Well thats that. Approximately 10hrs of homework today. I am impressed with myself for sticking with it and slightly annoyed at myself that I didn’t pull my weight a bit sooner – I think Miss Laura Procrastinator is wearing off on me. It is done. I am to say the least, slightly relieved.

Gush has now closed.

For the sake of record I joined on September the 9th, 2002 at 6:51pm.
After three and a bit years, my post count (which is irrelevant!) totalled 4605, I gave up spamming years ago.
My average posts per day was 3.46

And the very first PM I ever got 😛

Hey bee,
cute name.
Welcome to Gush. I think you’ll enjoy this site. Especially the gushboards, also known as gush forums. Hope to hear from you in the future.

I don’t know what happened to Mixie, but he sure was right that I enjoyed it. Gush has warped and changed over the years, might be something to do with me having become a mod 😉 The change to the new boards has been a long time coming and I am more glad that something is finally happening. Paul or someone shall have archived records of the old stuff, but to be honest the new start is what we need to make opportunity of, I’d rather not go digging in the old.

I am, to be honest, worn down and demotivated about what used to be a fun and exciting challenge (modding) and am thankful we can clean out the cobwebs of spam and many years of interesting, ugly and fantastic history. I do not know how long I will continue with gush but I intend to see it settle on to it’s new feet and perhaps just maybe the inspiration will catch hold again.

Whatever the case. If it has done nothing than to serve as a meeting point of some people who have now become close friends, then it has served it’s purpose well. Modding has taught me more than the boards ever did. People have challenged me more than the orange and grey and God truly has used the place mightily.

A massive very gush Boost to the following people for the challenges (good and bad) you’ve provided even if I’m still trying to get over them:

Thirsty Guy
Sammy Airways
Jezika Rae

I’m sure there are many more and many more who have been valued members and often friends.

boost to the mods team, we got there!

and one last boost to Age Rowse, you started something God started first, and it was good.

Adios to sentimentality, bring on the new stuff please!


It’s been a very long day. The last ten minutes before I head home (I’m at uni) is at least accompanied by some coffee and the friendly (well warm) atmosphere of the corner cafe. Thus concludes 6 hrs straight of finishing my SIT assignment.

Yes it was painful. Dredging up references was the most time consuming and I’m still probably a few short. It is done however, and I think the tutor will have to live with it because I don’t want to touch it again. At least, or as far as my understanding goes, I have understood what was being asked. Several others I spoke to have partially misinterpreted or totally misconstrue what we’re meant to be on about. I did attempt to set them straight but likewise they are “over it” and shall not be changing things any time soon.

Home and to the refining of the 4 or 5 or so other assignments due tomorrow.

What a long week. But to think, by tomorrow night it’ll all be over! At least until the next round hits.
