Falling on Floor Laughing Oasis Forums

Are they down? I get an "account suspended" page. As far as I know I'm in good standing there. Will one of the IW's that also frequent the Oasis look into this? Thank you.

It appears that it's the Oasis Forums account that has been suspended.

Ironworks Forum Re: Oasis Forums

Sadly, The Oasis really died about a year and half ago (or was it two years)...I forget which. It is a long story and I won't damage any reputations by talking about it.

Cloudy and Nacht decided that it was not worth the money to keep the site active so they decided to let it expire, according to the note that Noty got the other day. I can't blame them--money is a vital necessity.

It was what it was and I was glad to be part of it. All good things must come to and end, though, and when it does all we can do is walk away then get over it.
Everything may be explained by a conspiracy theory. All conspiracy theories are true.

Sorry gang, I've been offline the last few days. Messed up cable box or some such. anyway, Azred has the gist of it. The site is off for now- we let the server go but kept the domain. We may be able to bring it back and update at some point, but btwn my husband's job hunting and lack of funds and time on our part and low usage, we decided to let the server go for now.

Thank you Elif. My husband is still out there looking. He's talked with a few other guys who were laid off by the last place he worked and they're still looking too, although one is delivering pizzas part time.... as he pointed out, not the work he he usually does (computer programs and hardware) but he's feeding his family and paying his rent... it is indeed a tough time!

Cloudy, he might fit in with my company at Vivint. I love my job and all the perks we get. I get tips from customers, the work is easy, I can go on and on about how great it is. With my computer background I fit right in with being technically-minded. It's all low voltage stuff and I've never had an accident or in danger in any way. I am a Lead Tech so maybe if I get in touch with the Regional in NY, he'd give a closer look to his resume than whatever Joe off the street. My company hires all kinds of backgrounds: former police, former military, computer background, cable background, customer service background...remember, I was working at a Credit Union before I got this job and less than one year later I was in charge of five guys. Our company is thriving. Look us up. We won awards last year for our Home Automation package deal, Customer Service awards, and so many other things I could brag about.
