New Members Check-In Thread...


Silent Grey Fellow
Hello all. Pleased to meet you. Retired aerospace engineer with the Navy (33 years as a civilian). I've been reading here for quite some time now and decided to finally join in, though I will probably listen more than speak.

I joined Timebomb many years ago but dropped offline when my husband was sick and dying from cancer.
When he died it was a struggle to keep the place going. Just didn't have the time or energy to get online.

After the election I remembered Timebomb would have all the news to keep me informed.
Thank you for letting me come back.


Leading the charge without any help.
Hello, found this site by accident only a few weeks ago, registered almost immediately.

spent a few years collecting survival stuff off various sites. had a hard drive crash and no backups lost all of it.

Time to start over... unfortunately without all those sites since they have all been purged by our government.

new member checking in as required :)
I've read some posts over the past few months and then decided to register so I could see all the postage stamp sized images - figuring out an email to apply for registration was an ordeal - y'all definitely locked this site down.

It’s locked down because over the years open registration proved to generate more trolls and troublemakers than good members. We never wanted to lock it down; it hurts growth. But that’s better than such a high “noise level” that it drowns out meaningful dialogue.

Welcome to the asylum!
