Welcome to CU!

We are in the process of restoring our various forums so for the time being this is the Welcome Wagon.

Tell us a bit about yourself. How did you find us, why did you come back (if applicable), what are you looking for in a discussion board?

We don't bite (well, not in the Lounge). ;)

Wow, cool...am I an official Member of the Diaspora? Sounds ominous...

I'm here because Shannon made me. I came back because I had nothing better to do (but I find some of you here to be worthy of my time) Oh, yeah. I write horror. My book might get done and hopefully published by the next millennium. :cool:

Ya know, JV...your lame-ass attempt at humor will not get you an answer to that question! I had plenty of warped and twisted story ideas LONG before I met my lovely wife. Being married to Shannon is like a bright, shiny ray of sun- Well, NOT in the morning, usually...:D

Hey...Unfortunately I wasn't very astute in reading some of the new information...and the site was down for seemingly forever..... and didn't realize when I logged in I could get the Mods to reinstate my old login. I tried for several days and thought something was wrong with my PW.....and I don't really care about post count or anything.....and I kind of like my new name.
I was formerly Hokieguy...so...just checking in.

I was an occasional poster on the old forums, just re-registered here. The upgrade looks nice! I spend too much of my time arguing with Socialists and far left-wingers on some other sites and it's nice to have a place to visit that reminds me not every poster on the internet is a whack job far-left radical, and I'm not the only conservative left in the world... even though it sometimes feels that way.

Going back into CU and check things out. Saw the post above, said I had to reply to a post, yours seemed as good as any. Going back into the void now, no reply needed, still just learning.
