If I ever put so much as a finger on d00g it would be to help im up a stairway after I toted his gear up for im. I love d00g (not in a gay way), I miss im. I hope he's OK. I don't have a clue why he aint around anymore.

I don’t know.
I thought this forum was a little bit his baby. Didn't think he would just up and leave...

Don't know his real name, but he used G.H. in emails way back when he and the NAMB gang set up their first seperate forum.

Does Chicken_Salad have an alibi btw...?
If I recall correctly his name is Greg. Like Chi I remember him saying he was having eyesight problems, maybe it got so bad he was no longer able to post anymore. Worst case scenario he croaked.

But who knows? Maybe he will pull an Emperor Palpatine and one day come back out of no-where. I hope so.

d00g was never the epitome of good health, but still a fairly young guy. If heaven forbid he's passed on - if there was foul play suspected prolly is brother killed im.

He used G Harris, but I don't know if that is his actual name. Tomanbeg had a bunch of aliases going. Can't say I always agreed with Dawg but when it comes to running a forum he is unbeaten. He had periods when he was in hospital before I think, but I doubt he was ever absent this long...

I think it might be GregHarris.

Looking through my contacts on my phone I located him, with an address and a note to myself that he was the MadDog of the MadDog forum.

After Christmas I can send a letter or postcard to that address to see if it gets delivered.
I also have an email address for him and can shoot an email to it later today.

If I get any responses to the letter or email I will comment here.

Hope Dawg is well and we hear from him again. If he is no more for this world, Salute Brother! I shall meet you at the Galactic Headquarters in about 50 years!

One weird thing, mildly annoying but no big deal, about the forum software update: For the longest time, posts in certain sections of the forums never showed up in my "Unread Posts" list. The main section was Gaming. So I've got about 17 pages of "unread" posts stretching back for years to peruse. :)

Looking at the names of our latest new members, Davidcam, JessicaRah and Jerrywon, I am going out on a limb and say they are bots. Question is, why haven't they started spamming the place yet?

Also I wonder if Pamela has realised the can come back now.
