OPPYH


Hello,
I've been visiting this site for almost 10 years. I lurked for quite a while before I joined, and since have met a lot of interesting people. Some I even consider friends. I love Firefly. That was the reason for joining here, and I remember when it was still so very fresh that practically every thread was devoted to it. Discussions, debates, ideas for ways that it should continue. It was a great time, and the sense of community was very strong. Joss himself even posted here(before I joined).
I remember some of the members that have long since left. Succatash(crazy, and invintive) Thatweirdgirl and Manwithpez. I think they are married now but I haven't seen them around these parts in a while.
Thanks Haken for such a fantastic site.
And to all of you that have entertained my thoughts in the past few years I just want to say thank you. You have helped me through some pretty rough times in my life, and I hope I returned the favor when some of you were down also. I also shared some awesome moments here. Laughing, and goofy times abound.
I want to get away from the internet a little, try different things, and basically explore life. for a long while my life has been work, interenet, tv, food, and sleep.
I have to change this. Time is going by too fast, and I want to try something different, not being anchored to my computer each day should allow a lot of extra free time.
If Firefly/Serenity returns in any signifigant way trust me, I'll be back here quicker than anything.

Again, thanks everyone. You people are great, and I have had a blast here!

There's no place I can be since I found Serenity.


Well, you cut off what my question was going to be, when you said you will return if Firefly/Serenity does.

Good luck on your journey. Have a great life.

I'd offer to save a strawberry for you, OPPY, but you know that doesn't work well even with modern technology.
Mudder's, too, requires a certain freshness or it tastes like the lining in the right armpit of a suede browncoat after an outing on Santho.
We've some hodgeberry wine not yet bottled (in barrels since a wild crush party 7 or 8 years ago?) so I'll put a case by for returning prodigals whoever they may be. Bottle for you included.

I could use some Mudder's Milk. I don't think its "horrific" contrary to the good doctors belief.
Thanks.

Y'welcome! We'll raise a bottle in your honor to see you down the ramp, but there's no way I'm saving any for later. Dang stuff gets downright explosive after too many gravity/weightless cycles. Something about the fermentation agents being illegal for private use and the necessity of bringing them in from the Rim.

You are welcome. And thank you for being a part of the FFF.NET family. It's been great having you here and hopefully we'll all still be here when you return. FWIW, some of those who have left have left the site have remained friends with me on Facebook and Twitter. Feel free to drop me a message anytime.

Fellow Browncoat,
Even if we disagree, it's a shame to see you go. Take a vacation from here-- I did, for awhile, and I'm back, but much calmer. SO step way for a time, but drop back in and visit. We'll leave the light ( over the airlock ) on for ya.

OPPYH, I hope that in reality your departure is only giving yourself a break, even if it is an extended one. I never want to think that a fellow browncoat is leaving for good. Yes you should enjoy the other things life has to offer besides your usual. I feel that we may be in the same boat at times.

Anyhoo, good luck in all your endeavors, and check back often. If we can’t get another season of Firefly, or a sequel to the BDM, maybe we can at least rate a mini-series on tv at some point.

Hope to have you back soon, Z

I've seen you as one of the grounding members of this site. Thanks for your time and keep flying. Not much keeps members of this site from that ultimate goal.

I am both envious and happy for you. Thanks for all your posts over the years - especially enjoyed the ones about music.

May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.


Sorry to see you go OppyH, but I understand the need to get away. Did it myself for awhile, and I am not as active as I once was here, but I am still here. Things changes, paths diverge, only to join again down the road.

Safe travels, but most importantly, Keep Flyin'!

I sure get the need to unplug for awhile. Enjoy yourself in whatever the next step is and we'll all be here ( even if in my case it's infrequent ) waiting til you come back.

Have fun this summer!
