You know, it was only the move away from the BBC that turned this into a "proper religion"...

Up until then any pilgrim could make the trek to Nighthoover's user page, but as all "dormant" accounts were stripped out in the change-over we only have faith and the memories of "those who were there" to say that (s)he ever existed.

And, in a way, that sucks. smiley - candle

Nighthoover's user space was nuked from orbit before the move from the BBC.

The user content was long gone, true, but now any trace, even of the link to this very thread, has been erased. smiley - elvis

That was also gone before the move. Like I said, it was nuked from orbit with no links to either of the two posts nighthoover ever made.

I'm quite curious to know what the person responsible for nuking said space from orbit was thinking when they did so. I mean, there are your typical abandoned accounts and then there is this, the holiest of hoovers. And it's not like they freed up any server space when they did it. It couldn't have even taken as much as one measly kilobyte. It was literally just a link to this conversation. I don't remember anything being posted on hir personal space other than that... maybe an Ace message. Does any one remember anything else? It was as if Nighthoover created hir account just to ask how to cancel it.

It was probably not really noticed - just part of an automated process. Cleaning up all the seemingly unimportant little things from the site's various nooks and crannies. Almost like... well, almost like hoovering.

smiley - ok
Yay, verily it doth not follow like matter and anti-matter
that there needs be an equal balance of the hoover and
the anti-hoover.

Just as darkness is the absence of light and cold is the lack
of heat, the absence of hoovering is not to be measured in
the same terms as the act of hoovering.

Wisely spoken, brother. Truly, you are one of the wielders of the Sceptre of the Hoov. smiley - zensmiley - grovel

The Sceptre of the Hoov... cylindrical and clear. Symbol of bagless technology. The antithesis of the Orb of Dyson with its wicked turning radius.
