    Another one who looked in after an absence, and noticed the new Ship. I can see a lot of familiar faces, and one or two new ones.

    My original name on the Ship was Maher-Shalal-Hash-Baz, but that proved unwieldy and eventually I shortened it to MSHB.
  • Welcome MSHB. I wondered if you not seen new ship.
  • Welcome back MSHB - didn't you rename yourself something to do with Small Hobbits on one thread?

    Welcome back, MSHB! I remember when you were known as Maher-Shalal-Hash-Baz! I always thought that was a cool name.

    Welcome back, MSHB. I remember your name, and never realised it was short for Maher-Shalal-Hash-Baz.

    It moved through Middle Shire Hobbit Brigade IIRC, although (and from dim memory) you don't live in the middle of the Shire but the south-west of it. Welcome back

    It's nice to see you here, Carys!
  • Used to be a shipmate many moons ago under a different name. Thought I'd pop in again.
  • Welcome back!

    Welcome back, magnilo! What was your name on the Old Ship?

    Do I have to say? :blush:

    Not at all - welcome back anyway! :)
  • RossweisseRossweisse Hell Host, 8th Day Host, Glory
    I suppose not, but it hardly seems sporting. Welcome back regardless, magnilo!

    Getting new software is kind of a jubilee year thing. Unless we discover you wrote the anonymous op-ed piece in the NY Times that came from a top Trump administration official.
  • Well, call me numpty, but I’d prefer not to say.🤣
  • Welcome back magnilo.
  • RossweisseRossweisse Hell Host, 8th Day Host, Glory
    Ah. I understand!

    Hello! Lurked for years. Thought I’d take the plunge.

    I’ll be investigating the required reading that new joiners are steered towards.

    But, for now, nice to meet you all, virtually as it were.
  • Welcome!
  • @HymnNumber466 you'll certainly fuel wild speculation about which particular hymnal that might refer to!
  • RossweisseRossweisse Hell Host, 8th Day Host, Glory
    Welcome! (Yes, which hymnal?)
  • HymnNumber466HymnNumber466 Shipmate Posts: 26
    Hi, and manythanks for the welcomes.

    As for the hymnal, the hymn is Thou Whose Almighty Word...you find the hymnal!

    That was my first thought too. However I see now that all has been revealed.

    Welcome aboard.

    Welcome aboard indeed, Hymn No. 466!

    If you take a few minutes to check out the 10 Commandments and FAQs (links on the main boards page), they should tell you everything you need to know about what's what and who's who.

    Happy sailing!

    I have been watching the on board activity through binoculars from the comfort of a dockside tavern but found the King's Shilling at the bottom of my glass, so here I am on the ship!
    My name? - Definitely not as wise as Solomon, but hopefully not a complete fool.
  • Welcome Darda. Happy sailing!
  • Welcome Darda. It will be interesting to find out which particular King's Shilling brought you aboard.

    Just an expression, I haven't actually been press ganged! Just thought it was time to take those first tentative steps up the gang plank :blush:
  • I thought it was a way of saying something being discussed had intrigued you enough to want to post. My response was trying to say it would be interesting seeing what had engaged you. I originally came on board, after lurking for probably a year, because I knew the answer to a question someone had posted in Ecclesiantics - and even then I posted the answer as a private message.

    Welcome aboard, Darda! :smile:

    As you've already been lurking, you probably have a good idea of what's what on the boards, but if you have any questions, the 10 Commandments and FAQ pages (links on the home page) should tell you everything you need to know.

    Happy sailing!
