First, congratulations!  :)

 

Secondly, you had a good chance to win. As I posted in a message at DarkForce,

although 50-60 people viewed the Monthly Prize, only -4- registered. 

 

"May the odds be ever in your favor".  :)

Or to put it another way...

Forgot to announce this yesterday but yes, we're going to do a 

 

"Bombs away"

 

week here at DarkForce, commencing today and lasting until this next Saturday, June 6th (D-Day, what a coincidence!).

Just pick "D" for Deliver E-mail Bomb from the main menu. The menu is pretty self explanatory, but basically you pick users from the DarkForce BBS you want to "bomb" and up to your bomb limit, you do so. They are given an opportunity to guess who sent the bomb. If they are wrong, they are then terminated (disconnect). If they guess right, they are shown who sent the bomb so they can retaliate. Users have a limited amount of bombs and only so many bombs can be stacked on any 1 caller.

 

Good luck, have fun and


                                    B O O M !


PS Oh, don't forget to check the Obituary for funny user "deaths". :)

Spelling correction.

Okay, "Bombs Away" week is officially over at the DarkForce! BBS.

 

I hope everyone had fun with it. At best, it's a light hearted attempt at

humor for our callers. At worst, it can drive you crazy.

 

I'd like to thank everyone who (willingly or UN-willingly) participated.

 

Until next year, "ka-boom". 

 

PS Oh, here's a screenshot showing the obituary and what happened to

those who failed to defuse their bombs. :)

Hey gang - meant to get things squared away for this month/next month

but wound up (for lack of time) going on vacation first. Hotel's 'net service

is okay, but for some reason telnet sucks. Timed out after 30 seconds on

my first try, literally would enter text and things would set there a while

before sending.

 

Anyway, will be home this weekend and will get everything taken care of.

 

Thanks for being patient!  :)

Just to let everyone know, we are having some power issues here in E. Kentucky.

 

Power went off around 8pm Monday night and didn't come back on until around

1pm today. Then, right in the middle of trying to answer Doc Clu's PM about 

DarkForce being down, it went off again, but only for a few minutes. Now, the

weather forecast is for 3-5" of new snow and possibly ice tonight, so...

 

Who knows? :)

 

I've got UPS's on all my machines but nothing that lasts longer than an hour or so.

 

So...if you call and can't get through, it's probably another outage. Rest assured though,

we'll be back up ASAP once power is restored...again...and again...and again...  :)
