Update, 2020/12/01
Please see announcement in Forum Stuff for details.

SECURITY ADVISORY!
Today, 2020/11/18, suspicions have been expressed that there has been a data breach.
At least some DisMembers' login data may have been compromised.
While the facts behind those suspicions have not yet been established, your Administerrerr is treating them as credible. He is looking into this. He will try and beef up security.
Even if you did so only recently:
Please change your password!
Please click here, or use the menu ( button) to navigate to the the User Control Panel, therein to the Profile Tab, and there click Edit Account Settings. You should get it from there on.
For a safe password that will resist brute-force attempts (which we have been subject to in the past), please use upper and lower case letters, AND numerals, AND symbols, and make it as long as you feel feasible. 16 characters seems to be recommended these days.
DO NOT use a password you also use elsewhere.
While your Administerrerr tries to keep this place safe. Get real. Security here is mostly by obscurity, that is, no one serious enough to crack us like a rotten egg is likely to even bother. But if one does, you don't want the safety of your email of facebook or whatever to depend on one mostly blind, mostly clueless autodidact who can't work at this more than a few hours at a time, if that much.

If you used a password here that you also used elsewhere, you must set a new password there, also!
A different password, this time. If someone did breach us, the first thing they are likely to do with your login credentials is to try them out elsewhere. Login credentials compromised here are compromised everywhere else, also. If you did reuse a password, but with a different email, your administerrerrerr strongly urges you NOT rely on that different email keeping you safe. This whole thing runs on a database. That means your half-blind administerrerrerr can operate a database. Do you honestly think identity thieves, and those who sell them passwords by the ten-thousands, won't?
If you get an error message about an invalid form, click here.
Show
Every form you can debauch is on a time limit. Even if you feel you've been reasonably quick, some browsers seem to think otherwise.
Recommendation: type your password in something like a text editor or word processor, highlight (making sure not to highlight any leading or trailing spaces), copy, then reload the account settings page, paste, paste, debauch, and be all quick about it. Like Dan said, back in the when. Be like the housefly, and see the events of the world unfold in liquid slowness, or something to that effect.
*
If you cannot reset a forgotten password, click here.
Show
The "I forgot my password" function has been buggy for a while, I apologize. I will look into that, also, over the next few days.
UPDATE: I have looked into this. I think it should work now, but I can't test it all with my admin accounts. Anyone who tries it, please do let me know whether it works or not.
You yourself, meanwhile, might look into your SPAM folder. I know, I know, but humor me, please.
Also, if you have been around for a bit, try and remember whether the email you entered there was also the email you registered with back in the when. I'm sure the email addresses associated to some user-accounts are still hotmail.
If none of that solves your confound, hit me through the contact form, or grab me via dm on the Facebooks, or if none of that works, speak up in the Midget Circus. I will look out for you there, but I can't guarantee nothing.

I spoke to David the new owner of Kiser Creek and we are all set for June 21-25 of 2021. Mark your calendars and request your vacation days.

Expect a Denver pre-party on June 20.

I would like you to re-rename it “RAGNARöK 202X 2021!!!

I tried to bold and red the X, but I only got one or the other. If you can fix my error and make it a bold red X, that’s perfect.

I've made it as close to that as possible. Thread titles don't allow BBCode, I'm afraid, so red or bold are both out.
As regards making something both red and bold, try putting the code for red as the innermost set of tags. That is, highlight the text in question, and first select bold, then select the color.

The crash bars looked familiar as they had been on my own XS-650 but I gave them to Dozer knowing he would use them and he did. As it happens, the University of Maryland School of Sociology now has a permanent installation of Dozer's work, and at the opening a couple weeks ago I talked with his sister and she wants that bike. I can get it for the cost of the tow (or less), but ironically it will probably cost more to ship it to LA than it is technically worth..
That is absolutely amazing you found his bike like that.

Can we start a fund to help decrease that cost for you?
Wow I never read through these blocks of text til today. Is there any more story to this?!

Dozer's XS650 is now in my care. Our friend at the Yamaha/Triumph place repatriated it unto us and would not accept money in payment. I have sent them a box of Oregon charcuterie on behalf of the DisOrg.

The guy Dozer sold it too, also currently dead, apparently tried to add some Freedom. I do have the original seat, but I haven't even begun to get into how far it is from running. I presume everything rubber is probably rotten. Dozer's sister hasn't been able to take the class yet, because plague, but she's excited to have this connection. I was going to get a new battery first, make sure there's oil inside, clean the stator, pop in new plugs and see if it fires up. Any triage suggestions are most welcome.

Reach out to Aggroton, he just got two Yammy XSeses if I recall correctly. Maybe he can assist with parts? Awesome to see it back in the family!

Thank you; I still haven't had a chance to get into it and see how far from running it is. I think the old panhead is finally finding it's forever-home next month and that will give me space in the garage to set the XS650 upright and start taking things off like the flat tires. It will need some straighter bars, as those buckhorns it has on it now are ridiculous. I will update when I begin and start a new thread. :wink:

Well, at least going to next year gives me time to lose mass, and build a more touring worthy steed. By then I might even have a kid in tow on their of scoot. #dadgoals
