    I had one of, if not the, first SpineWire posts way back when. I read about it in New Mobility and was surprised to find it was so sparse, but it grew quickly.

    I understand why came about, but like so many other internet ventures, I believe their business model was flawed from the get-go. It could have worked, could have been great..but then so could so many other sites that died.

      Ich bin auch wieder da!

      I caught Spinewire about a month and a half before the Cando merger. This is a user friendly, spam and ad free site with good people and great information. Feels like a good inflated roho cushion!

            So glad that Wise set up this website. It was
            very upsetting to me when I tried to bring up
   Wise I met you at Rutgers, unfortunetly I never spoke with you and that was
            a big disappointment to me. I did get to speak
            with Patricia, she was wonderful. I am so grateful you are on our side. You truly care about us and we do in return. Thank you so much
            for being there for us, and for this wonderful
            site and your devotion.

            God Bless!

              Thanks, Jal

              I have also been quite distressed over what happened at Cando. It is really the people who come to these forums who make it a vibrant community, not me. Wise.

                      New, kinda

                      I'm just testing the water. I have posted at spinal nurse at spinewire before, a couple of times at the old general board too.

                      This new site seems like it has a great start !

                          I met Wise first on scipin-l(e-mail list)-it still exist, then I was posting on Cure Paralysis Now (great site created by Greg Winget, thanx Greg!!!), then is was spinewire (inspired by Wise & Sam Maddox), then Sam sold spinewire to capitalist pigs from cando...
                          In between I was kicked out from quad list, since owner was also a pig...

                            Hello everyone, I am new to this forum and very happy to join the rest of you.

                              Welcome Damir

                              Welcome to the forum Damir. I hope you find information and good stimulating discussion. How are things in general in Croatia? Its 100 degreees here in Washington DC and very humid. Many people are on vacation and go to the seashore or the mountains to cool off. I work in the gov't regulating nuclear power plants. If I recall correctly Croatia does not have one. The nearest nuclear power plant is Krsko in Slovenia, right?

                              Many people believe in global warming caused by burning fossil fuels like coal and oil. I think we have to get more data to make a good assessment of how much affect burning coal etc has but I believe that they pollute the atmosphere.

                              Sorry to have gotten sidetracked. Welcome to the forum again.
