Title: Freedom For Fred!
Post by: Alan on July 02, 2012, 11:26:01 AM
Fred's account has been changed and now he is locked out of the Forum and cannot post....

I hope this is not another 'crime' to add to TV's list!

Can someone help!

I think Rockula has had a similar problem.

Who will make us laugh now?

Bring back Fred!

Fred's account has been changed and now he is locked out of the Forum and cannot post....

I asked him twice via email if he still has had problems - no reply. I tried to sort it Saturday afternoon already.
And yes, it was my fault, as I'd messed around with "membergroups", sorry sorry sorry.  :-[

Btw, what exactly has been "changed" in his account? I can see no difference.

P.S.: Tell him to try again! I changed something in the ban list, hope it helps.

Still waiting to hear back from anyone.
Fred's profile says he was "Last Active:  June 30, 2012, 03:42:07 PM ", which was around the time I'd emailed him.
Not heard from him since then. If he can't even send email, it sounds like he's not online at all today?  ???

Looks like you & I are the only ones here Uli.  :o

Maybe Fred's joined Facebook.......








But it's unlikely. :)

No, Rockula, slaughterboy (& Tj & Alan) seem to be around.  ;)

Hasn't anyone heard anything from Fred? To me it seems he's offline for a few days?
If he gets back to me via email telling it still does not work, I guess I'll have to ask Klaus for assistance.  :o

Still no sign of Fred. I hope he is ok.  ???

Post by: Uli on July 06, 2012, 09:26:53 AM
Still no email. Which to me indicates he's not online at all or the problem is with his computer, browser, ...
(I'd need some info about his problem: can he not log in at all or can he not post?)

I met one of Fred's friends last night. Does that help?

Does anyone have one of those old fashioned telephone thingies and Fred's number?
Title: Re: Freedom For Fred!
Post by: claret999 on July 07, 2012, 05:41:03 PM
Hell , he phoned me a few weeks ago and I forgot to save his number, Alan has it and I`m sure he will have contacted him anyway
Title: Re: Freedom For Fred!

Never assume Claret. ;)

I'll give Freed Fred a call now.
Title: Re: Freedom For Fred!
Post by: Tj on July 09, 2012, 09:58:24 AM
Just spoken to Fred.

Unfortunately I got him out of the shower so we didn't talk long.

I sent our greetings and best wishes.

He's looking forward to seeing we TUTS at Rebellion and possibly Earthbound.

Thanks Tj! Did he mention if he can't log in here or anything?
Title: Re: Freedom For Fred!
Post by: Tj on July 09, 2012, 07:15:36 PM
He didn't mention it Uli and I didn't want to keep him talking as he was very, very wet.

Spoke to Fred saturday and had e mail conversation yesterday so it seems to be getting onto the forum that was/is the problem still. I thought he might have been washed away by the weather rather than the shower TJ got him out of but apparently he is still afloat. Good to see you again Friday TJ!

Good to see you again too.

Have you spoken to Fred recently Alan? Sorry I missed your call.

I did what I can do. Without any hint from Fred about which error seems to block him, I can't do much.
Will send message to Klaus, hope he can help.

Klaus here,
no problem with the account.
Can't help from this side of the internet.
Sorry!

Gosh! Klaus is TAFKAK AND Lord Pork Pie of Melton!!!!

I always thought The Lord was Fred! :-\

I'm so :-[

Ah well, thanks for trying!
And I'd been sitting here, worried that it was all my fault...  ::)

Still hoping Fred can find a way to get back online!  :)

These Four Agreements always help me through tricky times Uli...


Be True. Be impeccable with your word. Speak with love and integrity.

Be Free. Don't take things personally. People do what they do because of them not because of you.

Seek Truth. Ask questions to find the real truth. Our mind often makes false assumptions.

Simply Shine. When you have done your best then you free yourself from guilt. 



...At the moment you are seeking the real truth. This is good.

The second agreement might prove helpfull.
Title: Re: Freedom For Fred!
Post by: Uli on July 14, 2012, 01:50:56 PM
Yeah, that's nice Tj, but in this case it could've been my fault, as I was messing with things I shouldn't have been messing...  :-[
(Seek Truth: I admit it if it's my fault...)
So I was kinda glad to hear it's not all down to me - but also not to Fred, as it seems to be his computer (or firewall or whatever).
Hope he'll be back soon!  8)

No worries, it's all alright now.  :)
Title: Re: Freedom For Fred!
Post by: Tj on July 14, 2012, 02:09:08 PM
Fair point Uli.

This agreement helps cut down the number of times is is our fault...

Be True. Be impeccable with your word (and actions). Speak (and act) with love and integrity.

Hope that helps. :)

I've had three people in three days not turn up for meetings, so I've really been practicing the Four Agreements this week. :-\ ;)

Especially 'Be Free' by not taking things personally. ;D
