Subject: A skiffler's farewell to his Mudcat
From: GUEST,Roger the skiffler
Date: 07 Nov 01 - 05:28 AM

Well, maybe au revoir not farewell, and not just yet.
I'm not miffed with flamers or trolls but have finally succumbed to the lure of early(-ish) retirement and as I will be busy wiping files and clearing my desk between now and Xmas I may forget to say "Tara" when I finally go. I've been posting less recently to try to wean myself off. Going online at home is not one of our priorities and our local public library only has one internet terminal, heavily used, so it may be some time before I use the Mudcat again.
I'd like to thank lots of people, but no names,( except Max, of course), in case I forget someone. I'm only sorry my limited (non-existent!)musical knowledge has meant I've not been able to contribute as much as I have gained.
Thanks to all who have put up with my old jokes, amused me with theirs, amazed me with their creative writing and songwriting skills, who've answered my naïve questions and found me lyrics, have deciphered poor recordings for me and introduced me to new artists, even sent me recordings.
My CD shelves are groaning . My lyrics folders are bulging, I only have to learn them all (and learn to sing in tune!). Now I'll have the time if not the skill! I don't think I could master the sarrusaphone so I'll look out for a washboard!
I'll still be posting a bit, I expect, and trying to read at least some of the posts most days until I go, but someone else will have to empty the bedpans at the Neil Young Center for the Terminally Screwed from now on.
Thanks as well to all I "met" at the Tavern and the Center.
A few of you have my real name and address, feel free to contact me if you're ever in my area.
RtS

for what it's worth, I use uk2.net as a dial-up ISP. You only pay for the call and even without keeping a check on my usage I notched-up less then 32 quid per 1/4 cf 112+ per month on most. BT have the thing sewn-up (don't get cable & can't use the cheapo telco's on this number) so I have to put uk2.net on friends & family and so my 32 becomes -10% +17% but I could make it my really really really best friend. Just call me a cheapskate but I could make it a lot cheaper by saving all interesting threads first. Remeber the 5p min call charge. I usually grab e-mails and log-on to Mudcat and occasionally save long threads and peruse off-line. You do get to read the comments fully but the latency can deaden the jokes - but yours will shine through anyway, I am sure. Having said that my e-mail is handled via the same telephone number but with re-directs even that can be re-arranged.

Does this help?

Thanks for the advice, I'm sure we will go online at home eventually but Herself has a list of house and garden jobs to be done to stop me watching daytime tv with the sound off listening to my music, singing along and reading a book at the same time with a glass of something to hand- which is her idea of how I'll end up!

I'd love to make some joke here Skiff, but in all seriousness I'm just a bit teary at the moment. I mean I know you're not dying or something, but I will well and truly miss all that you have contributed....and you have. Opinions and all are fine but you have always had that particular ability to ask the perfect question which extends and clarifies some subject where we are rambling away without addressing the subject. I will miss that as it is a rare skill and I have admired your ability.

So as the time rolls around, please DO stay in touch and throw up the occasional posting wherever you can. Maybe you will sometime opt for a home setup......hope so, because I for one (and many others I'm sure)will miss you.

Guess I have to find a new administrator/bedpan jockey for the Center huh? Damn.......I really hate this.

It is that simple. And that complex. You are part of the fabric of the joint. Please email me your contact info at mlane@accn.org. At some point I am travelling to your neck of the woods and I want to meet you.

No, Spaw, I won't take the bedpan job. My duties as Chief Layabout preclude me taking on any additional duties.

RTS, all UK public libraries have to be wired up to the People's Network by the end of 2002, so it may be that your local branch library is going to radically improve it's IT facilities in the next 12 months. They should provide bookable and instant access terminals unless it's a very small branch.

Would hate to lose you.

But Hey! ease into that retirement with a bit of hassle now and again - on your terms.
I am happytapping at the library right now (call me a cheapskate) - v local branch & free but not many cyberpaws so max time, and while I "rest" between jobs I can pick my happytapping hour.

Well, I hope I'm right and you can't beat the habit. You'll probably find there's a slot you could book regularly at the library - the great thing with retirement is that you've got more flexibility in that kind of thing. In between the telly and the drink and the music. And the jobs.

As for at home - well, it depends where you live, but if you live in lots of places, NTL do a pretty good deal with a phone line and a permanent lowlevel broadband connection with the modem thrown in for about £15 a month. That means no internet connection charges at all.

Rememembr, if you don't have a computer and the internet, how are you going to be able to get advice on all these jobs that need to be done around the place, and up to date info on health issues and all that stuff? The fact that it would also give you the Mudcat is of course neither here nor there...

Ironically we're setting ma-in-law up as a silver surfer at the moment. Our nephews sprung for her 'puter and we chipped in with a box of disks (cheapskates!)and I'm collecting the relevant URLs for her various interests like Latin and Archaeology.
We'll probably wait until we upgrade our home PC here at DunLendin' and then run a line up to the "study" (spare bedroom full of books). I expect we'll do it by this time next year as Herself thinks it'll keep me out of mischief once all the jobs are done! Trouble is, Herself is secretary of the local church PCC so I'd probably have less chance of getting on our 'puter than I would down the library as she's always doing minutes! Good job she's still working, I'll have the daytime to type up my lyrics.
Early next month I'll post my work e-mail,so anyone who would like me to have theirs can then send it and I can always keep in touch via Her work e-mail in case of emergencies (like Stoney Stratford being cancelled!).
We've done some research on ISPs already but thanks for all advice. When we do get online it'll be nice not being a GUEST!

Incidentally you might find macaroni cheese tastes better with a bit of Marmite, spaw.

"Herself is secretary of the local church PCC " - get WYSIWYG on the job and I reckon the Missus will pretty soon realise that an internet connection is an essential for a secretary of a local church PCC.

Well, says he making sure this thread reaches 50,I'm overwhelmed by all your kind thoughts. (blushes, casts eyes down like Princess Di, scuffs toe in dust in embarassment)It only confirms my belief that mudcatters are a lovely bunch (strange, I grant you, but a lovely bunch).
'Spaw, I was pleased to see Matt R posting again, he's still working his way though College, I'm sure he'd jump at a postition at the NYCFTTS, even if he has to start at the "bottom". Plus, as he's aritistic he could do something with those murals Cletus put up in the rec room. Add some large figleafs or something, you know the cleaning ladies are always complaining about them.
RtS (one of my cubicle mates is already trying to get my spot by the window, and the ink is barely dry on the contract.)

RtS,

Have a happy, healthy (and very long) retirement and don't be a stranger (strange yes, a stranger, no), you're always welcome here.

Walrus

Ray's Record Shop? Birmingham, perchance? If you can get to Ray's, you can get to a public library that's got thousands of terminals. Well more than one, anyway.

Take care.

Rog, old mate, I shall be ever so disappointed if you can't make it to Stony. I'm afraid I can't entice you by wearing that shirt, 'cos it died a while back (it hadn't been well for some time), but I've still got the hat. And the guitar. And Sue is dying to meet you, 'cos she doesn't believe anything I've told her about you. Ah well, que sera, ser, as Auntie Doris says.

Steve

And if you ever get back to this thread, have you ever heard of a band called "Kick'n'Rush? Well known around East Midlands - I've just discovered that someone related to a friend of mine is in the line-up.
