Bummed About Lost BN Threads

Post by Tiki Bar »

BN has been a cherished and prized online scrapbook of a decade of memories, both mine and my friends. I guess it was asking too much, but I thought that they'd be here forever... that the seams of the BN pocket had no bounds, a bottomless bank of bad habits.

I could easily search any assortment of keywords and dig up whatever it was I was looking for, unearthing treasures of good times past, and reminiscing in the memories of spirited conversations.

I am completely bummed to discover that the archives of this invaluable time capsule have been truncated.

I saw Penny mention that the "BNer's I've Met" thread was lost in the latest update, and I couldn't believe it. But I searched numerous ways, and I couldn't find it either.

Today, I wanted to wax nostalgic to the time I met our very dear Prthd119 / Conolulu... when Penny and Elrod got engaged... and look at the pictures and revisit the heartwarming and hilarious conversations from the Party at the End of The Pool in 2007, but the thread is gone. [smilie=cwl.gif] [smilie=cwl.gif]

I wonder what other threads have gone by the way side.

And are the missing threads "gone gone", or are they still out there somewhere, hopefully able to be dug up in the future?

. . oh, noooo . . :cry:

. . I always so enjoy when you send me links to past threads . . .

. . so many memories of days/nights spent here . .

. . " back in the day " when BN was the only game in town, there was always a party in here . .

. . many phriendships were formed . . and yes, our phriend Conolulu certainly touched many of us . . . .

. . sigh . . wish I could revisit those threads right now . .

. . :cry:

We were hoping to pull up the thread where Connie, Susan, Jason, Barry and Christine got to meet Jimmy at the Mville in Orlando...

We all had lunch at Margaritaville then Tom left to go play golf and I left to drive to Tallahassee for the Buffett concert the next day. I was about 30-45 minutes up the road and I got a call that JD was interviewing Buffett on Radio Margaritaville. I figured even if I turned around and went back, he'd probably be gone by time I got there so I kept driving.
what I really mean . . . I wish you were here

I was looking for a thread that I started last month, but it looks like one of the ones that is MIA.
Oh well, it wasn't important, but I wanted to add an update.
Guess PHJim couldn't keep them all.

That one, and Funky getting his Nautical Wheelers wish Set List, are some of my favorite BN things. 'Course, I'm just a noob.

Those should be in my "Still Naughty at 40 Birthday" thread. Let me see if I can find it.

Some of the pictures are in an album on my FB page. Not all, but some.

I looked, and couldn't find you're 40th Bday Soiree or the infamous Jumbie Kimmy wedding. :cry: :cry:

But I was happy to see this one's still out there... for now!

(However, I noticed that two threads that I linked to in the recap are now gone :( BG's birthday call from Miles, and me on the video loop at margaritaville. Damb it all to hell.)

Just noticed the photo gallery has also been changed and truncated, and I can no longer find any of the assorted photos I uploaded over the years. :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

And, I keep getting this error, which makes me laugh. "Reason: Exceeded the maximum number of page not found errors per minute for humans."

If I were a monkey or a dog, could I keep searching?
