Hello all,
It's been a long time since I've posted on these boards, tried to log into my old account but by the looks of it the forums were reset in 2009. Some of the older members like Billy, Bluesman, and Humphreys might remember me.

Anyway, I'm going to be obnoxious and pester you all (my apologizes) but I think you'll agree it's a worthwhile cause. I'm in a publicity contest hosted by the newspaper Metro and Space XC to send some fortunate fool into space. I would desperately love to be that fool. I can think of nothing more educational, more inspirational, and humbling than to look down upon the curve of the earth and realize, not merely intellectually, but actually, to the marrow of your bones, that we are not citizens of a state or country but citizens of a world. United, connected and indivisible. I'm currently in 4th place, 51 votes away from 3rd--I really think this is doable which is staggering to me. It's a vote based contest where the top finishers for each nation get to go and present merit based presentations based on mindset, zeal and physical fitness for the chance to fly.

I reach out to you because this is the blackvault, if there's anyone who understands the unparalleled privileged event it's you guys. But more importantly, because I remember the blackvault as a collection of great people--certainly the online community I was most proud to have been associated with.

If anyone is interested, you have my eternal gratitude. My profile is at http://metroinspace.com/us/vie.....hane_Eyler You can click the vote button once per day, and theoretically from every device you have (laptop, work computer, smartphone, etc.)

Thank everyone so much for their time and for putting up with my obnoxious message.

My old posting name was also almostalien, or possibly almostalien51. Something like that. Used to on here back during the early to mid 2000's. Then I went to college and stopped posting; would stop in to read and catch up every once and again but there was so much to do in college between sailing, and hiking, and improv, and a million other things (like school work I suppose) so I didn't spend a lot of time on my computer.

Wow, good for you on doing great things in your life. don't recall your posting name, but the board has had several upgrades over the years. John is still plugging away on the site, and continues to add documents to the archieves here. The last board upgrade required everyone to register again. Glad you are back, keep posting. Welcome back!

Haha, that explains so much blues. Thank you guys so much for the votes. Loving the new layout, real easy to find documents. Judging by the case files tab looks like investigation is being brought even more into the community focus. Really cool stuff.
