    Red, Bretsky, Harv, Joe and I were crying in our beers for the last week.
    When I was in a slump, I comfort myself by saying if I believe in dinosaurs, then somewhere, they must be believing in me. And if they believe in me, then I can believe in me. Then I bust out.

    You would be surprised how easy it is to spot most of them.

    Did we get embeds for Twitter video or the now defunct Vine?

    I had actually forgotten that I was still a member at Packerforum.com. I even started a thread over there asking of anybody knew about what happened to this place, but no info.

    Thanks for the upgrade Mad. Had me worried for a while... Glad to get my main source of Packer news back.

    Update? Looks like the same old same old to me. Maybe the battery drains a little quicker than before, otherwise just like before.

    Hey! He may be a beaner but he's OUR beaner. I was afraid Mad had been deported. Is he an anchor baby?

    I'm so freaking glad the site is back. It's not the same being negative about the Pack on other forums Seriously though, thanks Mad.

    My theory was that ransom-ware hackers had locked the place up and made the poorly calculated bet that Mad would pay eight bucks to get his site back.

    You say that, but I've been on this site since 2009, and I still don't recognize the alter egos.
    No longer the member of any fan clubs. I'm tired of jinxing players out of the league and into obscurity.

    Yeah, I checked in via Twitter. One of two accounts I follow, and the other one was for research.

    I almost joined Twitter to see what was going on.
    Sometimes life leaves a hundred dollar bill on your dresser, and you don't realize until later that it's because it f***** you.

    The problem with the "follow you" solution is that I don't see the tweets from other twits. So I experimented with following people following your packerrats account. Got deluged by hockey posts from greenbaygary, animal sex pics from joemailman, etc, etc etc. Fuck that.

    So then I sez to myself, "Myself, just suggest people put #packerrats in their posts, then we can see a chronological discussion by everybody at one link" https://twitter.com/hashtag/packerra...fault&src=hash As you see, the twitterverse alternate packerrats forum was a hit.

    Someday, probably soon, Mad's chorizo-clogged arteries and raging blood pressure will send him to that great fiesta in the sky. There will just be packerrats darkness. I suggest people talk to each other at #packerrats to talk about what Madtown meant to each of us personally, and insist that pbmax put up a forum.

    oh ya, case doesn't matter with hashtags. #PackerRats = #packerrats

    pbmax, the other alternative is you could retweet every tweet you get at your account. But that might suck more than the hashtag way.

    Madtown, why don't you tweet a message with #packerrats next time shit enters a fan. You must know a person under 30 who can show you how.

    I thought Mad got picked up by ICE and the domain expired.

    At least a buggy upgrade can be recovered from. Hope we didn't lose too many people permanently.

    I was lost without this place. I tried to leave, but somehow got sucked back in.
