If you have something so weird, strange or off-topic to post and think it doesn't belong in any other forum; you're probably right. Please put all your gormless, half-baked, inane, glaikit ideas in here.

That's going to likely make for a better site here if anything. The general will have literally nothing to do with his time there... lol. No girls, no drinking... he'll be on here nearly 24/7. I on the other hand will be busy catching up with old friends (as he's been doing this past week in the US, which is why he's not been on here) and surfing, and working on my existing long term projects besides my new 9-5 job... so likely be on here less. What time for CEO I will have will mostly be spent working on some pretty cool system changes.

Though I'm sure I'll pop in from time to time to get a few of my regular haters more aneurysm juice.
Oh! I am confident this site will go from strength to strength, my previous post was seeking to look through the eyes of the previous regime.

To them it may be an opportunity for a stay of execution, a glimmer of hope. A chance for the Reich to rise once again, for the K440 flag to fly again, high over the kingdom.

We, who remain, well those who remain, as I am manning the CEO Consulate offices in Wigan, will prepare our defences to face to the new wave of disguised woollen foot coverings.

Eleven years on this site is a very long time indeed. Over more than a decade of 440ing, I’ve encountered the very best and worst of expat society in Cambodia. On the positive side of the balance sheet, I’ve met brilliant minds and genuine mavericks who might have wandered straight out of an Elmore Leonard novel. On the negative side, I’ve had the misfortune to chance upon pedos, crooks, chancers, journalists and sometimes even Australians.

When a website, even a slightly dickish one, has been such a major part of your life for longer than many marriages, it can be terribly difficult to uncouple, but uncouple I must. Over the last three years, both myself and this website have done some growing up; the site somewhat and myself somewhat more.

A couple of years ago, I experienced something the American scholar Warren G. Bennis would term ‘a crucible experience’ – a traumatic event from which I surprised myself by emerging stronger, hardier, more committed, more able to grasp context and far more engaged with my own future than I ever have been in the four decades I’ve been stumbling, sometimes incoherently, around this planet. And in this two-year period, I’ve managed to marry an awesome Khmer woman who I deeply love and who loves me equally, find a job I l adore doing (and get promoted), have a house built, enroll at grad school and work diligently to get two semesters of a masters degree program under my belt with a third semester starting in two weeks. Truly my cup runeth over.

In its own digital, cyber way, K440 has grown too and a while ago I began to sense that for the site to continue its development, it would need a new custodian and just as importantly, I would need to persevere with my own growth by stepping back from K440 and the expat internet maelstrom generally.

Nevertheless, it’s been of crucial importance for me to locate not just a new owner but the right owner: a good fit, and I feel I’ve managed that.

For a while now Scobienz has been modding the site admirably. He understands the organizational culture of K440 and has a true appreciation of our history. From today, he will be take charge of this website and it will be business as usual with, I hope, a seamless transition.

The existing mod team support Scobienz and the site will remain expat owned, expat focused and perhaps even a little more inclusive. We are without a shadow of doubt the best Cambodia expat website in cyberspace and under the new leadership we will continue getting better. I’m proud to hand the site over to Scobienz and I hope you all support him and make this transition a positive one.
In all seriousness, I wish him good luck. We obviously used to be friends, and he called it off when we started CEO. Fair enough.

Whether you like him or not, K440 has been around for 11 years, and many of us were happy there, once upon a time. It has lost its appeal for many of us lately, but maybe Scobie can get it back on track, LoL.

I'm glad KiR isn't at the helm any longer, for nearly everyone's sake, but I do wish him luck with whatever else he does.

Bottom line is, I hope both forums survive the new era. Freedom of choice is a wonderful thing, and the more choices everyone has in the world the better! !

We shall see....

My account maybe was banned from k440?

Not certain but I posted the vomiting gif just taking the piss. I would be surprised if Scobie deleted my account over that as i was certain he knew many of my posts were lighthearted.

How can I figure if Scobie actually banned my account?

LoL, when was this? It could still be KiR. He's still "red."

Awww, and he changed his signature for the new owners from something nasty to something sweet. Cute nas!

I tried to see the lists for moderators/admin, but that function ain't working over there now...
