I had been checking BZP on my phone every once in a while, and when I saw the forums up this morning I was really excited. And then I realized that it would be most of the day before I could actually check them out properly. So, excitment, sad realization, and then more excitment. -Demeb

A server busy message is just BZP's way of reminding you to do your homework.

Let's see, my internet just came back on, I was about to do my homework... "Well I may as well check once to see if Bzpower is back yet" Needless to say my productivity was shot.

*Incoming Transmission* I looked at the BZPower website, saw a big, bold link, and I clicked on it. Then I saw that it was some groovy new forums. Then I was like :br: . So I told my brother as soon as I could, and I've been checking the forums about every thirty minutes. Not really, but close. *End Transmission*

9:30 PM

My headlights illuminate a large white gate,

closed and locked, admission blocked—

A thousand spiders crawl up my spine.

With chattering teeth I brave the chill

and approach the gate. Gunshots and guffaws

crowd my senses—distant, yet near.

Phobos and Deimos sing in my ear,

and I hunch my shoulders to shoo them away;

unsuccessful, I fumble for keys in a tight denim pocket—

A thousand spiders crawl up my spine.

Noises draw near, elicitors of fear.

I find the ring and unsteadily bring

it out. Sticking my arms between wrought iron bars,

I find the padlock. I take a deep breath and send up a prayer.

I insert the key and try to give it a turn—

A thousand and one.

I went 'oh cool BZP is back up' Then I went 'oh **** this means I have to give Alkermpa a fighting chance' Then I realized maybe I could get in touch with some of my old friends, and I was ever so slightly uplifted.

On another forum, someone posted about BZPower's forums being up. I was on the verge of telling him, "No, those are just the archives," but I decided to check BZPower anyway. Just in case, I told myself.I saw the news announcement.I think my brain did a somersault, but I blacked out immediately afterward so I can't be sure.

That pretty much was my reaction. Then I was like: WHAAAAAT?! While posting in the forums, I got nostalgia attacks.

Why are orange and black such a good color Combination ? Purple is pretty, and so is blue. Pink hurts your eyes, green is quite mellowing, black is very threatning, red is cool, orange is SO awesome, yellow's hard to read... But you can't see white at all! Oh, wait. I forgot brown.

Here's my thoughts: If a person tells the truth and says, " I always lie," Is he lying? Or is he telling the truth? And what has a mouth, but no head, and a body, but no torso? Do caterpillars like to tend to supporting colum of stone's every need? Or is that name misleading by nature? Speaking of nature, why are the children of animals called offspring? don't many young beasts come alive in spring, and thus, should be called onspring? Heeeeeeyy..... I got the first post on a page for the first time. Who knows; it may happen again. What the... It did happen again... and again...

YEAH! I'M ENCOUNTERING PROTODERMIS!

At first I thought UK was trying to trick me again since he told me the forums were back up a couple days before. Then when I found out they were actually up I think I actually squealed with joy. You should have been there. All of you.

I guess, "Let's see what's new." was the initial reaction. To be honest I'm not sure what I think yet. The old BZPower was such an familiar and comfortable place.

Well I just came to the site to check the news like I've been doing for nearly six months now... You know, there was a little spark of hope in my mind BZP could be back, ya' know? Maybe it is... But as I was clicking on the explorer tab... going into my homepage and up to my little web tab thingy... The thought ran throuhg my mind no... Of course it isn't, because BZPower like all good things has abbandoned you. It had left you out to dry in the cold cruel - I saw the front page. And literrally for about five seconds sat there staring at my screen, unable to to opperate at all... completely and utterly speachless... BZPower had not abbandoned me... I wasn't alone in this cold, cruel - Oh look, topics. :P P.S. TO THE NUIMOBILE!! :tohu:
