Hi Jules. I can finally log on! (Check your e-mail to find out what happened.)

Hello to everyone else as well. It's great to see so many familiar names at this site!

Congratulations, Jules, on getting this place up and running. I’m relieved to find a safe haven for those of us who are continually having problems with G.A.S! heh

Best,

Geoff

Hello to all!!

It's nice to be here.
I will be the one with the problems that are the most obvious to fix. I will also ask questions that to every other human being will seem ludicrous and annoying.

Thanks,

Hi, Jules! Looks like you're off to a great start with this site!

You missed a gearoovy gearslut 'site' in your links, but that's okay, AM4T is just an old backwater site under "alt." with not much traffic and I think most of us like it that way, but to show the gearslut seriousness of the group, the compilation set is named "Gear Addicts Anonymous."

Might as well say hello here as well- I also used to frequent homerec, but have since moved away from it to a large extent. I've been looking for a place that focused more on gearslut topics. Seems like this might be the place! Good to see such a collection of RAP and RO luminaries all coexisting peacefully, thus far...

Hope I can bring something constructive to the party, anyway, in exchange for learning something from those who are clearly *far* greater gearsluts than myowndadgumself. (;-)

After all (to paraphrase Briggs Cunningham), the best way to make a small fortune in the recording arts is to start with a large one. Right?

To be fair, the obituary may be premature. Perhaps more fair would be to say that there was radical surgery, and the patient is still in critical condition. Vital functions are low, and the prognosis is still iffy.

The participating members have dwindled to a trickle, many sections of the forum haven't had a new post in weeks. Can it be nursed back to health? Perhaps, but it will likely be without a lot of the former regulars, the sum of which gave it a lot of its previous identity and flavor. Even those who wish it well can do little if the activity level remains borderline comatose.

Just look at all the "former" RO moderators and major contributors who have jumped ship, or are at least moonlighting elsewhere. Sites like this one and homerec have obviously picked up the slack. Let's face it, the main attraction of any board is goiing to be the personalities and expertise of the moderators and the heavy hangers. In the past when RO had guys like Fletcher, Julian, Stephen Paul, Harvey Gerst, Kev, Knightfly, and others, it was clearly second to no other site on the web. If you wanted to know anything about anything, it was clearly the place to go.

Can it ever be that way again? There's still a bad taste floating around about some of the arbitrary and heavy-handed dealings that went on during the "changeover". The longer it takes to get back up to speed, the more time people have to get comfortable with some of the other alternatives, most of which are still free.

Chris made his decision, and it was his to make. I have no personal animosity towards him, and I wish him well in his endeavors. But that does not mean that I think he made the right decisions. My feeling is he made his choices out of financial desperation - he needed a quick fix. Unfortunately, this precluded carefully exploring some other alternatives that might have been short of "radical surgery". It looks like the best chance now is for the site to evolve into something completely different, offering some sort of collection of unique services that people would be willing to pay for. But in that sense, it is now just another dot.com company, and unfortunately, we've seen what has happened to most dot.com's in the last two years.

Tick tock...
Chris was WARNED that this would happen by many experienced in the BBS field, he put on his blinders and killed the board.
He is an ASS plain and simple, and now he is exhibiting sociopathic 'ostrich head in the sand' 'its all good' 'no one is going to kill my positive outlook' behavior.
He made the cardinal mistake in believeing it was all about him.
The guy is a tourist who got lucky with his BBS.
I do not wish him luck or success in the RO side of life.

Good to see you here littledog... you are another welcome fallen jewel from RO's tiarra.

Now we need stedel, Opus2000 and GT11.
Son of Smawg can go down with the ship, for his hand in the demise of RO.
