In the name of all the Nut Lodgers and Cyber pets, I name this thread 'Chronicles of Nutlodge'!!


LaGooner Report 3 Dec 2009 22:28

LOL YG Well done this thread is well and truly up and running now. I will employ you to launch the ark when it is fully fitted out for sailing


YG Report 3 Dec 2009 22:28

LaGooner Report 3 Dec 2009 22:30

Nite nite this young thread needs it's sleep.


AuntySherlock Report 3 Dec 2009 22:40

i can see that sense, good taste and intelligence have prevailed in the naming of the new thread.

While the nutters are sleeping off the strain on their brains I will whoosh the temporary thread.

Best wishes, good fortune and a long existence to all who enter these very unhallowed portals.

And for the uninitiated I might paste in an explanation of the rebuilding of Nut Lodge following the disastrous explosion of yesteryear.

About to have a one person party as I whoosh the temp thread. I will send it off with all your kind thoughts.


LaGooner Report 3 Dec 2009 23:00

Thanks I have added you to the visitors book. Please do pop in and see us all again.

Temporary thread whooshed with due ceremony.

I have kept a copy which will be available to those Nut Lodgers who were unaware, unavailable, or just un anything during the dire consequences of the morning.

I think we now need a Nut Lodge flag. It will be flown slightly below the flags of the nations of participants of Nut Lodge as is the custom. The cyber pets have constructed suitable flag poles around the perimeter of Nut Lodge.

And before you even say Arsenal oh esteemed and might Queenie with the broomstick and laser gun......

It will not be predominantly red and white (although we will consider a small decoration in those colours), and it will not feature a giant cannon. Yes, just as I thought I can hear the brain ticking over already. So smooth down the fur and put the fangs away.

When you have added in your ideas I will ask our resident artist of the squiggles, Pauline, to design and draw our flag.

We will then have a flag, an anthem and a cruising ark.


LaGooner Report 4 Dec 2009 09:15

LOL Aunty I will settle for a shield shape in the middle maybe with a touch of red and white braiding here and there.

Thanks for the heads up Aunty - would have been scratching my head wondering what was the matter with the my bookmarks otherwise.

Haven't been on the computer since about 7pm ish on what on earth has been going on? Take my eye off you for a day or so, and all sorts of gremlins creep in!!!! Are you sure that the CP haven't had a hand in this??


AuntySherlock Report 4 Dec 2009 10:10

Quite truthfully DET I believe there is a very big Cyber P!!! on the boards and this one is no Pet.

We have trained our CPs to better behaviour than this. So OK we have the occasional explosion, technological mishap, catapult misfiring, incorrect distribution of pink custard and rapid birth rate of intermingled species; however on the whole they are well behaved.

Her Maj and I went over every possibility for a reason why and unless you can think of anything we have missed, which will be pretty difficult until I can get the content of the temporary thread to you, we will all still be pretty much in the dark and the mire.


LaGooner Report 4 Dec 2009 12:23

Any news on thread yet Aunty ? I am just heading to my mailbox to take a shuftie.

note. Just looked nothing as yet.


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 4 Dec 2009 12:42

sigh.......I was going to crow about a new delivery of Trader Joe's Laceys Cookies (the ones like Florentine's sandwiched together with the chocolate on the inside).....but in the circumstances, 't would be better to share.

Open the windows and stand by for incoming!!!!

hello there you all are i am a visitor lol or guest so i need to sign in
i love the name


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 4 Dec 2009 15:45

As long as you supply copious quantites of Pink Custard and Mushroom Omlettes, you are counted as a valued member of the establishment - lol

(that's a point - DET is missing as well!)

Update on fair usage restrictions. Gave up waiting for OH to contact the providers and did it myself.

Usage for July- Oct averaged 13 GB, then for Nov ****100.16 GB****!!!!!!!!!!!

As you've all been suggesting, someone must have been piggybacking it but got shut out when OH restricted access to named pieces of equipment, hence the 0.16 GB between the 22nd Nov (when the fair usage restrictions came in) and the end of the month.

The upshot is the restrictions have been lifted and they suggested we install Usage Monitors on the various laptops/PCs.

Found you!

Thank you LG, I would never have found it.

Is the new name to trick GR into thinking this thread belongs to someone else?

I'll go and have a read of the thread now to see what I've missed.

DET, 100gb, for one month, someone's been taking the p***

You need to glare at a few of your neighbours, see if any of them go red or look away.
