HSX Forum


Thanks for the update. I'm a little surprised how much this has upset me ...

Posted by: bface on May 03, 18:31 in response to lobogotti's post HSX Members, Please Read for Updates...

I've been playing over 20 years and this game has been a constant through a lot of things that have happened in my life. If it can't be saved, I'll be very sorry to see it go.

HSX Members, Please Read for Updates... lobogotti May 03, 14:35

Alabama to Clarence: "You're so cool." {nm} Paul2k May 03, 15:04

I legit spit my drink out on that one. Paul, these people don’t know we’re buddies offline :) {nm} lobogotti May 03, 15:10

Thanks for the update and thanks for telling it like it is. {nm} tallbridge May 03, 15:15

no problem. hopefully we get some good news this week. {nm} lobogotti May 03, 15:33

Hey, thanks for giving it your best shot. Worse case scenario, we all reunite somewhere... {nm} TerenceHill May 03, 15:16

I’ll keep going until they’re is no room to wiggle. Yeah, there are boards that exist we could migrate to or create a new one. lobogotti May 03, 15:35

thanks for the video...yeah probably a good idea...I didn't get the Clarence reference up there =P {nm} tealfan May 03, 15:21

Paul thinks of me as Patricia Arquette from True Romance {nm} lobogotti May 03, 15:31

Hello from looooooong dead ghost of the David Fund DAVIDF May 03, 15:34

Why not start crowdfunding right away? If we don't raise enough to buy HSX, we could build our own. {nm} bsbbtnh May 03, 16:50

I'd feel more comfortable starting that process when there was a Board (and specified volunteer roles) in place. lobogotti May 03, 17:20

In case HSX can't be saved, we can consider to continue in a private facebook group. We can have OW, call and put options as polls... extepan May 03, 17:29

uncertain how others feel about it, but we can poll the idea if we run out of options {nm} lobogotti May 03, 21:32

Great video...you are adorable! {nm} Movie Cub May 03, 18:08

I think you’re being funny, but thank you {nm} lobogotti May 03, 21:33

Thanks for the update. I'm a little surprised how much this has upset me ... bface May 03, 18:31

if you look at the polling numbers, nearly half of those individuals are just like you... playing 20+. that’s some serious time lobogotti May 03, 21:35

Thanks a lot for that video, Lobo. TFeeney May 04, 16:49

Lobo, re: "Are you qualified?" Before you gave your background my first thought was you are qualified because you stepped up. DTravel May 03, 18:39

you’re definitely not off in your suggestions. that is in discussion currently. thank you for the kind words. {nm} lobogotti May 03, 19:00

"Are you qualified" is a fair question, especially when asking for $, but not many people would have the combo of owning an IT business and RogerMore May 03, 19:20

definitely a fair question and I thought I should address it. as I’ve said, I hope a strong board can be formed and thise lobogotti May 03, 19:26

Dumb question, but could we reverse engineer a site? TheDowIsUp May 03, 20:31

it can be done, but you’ll lose all the history within each port. you’d lose all the history of everything, really. the lobogotti May 03, 21:31

Would we need much history, though? bsbbtnh May 04, 07:43

Please consider the benefits of taking this type of discussion to a non-public forum. Thank you. {nm} SenJohnBlutarsky May 04, 10:34

would you please email me... lobogotti May 04, 11:10

A valid point. An email list is easy enough, I can set one up if desired. {nm} DTravel May 04, 13:21

Appreciate the update and the inside look at the challenges. Thanks for leading the charge. Excelsior! {nm} gsquared May 03, 21:15

my wife and I just turned off Silver Linings Playbook, not 10 minutes ago.... seriously. and thanks {nm} lobogotti May 03, 21:27

where's crazy max keiser when you need him? {nm} tentin quarentino May 03, 22:46

heh, that’s not a bad idea actually {nm} lobogotti May 04, 04:43

Great vid, thanks for the update. But I don't think someone who wears a Butler Bulldog hat is qualified. Haha, jk. {nm} avandelay May 04, 04:19

go Dogs! {nm} lobogotti May 04, 04:44

Has Cantor had any economic reason for having kept this going, other than Good Will? Has the predictive date been sold? Is there anyone out mrbinns May 04, 06:28

I believe they wanted to turn this into an actual exchange, using real money. {nm} bsbbtnh May 04, 07:45

The Cantor Exchange experiment was a decade ago.... Amazing how time flies. {nm} HurricaneKid May 04, 07:47

Delta House recommends that anyone involved in trying to preserve HSX refrain from substantive public comments. Trust us, we're pre-law. SenJohnBlutarsky May 04, 07:11

I have to believe that there is a potential untapped user-base out there for HSX. HurricaneKid May 04, 07:55

YouTube says "Video Unavailable - This Video Is Private" {nm} PhoneHome May 04, 08:31

I get the same {nm} erhead56 May 04, 11:37

I took it private for a bit. I'll update here when I turn it back on... sorry for the inconvenience {nm} lobogotti May 04, 11:55

okay, I turned it back on. {nm} lobogotti May 04, 15:35

I thought you were going to be a basement neckbeard but pleasantly relieved. {nm} Prophecy May 04, 16:06

How many digits are Cantor ball-parking the price of this thing? Prophecy May 04, 16:08

hope to get this info out soon. {nm} lobogotti May 04, 16:22

ha, well you caught me on a good day. {nm} lobogotti May 04, 16:21

Thanks - and by the way, are you really the alter ego of Mojo Rawley? {nm} Torfin May 05, 06:16

lol {nm} lobogotti May 05, 10:03

You rock man. could you please give me access to the survey? {nm} L3stat May 05, 08:09

the link to the results are listed in the post. {nm} lobogotti May 05, 10:02

meant for you L3stat {nm} lobogotti May 05, 10:03

Damn. Didn’t realize how bleak things looked. {nm} Opener Fund May 07, 19:59
