At the bottom of the screen is PAGE 2 of Conversations!

Hmmmmmm. We used to get cut off before but looks like the Village people will let the older threads live on. :-) I see that other forums at GW already have multiple pages in their Conversations.

"I see that other forums at GW already have multiple pages in their Conversations. "

Here at Maple Syrup Manufacturing (satellite division) we are more concerned with QUALITY rather than quantity. Yeah, yeah! That's the ticket. :-)

They also let me stay logged in from yesterday. Is it Christmas? :D

Hey, I get what they're doing now! They put us through hell, so that every little tidbit they throw at us will seem like a feast!

How's the production going down there Semper?
Remember you are only in on this Maple Syrup Manufacturing on a trial basis. You have to produce, screw the quality!

WARNING.
DRH1 gets all put out with other people turning out a better product than they do in Vermont.
So watch for saboteur's wearing, chest waders, snow shoes and a wide brimmed hats!

LOL!!! Oh what sad times are these when we get so excited about getting back to where we were before they improved the site! :-)

I like that the Conversations threads will live a little longer but they also are looking into the viability of keeping any of the Conversations areas going. We shall see.

Hmmmmm. Is it Maple Syrup production time already?

"...You have to produce, screw the quality!..."

A GREAT company motto! LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!

C3D, hold the syrup

I remember way back when, before Bill Gates, it was absolute misery to combine files from one database into another. If one database used a particular operating system and the other another it might take days to months with whole sections lost and that meant you needed to print out all the data before you began 'just in case'. That doesn't even go to the hardware problems that required the computers to be directly connected instead of the modern miracles that allow one computer to talk to others in France or San Francisco or Ft. Wayne at the same time. I also remember the bad jokes in the industry news letters directed at Bill's idea (and Bill) that it should be possible for all systems to comunicate. (Bill has the last laugh but he's showing good stuff by sharing the wealth. He is also doing a fair to middlin' job of anticipating the jokers.) I guess what I am saying is that since I first noticed a format problem on Dec. 18, iVillage has done a pretty fair job of integrating Gardenweb into their system. I expect there was some lost data but on the whole, it has been going well. I have had no problems. I hope the remaining data loss problems are corrected. I will read the new terms of use and address any reservations such as ID sharing on the suggestions and comments forum. Hope we fare well. Sandy

LOL! You might be onto something there Brandy. I believe some refer to this as Cognitive Dissonance.

DRH1 can have this job anytime he wants. My Honey Do list has never been bigger since I started working at the MSM (Satellite Division). Oh, don't get me wrong... this is a sweet job. My main duty is stalking the stores. I just met our Union leader Attila the Honey. Bittersweet character!

Semper Maple Syrup producing is a saps job really, but stick with it. You'll soon be dripping with the sweet smell of success all around you.
Attila the Honey tends to flit around sticking her stinger into everything, I'd rather see her just bee herself instead of a bumbling nosy parker. She can be a lot of fun when she gets a buzz on.
Glad she flew into see you,she must bee feeling better last I heard she was sick with a case of hives.
I don't want to drone on, but you've got to learn to bee a happy little worker.
God Save the Queen.

Head Huncho Horton,

I just don't know what all the buzz is about. Lets face it. This is a sappy job. The only thing that has kept me here is my posh office sweet. That and the rich family history of this company. I have had the pleasure of meeting several of the top brass of the Honey family:

The two brothers Honey Dothis and Honey Dothat working in Productions Department.... Honey I. Shrunkthekids in charge of Video Productions... Honey Luv from Human Resorucers... Honey Imhome the teleworking liaison... Honey Nutcheerios in merchandising.... and Honey Bunny from top level management.

Ah Semper, I see that you missed meeting, Honey I Gottaheadache, from the Customer Relations and Lame Excuses Department,lucky you.
She's a real hummer!

You guys are speaking in strange tongues again. Now I am going to lose sleep wondering who Honey Prime might be. Whoever, I am more than likely to offend while trying to adjust the dosage of the new meds. Last night I flustered three pharmacy clerks and two night managers because THEY DIDN'T HAVE MY PILLS!!! Lots of phone action and rushed unpacking of shipments to locate my pills so I wouldn't scare the cat again this morning. The only consolation has been seeing that while I paid $40.00, the actual cost with no insurance would have been $195.99. Hummmm, makes you wonder about those bee sting cures. Hey Chickie. You and Semper have been conspiring off forum I see. Imagine my enjoyment of this conundrum. After a confused thank you the only question is why???? Sandy

Sandy, You are reading something into those posts that isn't there again!
It is just us bee-in' silly B's and fooling around with words, nothing malicious whatsoever.

Don't worry.... bee happy,

Now I am the one confused! Semper and I discuss mountain bikes sometimes off forum. I'm not sure that is much of a conspiracy.

Why would I be seen with the likes of Semper off forum through e mails? He is truly a gentleman. He is honest. He is respectful. He and my DH have so much in common it is at times frightening. He, among others, is proof positive that one can make real friends in the cyber world! He is a very fun and funny man! I am honored that I am in his loop of friends. :-)

I am very much enjoying the exchange between himself and Horton. How do they so easily come up with their play on words is a delightful mystery! :-) They had a similar exchange about Canadian Geese / Goosi earlier last year. As Horton said, there is no hidden meaning in their exchanges other than good fun!

I must have landed in the land of paranoia and conspiracy theory with my new pills. I plead your indulgence while we try to get this thing right. I'm very disappointed that there is no Queen Bee at the center of their story. "If it be False" then there needs be a conflict to enliven the story and satisfy our desire to know who, where, what, when and why. Certainly, they have populated a fine court to surround their queen. What a shame to miss the opportunity. Sandy

OH GEEEEZ! Why don't you just go ahead and tell the world about too.

BTW, you *KNOW* you've been honored when you get compared to the Great Sir Nappy himself. Thanks for the unmerited compliments.

Sandy, of course, the BIG question here is: To bee or not to bee? :-)

Further research into the MSM corp. has revealed more fascination information:

Before reaching stardom, Francis Bavier worked at MSM as a cafeteria cook. Everyone knew her as Aunt Bee. She actually got her first chance to be on the screen thanks to a MSM TV commercial where she opens a competitor's jar and asks: "Where's the bee???".

William Shatner worked in R&D department many years ago. He coined the MSM motto: "Bee me up Scotty!".

Ah Semper 'm old B, you're such a hive of trivial, yet somewhat interesting,information.
You must flit between the floral gardens of the www to collect all that nectar with which to produce those honeycombs of daunting data and enthralling enlightenment.
More flower power to you, just keep pollen them in.
