Someone wrote some very hateful emails to Nick and he has decided to pull the plug on the EMRR website. This is terrible news. :(

Curses, foiled again.

Nick, may the fleas of a thousand camels infest your armpits.

Scared the heck out of me.
EMRR is the first place I go when starting a new project.
I would have been absolutely lost:eek:

thank u, next
Nick, may you fall down a long flight of stairs :kill:

That was too funny, though, once I got past the front page and writing out the pseudo-Latin and everything... ;)

And on the upside, even MADDOX put up an April Fool's page...

https://www.maddox.xmission.com for the uninitiated... :D

I have to admit, this has been the best day of my entire EMRR life! The notes have been wonderful, painful, and funny! Especially the "aw, ya got me's"

I will post them, without names, at some point... on EMRR!

Many expressed... "I know I didn't say thanks enough, but..."

I appreciate that, but if you want to express thanks:

+ stay interactive (new reviews, feedback, tips)
+ join the contests
+ enter the flight logs
+ visit the hobby shops that have banners on the site
+ keep supporting the hobby and manufacturers


And shamelessly :rolleyes: if you feel like it buy the next new version of "EMRR on CD", since that primary funds the site and the Quarterly Rocket Give-Aways.

Thanks all. I'll put the site back together tomorrow morning instead of Sunday.

Don't forget to change your clocks.... Spring ahead.

Nick

gave me the sweats.
if it wasn't for EMRR i would not have found out about TRF.

i would have been making more mistakes than i already am.
never even noticed that you offer a cd. i would be able to look up things,tips/hints without having to bump the wife off of the computer. could just go into the shop with the old system and read it there.

Nick,

I am sending you the doctor's bill for removing the hook, line and sinker from my throat. :) Glad you are not going anywhere.

I'm just glad to see that Nick was just playing an April Fool's joke but he had me convinced that he was actually pulling the plug on the site. I always refer to it before I consider a particular project.

I'm glad that Nick isn't going anywhere but it's still sad that a few disgruntled minds have to squash the efforts of others.

Nick runs a top-notch site and the rocketry community would suffer a major loss without it. Keep up the great work Nick.

:)

OOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHH man.... Ya got me.

And ya almost gave me a heart attack!!! Dont do that again, man!!!:eek: ;) :p Well, as long as I am still young, I guess my heart can take it, but once I am 50 or somethin.... Itll kill me!!!!


Glad to hear the sites still up. It occupied my entire winter when I couldent build anything!!! Well, now that the spring building/flying season has kicked into high gear, you can expect another half-dozen or more reviews from me... I gotta fly my Deltie B (I GOT MOTORS!!!! As soon as this frikkin rain stopps and dries up I will fly. Promise. Though that may take a week or so. Rains in the forcast all weekend up here. :kill: ), 3" tomahawk, and build and fly my Tres, and then there will be reviews. I also gotta get my computer fixed so I can get pics of my digital camera...

That was the baddest, meanest evilest april fools joke ever.... Even badder than when my mom told me I was getting a moustache last year!!!!!:kill:

Youve got one heck of a sense of humor, thats for sure!!:eek: ;) :D :p

How about a Fliskits rocket design contest where the rule is:

It has to be titled the "Tricky Nicky"?

I am coming in on the tail end of this thread, but I was fooled also....... I had to go the end of the posts to read the "you got me" before I knew what was going on.......... I would really miss the flight logs section.............

Next time an April 1 date is approaching, we need to prepare to flood Nick with EMRR entries like:

Flight report on Estes Mosquito powered by a J motor

Construction report including step where cement was used to pour airframe tube

Entry in 'Tips and Advice' column discussing use of an anvil as a recovery device

Feedback on construction of (rocket of your choice) complaining that you can't figure out where the bananas, ice cream, chocolate syrup, whipped cream, and cherry are supposed to fit

Nick, you've been warned
