Aug. 24th, 2013 @ 11:07 am Old forum is down
The hosting service we were using for the old forum has taken the forum down. They are requesting additional money for more bandwidth and since we are already in the process of moving, it seems like a waste to pay for something we are not going to use very long.

The QueueMistress and Movie|Girl are in the process of transferring the domain to the new forum (http://horatians.freeforums.net/).

If you have any problems, please contact us at horatians at yahoo dot com.

Hang in there, the move is almost complete.

Aug. 18th, 2013 @ 11:34 am Horatians.org is moving to new home!!!
After months of problems with the old forum which prevented many of our members from joining our company, the community is moving to a new home. The Queue Mistress set up a test forum for member to play here: http://horatians.freeforums.net/

Try it out and see what you think. You'll have to register for an account with ProBoards. You may not be able to get your desired boardname. If not, sign up as something else as your "global" account, and then you can sign up for an account just with Horatians that will be your desired boardname.

This is not a definite home unless it works for everyone and we all like it. But if it works out it will save us some trouble.

If you see ads, again, if we like the forum we'll pay to upgrade to get rid of them. Also we'll get horatians.org attached to it. But not till we decide this is our permanent port of call.

She has also set up a global email account for members to report problems. The address is horatians at yahoo dot com. However as we are still trying to sort things out, it may take a couple of days for one of us to respond to your emails.

If you are one who is still having problems getting into the old forum, try clicking on CTRL + F5 keys simultaneously (or equivalent if not using a pc). It has worked for some of the members having problems.

Thanks again for your patience while we work this out. We think it's time for us to move on and find a new solution.

I have communicated with M|G abut the account suspended problem and she said it is related to some changes she is making on the site to try to fix the ongoing problems we have been having. Unfortunately it will likely take at least all of today for the work to be completed.

Please keep checking here for updates or to report any problems once the site is back up.

Sep. 9th, 2012 @ 02:48 pm Problem getting into horatians
There are lots of people having trouble getting into horatians. It seems the problem started sometime yesterday. I have contacted Movie|Girl to let her know about it and hopefully she will be able to resolve it soon.

I only got the blank page a couple of times while navigating the site and doing a refresh or clicking on another link seemed to solve the problem.

Hang in there everyone!

Hi gang,

The title says it all. You should be able to get to the forum at http://www.horatians.org. Don't add the index.php.

Any recovered archives will be restored to a separate forum, where you'll be able to copy and paste for your own files.

Thanks for your patience.

Apr. 7th, 2011 @ 12:57 am Update on Horatians
Hi Horatians,

I spoke with Movie | Girl just now, and she is hard at work trying to get us up again. It will probably be a couple of days.

There was a DNS attack on the server on which the site was located. MG is going to move us to another server and try to reconstruct the database from backups. HOWEVER--it looks like we have lost significant data. Keep your fingers crossed, but do be prepared to have stuff missing when we are back up again.

MG asked me (repeatedly) to apologize for the downtime and the problems. On the bright side (and there is always a bright side): when we do come back we will be on a new server with the latest and most stable and robust server software, so it will be better. A little loss, but we will go on. Kind of like Horatio after being beat up by Simpson. ;-)

We will miss chat, of course, in the  meantime, but the chatroom will be back as well.

Hang in there, and I'll keep everyone up to date here and on Facebook. I've asked MG to post links to both pages on the main horatians.org page, so hopefully the lost wanderers will make their way here.

I wanted to check Horatians today - I check it at least once a day - and I just got a blue and orange screen with This account has been suspended in rather large letters. Link

Was it something I did? Has Horatians gone on the blink?? Don't people like me any more???

Anyone know anything about this?

Jun. 19th, 2010 @ 10:39 am 2010 Hornblower Convention in Mystic Connecticut


The registration deadline is fast approaching, so don't forget to make your mark by July 15th!!



This year's gathering is taking place in Mystic, Connecticut September 15-19.

The ship's officers have been hard at work planning lots of fun events including visits to Mystic Seaport, the Coast Guard Academy, and a sail on the Schooner Argia to mention a few. If that was not enough, an overnighter aboard the Seaport’s training ship, the Joseph Conrad is being offered as an extra option.

Be sure to check out the website for more information and hopefully we'll see you there.

Please help us spread the word to HH fans in other forums.

I'm glad I've found this group... I registered on the forum days ago and am still waiting for my activation. Please, if possible... the e-mail is mairetar(at)gmail(dot)com .

Well, about me... I love Pellew best, with the pretty Mr. Bush being a close second. But the whole series is so filled with male attractiveness it's hard to choose. :D I'm a Royal Navy fan in general. Thank to a certain Mr. Melville whose dark tale dragged me into this.

Because rohajavongareth (Alaniel to all horatians) is bored.

1. How often do you usually check horatians?

2. Do you miss it when it is down?

3. What do you do to pass the time when it is down?

4. Do you belong to other discussion forums or have cyber places you like to visit?

5. Do you blog? If so, what do you blog about?

You can answer in a reply to this post or in your own LJ.

Still no news about when horatians will be back. :(

Hi all,

Finally this LJ n00b has figured out how to post here. How are you all doing? I seem to be suffering from Horatians withdrawal symptoms. I keep checking the url at least once every day only to find that daft GoDaddy page. Now it says the domain has expired or something, but no stress, I know our admin wizzes will salvage our beloved forum :D

In the meantime, I was planning to go to the tall ships races in Den Helder yesterday, but the weather was awful plus I was dreading to travel six hours in me onesies to see the ships I'd already seen (lovely though they were). The Seadov will have to wait ;) So no new pics I'm afraid! But you could check this out if you want, they are the pictures I took when I visited the replica of the Dutch merchant ship Batavia: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=5817&l=dce5f&id=1186263982
A very fine ship indeed, too bad the original sank on her maiden voyage, off the Australian coast...

Hope to see you all on the boards soon!

Cheers, EzzieNL (aka GunnersGirl)

I think it would be fun if we have some fun here. Yeah, yeah, I would say half to 2/3rds only want to do Horatians stuff ON Horatians. It is like that old Crosby, Stills and Nash song - Love the One You're With. :D

There are a couple of cute ones out there right now. I like the ones with the icons, but a lot of us aren't icon crazy like me. I tell ya 100 icons is NOT enough! ;-)

SOOO --

Here is a quiz and the lovely part about LJ is that you can literally put the results in this space without just saying I am a Corvette (which my results showed when I took this quiz).

I'm a Chevrolet Corvette!



You're a classic - powerful, athletic, and competitive. You're all about winning the race and getting the job done. While you have a practical everyday side, you get wild when anyone pushes your pedal. You hate to lose, but you hardly ever do.


Take the Which Sports Car Are You? quiz.



Here is a little meme from one of the girls from my Smallville fandom svgurl
Ask me a question, and in return, you have to tell me something about yourself.

This is like getting to know more about my flist! Put your answers in a reply.

Lastly for this post - honestly, I should have done this as three seperate posts. What I like to call Question of the Day!

Name something (or someone) that you have just discovered in the year 2008 and say if this thing is a guilty pleasure, has brought you fun and are you glad you found it?

My questions rarely only have one part to them.

Hope to hear your answers and hope ALL the ones, who don't post much or DO (in my case) answer! ::BIG HUGS!!!::
