Quote from: Old San Antone on April 11, 2021, 05:55:28 AMI will.I forgot one other thing about GMG I don't like: those cutsy thread titles devoted to composers. It makes it tricky searching and hard to find them, as opposed to simply writing their full name and dates.
Quote from: OrchestralNut on April 11, 2021, 05:10:30 AMPlease tell Don (Bulldog) that he is missed on GMG, from ChamberNut (aka Ray).
Quote from: DavidW on April 11, 2021, 06:58:24 AMI came in I would like to say maybe in 2001 or 2002? I was posting on a different forum and I remember that Gurn and Molman told me that they were leaving for GMG, and so I followed them. I would like to say that Herman, Hector, Scarpia and maybe Karl were all in the same boat as well. But it has been so long that my mind is fuzzy on the matter. One of my fondest memories was AnthonyAthletic and I (both of us are big Mahlerites) would mail each other cd burns.
Quote from: OrchestralNut on April 11, 2021, 06:37:02 AMThank you. That's why I am forever grateful for the composer index. I use it constantly.
Quote from: DavidW on April 11, 2021, 07:24:12 AMHoly cow Gurn that means that you have been here continuously for 19 years!
Quote from: "Harry" on April 11, 2021, 07:51:56 AMI have no idea how long I have been here, left a few times came back, so I have been a constant, well maybe from 2006 already under different names though.
Quote from: André on April 11, 2021, 12:08:19 PMA few members have departed to Valhalla. I miss Uffeviking the most. Such a great gal !
Quote from: DavidW on April 11, 2021, 12:23:03 PMYeah do you remember our Onslow fan? I think he might have gone by Egmont but I can't say for sure. He was a nice guy.
Quote from: André on April 11, 2021, 12:08:19 PMWeren't they all variations on 'Harry' ? Before André I was Lilas Pastia and before that, Calaf. I don't know the dates, but it's been a while. A few members have departed to Valhalla. I miss Uffeviking the most. Such a great gal !
Quote from: "Harry" on April 11, 2021, 01:26:12 PMYes a few were, but also some outlandish ones, like Chen Tao "The true path" :laugh:But as to the matter of Lis (Uffeviking) it was a great loss when she died, but then again I saw many go from GMG, most by death, and many because they were disappointed. I remember them, all of them, for as long they are remembered they are not really gone. At this pillar of grief and remembrance I keep myself upright. I realize also when you are at a certain age, and your friends too, deaths are likely to occur more as one wishes, that's the curse of old age.
Quote from: Gurn Blanston on April 11, 2021, 01:57:58 PMWell said, friend Harry!😎🤠
Quote from: Cato on April 11, 2021, 02:39:32 PMYes, very nice!Do you keep records from the pre-2007 forum as to when people joined? I understand that there is an Internet Archive somewhere...and I don't mean the N.S.A.'s quintillion petabyte system!
Quote from: Gurn Blanston on April 11, 2021, 02:49:36 PMThere is something called the Wayback Machine, I used to use it, but don't recall the specifics now. You can probably Google it. The previous iteration of this forum, which existed from 2004(?) to 2007 had a corrupt database problem. Rob had it fixed well enough to allow leafing through it, but eventually the burden it put on him and the server got too much and it was allowed to die in peace ☮️.🤠😎
