I've not visited this place for what must be almost ten years and it's
not changed a bit.

Mosly the same people, mostly having the same fights.

What's happened to Ian O?

And what's MacP calling himself these days?

I'm sad to hear that.  Illness or accident?
Apoplectic fit. Someone said that Scotland
shouldn't be beholden to either Westminster
*or* the Presbyterian Kirk and he just keeled
over majestically, like a falling tree. I wrote a
stirring eulogy praising his tenacity and fitness
as an adversary, and defending his right to be
Utterly, Completely *Wrong* in Heaven, where
I presume he is giving God ulcers, even as we
speak. (MacP will be next: I just have to find
the right Trigger Phrase to cause him to burst
like an overinflated balloon...)

My mind was drawn back to s.c.s when I preparing a lecture on online
communities and read something about how Usenet was in decline due to
competition from all the new flashy social media sites now available
on the web. I thought I'd take a wander past s.c.s to see if things
were still happening and Ian O was the first person I thought of.

I only live a few miles away from where he did and, when I was a
regular here, I always intended to try and arrange to go for a beer
with him sometime. I wish I had.

On the positive side it's good to see that this place is still alive
and reasonably well, some of my other old Usenet haunts have nothing
but Spam and tumbleweed these days.

I think I'll stick around for a bit.

Thanks, Jeff. I can't help but be heartbroken especially with reading all
the heartfelt messages posted about Ian on the part of the s.c.s. regs.

I see in one of the messages that Ian's website has been preserved for
posterity:

I didn't get my first 'puter untill 1998 and I didn't learn about NG's until
long after that. When I finally did, I used to enjoy reading a great many
"history" sites, alas so many have been destroyed by very strange indivuals.
Revisionists were and still are the bane of many. I remember when 'Hines'
still used to post on-topic, albeit even then he was flaming Paul Gans.

Working from the link on your page to the thread about Ian's death at

it's still at http://fizzypop.v.servelocity.net/ian/ His nephew's
email address, in Google's inimitable fashion, is "JamesP"

I don't log into Google Groups; perhaps one of our posters who posts
from GG can get the whole thing. Then you could write him and ask
whether he might have the originals? Although it doesn't look like
they've done anything about posting more, they evidently are paying for
hosting to maintain the site.

Is it really almost three years Ian's been gone?

I don't want any of the content of what were Ian's 'proper pages'.
My interest is purely in the 'easy SCSI' page (there was only ever
one page) which he set up to 'get at' me (all very friendly !)

I very much doubt if the original photographs were kept, even by
Ian. He only had that easy SCSI site up for a few months and the
photos were probably lifted off the web. By the same token,
I haven't kept all the photos that I used on my site several years
ago for 'joke' purposes.

it's still at http://fizzypop.v.servelocity.net/ian/ His nephew's
email address, in Google's inimitable fashion, is "JamesP"
It looks as though it might be 'perry'. That's Sheila's name.

I don't log into Google Groups; perhaps one of our posters who posts
from GG can get the whole thing. Then you could write him and ask
whether he might have the originals?
Good guess:) I just logged on to Google and it is james _ thomas _
***@yahoo.co.uk No spaces between the underscores.
He made only that one post to Google.

I'm looking for info on the missing photographs !!!
I think the one "The Duke and his niece (Hem-Hem)" was Elaine and
Moses. I'll dig out my zip disks and my external drives to see if I
saved them.

That's what I thought too.

Anyone any thoughts on : "Who is this s.c.s. regular, which other
regular is she assaulting and why?"

I suspect it's the photo of Stephen Hamilton & Jim Woodard ?
(If so, it's also in the Gallery, so I've got that one)


I've put some comments on the page to see if it'll jog any memories.

I'd have thought Mrs. Caine wielding her skillet at Mountaintop.

I'm sure it's here somewhere. Maybe this will be my inspiration to do
some spring housecleaning......................or not. :)

I no longer have any of my previous stuff online. It was uncanny, but
my trusty old WebTV (that I liked so much, and that had everything
saved) completely conked out on me right at the time of Ian's death.
As I inherited his brand new laptop, it seemed foolish to invest in a
whole new WebTV unit just for all my saved files, so I ended up
forfeiting all of it. After my last post this morning, I've tried
looking up some of Ian's saved stuff (he never threw out anything) and
I can't get into the 'Blue Yonder' things. The next time I come to
Scotland, I'll bring the laptop with me, and perhaps we can spend an
afternoon trying to access some of his files that I don't know how to
get into.

It was there.
He was restricted as to where he could build the garage.
So - he built it over the spring.
It's been very useful in keeping down the water bills!

I'm sure. We've a high water table here and I've been
known to drill down into for summertime watering my-
self, I'm just surprised having running water under a
(slab?) structure like a garage doesn't undermine the
foundation...I guess his slab must be "floating" better
than mine (which, I swear, is being slowly undermined
by a field ant colony.)

(I have to admit, I'm also a bit surprised he got the
permit to build over it...around here, once the village
engineers determine there's a natural spring...or any-
thing similar...on the property, permits have a way of
evaporating.)

The house was built in the 1950s - and I doubt the village knew of the
spring. He put in some sort of cap, and a connector for a hose.
The house (not the garage...) has a full-height finished basement, and I
don't recall it ever being damp.

spring - Quell/Brunnen
What Shiela has under the garage
A spring of water
('wasser' but no 'feder')
What about . . .
A tiger will 'spring' onto its prey ??
This is a verb the others are nouns.
It could be turned into a noun, though - "the spring of the tiger when
attacking its prey".

Of course verbs can be nouned. They're called 'gerunds'. Most of
them end in '-ing'.

Oh, we had a bottle of it in the Rhine many years ago.
Didn't have the traditional Zwiebelkuchen to go with it though.

Let's say, despite having the opportunity to buy it again some
years later, I didn't bother.

Participle.

In linguistics, a participle ... is a derivative of a non-finite
verb, which can be used ... as a modifier. Participles often share
properties with other parts of speech, in particular adjectives
...

saved them.
It was Moses and me at a Chinese restaurant in North Platte,
Nebraska. I was on my way back to Colorado from Iowa.

Hi, Lesley:

The entire thing was completely dead. Not just the remote keyboard,
for instance. I replaced those a few times. If there was a way, we
weren't aware of it. Anyway, it's too late now. I've e-mailed jjj
saying that when time permits, I hope to delve deeper into Ian's
files, but for the time being, I'm too busy. Still working multiple
jobs, babysitting, etc.

Except when he adopted his Lin Dores personna.
Dores was the best, funniest part of IOM.
Grizzel O'Twatt was pretty good, too.
Remember the 'Alternative scs Website' that he set up ?
Complete with "adult content" because mine was too tame.
I've changed computers - has anyone still got the URL of that?
Me too (changed computers), but I fired up my old laptop and
found I still had a 2005 copy of my website which had my response
page to Ian's launch of 'easy SCSI'.
It had a link (with URL) to Ian's page.
Post by Lesley Robertson
It might be findable on the Wayback Machine at Internet Archive
Which is here at : http://www.archive.org/web/web.php

I tried the URL and got the page, unfortunately, the photographs
are not displayed, only the text. Here's a *direct* link to the page :

The original URL was :

The last time I saw Ian, was when he was doing a photo safari in
Sutherland. He gave me a lift from my uncle's house in Edinburgh, up to
Melness, where he took a number of excellent pictures (one of them was
taken from the top of my drive!), before continuing on his way.

You'll be telling me you've got a flush system in the garden cludgie next.

Ian was easily the second best poster in here. I didn't post anything when

The last time I saw Ian, was when he was doing a photo safari in
Sutherland. He gave me a lift from my uncle's house in Edinburgh, up to
Melness, where he took a number of excellent pictures (one of them was
taken from the top of my drive!), before continuing on his way.
Some of those photos are on his website.
I thought I remembered you mentioning that you had a good view of Ben
Loyal from your driveway.
And from my living room. And the front bedroom.
A living room *and* a bedroom!
ooOOOooooh!
The standard of housing must have improved enormously since I was last in
Melness.
You'll be telling me you've got a flush system in the garden cludgie next.
Ian was easily the second best poster in here. I didn't post anything when
he died because everything I tried to write seemed trite and stupid so I
ended up not saying anything at all.
You were away on holiday at the time as I recall.

No doubt that he was well-liked.
Except when he adopted his Lin Dores personna.

Can't recall - maybe the news was waiting for me when I got back to Cairns
then.

I've been on holiday for about 3 years now though so the odds are good.

Were you in Cairns 2 1/2 years ago? Maybe you were in transition or
something. I vaguely recall your first post as being something like
(paraphrasing here) 'I was going to post something witty but...'. Elaine
was quite touched by the email you sent her, oops, did I say that out
loud? There goes your reputation, sorry.

That rings a bell. Your memory of the time is probably more reliable than
mine.
I think I had just returned from my somewhat-less-than-epic expedition to
the northernmost tip of Australia via about 1,000 miles of almost trackless
wilderness in our specially equipped Landcruiser.
The horrendously difficult 'driving' conditions and the remoteness of the
wilderness wasn't the problem - it was the PFD's near-constant shrieking and
screaming from the passenger seat that got to me in the end.
Yet more of her perrennial me, me, me, self-centredness once more. I mean it
was ME who had to try to keep the 'Cruiser on the windy dirt tracks at
100kph over the notorious 'corrugations' on the 'good' stretches. Then it
was ME who had to prevent the damn thing from rolling over or rearing back
over itself half a dozen times a day on the not-quite-so-good sections. All
SHE had to do was relax and enjoy the scenery.
I aborted the mission at about half-way IIRC.
The PFD eventually made it home about five weeks later.

Nah, it was me who was in Germany on holiday.
I only got home the day of / before the memorial service.

It's hard to believe he died 2 1/2 years ago. Seems like only
yesterday.

It does.
I keep expecting to see a witty comment from him - then I realise that I
never will.

I've not visited this place for what must be almost ten years and it's
not changed a bit.
Mosly the same people, mostly having the same fights.
What's happened to Ian O?
And what's MacP calling himself these days?
It is indeed a time warp.
A haven for those of us who are advancing in years and wish the world would
slow down a bit.

Good to see you've not changed either. Not in Scotland anymore I

Nope - still adorable and as universally popular as ever.

Not in Scotland anymore I understand.

You missed out the full stop. Thanks anyway.

But no - decided to do a bit of travelling while I can still walk without a
zimmer frame.
It was supposed to have been a ten year world tour and I had intended to be
in
Korea or China by now. However I took a wrong turn in New Zealand and ended
up in tropical far north Australia for the moment. Now it seems like a good
idea to stay
here for a year or two what with the impending end of civilisation as we
know it
in every other western country on the planet.
I was a property developer in a very minor way for a while but, what with my
keen eye for the future, I've recently become a slum landlord instead.

Also I'd really like to take this opportunity to say it's great to see you
back - but as
you might remember I'm a stickler for honesty.

You will have noticed that the brain disease that was once AWS has now
got worse.
