Hi everyone.  Kinda found this sister site by accident and it seemed rude not to pop in and say hello.

No doubt some will recognise me from another place, which isn't quite what it used to be    :angry:

Thank you for the days, the days you gave me

I have just spotted this... I saw you this morning .. Please join in.. We don't bite..
Don't ask me.. I know nuffink..


Welcome to our world. 

Looking over on our mothership I see that there must have been quite an exodus from OFC. I hope more of your bunch show up here soon too. 


So do I.  There have been attempts to abandon ship before, but they didn't work out for a raft of reasons (see what I did there?😉😁)

Am hopeful of your creation(s) though...early signs are good, if that's not too patronising.

Don't fully understand the parallel universe sites situation,  but I'm going to use them as one big place with just the need to leave two tabs open to leap between them.


PF appeared to be going tits up. It looked like it was maybe going to close down and I didn't want to lose contact with all the folks there so I set up a clone site that ran on a Raspberry Pi on my home internet connection as a backup. That caused an enormous row which ended up with this site on proper hosting with its own domain name.
I still run a backup/development version on my Pi at home - https://letschat.digitalham.co.uk/

This is the thread over on PF  that resulted from the row - https://www.pensionersforum.co.uk/index.php/topic,30682.0.html


Well that was a trial for all concerned. 

I've seen forums close without much notice - theswamp was one, and UKgeneralchat was another which some members may remember, which can be mentioned as they no longer exist and people lose touch (fortunately in some cases  :evil: )

I'm going to sit on the fence as I can see both sides of the argument.  Like a few, I'll post on both, and will post on other forums too as appropriate.

As said, finding a safe haven for those dealing with Kim Jong-un north of the 38th parallel would be nice, and having two "linked" potentials is, IMHO, a bonus.
