  • This forum is addictive

    Just yesterday my wife came into the office while I was in here, and said, "are you on that forum again, you're addicted !". I came home tonight and she said, "I got stuck in that bloody Stude forum today", I said 'What, you in the forum?" She told me I had left it up on the screen when I went out and she had scrolled through and read quite a few topics. Now, even though my wife loves our Studes, and her '73 Kombi, she really isn't a car person, (the Kombi ownership should give that away). She said it was great to read comments from ordinary people, just like us[:0]

    I was astounded

      I thought the forums were the therapy for the addition?

        At my house...others know that if I am on the forum, they don't have to worry about me irritating them. It is the poodle that hates the forum. Poodles are the attention hounds of the dog world. They hate to be ignored. Mine thinks that he is the "Real Laptop" and will almost demand that I place the laptop on the chair arm rather than "his" place On my lap. Then there are the times when I am really immersed in the forum and suddenly start feeling a ball being bounced off my feet. That is my notice to stop messing with the darn computer...ITS PLAY TIME!

          I think that's a Freudian slip, there

            My daughter's black Lab often comes in under my arm and lifts it off of the mouse. Sometimes she is a real nuisance if someone else doesn't distract her.
            The forum is addictive to Stude people. Since I started I have to check in every day to see what's new. We used to have to wait a whole month for Turning Wheels and that was barely a maintenance dose. The members with active clubs in their area were luckier.

                  This place (and other sites as well) are time sponges. Bob, I and others share your frustrations, but we have a good man on the problem.

                  I WILL SAY, one quirk I've noticed is that the first few topics I look at will pop right up - then a dead slow (or "timeout") will hit and then none of the threads I click on will come right up. Anybody else see that happening??? I ask because this MIGHT lend a clue as to the cause.

                  No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

                    I find I go to the forum several times during my day now that I am retired and got time to play. This is the best place I know of to learn about our Studebakers.I just enjoy reading what all of you have to say on the various topics.

                          Since I am currently unemployed and the weather is cold outside, I find that I spend too much time on here. As for the forum being slow at times, I often have a game of Solitaire open that I play until a page opens on the forum (it gives me something to do while I wait). As for Matt's wife browsing on here, let me just say that I like her pink hair.

                            I just finished reading this thread and clicked on another one. Waited and waited and waited then got this error message:

                            Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server error '80040e31'
                            Timeout expired
                            /topic.asp, line 1002

                            This waiting happens often but I rarely get the error message. Always figured it was my Internet provider causing it.

                              It must be addictive,
                              I usually get asked every couple of day's....What's new on the forum?

                              [)] How would I know......I'm not on it THAT much.[B)]

                              And then proceed to tell her about,..........
