Devilish, Sledge & I both live in the DC area, so if you are in NoVA, we're sort of neighbors...

Yes, I knew this. So, hey ya neighbors  :) Can I borrow some sugar? LOL
Alot of sites are now using Frappr map for their members. See "Locations Map" on here to see what I mean. Maybe we could have one set up for SWLS members also.

Hah, I'm all out of sugar, unless you mean metaphorical sugar... got lotsa love for everyone here!  :D

Great idea on the Frappr map.  We have this over at LOST-TV also and it works well.  So I'm going to add it to the toppost, feel free to add yourselves!  (If you wish to be anonymous for the map, you may also just use "Username")

Hiya, my real name is Andy and I am from South East London, UK.  Im a restaurant manager and I just love Lost!  I borrowed season 1 off a mate and watched the whole boxset in 3 days!!  Been downloading the new episodes and just watched "2 for the Road".  My only problem is that i have no one to discuss the episodes with face-to-face.  Thank God for Sledge!!!!

Take care,

andy

Hi Adeyles, great to see another UK'er. I know what you mean about not having anybody to chat about the newest episodes - they're all getting excited about Season 2 only just starting over here! I have to be careful what I say when talking about Lost - this site is a Godsend!

What Restaurant do you manage - one I would know? (sorry if thats a bit too nosey, I'm just pleased to see somebody from this side of the ocean!). Not that I'm not pleased to see everybody else from the USA of course, or anywhere else for that matter. Oh, I'm rambling now, sorry - you know what I mean!

Cool, glad you guys have been adding yourself to the map!  Just out of curiosity, how have people been getting on Sledge's site these last few days?  It's been down this whole time for me, til this AM!

Oh, and for the UKers (or anyone international)... you can add yourselves to the map also, just FYI.  It may look like only a US map, but you can pan across or up and down with the arrows, to any country in the world!  Try it...

I had problems getting on the site Tuesday morning. Besides that, it's been all good for me.

Hey - Jeff from South Bend, Indiana here.  Been obcessed with lost since Jack's eye opened in pilot.  surfed many websites since start, but found the sledgemeister mid-season one.  Check in everyday at work since, but only started contributing in last two months.  Finally wanted to add my two cents and make predictions.  Pretty darn good predictions if I say so myself.

48, married with three boys 15 - 21.  All of them are into arts, graphic design, film editing, music, etc.  Fun.

I had trouble getting on to the site for the better part of a week starting last Wednesday.  Server not available or something.  Couldn't get my sledge fix!!  I was like a junkie without his stuff!!  Not a good scene, dude.

hey all, jody c here, hence the nickname jodeci.  i'm in cleveland, ohio and i work at the rock&roll hall of fame.  i found sledge at the beginning of season two, and it quickly became my fave 'lost' site.   i don't post a lot, but i do love to hear everybody's thoughts.  'lost' is the one show that i will not answer the door, phone or pager during    :) 
happy lost day everybody!

hi, I'm Karen (Ides of August is my birthday and is also two of The Numbers [depending on how you count ides]), and I'm a 30 something Lostoholic from Newton, Mass (which is pretty much Boston). (And I'm apparently addicted to parenthesis as well)

HAPPY LOST DAY !!!!

You can actually go in an edit the marker to go exactly where you are.  That's even scarier!

As it turned out, I had some weird issue with my ISP.  It was not resolving Sledge's new DNS, so I kept getting pointed to "page not found"... and all this time I thought it was just his server (I had no problems with any other site).  I called my ISP and got it resolved with a universal IP address.  Weird because it was inconsistantly on or offline this weekend... mostly appeared "down" to me from Friday til today.  I was joking with Sledge that he probably should not ban his staff. :D

If anyone else had similar issues over the weekend, please PM me.  Of course, that doesn't apply after tonight and tomorrow, because it could just be a server crush issue. :P

Hiya, I have had problems getting my Sledge fix on and off since the changeover  - same thing saying page not found. I have to say the last few days have been pretty smooth. My family has now forgiven me for my mood through the withdrawals! (teehee).    :D
