Title: Where is Sweersa?
Post by: TomBeck on June 26, 2016, 01:07:29 AM
I think, it happend again and nobody noticed it. One of our most popular members Sweersa is no more active in this forum. We had in the past a „Where is Rafael“ thread. There, Sweersa told us, that nobody noticed it, that he was not here for over a year. See here:

http://videopac.nl/forum/index.php?topic=2454.0 (http://videopac.nl/forum/index.php?topic=2454.0)


This should not happend again  ;) . So where is Sweersa? His last login was 7.6., but his last post was at 21.2! So what happend with him?

Has he opened his Magnavox Service Center and has no time for us?

Is he trapped in his room full of his many many many Odyssey2 consoles?

Or has he bought a Colecovision  :o , or a Intellivision  :o  or much more worse: a Atari 2600?  :o :o :o … and has fun with it?  :D

Sweersa, where are you!? Maybe we should start printing Milk-cartons.

He's around (at least on FB). Guess he isn't popping in here lately!?

It's nice of you that you're worried about Sweersa, but there are many more forum members that were very active once, and now never seem to show up anymore. Guess some people just stop collecting Videopac and then stop visiting this forum too.

Yes, I haven't seen George for a long while.

I see it on other forums too. I guess it's a normal thing to bappen. People come and go.
Mind you, this forum is ten years old next year, lots of members from the early days haven't been here for a long long time.

I'm here! Thanks to Ozyr for pulling me back in. :) I appreciate the concern, I've just been super busy lately. Usual life things, working, looking for a house, and a hobby I can't share here which includes some North Korean finds :P etc. Have not had much time to play with any of my 13 Odyssy 2 consoles, unfortunately.  But I'll do my best to make time! That login from earlier this month was from work, I just had to check on things for a bit!

Haha Tom this is a funny thread, that missing poster made me LOL And the comment on the service center! Haha
Here's an updated picture of me with my friend's dog Bella, if this happens again (I hope it doesn't)

My cousin's wedding will be in the next few months, I plan on gifting him an Odyssey 2 along with some games as the first act of the Michigan Magnavox Service Center. :D We used to play with the one my aunt and grandma had, so I'm sure he and his wife to be will enjoy it! Now I have to pick one of the 13 to give away. Haha I think a multicart would be good for them too, maybe a gift for the future! (I have plenty of duplicates to gift)

Anyways, I hope you and yours are all doing well. I might have to snag one of those Spider-Man Parker Bros Marc made before they are gone, those look sweet!

My "MISSING" poster helped. Alex is back! Hi and welcome!  :)

Thanks for the new picture. I can use it for my next poster. I saw, that you have flooded the forum with your posts. That I want to see. That´s what I missed. And you came back at the right time, because you ordered one of the last wonderful Spiderman from Marc. Don`t forget Forbidden Lands, Mission Impossible, Shooting Gallery, Moto Crash, Space Cavern...  ;D

I wish you all the best, to find a new house and much fun with your other hobby (we don´t write something about it ) and don´t leave us so long alone in the future.

Yes that's true. I too can be offline often from this forum for a long time. Sometimes attention is shifting into other directions. I'm currently more into retro home computers, so i visit those forums more often.
