We come on the Sloop UB
The Halfbakers and me
Around Australia town we did roam
Drinking all night
Lookin’ for you, right
We feel so broke up
Want you to come home.

So hoist up the UBs sails
See how the ‘bakery gets
Call for the buns and bones
He just went home
He left us alone
We feel so broke up
Why don’t you come back home?

It was around November ‘06
When UB said, “I quit”
He said he just couldn’t take anymore sh*t.
Moderators
Why don’t leave me alone, Yeah yeah
I feel so choked up
I wanna go home.

So hoist up the UBs sails
See how the ‘bakery gets
Call for the buns and bones
He just went home
He left us alone
We feel so broke up
Why don’t you come back home?

The Man is now Multiplin’
Left us all here cryin’
He took and changed his name to something like corn
Why won’t he come home?
Won’t he please come home?
This is the longest time
He’s ever been gone.

       Let's face it, we should be glad the basterd is gone.

       It's worth noting that he wasn't forced out; nothing stops him asking [jutta] for a password reset and coming back.
david_scothern, Mar 16 2007
  

       true, but I still miss him.
xandram, Mar 16 2007
  

       Perhaps you could send Hector email about that, then, and at least Cc him with this? I'm not sure he'll see it here.

       I emailed himself some time ago, but with no response.

       //Let's face it, we should be glad the basterd is gone.// This is a pretty strong incentive not to leave....

       I have emailed him before, but he said it was time to move on. Maybe with time, he will change his mind, or not.

       I miss him. [+]

       Three lines, hilarious yet sad at the same time.

       He and I were in contact at that time, and he was determined to get out, but I could tell he still wanted to post stuff that was overflowing in his mind. We placed a burden on him by expecting too much. It isn't easy being a *great personality*.
(btw, I did try in several ways to get him to stay. I hope he won't get mad with me talking about him.)
xandram, Mar 18 2007
  

       My suspicion is that he wouldn't read about you talking about him.   

       For those desperately craving their UB fix, he's posted a few ideas on multiply.   

       Good to see you round these parts again [copro].
