Well Jedi Soul, I'm glad it's not the hacker. I hope to talk to you soon.
Well, I should be doing homework right now, but I'm not.

time for me to bow out my friends...

for various reasons I've decided to leave these forums - I have passed over control of the website, chatroom, Slacker Council etc. to RedHot5 - he also now has the swmcmmj@hotmail.com address...

if you ever want to contact me, although I can't imagine you ever would my address is dapper_bloke@hotmail.com

I've had a lot of fun - thank you all...


dapper_bloke will return in "The Slacker Who Loved Me"...

Morning all.

It is a sad day indeed. I received e-mail from dapper confirming what you have read. He didn't go into detail about why, but there must be some good reasons. We'll all miss him I'm sure. Today should be a tribute to dapper. If anybody has funny anecdotes or anything to share about him I would love to hear it.

RedHot5 raises his glass

TO DAPPER_BLOKE!

You're a great slacker dapper_bloke, you will be missed. Please return soon. Thanks again for the website and the chat room. This is a sad day for sure.

Red Hot5 will do a great job so we are in good hands. Hey, RedHot, I will be sending you some pics for the website as soon as I get my computer at home running again. It is still mocking me. Stoopid microsoft.

Slack on and slack once more for dapper.

Oh my God, this totally sucks!

My tribute to dapper:

(to the tune of New Order's True Faith)

First Verse:
I feel so depressed this morning
My Slack mate dapper's gone away
He ditched his website and he's left us
This is a Slacker's darkest day
I do care 'cos he's not there
I do care that he's not there tomorrow
Again and again he's been a Slacker
Now he's not coming back-er

Chorus:
I never thought that this day would ever come
I thought dapper would last past Episode One
Episode One and Two and even Three
And dapper would hang out and slack with me
I never thought that this day would ever come
I thought we would all meet in London

Second Verse:
When I was a junior member
Other members taunted me
Now that I've become a Slacker
They're afraid of what they see
dapper made us our own site
Posted pictures and made a chatroom
I don't know why admins were attacking
But dapper's site makes for some good slacking

Chorus

Third Verse:
I feel so depressed this morning
My Slack mate dapper's gone away
He ditched his website and he's left us
This is a Slacker's darkest day
The chances are some admins went too far
They watched our chatroom and deleted our threads
Now I fear dapper's disgusted
Because some people cannot be trusted

Chorus

[Hooky rocks out on the bass until fade out]

Hey, I just remembered it's my birthday. Yippee!

My computer is crashed, I hate my job and it hates me, my pal dapper_bloke has left and I have a cold. Other than that, all is swell.

Slack on.

Best of luck dapper, it's been a real priviledge to slack with the best...

In tribute: Slack and Bash and Creep [to the tune of Midnight Oil's Earth and Sun and Moon]


Slack and Bash and Creep

In the morning we will wake up, and take to our chairs
Surf back to the forums, our own little lair
The slacker crew is restless, posts up to the sky
We're so damn unproductive, work's piling up high

The boss is in his office, eyes fixed to our files,
"That slacker's always working," he says with a smile
"We couldn't do without him," and heaping on the praise
He pulls out the chequebook, and throws out a raise

[do do do do do]
I wish you could see... this great mystery
Slack and Bash and Creep, forum tribe, staying alive
Slack and Bash and Creep, will survive

I know the office workers, they all envy me
A TCP-connection, and a shiny degree
Soon I'll have an office, and assistants to boot
Workers to work for me, and my own server too

Too lazy to care
Got a wing and a prayer

In the blink of an eye
Five o'clock and closing time

Slack and Bash and Creep, forum tribe, staying alive
Slack and Bash and Creep, staying alive, staying alive, staying alive


Cheers Gundark

//beer

p.s. Happy birthday Sandfarmer!

I have traveled far and wide, left and right, east and west looking for the meaning of life. I actually have not traveled anywhere because I'm too damn lazy. So I digress and find myself at my computer. Suddenly I am blinded by a flash of light and a voice says "You must become a Slacker!" and I reply " I don't understand! What is slacker?!!" Then the voice is gone and my computer reboots. Through many mouse clicks I find myself on this thread and suddenly it is all clear to me now...I must become a slacker. One who will not work but shall post until his fingers hurt. But I don't know where to start, how do I become a disciple of Slackismand how do I reach Nirslackna! Someone please teach me! Take me to your leader!!!!!!

Second wave of night shift slacking in. Only time for a little slacking as I am taking myself to the theater for number 11, while I still have a landspeeder at my disposal!

I too am working on getting my picture on the site...drag having to depend on someone else to help me, but I don't have a scanner. Time to light a fire under his butt, me thinks!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!

Check your email... You will be getting a card from me shortly...

Wow... yesterday WAS a sucky day for slacking... C'mon people,... WE'VE gotta post! (Yeah... I know I'm a hypocrite... ).

Sponger Wedge...
Indeed... the slack is strong with you... my opinion is that you should be trained... But confer with master Creepio before proceding on such an endeavor. Training to become one with the slack is not an easy task... You must be patient, and you must focus... You cannot slack on your slacking! Good luck, and may the slack be with you...

Have a great day of slack, everyone... !

Greetings Slackers!!!

Ye! Sandfamer it was a sucky slacker day. But you made it out lucky! I actually did do w*rk yesturday. I did so much I finished everthing early and I got to home earlier too. SO it was worth. To go back home and take a nap. I hope that this thursday will be a better slack day. It's only one more day till friday!!


Welcome Padawan Slacker Sponger Wedge, We will be watching your carreer with great interest. Be mindful of the living Slack young apprentice. I sense you can be a great slacker... Keep up the lack of work and we shall see.

Twi'lek Babe May the slack be with you. Hope your w*rk day is short and slackful one.

I've asked my self the same question why is it so quite? Where are all the Slackers.
I've figured it out!I know what's going on.
And I must warn you all.

One day I was passing by my Sith Partners Cubbie and I heard them discussing something. I assumed they were talking about work again and started to walk off when I heard them say...

partner1: Soon we will reviel(sp) ourselves to the Slackers.

partner2: The Sith Workers will have their revenge and destroy our enemies. The Work shall flow again.

At this point I was laughing my @ss off. They have no chance, they must have sniffed some bad stuff or something. Their numbers are small and over worked. They haven't a chance of defeating the SLackers.

Then the next day on my way to the lunch room I noticed that all the people that I saw working hard in their cubie wearing a black pin that read "Sith workoholics". This scared me.

I was the only one without one. I found the nearest office and stashed myself away there till they passed down the hallway.

Looking around I find that Im in some super duper computer lab with all these workstations, blinking buttons and unreadble terminals. I thought great! The games I could play in this room and no one the wiser. So I pull up a seat and tried to link up to the forum. But unstead I find every single Slackern names. I started to freak out. I wondered what could they possibly be doing with these names.

I scrolled down to my name and besides it was a list of work assignments they were going to give me. As I started to scroll down I saw tons and tons of these new reduntant work assignments. ALL FOR ME TO DO. They planned to flood the slackers with w*rk!!! I see now that their plan is succeeding. Yesturday, serves as a prime example. We must not work or the Slack will die!

We must resist!!

I bring you this warning in hopes to save the Slack. . . Oh NO my Sith partnere is coming I must go now. He seems to be carrying a stack of paper..


OOOOH NOO MORE W*RK!!! AAAAARRRGGH!!
