Is this mic on?

World affairs, rants, raves, pet hates, both watch and non-watch related, no fighting, disagreement must be settled with handbags and purses at dawn, failing which instant 90 day bans will be put in place on all parties concerned! so rules apply, be nice to each other!

Is this mic on?

Postby Tony » Sat Mar 18, 2017 6:54 pm

Seems there is not much posting and Mr. Mel has not stopped by for some time now.

Anyone here a moderator?

Hi Tony, I sent Mel an email to see how things are going. I know he had been recovering from some eye issues. I'll let you know if I hear back from him.

no reply on Mr. Mel so I have to assume it is not a good situation.
Needless to say I hope for the best. But, it does seem this forum has yet to draw much daily activity.

Off now to another adventure somewhere in this glorious world.
I'll be sure to look far and wide for those treasures that are out there!

happy hunting to all my fellow Timexicans...

Tony

I hope Mel is okay. I haven't visited here lately because watchmaking has taken over my life, lol. I still restore Timex's and love every moment but I only post on my blog now for the most part -> https://plus.google.com/u/0/collection/UodhPB

I'll have to check back here more often as I'm really hoping his personal health issues get sorted ASAP!!!

I did indirectly hear from Mel a few days ago. He is still around but has been having some eye problems.

He may be open to having someone help moderate or even transfer over documents. I'll see if i can find out more.

I'm getting to think this forum is dying but I hope not.

Well, I'm still here. I tend to engage with my Timex collection in streaks. Lately I've bee messing around a lot with Seiko watches, so haven't been posting much here. I'll get back to the Timex watches, unless I'm distracted by my Bulovas, or Elgins, or that pile of Swiss watches that need some TLC :D
I keep hearing the song "No Time Left For You" by the Guess Who playing in my head, but somehow the words become "No Timex Left For You"

"Is this mic on?' well it maybe on but, it does not seem to be getting much use. Why is that?

1) the transitions from the old forum was too restrictive
2) no dominant members who discuss history or repairs
3) low site promotion from organizers \ administrators
4) old members who said they would continue did not

Well who really can say why. What I can say is my interest level changes much as others based on what life presents.

Now I'm off to far off lands to seek riches and adventures!

Best Wishes to All
