purple people unite.


even though i didn't post much in it, i always found myself reading back page after page when I was bored.

drivinfaster 02-26-2014 07:43 PM

heeyyyyyy.......:eeps: who put "the tacos did it" in the tags??:cry:



no, they didn't. know how i know?? :dunno:

cuz my tacos be stealthy, yo!!:angel::D:p;)



and cj and jen, you guys are no longer purplez :nono:


i think the e36 forum has been one of the best, though.

no 'official' mod has been needed, the biggest threads (ot & pics), and quite a lot of site supporters.

oh yeah, and we managed to crisis and crash the site....:eeps: sorry 'bout that....:eeps:


but seriously, i think we're an ok bunch. and i second the round of drinks @ bfe. :D

I admit, I was the taco abuser. :tsk:

Oh, purplez. This musta been charged to my stupid hacked credit card. I guess since we broke the site, the least we could do is pay them to fix it :rofl:


And like we need a reason to drink at bimmerfest :angel: :rofl: :thumbup:

Njohc 02-26-2014 07:52 PM

I know just the drink: http://www.drinksmixer.com/drink858.html

drivinfaster 02-26-2014 07:55 PM

s'okay....shoulda knowed it was you, with proper punctuation and all.....:p;)

and yeah, i know,....like there aren't going to be enough reasons already to get down and funky @ bfe.

maybe we should get t-shirts made up with the actual #of posts in the ot thread. a badge, so to speak....to go along with the bf e36 group?? :dunno:


edit: my swearword would probably be 'farfegnugen'

Yes, for with our $9 donation every 6 moths we can definitely afford the bandwidth for this site. What is a couple of grand a month, right? :rofl:


All these site changes are coming to fast for me. First we loose OT and now they want to put a moderator in the e36 sub-forum. It is too much.

iiNFAMOUS 02-26-2014 08:01 PM

Couple grand a month? this site should be run on a dedicated, at least 10gbps unmetered server....not even over $1K a month.

drivinfaster 02-26-2014 08:05 PM

actully i don't think we need a moderator in here, just was noticed that there wasn't one dedicated to the group. i kinda think it's a *good* thing we haven't really needed one very often as we really do tend to self-moderate.

i do not see much of a difference at all regarding a mod assignment to our lilttle group. and if it does wind up being ken, he'll be napping most of the time ayway, so yeah,....win-win...:angel:

Tell me you know I was joking! (Except about sticking Ken with the Mod job before he comes on and stops us).

I see you're hard at work to get those 8k posts back.

New mishimoto radiator is on its way to me! I only had to pay $27 shipping. I hope this one lasts. :tsk:

Thanks DF for the reminder!

I took Funny out today for her monthly winter blues ride. Did a few Italian-style carbon removal maneuvers. Oh how I miss her. Only 6 more weeks until the snow will be gone. Thank goodness!

jonesin 02-26-2014 08:20 PM

:( far more than 6 weeks here for no snow. Even longer until I can drive my car or even my bike. :sob:

If they can salvage the OT thread that would be a great idea. They could be like our gang's uniforms.

Of course you were joking. I was just adding on to it.

Did anyone else notice Alan posted? hes become a ghost member!!!

Chad if i had banker hours which involved sitting by a computer all day I'd have lost 8k posts too so :p

Actually though I did get a new job... at a shop that has a powdercoating oven large enough to park my truck in...

jonesin 02-26-2014 08:46 PM

Alan posts nearly as infrequently as you do Chadling. Hell, even Tommy had stopped in a week or two ago!

ZeGerman 02-26-2014 08:49 PM

Oh man, I see a lot has happened in the last day! I was wondering why the Fest had gotten so slow. Hilarious that it was the OT thread. Kinda sounds like it might be resurrected once they figure stuff out, though. And it looks like I had a solid 5k+ posts docked from my count.

drive by72 02-26-2014 08:51 PM

Bah humbug Ed I finally got on the working bandwagon again after two month of unemployment and have been clocking steady 9-10 hour days. I havent even been hovering polysci, and thats what I love to do lol

Did see toms post though. its a shame we dont have our thread to relish in it :shifty

jonesin 02-26-2014 08:53 PM

Welcome back to the working class Chad!

EDIT:

On a side note, I've been working on my taxes the last few days. Did you folks know that I paid more in taxes fourth quarter 2013 than I made in the first three quarters?!?!?!?


Edited edit:

This made me smile.

:rofl: thanks Ed.

Im not quite sure I follow the meme but I like the outcome.

Heres my meme contribution to the new thread. I hope you guys get it lol
