    I lost part of my brain like Rascoe did. Be careful what you wish for. I remember lots of stuff but it is mostly the stuff I wish I could forget! At least I think so. I forgot.

    Well, we do have Fantasy Golf and Fantasy Tennis leagues wrapping up in the next week. Once I claim those two championships, I will bypass your win total.

    I likely would have missed it but for butt head (Laimbumbler) and guys like Woody, Linwood, and others. Oldies like Army girl(hope she's ok wherever she be), I don't know. People get busy or whatever!! Just because they've been AWOL doesn't mean they don't care.

    I did send out an email, and I will send another today, and probably one more next week.

    I am trying my best to keep people informed.

    maybe my last story:
    -
    2sd grade or was it 3rd ?
    we had an aquarium with several gold fish. The tank was mostly barren. I sat in the back close to it.
    Then the the teacher put an angel fish in.
    One by the angel fish ate the gold fish. We told the teacher but she didn't care.
    The angel fish would hide carcasses by the heater. He/it ate them all.
    This disturbed me for some time.
    I just remembered something else.
    Same teacher. She put a little Christmas tree in the back and told us to decorate it.
    I believe I missed a rare day of school and when I came back she looked at me then
    back at the tree. I looked back and it was just dripping with nothing but the silver
    icicles, so ugly and funny I had to hide my laugh.

    You're a good person.


    Funny. Sounds like they should be named "Dark angel" fish!

    Perhaps a moderator could move this to the goldfish thread.

    Stop spreading these stories. A lot of my power rests on a perception of my cruelty and ruthlessness that you helped me cultivate.

    With all the malarkey threads, it's rather amazing that we never started a goldfish thread. Maybe put it in the "Nemo Appreciation Thread". There must be one in the archives around here somewhere...Lemme see...Wiggles Appreciation Thread, Pocket Lint Appreciation Thread...nope. No nemo thread. :reading:

    Well, if " it" is gone it is better that you forgot. That way you don't know what you're missing.:deathstar1:

    Thank you for considering different options and for providing the long answer.

    What if someone created a new domain, and installed a new copy of Xenforo, then imported from this server?

    Or, there is a free forum (doesn't need a license ) called MyBB. That can import existing forums from other sources, such as Xenforo. It has an import tool. The person would still need the credentials to the current Pistons Forum database.

    Or, that person would need a dump file of the DB.

    That way, someone new could have a new domain and server account, but have this forum's history on the new site.

    I am not going to turn over everyone's data to "someone", and I am not going to spend 2 weeks reaching out to people for their individual approval, or cleaning out the DB by hand (because that would be the alternative).

    Imagine if you will for a minute if I had gotten into a fatal car accident last week (which is not crazy because this time of year we get a lot of tourists from Alberta and they can't drive worth a damn). There would be no heads up, things would be very chaotic, and the forum would probably still have to close, perhaps with zero notice.

    I appreciate very much that people have enjoyed this spot. Truly. It is time to say good-bye, collect email addresses and phone numbers from friends.
