instead of daily... but we'll see..... playing everything by ear at the moment..

    Hi @haserot, it's nice to hear from you again. Hopefully all is now well and you're in a better position to rejoin us soon. No need to worry, I've got @St_George on hand to cut the welcome back cake! :-))

    You have to stick around to some degree @haserot, and be remembered as one of The Community's original big players. ;-)
