Title: It has been so long....
Post by: Syrupoftears on June 08, 2013, 08:20:36 PM
I have been away from this message board on and off for about 6 years.  It is good to be back.  I hope all is well with all of you.

It's been pretty quiet, Syrup.  I'm not sure what happened.

I'm not sure what happened.

Really? It was only because I sort of accidentally followed your recent Piano Van post through a "back door" into here that *I* finally figured out what happened!

Long story short: If you're on the main www.hihowareyou.com (http://www.hihowareyou.com) page and you click on forum, it sends you to http://www.hihowareyou.com/messageboards (http://www.hihowareyou.com/messageboards) aka the "Server Error: 404 (Not Found)" page.

In actuality, we are at http://www.hihowareyou.com/messageboard (http://www.hihowareyou.com/messageboard) <---(NO "S"!) Therefore, every single fan who has tried to access the forum via the main page in the last year or so has failed to do so. Not exactly conducive to increasing the virtual population of the board, eh?

Anyhow, after you "led" me here, I sent Dick Johnston a message similar to the one you are reading. So far, it appears that any effort to make that "S" scar go is proceeding at a snail's pace. I need to contact him again about something pretty quick, so I'll ask what's the plan.

Yes, really.  I've had the page bookmarked forever and miss some of the old posters. Whining "accidental" followers are something I don't miss...

hi! how are you all?

Okay.

So, how did YOU find your way here?

Best plan I can come up with is, unless and until the link is fixed, for those who know how to get here to contact any ex-regulars whose actual email addressses you know, and tell them it's "http://www.hihowareyou.com/messageboard" without the "s'".

And then they can tell two friends, and THEY can tell two friends, and so on, and so on...

(I have a Daniel-related "crowd-funding" project due to go "live" soon, so believe me, I want to be able to contact as many Dan-fans as I can, man!)

I can think of three easy ways to get here.

1) Some people have it bookmarked. The URL hasn't changed.

2) The two working links on the front page of rejectedunknown.com

3) When you enter "Daniel Johnston message board" on google it's the very first result!

So let's bring this place back to life.  Anyone else excited that the long awaited Danny and the Nightmares album Death of Satan is about to be released?

My feeling would be "bittersweet" on that one.

Who's putting it out?
