    Default Forums will be down for ten days

    Hey there and hello, friends.

    I hope Donna and Tigs will forgive me posting moderating stuff on their fine board, but I want members to know that the site still has server problems and Grant is going to have to take the forums down for ten days beginning tomorrow, 20 June. The site will be up again 1 July.

    I'm very sorry about this, as I love this site as much as the members of this very vibrant board do, but I want everyone to be aware of the coming silence.

    Here's Grant's original thread about the subject: http://community.basenotes.net/showthread.php?t=197680

    And if you're interested, here's a thread I started on the Male Fragrances Discussion board: http://community.basenotes.net/showthread.php?t=197705

    I hope you're all well and that ten days--a mere speck of time--isn't too long for all of us who think with our noses.
    Thanks, and see you all very soon.

    Damn! I was just jumping up and down about it being back! Well, I suppose I can work on my addiction problem while it's away again. Poo!

    I will really miss the forums but perhaps it would be O.K for me to post some reviews for the directory in the meantime?

    Yeah, same here! Poo, blast, phooey, drat, and double drat.

    Thanks for all the kind words, you great gang you.

    I look at it this way, a little. Because of this problem I got to use one of my favorite lines ever and in this very thread: "A mere speck of time." I just love those words and the thought behind them. Unfortunately, another line I like to use, which Basenotes doesn't give avenue to, is "Adventure on the high seas."

    I could give all those normal platitudes about how it's going to be better when it comes back and all that, but really, we all know it's a poo moment don't we?

    Thanks everyone, and I'll really enjoy seeing you all at the end.

    Ah rats. I see a week and a half of intensive cooking and gardening in my future.

    Best of luck with it all to Grant, and thanks for your hard work - really looking forward to the forums coming back again!

    I wish I could do something nice to take my mind off it but I'm mostly on at work! :P

    The other lovely ladies and gents on the board have already expressed it better than I can at the moment... No doubt, 10 days of down time is sad and frustrating, but the benefits of Basenotes still make it worth the wait!!!

    ::sigh::

    I've been trying to comfort myself that these last few weeks I've been barely treading water with end-of-school-year madness with my kids, and hence have had no real time to relax here on my online home; still, I suppose I can use the 10 days to do some more testing, and maybe write some notes for later posting or reviews!

    Hang in there everyone! Grant, take heart!

    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    I'll be trying to whip my wardrobe into order, get an organized swap list together and start getting ready for the green sniff and speak that should be the Saturday after we get back.

    I had rather thought that I had left the Vetiver wearing to himself, but I've found there is at least a touch in these.

    Le Baiser du Dragon
    Anat Fritz
    Habanita
    Cabochard
    Ma Griffe
    Timbuktu
    Violetta di Parma
    Caron Violette Precieuse
    Bois des Iles
    Diorella
    Jicky
    Eau des Merveilles
    Arpege
    OJ Osmanthus
    Vent Vert
    Murasaki
    Infini

    I expect and hope that the Moondeva Diva will chime in with a way more complete array. These are just matches from my test/want to test list.

    10 days!? I'll finally dig myself out from under all this paperwork I've been back-logging.
    I hope you all have a great couple of weeks, and I'll see you when we're back on line! :wave:

    HAPPY SNIFFING!

    What time are we dropping, anyone know?
    (And am now keeping records of my daily scents so I'll be able to come up with a proper set of June stats! So far, Gardenia Musk and Tabac Blond are tops with Rose Angel quite surprisingly high!)
