YES! Me! I am addicted to.
I've even had dreams about H2G2 - so if that's not addiction, what is?

I dreamed about being in a forum. But all the ACEs names were coming up in Bold Italic like tdv employees...

Was that including us soon-to-be's too?
I hope that Yahoo sorts itself out before they send out the info regarding who is what!

I think you'd posted to the forum... I'm not sure. Why not set [email protected] to forward to simeon for a bit, then send the messages back when it sorts itself out?

Having seen what happens from the 'other side' as it were, the vagaries of the internet aren't that much of a problem.
The fact that this whole shebang works at all is amazing smiley - bigeyes

So what may have happened to the missing mail? It tried to go from yahoo to altavista to Durham... which is likely to have been the weak link?

Off hand I don't know. I'd have to see the (full) headers for the mails to see what was going where exactly, and any error message output that anyone got, but hey that's part of my job and I'm now at home. Only I've got a pager that could go off at any time and I've got to deal with it smiley - sadface.

I wasn't that woried smiley - winkeye

I've just spent ten minutes getting somethign to restart.
It shouldn't work like that smiley - sadface I follow the instructions I'm given on the pager and it doesn't work. Why the **** doesn't it do what it's supposed to do (and it's just gone off again as the paging system catches up with itself).

Arrggghhhh, why is the whole darn thing so broken. Another page (yes that two seperate ones whilst I type this - I should type faster I know smiley - smiley) this time I can't do anything about it. Everyone knows that nothing can be done about it but still I (or anyone else who's on call) get told, arrrggggghhhhh.

thanks, just had to get it off my chest.

He probably did. He likes looking around, but very, very, very rarely posts anything.
I haven't seen him do it - only afterwards do I learn where he's been.
People tend to flock to his conversations too much... smiley - winkeye

Raising the point: if he *did* post *more* and people got used to it, would this no longer be a problem?

Maybe not - although more people would try and have conversations with him.
Also, if he *did* post more - would he have enough time to write books & do other things? smiley - smiley
