Dang it...I wish we could get to the Data still it was filled with copy paste articles that are gone now....Too Bad'''

and some real historic threads...full of second by second as it happened threads....


I'm glad it was there for me when I decided to join a forum back 2011...

it was real fun and Hope DD wrestles the keys away and opens it up someday...not looking promising...

But having fun here...and Like ION when I need something new there seems to be a spot for me

Thanks to FRINGE...for having me....Glad to be here....

I really grieve the loss of threads there.  

You all helped me through the toughest year of my life when I lost my son.  candle
I cannot begin to tell you what a comfort you were to me.  
Also, in that my son had been a member there, ... Well, just knowing I could go back to many threads and see posts he made ~ well, now I can't do that anymore.  

But of course the threads that Wingsprint is mentioning, the historic threads, and the research that went into so many posts.  I suppose they are gone forever.  
I wonder how long they keep all the posts from a forum, "in case it might be resurrected", before they are deleted?

I'm so sorry @Aquarius , I didn't know.

Hugs

Thanks, Lucy. Hugs

It was very hard to say goodbye to ION and there are folks from there I am missing very much.  I am so glad Terpentin has showed up here!  I am still missing Fibonacci Guy and a few others who have yet to show up.  I sure hope they all make the journey.

And I'm glad you came to Fringe, SouthernBelle. Hugs

I too was so happy to see @Terpentin show up here the other day !!
Fibonacci Guy knows we are here, and maybe he will show up one day.
He is good friends with @PRIME , so he knows where to find us.
PRIME has been here, but just occasionally.

@ID Rick has posted here a few times, but not as often as we'd like him to.
Roxi knows where we are, but she gave up forum life a year or so ago. Maybe one day we will see her again.
I miss Roxi !!
Dough Dude also knows where we are, but I don't think he has time for forums right now. Too busy with his business, which of course is a good thing in real life, but I do miss him.

There are a number of IONites here on TF.  Some have been for awhile and some (such as myself) arrived just before ION went down.  We have @Aquarius to thank for that: For letting us know about TF.  Thanks, Aquarius.  Heartflowers

So, for those who simply want to say hello to fellow IONites or remember ION, then this is the thread for you.

I am grateful to each of you for making ION what it was and for the time I shared with many of you over there.
Cheers  Heartflowers [Image: 7NSvZzc.gif]

ION always treated me like family when I was a refugee.

I luuuurve every single one of them.

Saddle up Ionians!! You are most welcome here!!

Think for yourself

Thanks to dear Aquarius, I decided to look into the-fringe and liked it. I was made welcome very cordially here. I don't post much, but lurk about and read most threads. The-Fringe is another really nice forum with polite and friendly people making intelligent posts, and much larger than ION ever was. I do not see quite the same emphasis on research here as was often true of ION. By making a point of never watching TV, I get much of my news of current events here. I find I am spending even more time of late on the Sniper's Hide forum answering ballistics questions on their Extreme Long Range (ELR) rifle thread. Some there are planning to test my larger caliber rifle bullets at a target distance of 2 miles this summer. I expect these new copper bullets to remain supersonic to 3520 yards, which would probably be a first.

FG is currently napping in front of his ham radio station here in my office. ION would not accept his P/W for its last several months. Roxi just worked so hard that she burned out for a while. I, too, expect her here someday. Nice to hear from so many old friends from ION here.

Thanks for saying Hi and adding your post, Prime. Hugs
Please tell FG Hello from me, and I hope he is doing well !!

I'm sure there are many here who would enjoy a Thread about your rifle bullets, etc.
If you start such a thread, there will be many who appreciate your expertise in that area.
