  1. did you sneak in #9 after publishing? I am sure it wasn't there when I did my replies and about 5 others missed out too.
  2. Rather than 'science', how about 'practices' or 'studies'? I don't even like the fact the word pseudoscience has the word science in it ;) Other than that I think it is a good idea. It was originally part of the spirituality subforum. Why do you think it needs a separate one?
  3. did you leave or did you get a suspension? That might be the difference since you revived this ancient thread.... did nabraxas ever resurface?
  4. For those who might have missed it in the other thread, here is a link to the pics of the camp.
  5. I only just connected your forum ID to who you are shruman . Sorry, too many names and faces for my brain to cope with. Was good catching up anyway, even if i was clueless ;)
  6. he wrote "of you" not "from you" or "about you". ie he was referring to the community, not you specifically ph.
  7. not sure I understand what you're referring to. the search function for this software has always been rather crap so I mostly use google to search the forums. The good news is that the next upgrade will apparently introduce a whole new search engine.
  8. Many thanks to everyone who attended the Andyamine memorial camp! We laughed, we cried, and we partied to remember our dear friend. Also many thanks to Christian's family for being so supportive, for sharing the pictures and videos, for giving the event their blessing and support, and most of all for having given us such a special person. I hope we can do our bit to make sure his good deeds are remembered (there are rumours this camp thing might become a regular event ;) ). Christian loved the plants (photo provided by his brother). The camping site The Marquee keeping us (sort of) dry Friends sharing thoughts and stories about, and pictures of Christian Christian's close friends posing with tree (a special picture for his mum). Then planting it. (4 out of 6 are horticulturists - we got this ;) ) Everyone joined in The memorial tree (spotted gum) Toby brought from Sydney, with the plaque made by Hillbilly. Immediately after planting, before niggles tidied it up on sunday. Christian was a raver from the very early days of the Melbourne rave scene. So naturally there was techno after dinner. Thanks DJ Orion for the sound gear and your awesome track selection. 2018-04-22 00.22.38.mp4 Tree looks much better now. Thanks niggles. Meanwhile there was a sapo/kambo ceremony going on just out of frame. Sorry, no pics (and luckily no sound either ;) ). The sunday hike up Mt Chincogan Enjoying the enhanced views from the top
  9. wow! This is a huge plant package from an awesome grower so you can bid with confidence. I've promoted this in the facebook group too.
  10. The tech people set the firewall too aggressive as a response to the DDoS. I fixed this a few days later to be more suitable for the forum software. I've also made all bans temporary, so even if you do get caught in the firewall just try again 24-48h later. There is still a lot of activity, so we're still a target, but at the moment the firewall is dealing with it all quite well.
  11. I just wanted to thank everyone for their generous contributions. The forum tab collected $245, Christian's mum Gail donated $250, and several people handed me $20 and $50 notes over the weekend. Tony and Karyn donated heaps of food and drink, Kevin a couple of kilos of lamb, Dylan a couple of kilos of super fresh tuna, etc. The table just kept filling with more and more food, so I've probably missed a few. Hiring a marquee costs bout half of buying it, so i bought one. Hiring toilets costs about 1/3rd of buying them, so i bought one and Rodni bought the other one. Kevin paid for the audio visual gear out of his own pocket! I also paid for the firewood. Thank you everyone. You made this a breeze. We only used about 1/4 of the firewood and have toilets and marquee, so we are already set for the next one ;)
  12. Ahh, what an awesome weekend. You guys are awesome guests and really make it happen despite weather and technical problems (projector did indeed blow from the rain). That's a great pic Horus! (Can I use that in the FB post please?) I'll make a more comprehensive post once I get some pics off various people.
  13. due to the server issues some folks could not get their tickets before the cut off date. Don't fret. Just go ahead and buy them by friday afternoon and then send me pm. Make sure to send pm!!
  14. sorry about the site problems we were under DDoS attack. Bad timing. But everything is OK now. Marquee is already up so the ground should stay dry. Starting with the rest of the set up today. Looking forward to seeing you all
