    It kept either "going down for maintenance" or just throwing out the messages in threads in random order. People complained, most with humor but some perhaps inappropriately, and the paper decided to just close the joint. It has been inevitable for years. They haven't upgraded software in a decade or so and the paper is circling the drain so there was little doubt they would fix the problem. They don't have money for a newspaper staff much less an IT department and computer software.

      There has been a few times when I have been overjoyed when a period showed up.

      Hello Everyone,

      I have lurked on GSMB ever since Ron Zook was at the helm. I am entering my sophomore year at UF, studying Chemical Engineering. I heard about this place on Gator Country's thread about the closing of GSMB. I am excited to finally join the conversation!
      :chomp:Go Gators!!

      Yeah, but you can quote yourself and say +1, the epitome of Wobbling.

      I might be the only other one that's been around since Zook? On GSMB I mean. That's a damn good question too. I think I'll make a new thread in the Lounge and see if people will step up and tell just how long they've been with us.

      Sid... JUST KIDDING! I would have to say my favorite poster is Ox, mostly because of the podcasts. I appreciate Law's sarcasm, but I will definitely miss Zach's recruiting posts.

      Not to offend anyone, but cover2 always seems to bring it.
