This place is not like it used to be…August 19, 2014 2:57 pm at 2:57 pm #1106135
Dont forget Syag who only posts sporadically now.August 19, 2014 3:04 pm at 3:04 pm #1106136
streek – I have seen comments like this before and I’m just wondering if anyone thinks about how it must make some of the present posters feel. Perhaps saying those posters are missed would be kinder than ‘dissing’ those who are here. (nothing personal, just had this question)August 19, 2014 3:19 pm at 3:19 pm #1106137
You know me better than that Syag. I am in no way putting down the “here and now” posters.
If anything I think if I’d spend more time here like I did back then I would have plenty of new friends that I wouldn’t have time to miss the old timers 😉
To be or not to be, Rebyidd, PAA and plenty others that I don’t know by name yet are making this place wonderful!! I’m considering coming back full time as soon as things calm down in a few more weeks.
Come to think of it Syag, you’re rarely seen around these parts of town recently. What gives?August 19, 2014 3:25 pm at 3:25 pm #1106138
Old timers? Please. OURTorah joined just over a year ago. Eclipse joined 3 years ago. WIY was about 4 years ago.
There are posters who joined when the CR was first launched, in January 2007. My friend Feif Un was one of the original posters. Look back at some of the really old threads and you’ll see who the old timers were.
I miss Feif Un posting here. Luckily I can talk to him face to face!August 19, 2014 3:49 pm at 3:49 pm #1106139
lol Goq, funny your comment went up only after Syag’s even though you posted first…August 19, 2014 3:54 pm at 3:54 pm #1106140

for a tekufa there many of the things I said would get twisted around and it got frustrating. Plus I figured if I am not being helpful to anyone why try. Time passes tho and I try to pick my topics carefully. Glad to see you, btw.August 19, 2014 4:04 pm at 4:04 pm #1106141
DaMoshe – It’s a good thing you didn’t look at my profile cuz I’m definitely not an old timer either according to your definition. There are plenty of real old timers that I unfortunately never got the chance to know. I was just listing some posters that I know from my first months here that don’t post anymore.
On the same topic, its almost time for my birthday bash. Just put some champagne in the fridge… All is invited.
Syag – While I don’t post as much as I read nowadays, (I’m a real lurker) I miss your input!August 19, 2014 4:26 pm at 4:26 pm #1106142
Thanks for the shout out. But for the record, I predate two thirds of the list of “old-timers”.August 19, 2014 4:39 pm at 4:39 pm #1106143
PAA – lol, didn’t think to even check if I was being accurate. Where were you already for 21/2 years?!August 19, 2014 4:50 pm at 4:50 pm #1106144
It’s actually almost 3.5 years.August 19, 2014 5:30 pm at 5:30 pm #1106145
I’m talking about the break you took from the CR. Your first post in years was on the “Continuation of Discussion on R’ Slifkin and Weiss from Manchester Eiruv Thread”. That was 6 months ago. The last time you posted before then was roughly 3 years ago. So you haven’t been here for 21/2 years.
Unless you have more than one screen name…August 19, 2014 6:08 pm at 6:08 pm #1106146
quite the archivist streetgeek. “Kow what is aove you a seeing eye..and all your posts are written in a book.”August 19, 2014 7:19 pm at 7:19 pm #1106148
I see the mistake that you made: The list of threads in someone’s profile is listed in the order that that person posted on them, however if that person in the future posts again on one of those threads, it will move to the top of the list. Therefore if you see that the bottom of my list is from three years ago and suddenly it goes to six months ago it could be that in the interim I was active, and all the threads I posted on during that time I also posted on within the last six months. That being said it is true that I was very sporadic during that time (I think I only posted on the Techeiles thread for that entire period but lemaaseh I was here). The Slifkin thread is what drew me back into the main coffee room because it seemed to me that no one was adequately representing one side of the issue.August 19, 2014 7:59 pm at 7:59 pm #1106149
Aha, thanks for taking the time to explain that (you know you’re good at explaining, right?). Could you imagine, I would’ve never thought so deeply about your existence if not for this thread.
On a side note, I see that some still haven’t gotten my name straight…I guess that’s a sign that I’m not an authentic old timer yet.August 19, 2014 11:07 pm at 11:07 pm #1106150
“Aha, thanks for taking the time to explain that”
“you know you’re good at explaining, right?”
If I didn’t I guess I do now. Thanks for the compliment.
“Could you imagine, I would’ve never thought so deeply about your existence if not for this thread.”
I hope it was a productive use of your time.August 19, 2014 11:25 pm at 11:25 pm #1106151

I’m pretty old (or so my kids think).August 20, 2014 9:26 am at 9:26 am #1106154
You forgot ME!!! I’m pretty old…2 and 1/2 years…August 20, 2014 1:46 pm at 1:46 pm #1106155
There are some posters who joined right at the beginning who still post.
Charliehall joined on 1/2/07, and he still posts.
Joseph (the original one) joined on 9/20/06. He still posts under many different names.
yiddishemishpacha joined on 5/2/08. He last posted a month ago.
Those are just a few names I found by looking at a very old thread.August 20, 2014 2:31 pm at 2:31 pm #1106156
(whoops, I think they only want GOOD old timers)
LF – If you would get paid for every time you put yourself down, you’d be able to devote your whole life to the CR cuz you’d have no need for a job. You’re not just a GOOD old timer, you’re an AWESOME one!August 20, 2014 2:33 pm at 2:33 pm #1106157
I’m pretty old (or so my kids think).
oomis – Biologically you may be old, but you can’t fool us! You’re as young as the rest of us here 🙂August 20, 2014 2:36 pm at 2:36 pm #1106158
You forgot ME!!! I’m pretty old…2 and 1/2 years…
SHopping – Not in your wildest dreams, I don’t think there is any way I can forget you…We have too much of a history. You just weren’t included in my list cuz I’ve seen your name around here recently. The posters I listed were ones I haven’t see in a while…August 20, 2014 6:38 pm at 6:38 pm #1106159
And do you get paid for doling out compliments, praises by the dozen?
(actually you do, from Above, and to Him you’re not at all anonymous!)September 11, 2014 4:51 pm at 4:51 pm #1106160
frumnotyeshivish is still here, and he joined 7 years ago!September 15, 2014 2:07 am at 2:07 am #1106161

Speaking of old-timers, wasn’t That long ago, but does anyone else still remember aurora777?
This is the time of your to take pause and remember the tale (tall tale?) of her walking along the beach collecting seashells and watching the waves crashing on the shore (with her dog, was it?) when a group of adorable children invited her in to hear T’kiyas Shofar at their charming beachfront house.
Where has aurora777 gone?
Was she a real woman?
A real man?
A real troll?
A really good storyteller?
Or perhaps the greatest fraud ever perpetrated on the innocent, unsuspecting members of the CR?September 16, 2014 12:09 am at 12:09 am #1106166
In memory of old timers? Well, I heard Arnold Fine ran out of jokes.September 16, 2014 7:17 pm at 7:17 pm #1106167
golfer, I do not remember that particular story, but I recall she(?) was a cat-enthusiast so I would guess it was a cat…
I have wondered what happened to her. Seems like she just disappeared with no explanation! Maybe she found out for certain that she was Jewish and is working on coming back “home”? I hope her mother is doing well and recovering.
aurora, wherever you are, and whoever you are, we wish you a happy sweet new year filled with health and happiness! Please come back and let us know how things are going…
All the best!September 16, 2014 7:44 pm at 7:44 pm #1106168
Sometimes I like to think of myself as an old-timer even though i’m really not that old.September 16, 2014 8:42 pm at 8:42 pm #1106169
ahhh, them good ol’ days…

In memory of old timers? Well, I heard Arnold Fine ran out of jokes.
And by that, do you mean “was niftar“?
In the year, tuf-shin-lamed-tes
There’ll be a daily paper called the Jewish Press
For fifty dollars you can check it out, folks
To see if Arnold Fine has run out of jokes (whoa-oo-whoa)September 22, 2014 4:34 am at 4:34 am #1106176
So fun imnconsidered an old timer- thanks streek 😉 hope life is amazing by you!September 23, 2014 12:35 am at 12:35 am #1106177
<–old-ish .. I lurked for quite a while before I ever posted.
hi ‘old-timers’! 🙂September 23, 2014 12:54 pm at 12:54 pm #1106178
Oops, that should’ve been Taf-taf-lamed-tes!
Taf-shin-lamed-tes was 34 years ago.
That really is an old-timers’ song, though – I just remembered that this year was Taf-shin-ayin-gimmel! Boro Park survived (of course).
(Fortunately for him, there were no predictions in the song for this year. When 5784 rolls around, watch the esrog prices! But the prediction for 5796 is simply impossible [a shteeble every 15 feet].)August 12, 2015 9:46 pm at 9:46 pm #1106179

PBA, not as prolific nor as pertinent as he used to be. Only a few posts above; Randomex/Comink-X? Please? And maybe I missed him, but I haven’t seen a minute amphibian lurking around recently.
I say this as a very new-timer.August 13, 2015 4:18 pm at 4:18 pm #1106183
