Haven't been seeing him post for months.
Is he globetrotting again?
Anybody know?
He had a psychobilly freakout and like, splitsville baby.

<img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/dunno.gif" alt="Dunno" title="dunno" />
sure did, and it was like right outta the blue.

Cheers
His meltdown was odd and bizarrely quick.
He was a good poster in general, and then went banananoodles
out of nowhere, and ran over to phil Plait's forum to mix in
with the Bad Astro soup croutons floating over there.

I would imagine that he is quite welcome to return at any time.
That is his choice.to make.
Too bad about that for Barney. He was the one who originally directed me to this forum.
If only those who suffer such breakdowns went to a better place instead of a worse one as they often do......?
Well, I hope things turn around for him.
hi fsbirdhouse <img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/hi.gif" alt="Hi" title="hi" />
DJ Barney didn't just flip out suddenly...as seems to be the prevailing conventional wisdom.

Everyone knows how high-strung he is...I know which is pretty typical for many people...but it's not like he didn't telegraph some warning signs along the way......

I mean, he specifically asked if anyone knew of a doctor...I think to diagnose a negative reaction he had to a serotonin inhibitor drug.

Personally, I blamed his mentality on being British. The combination of "following orders" + "doing the right thing" is strikingly manifested in the supercilious and snobbishly twisted fastidious denouements of the English accent......and this trait comes through in their posts. I am well aware of the number of Brits on board, and I only brought it up as an over-the-top example of personal and cultural parochialism.

DJ's last straw arrived in a thread talking about cell towers and how a renegade technician went on a rampage destroying towers with a bulldozer(?). I detected he had an almost hysterical reaction to the notion that people take matters into their own hands....and then he was gone ever since......

Sooo......was it due to a lingering, yet persistent, cultural/DJ reaction to The Blitz...combined with EM saturation of an island nation???
or was he simply weak in the face of American cowboy mentality???
or a victim of socialized medicine???
l can easily understand how life in the currently Socialist surveillance state of the UK could drive one to utter insanity.

l wouldn't live there for all the tacos in mexico, and l have relatives in the UK.

I think it was the latter. He'd mentioned being forcibly hospitalized and drugged with SSRIs in the past, and as I recall, he was trying to get off the drugs.

And around the time of the cell tower thread, he got hysterical over some thread about the Zionazis or the Holocaust or something, and we all suddenly became anti-Semitic demons who might steal a tank at any moment and start toppling cell towers. <img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/lol.gif" alt="Lol" title="lol" /> Makes me wonder if he was getting off the drugs and just noticing for the first time the prevailing American cowboy mentality here?
He thought we had machine guns Lol
<img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/lmao.gif" alt="Lmao" title="lmao" />
A friend told me she was gonna run down the road screaming if she saw one more redhaired guy at the gun show with bad teeth, wearing overalls with one missing strap, cradling an Uzi.

what?
You mean ya'll DON'T ??

That was hilarious.
kalter you made me laugh out loud.

then "......l wouldn't live there for all the tacos in mexico, ..."
LOL

I did not realize that DJ had such deep problems
with the pharmatoxic drugs.

My sister prescribes that shit to her patients,
you should have heard her tonite after T-Day dinner
talking about "multiple therapies"
or in essence combining medications.

hey....a little Zoloft mixed in with your Paxil.....
ain't modern medicine great?.......<img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/yak.gif" alt="Yak" title="Yak" />
So far this is only a Two Beavis Thread.

Which is a bit disappointing.

Then there are the 'chemical restraints' as they're referred to in the nursing biz... no more of those nasty tie downs... no more of those personnel consuming 1 on 1's... baby.
Hey , It's a 4 Beavis thread now

*drops mushroom*
Ah! After reading all the posts here about Barney's meds, I see I may have been right initially.
Given the right cocktail, Barney may very well be globetrotting, regardless of how or where he is being restrained.
I always liked DJ,
everyone freaks out once in a while.

<img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/dunno.gif" alt="Dunno" title="dunno" />
yeah me too... I don't know what tripped his trigger, what was weird was that he turned it on us... that we were the dark ones... we're not DJ but we don't have any time left for defending ourselves from the obvious.

again the micro (internet realm) preceded the macro (so called real life playing out)... since DJ's ball of confusion enveloped him last summer there's been a whole mass of shaking going on with the masspeople trying to discern where the source of their gut feelings of doom are coming from.

They can't see-can't face the lies so they shoot to kill the messengers.. heads down everybody-that's what the dark ones do best- divert and destroy.
<img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/hmm2.gif" alt="Hmm2" title="hmm2" /> lotsa DJ Barney activity on the web......should be easy enough from internal clues to find him out at another site and...welll...you know...send someone in with a white flag and inquire WTF......

Yes...it would be a breach of internet protocol, but in this case, it might be worth pursuing for the sake of maintaining contacts at a certain level of space imaging proficiency.
good idea Kalter... can you do that? would you do that?
I shouldn't have edited my last post......

which added..."I would just as soon recuse myself from such a role..."

However...well...I'll think about it......
OK...during yesterday when I was "banned", I found a couple DJ sites. Internal evidence from both sites verifies the identity.
(I won't post the links...just in case some twisted malevolent "guest" wants to have some "fun")

Now I'm hashing out the best approach......without coming off like a panhandler

<img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/pennywise.gif" alt="Pennywise" title="pennywise" /> ...or worse......
Is DJBarney banned from this forum? Keith let Mighty Dawg/doink-head back on here, you know.
No, I don't think DJ was banned. He just pulled up and left over what he saw as negativity. While others of us see it as being informative, DJ saw it as being negative. We have to know what's going on, and, unfortunately, most of it is not so nice. We post that stuff to build awareness, not to bring others down, but he didn't understand.
well put Valentine. We are in overwhelming times, but if there's things others are sharing or doing that you can't handle, don't know anything about... why the accusations that the messengers are evil? deranged? all these slurs.

and he wasn't banned. DJ can arrive anytime he wants to.

That was funny, course it was
the first thing I read this morning too..

I mean the jilted panhandler part
hushing out the best approach are ye lol

I hope DJ's ok, nice of you to Kalter to keep him from the trolls
Does it look like he'd doing alright?
clowntown or worse sounds kind of ominous..

Divert and destroy and killing the messenger
Seems like more of same
Although, it seems perhaps some people are beginning to stir
from their slumber and are just waiting to hear confirmation
of the thoughts they have been pondering
from some one outside themselves...

Oh, and Gard to answer your question above about why

"We are in overwhelming times, but if there's things others are sharing or doing that you can't handle, don't know anything about... why the accusations that the messengers are evil? deranged? all these slurs."

Because when you tell the Heavy Truth or more importantly (especially in this case, I think)
when people can SEE your truth, and particularly if they
shockingly see what they perceive as good people suffering for their truth
It's just plain too heavy and makes them feel too vulnerable...
To make themselves feel safe they have to find
some fault, some action or word or something about you
that made you, in their eyes DESERVE it..
All done, unconsciously, so they might feel safe

I've seen this happen time and again in my own life

Hoping DJ's OK
Well hrm...to tell the truth...I still haven't made direct contact with DJ.

I guess I was hoping he's been lurking all along and that, despite the English tendency to eschew independent thinking, he would throw off the shackles of socialism and chime in anyway.

Britain must be like that old TV show, The Prisoner.
That's what Hillary meant by "It takes a Village".
Hey looking marvelous and obviously doing well
what a cool tool DJ's come up with Applause <img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/applause.gif" alt="Applause" title="applause" />

Good job Kalter

Quote:Description

DJ Barney has written a script that works with an entire database of all the Mars Global Surveyor images ever taken using the Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) instrument. The script is a World Wind Layer generator, a lot like the script used to show the latest earthquake data, for example. In this case though you provide your own data to construct into a layer. This list can be in any form as long as it contains the alphanumeric MOC image identification numbers. If these are there (in a directory listing, for example) then the script can make a layer from them that will have markers correctly placed on Mars for each ID, and a description and link to the image in the Planetary Data System.
