RC90... I wanted to say I missed you too but I couldnt bring myself to type it. Deep down I hold a lot of contempt in my heart for whatever you did to Mototrush... I will forever... Until I die!
Time to fess up, Porn-boy 90
What happened to Motorush.....did you just mis-place it?
What tha dillyo?
Whatever I did to MR? Nah mang, I think you have your cables crossed or you have been smoking too much ganja
I, for one, am glad that a few of you are as pissed off as I am about this but I am sorry that it has taken this long for an explanation. I just know that I have mourned this enough and it is time to move on! I don't have access to the box or the member's e-mails. This is going to be long winded and you know me and my English grammar and vocabulary so don't you go crying home to Mommy after this. I am going to try as hard as possible to explain this in my own little words.
Truth be told, I had very little to do with the allege demise of MR, at least, that I know off. Many of you may think that just because I was an ADMIN over at MR, I had my hand on all the buttons when in reality I had no pull whatsoever; No more than say all the Moderators did. Yes, I was an admin cuz I know Gabriel from a long time and because he asked me to help him out back in the days when the CBR929 & the RC51 were just hot rumors and because I live in the same city that he does
but it was his baby and I can't take that away from him.
Yes, I was able to whisper on his ear (so to speak) as to what direction we should go or what forums we should open because I was more accessible to you guys than he was and all the complaint e-mails would come to me (although, all the prop e-mails would go to him. That was JUST WRONG! LOL).
Now, don't you go all jump on the Hate-o-rade wagon and try to lynch Gabriel because I don't particularly believe that he's at all happy that MR is down. Due to some unforeseen situation MR is where it is and I can only imagine the pain Gabriel is feeling because of it.
This is what I know so far...
Gabriel has had the fortune to have landed a nice cushy job for him but he's has to go out of town more days than what he spends in town so, due to this fact, he wasn't available most of the crucial times or when we needed him the most. As far as I have been told by him, the Cable Company he was using was bought by Comcast (he was out of town when this happened) and it just so happened that this took place right after the last hurricane so we were all under the impression that the power was down in his neck of the wood.
When I was able to get a hold of him, he said that Comcast had no recollection of him (MR) ever having an account with the previous Cable Co. and he was trying to get that taken care off but he had to go out of town yet again. Next time I got a hold of him (2 or 3 weeks had past), he said that Comcast wanted nothing to do with him or wasn't ready to give him the same account he had with that other Co. (My speculation is that Comcast wanted Gabriel to buy a bigger package or something similar to that and he wasn't ready to take it... again, this is just my speculation!!!).
Nobody was more down than I was because of what was happening as I have come to see MR as a Dad looks upon his kid and I felt lost w/o it (Yes, I am man enough to say and accept this and so be it!) and also because I saw it as my own private sand box with a whole bunch of close friends and everybody knows that is a tough feeling to loose.
I asked Gabriel if I could do something to help, and even told him that I thought bringing the Box to my office would be a good idea since I would be able to flick the reset button on the box whenever it went down on account of Motohead vomiting all over it but he said that he didn't think I had enough bandwidth for me to be able to hold us over (to which I nagged like a scorned woman) and he said that it could be possible if I had an Static IP. I called my ISP and they said I could have it in a jiffy and that all I need it was to say when. Again, it took me a few days (possible a week or so) to get a hold of Gabriel to give him the good news. He said fine but your 258kbps upload speed will be to slow for the box, even though I have a 3Mb download speed (that blew right over me but I pretended I understood what he was saying cuz I wanted to have MR up at any cost). We're talking almost Xmas Holidays here.
Again I got a hold of him (around the beginning of January) and he said that he was in the brink of finding a better house for the box with another of his friends in the business and faster speeds but he wasn't going to be ready for a week or two.
By this time, a few of the old MR members that I still keep in contact had told me about Kevin's site and I came to lurk a bit and got hooked almost immediately when I saw the majority of you guys here but I didn't know what to do (WOW, what a freaking Mexican Soap Box this is... Damn!!!). I knew that Kevin had a few words with Gabriel and didn't know how he was going to react to see me here even though whatever transpired between him and Gabe had nothing to do with me but, the more I came to lurk the more I wanted to reply to some of your dumb posts, jokes, comments and replies so I told myself that if MR wasn't up towards the end of the month I was going to Join in and hoped that Kevin wouldn't kick me out on my first post.
Again, I apologize to Kevin for bringing this up here but I am sure he figured that some of you guys deserve an explanation just as much as I thought you did and even though I only know bits and pieces of the whole ball of wax, this is all I can offer you. If it was up to me, I would love to have both sites open cuz to me, it only represents more places to have fun.
I could go on for a few more hours writing this but I am only going to make myself and you nauseas (sp?) and probably loose my train of thoughts but believe me when I tell you that I have tried my best to surmise this as much as possible so I have maybe left a whole bunch of other things I wanted to say out.
Check with you guys tomorrow and I hope that the contempt a few guys have towards me be forgiven, because, even though I had nothing or little to do with it, it does hurt me to think that some of you guys are mad or upset at me because of it.
Daytona is around the corner; please don't let me be the only one listen to Moto & Bob Frazer talk about politics!!! The first round's on me!
Edit: NO, I didn't even bother to check for spelling or grammar so if you don't understand something, you can either ask me later or... sue me
[b]P.S.: Kevin, we have to talk about this You have included 11 images in your message. You are limited to using 4 images so please go back and correct the problem and then continue again.
