MV/Liberace!

Hey there.  If you're wondering just exactly is going on here, I posted this on the BG FartBook group a couple days ago:

Hey, ladies and gents!  This is ol' Liberace, aka MV.  I have a bit of news that some of you will be happy to read: BellGab is going to be reactivated.
I no longer own the BellGab.com domain name or any of the forum content, but the new owner (a lurker going back to 2011) is a trusted **IRL** friend who will enthusiastically maintain it.  The forum will be run with the same hands-off approach you've come to expect, allowing it to remain a boiling pit of sewage where a hive of scum and villainy "closet" together.
I've been told to expect a working forum within 48 hours.
While I'm sure the forum will not be highly active (at least at first), it's nice to know BellGab's THIRTEEN YEARS of history will exist beyond a zip file on a hard drive.
When the forum is finally reactivated, you can contact the admin/owner by emailing support@bellgab.com.


I didn't include private messages in the transfer simply because I felt like people might be a little creeped out by that.  Ta!

There are several modifications that need to be made.  Things like embedding tweets, etc.  As you run into these issues, please post about them in this thread so we can compile a to-do list.

heh heh, and btw, there's a handy little youtube embedder button above the box when you're typing up a post.

By chance will ufoship be back with the gabcasts, broadcast, the techshow with Curtis, etc?

I am only disappointed there wasn't a months-long promo period with "something is coming into the night!" and rampant speculation.  Thank you MV.

It is the Sweet Baby Ray's rib sauce - it is really life extension technology.

Rally Squirrel should not have complained about the fake Legos he bought from George on EBay.

Curtis and I have been talking about doing the show again, but he's not in a position to do podcasts at the moment. I sure hope that changes soon.

I had been regularly posting GC episodes on the BG FartBook page, but it would be nice for all of those shows to have a proper download location. I'll work on it.

Heh heh, I desperately wanted to do the pink exclamation mark.

Haha, yes I do. I think exclamation marks exist only for communication within soul killing corporate work environments. Good to see you too, mang.

If BellGab had a smell, I imagine it being similar to the interior smell of the 1974 Ford pickup my dad used to have.
