Chaps. There was a massive crash last saturday that wiped EVERYTHING out. KW has found some archive, and the first board might be accessible but apparaently everything else is nomore. Which is sort of shocking when you start thinking about it. Having said that I'd rather not dwell on what was lost but what has been gained by OMJ existing. There was a great archive of comment and knowledge and wit on a whole host of subjects (in amidst all the waffle) but I guess ultimately it's a forum for communication and a load of friendships, even romantic liasions, have grown out of it. I did wonder whether to bother setting it up again and was actrually feeling like an obsession ha dlifted when it wasn't there to refer to constantly. Then weirdly I woke up yesterday morning wondering how OBL69 and Odd Job's sunday football team were getting on, despite knowing only one of these two chaps and never having seen either of them play.So this is where we are. Re-invention. You all have to re-register. Feel free to post any suggestions on how we might rebuild but don't assume they'll automatically be implemented. I'm kind of thinking we'll stay like this on a temporary basis, as we work out how to protect ourselves from it happening again, and then move to a different server.

It seems so weird there being nothing on here to read.
What's with the capitals?That doesn't look right, is it really you?This 'quick post' thing is pretty cool though.
Oh, and how about a general 'football' section?
yes, i was being formal during the start up phase. i wonder if anyone was on when it crashed. imagine if you were 400 words into a really big post and it just went down! ha ha.
and btw anyone have anything they want to repost feel free. i know soldier and and ad both have copies of their gig and restaurant reviews.
KW, how do you put a picture up again?
I'll restructure the site into the old forums over this weekend
Yay we're back! (and so am I with a new username). I'll be mostly lurking though
Computers eh? Nowt but trouble. Sometimes i wish could go back to the old days. Nothing ever goes wrong with the good old-fashioned post office way of communicating...... Oh, hang on.....
Well, yesterdays history and tomorrows a mystery.Year 0 begins.
Alright everyone, I've been away for a week on my holidays, what have I missed?

I bumped into Dr Al on the way into led Zep on monday. He was loitering in the style of a paparazzi with a massive zoom lens camera."the Edge has just gone in", he said.

I've already started mate :)But why I'm asking is that I'm writing a thriller based around all that mental SIM card stuff and I'm going to smatter loads of URLs through it and a few of them I was hoping to use were from here. :(Although I'd already copied the first page of the most important thread so that's sommat.
I spend a load of time updating the Maverick message board to a trendy new one, so you have to go one better and commit online suicide to get a new version.A bit bloody dramatic if you ask me.
Can we have a reference page somewhere for any name changes - so we can keep track.For the record I used to be Lord Smutty Lips.
Alright lads.Been away for a bit.Working like. I know, I know, the cheeky cunts.Anyway had an SOS from the Ayatollah (DHM) about the crash, so thought I'd try to remember what I'd written.Now let's see.....Bowie v's Beatles, Wales V's England, Tea v's Coffee, ummm...there were more weren't there?
fuck. yes ... just remembered now the Johnny Owen posts. I mean I know there was a load of other stuff like ponchos and teeth and stuff, but the Johnny Owen posts .......... magic
