    Miriel, I think it was you who sent me some cookies when I first moved to California and they were so good I still remember them from time to time.

    Wow. Forgot about this place. I think the last time I was on here was a good twelve years ago. Not sure why my name is Halifax Housewife now.. (this is Cheffie, the kid who had one hell of a lot of growing up to do).

    Glad these forums are still around. I hope you all are doing swell. Congrats Murder.

    It has been a very long time. Sad to see BoB step down after being at the forefront for so long, but glad that the site is still in good hands.

    I have enjoyed seeing all the old names in this passing of a torch, and it reminds me that this site was a fun place years ago.

    And thus ends the Thunderdome saga between Del and The Walrus. Who knew that instead of attempting a hostile takeover, the real way to win was just by asking nicely. I may have sided with Psychotic, but i imagine EoFF couldn’t be in better hands for this new era.

    First of all, we all owe Loony BoB/Daniel a big thank you for everything he has done for the site over the years. No one has meant more to EoFF than he has, particularly in the last few years as he has kept this place afloat at a (nontrivial) cost to himself. The emails and the returning members are just as much a tribute to his service to the site over the last 20 years.

    When BoB bought the site so many years ago I figured the place had it's last owner. It just felt right for him to have it. So I was very surprised to come to Eyeson one evening and see he was thinking of shutting down. After I read through his reasons I completely understood and respected where he was coming from, but I wasn't ready to let the site go just yet. EoFF gave me so many great laughs and friends and fun, and most importantly, it gave me my family. I owe everything to this little FF fansite. I thought if I could keep it going for a while longer and while people still valued the site, I owed EoFF that much. Who knows, maybe there's one more family out there to be created by these special forums.

    I don't know if I come into this with any grand plans or schemes (April Fools! I'm selling the site to Facebook!), but there are a few things I will commit to. One is to keep the site 100% ad-free and member owned, which has not always been the case, but was certainly true of BoB's time. The second is to retain the shared history of EoFF we all have, as I think that nostalgia of coming back after 1 month or 10 years (or even being a new member) to something familiar and outside the sphere of the modern internet is a big part of what makes this place great. To that end, if you have any ideas on how to spruce up the old place, then I'd love to hear them. I'm a pretty open-minded person.

    It's been great to see all these returning people, even if it is just one post and then back to your lives. I do hope some of you stick around and hang for a bit. I also appreciate all the support and confidence that the site is in good hands. Though really, until I hear from The Man, it just doesn't feel complete...

    But with the leftover money I also got these magic beans!

    I thought this thread was about warm applesauce and now I am deeply disappointed.

    I would like to put sincere thanks on record to Daniel for stepping in and taking over the site when he did, enabling our community to continue. That hasn't come without a financial or a personal cost and it's both acknowledged and appreciated. Happy "retirement", if you want to call it that!

    As for Del, well, just when you thought you were out of the game. You thought you could have a life, settle down with a family, leave all of that staff business in the rear view mirror. Well,




    Congrats to all the winners.
