Hey there -

After a year's absence, I'm back. Just popping in to say hi. What happened to the chatroom?

Wow, this site has grown remarkably over the past year! I'll never catch up with all the posts. As for me, I just haven't been much of an on-line guy since my home computer crashed last year. I recently picked up a Mac G4 for a swell price so I'M BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACK!

I've been trying to get through all the new stuff I've missed out on over the past year and it's dang near impossible. Amazing how the site has grown, and the community as well!

Anyone know what ever happened to the Discovery CHannel's documentary idea for the Messie discovery a couple years back? I thought they were going to do a big show on that...haven't heard a word on it.

Ja - the doco aired everywhere but the States. Bit of a hoot (not the doco - the fact it didn't air in the US of A). The problem was it was 2 hours long and all others in the series were 1 hour - it became a programming nightmare.

Aw, krunk. Thanks for the info, Steve. Anyone know where I might be able to aquire a copy of the documentary? NTSC format? I checked the Discovery Channel's site and, naturally, they're not offering it for sale.

Just wondering. I've been waiting for what seems like forever to see this thing. Any possibility of it being available for purchase in NZ? My best friend and his wife are honeymooning there as I type this...

Thanks,
Octomatt :bonk:

Hello all,

Still lurking every now and again. Just popping in over lunch to TRY (hahahahaha!) and catch up on things here at Tonmo. I need to clone myself just so I can keep up with all the goings on. (Love the squidcam, Steve!)

Still looking for anyone with a DVD or VHS copy of the Discovery documentary on the Messie...did they ever release the alleged footage of it's capture? Shows you how up on things I am...

Later! :mrgreen:

Hey OctoMatt!

You and your hit-and-runs. I miss your green octo avatar, where'd he go?

Stop being such a stranger! :razz:

Well Tony, my old avatar is back...just for you. I can't make it to TonmoCon this year, but hopefully it will be a recurring event! Very exciting! By the by, I'm still looking for anyone who has a copy (VHS or DVD) of the Discovery Doc on Messie. Anyone with the ability to make a copy can get ahold of me at octoman@comcast.net. I'll pay! I'll pay!

Still lurking!
OctoMatt
