Haven't seen any updates recently about getting access going for the old SMA Message Board archive.  I really miss it, and need some of the information in it.  Just sayin'.

I haven't heard anything from Paul in awhile but I know he is busy with other things.  I think everyone just needs to be patient.  It may take some time.

Martin, were you this kind of child?

 

Mike,

LOL!  I don't think so because I would be busy drawing.  Usually my parents had to tell me to stop drawing because we WERE there and I hadn't noticed.

I know how it is.  Just my neurotic insecure side coming to the fore.

Actually I think of all people, you have the best reason to be impatient about this- considering you're in the middle of working on your database and need the site info in order to do that - I totally understand. Just couldn't pass up the joke - it was RIGHT THERE waiting for somebody to post that image!!  

And YOU are just the one to do it!

We want our baby back!! 

Just to keep him on his toes, I'm going to fly to Denmark, hunt Paul down, deliver a resounding pimp slap, then turn around and go home. 

*Note - could not find a REAL pimp slap. A true pimp slap must be delivered backhand so hard that the recipient spins around.

That is however a very good forehand variant, delivered with style and panache. I give it a 9.5

I especially like the added touch of the long hair which accentuates the spin factor. 

Had the woman attended one of my self-defense classes she would have seen the slap coming and either stepped back, snapping a front kick with the point of her left pump into his floating ribs or solar plexus; or, stepping inside his swing, would have blocked it with a high right elbow causing him to slam her fist into his own face with the force of his attack.  Had she done either, I would give her a 10.0.  Had I witnessed a man slap a woman like that, the responses I just described would be a love tap in comparison to what I would do to him.  Unfortunately, some abused women would then defend their assailants' actions.

While I appreciate your sympathy for my own desire to work with the data, I am sure Paul is quite busy with more pressing demands on his time, and once he manages to clear out a space on his schedule, will do a bang-up job of making the old board available and searchable.  These things always take far more time and effort than they would appear to need at first glance.

Maybe it's just me, but I am not understanding the slapping business.  

Anyway, last I heard, Paul was trying to adapt the old files to work with vBulletin since the original forum software is no longer supported.  This is a huge undertaking and will require patience from all the members here.

Ok GOSH!!! 

Seriously, you guys don't see the inherent humor? Traveling halfway around the world, searching a foreign city to find one particular person,  suddenly and unexpectedly unleashing a pimp slap, and then leaving without a word. Imagine it like a short film...

I don't know, it's funny to me, and I suspect Paul would get it. To a Scottsman it's like a tap on the shoulder - just a little reminder. 

ok, I get it.  

I think.  

Must be an age thing.
