The Reports of My Death (Dazed & Confused) Have Been Greatly Exaggerated
Posted by: Beam Me Up Scotty
Date: January 12, 2021 10:02AM
MRF-ADMIN NOTE - Dazed & Confused has requested a screen name change due to this - to Beam Me Up Scotty. This was just completed.


Well, this isn’t exactly what Mark Twain said but I think you get the idea.

Edit: I'm referring to this post:

[forums.macresource.com]

There are obviously two individuals using the same User Name ‘Dazed & Confused’ on some forums. Apparently a person named Timothy over at AS and I on this forum. When I first joined this forum I couldn’t decide what user name to use but since I had a hangover at the time Dazed & Confused seemed appropriate. Thankfully I no longer drink but unfortunately I picked the same user name as someone else.

My condolences to all who knew the other Dazed & Confused and please accept my apologies for the confusion. If I knew that someone else was using this user name I would have come up with something else; Knucklehead & Idiot come to mind.

Out of respect for Timothy I’d be happy to change my user name to something else. I’m not sure I can do that so I’ll leave that up to the almighty Mods. Please PM me for what I need to do on my end.

Once again, my condolences for the loss of someone so well loved. I can relate as I just lost my mother a month ago. It’s always hard to lose someone you love, time may heal all wounds but there will always be a part of you that is missing. I wish all of you reading this peace and joy in your life as we all go through some troubling times in the world and our nation.

Sincerely,
D & C (the other one)

Wow, my first 'Sticky'. I'd first like to thank my director and the Academy for...oops, wrong show & award.

Out of respect for the deceased I'm working with the Mods (think behind the curtain Wizard of Oz stuff here folks) to change my user name.

Best to all,
The Former D & C (the other one)

Edit: I've confirmed with the Wizard my new User Name. I'm now "Beam Me Up Scotty". I thought it somewhat fitting as at times I wish I could be beamed up somewhere else. Hopefully this user name is not to be confused later on the down the road but there are plenty of other Star Trek (the Original Series of course!) I can use.

So bizarre!
My condolences. My mother passed last year, just in time to miss the upheaval we’ve been into. Still miss her.
So, never shared a space in time with the other d&c, but Erik and his family have my best wishes.
Hard to find peace these days.

Great news -- my apologies for the confusion!

P.S. Something very similar to this happened to me on 9/11 - I can totally relate to how you're feeling now.

I had put up a joke comment, but then realized there actually had been a death involved, so Emily Litella to that.

Will just set that aside and say I'm glad to see you're okay, Poster Formerly Known as D&C.

Some of the best news I've heard in the last couple of weeks!




Two for two, I'm good now.

We are a government of laws, not men.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

-An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

Vaguely reminds me of something that happened when my mom died 20+ years ago. She passed, and a few days later I was driving home from work and my phone got a voicemail. It was my mom. She had called to see how I was doing.

She left the voicemail prior to her death, but it didn't make it through the system until a few days after she passed.

LOL.....Glad to hear you're still with us BeMUS, and sorry for the D&C at AS.

Seeing the reference to "Otto" in the post from AS brought back memories! "Otto @#$%&," right? I feel like that was a decade ago...maybe it was. Those days sort of remind me of the times through which we're living right now!

I imagine that was more than a bit eerie.

Now I feel dazed and confused.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

But something in the fog I call my brain has me remembering another member had the same-or very similar handle as Beam Me Up Scotty...
