Post 3+ Months Ago

Twas the night before Christmas, and all through OZZU
Not a member was posting and the guests had the flu
The spiders were crawling (the bots were not dead)
And visions of programming ran through my head.

The forums were quiet, not a soul was in sight
And I'm thinking this meant that the work would be light.
Bigweb with his servers, UNFLUX with his Flash
Had reset the daemons to clear out the trash.

When out in the forums there arose such a clatter
I sprang to my 'puter to see what was the matter
Away to my desktop I flew like a flash
Deleted my history and cleaned out my cache.

White font on the gray of the OZZU background
Gave the feeling of peace that no one was around
When what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But Bigweb and his team, all dressed in mod gear.

With the little old driver all dressed up in red
I knew in a moment it must be Bigweb
More rapid than eagles the moderators came
And he whistled and shouted and called them by name

"Now UNFLUX, now ATNO, now beta, now Jim,
On dM, on vetofunk, on joebert and jess
on daemonguy, on lucassix, on musik, on call
To the top of the forums, now dash away all."

As wild electrons in the cyclotron fly
when they meet with an obstacle mount to the sky
So up to the forums the moderators flew
With good wishes for Christmas from Bigwebmaster too.

And then in a twinkling I heard on the forum
The whining and grumbling of each little moron.
As I drew in my hand and was turning around
To the rescue came Bigweb with a bound.

He was dressed all in denim from his head to his foot,
(probably some making of the famed Martha Stewart).
A bundle of code he had flung on his back
To prepare in advance for malicious attack..

He looked all around and did many a query
He seemed as though he was quite a bit wary
But what he discovered was pleasant indeed
That the members enjoyed what he'd done for their need.

The reigns of his mods he held tight in his grasp
But he gave them leeway 'cause they all are first class.
The result was that really he had nothing to do,
But to lie back and chuckle and enjoy OZZU

He was happy, content -- a right jolly webmaster
And was happy to see all the members he's after
A wink of his eye and a twist of his head
Was all between us that was all that need said.

He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work
And filled up the forums and turned with a jerk.
And laying a finger aside of his mouse
He jumped like a gymnist to the top of the house

He sprang to his forums, to his team gave a whistle
And away they all flew like the down of a thistle
But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight
"Merry Christmas OZZU and to OZZU a goodnight!" :)

Most of the users mentioned here never visit the site anymore. This makes me sad.

Merry Christmas.
