Jaime just posted yesterday, I thought.

ETA: Yeah, it was in the Unhijackable thread. His profile and recent posts are still active, though, so he's around.

Edited again because yesterday is not today.

You just missed the date of the post you saw [Wink]

I registered when I lived in Barcelona as "Jaime Vargas". But after I was fired, and lost my business email, I could not retrieve the password to that account so I opened another one as "Jaime Vargas Sánchez" and let the old one die.

Hey, I'm on that list!
I was Hairyfairy. Then I forgot my password, and the email addresss I'd registered with no longer existed. I tried to find a way to get it back but no luck [Frown] (Even got SO deregistered somehow when I used his account to ask how to retrieve the password in the technical forums).

I lurked for a long time, and eventually re-registered as Schpadoinkle. I'm still mostly a lurker though!

Having an invalid email address is the problem that got me booted off, too. It was an oversight on my part, and snopes was kind enough to reactivate my account after I explained the problem. It's definitely a good idea to check your profile periodically to make sure all the information is accurate.

And if you can't get registered, you can email snopes through the main UL page. That's how I got my issues straightened out.

Given snopes expressed and profound dislike for changed registrations, I'd suggest this be done by anyone who has to reregister.

What happened to Jon Up North? I remember he said he resigned from his airline job towards the beginning of the year, and that was the last I saw him. I don't recall him saying that leaving his job meant he wouldn't be able to post anymore, but maybe I just missed that part.

I appologise if he's already been covered in this thread, but you know, 21 pages... Ya know, it would be kind of nice if the search engine had a way to search within one thread. Is there a way to do that?

I don't believe he left as much as he just doesn't have time. I've heard from him a couple times since he got the new job and he's really just extremely busy. He's doing well as far as I know, though.

I don't think so, not with the current board software. What I do in cases like this is use the browser's Find function (through the edit menu on my browser, probably Ctrl-F on a Windows machine) which lets me look for a keyword on the current page.

I used to have a ULMB searcher on my google bar. But I upgraded my firefox and it stopped working. Since I don't know how to write a firefox plugin, what I did was make a custom google search
http://google.com/coop/cse?cx=012848453068190175112%3Azhiremvw39i
and add that as a search with my DictionarySearch, so I can highlight and right click text and search for it in the ULMB.

Thanks.

I've been debating whether to say this in its own thread or not, but I've recently taken on a number of new tasks/responsibilities/missions-in-life, and so my posting is likely to be considerably more infrequest (I was going to say "erratic," but it's always been that) than it had been. I used to be a daily, I may slide to weekly or more. We'll see. I may make up for what I lose in frequency with corresponding gains in flammability. [Wink]

Sorry to bump an old thread, but heck, the title says speak up. I'm still alive, Zabia, and anyone else who's been wondering. Just wrapped up a run of "A Christmas Story" (I played Mother) and the computer time has been extremely limited. I actually tried to sign on the other day, after weeks of snopes withdrawal, only to see the dreaded "closed for maintenance" message. Gah!

I'm doubting anyone missed me or even noticed, but I thought I'd pop in. Usually I post while at work, but this month has just been crazy busy! There was a stretch of a few weeks where I didn't even have time to read the boards, let alone post.

I'm not saying I'll definitely be around a lot again, but I registered for the new board and I will hopefully find more time to visit [Smile] I miss it!
