Re: EXPERIENCES AT ST. VEDAST (now St. James) AND THE S.E.S

I've had a request from a long-standing contributor to this forum, and to this thread, to 'unsticky' it. For privacy reasons I won't repeat his reasons in full but in essence it is so that he can 'move on' without this thread being a constant reminder to himself and others of his experiences. This j...

Re: "Site crashed" - UPDATED

Hi bluemoon, I don't know why that is, but I also had the same prompt once yesterday. I assumed someone has tried to hack into my account - but if you got it as well, maybe not! I've not done anything to the forum itself that should cause this. If anyone has repetitive problems with this please let ...

Re: Registration - read this if you have difficulties

With immediate effect I have made some changes to how new users register an account. The reason for these changes is a massive increase in the number of attempted spammer registrations on this site. If you wish to register a new account, you will need to follow the instructions in the email you rece...

"Site crashed" - UPDATED

A couple of users emailed me earlier today to report that the site had crashed. The board index appeared as normal but it wasn't possible to read existing posts or create any new ones. I'm not sure why this occurred, but the brilliantly helpful support staff at my hosting provider got it working aga...

Re: Style upgrade

I've now replaced the default style on the board with a new one. When I upgraded the previous style to its current release it no longer displayed properly. If anyone sees any strange results on their screen, please let me know. The board software allows users to choose their own styles. There are ov...

Style upgrade

You may have noticed that the look of this site is slightly different. This follows an upgrade of the default style to the current version, which was necessary for security reasons. However, the changes don't really improve the look of the site in my opinion, so bear with me while I tinker with it o...

Re: The Story of the School of Economic Science by B Hodgkin

Brian Hodgkinson was also a teacher at St James through the worst excesses of the 1980s, though to be fair he was one of the better teachers. However, this will obviously colour his account.

Re: DOES SCIENTOLOGY CONTROL 'Whyaretheydead' Domain?

Is Mike Gormez still alive, fit and well? Is anyone connected with this forum still in touch with him? As I mentioned in the welcome post after I set up the ses-forums.org domain almost two years ago (http://www.ses-forums.org/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=659), "Mike Gormez, owner of the old site, ...

Re: NYC School of Practical Philosophy

Welcome to the forum, Mikew. In answer to your email to me, there are plenty of posts relating to the New York School. Go to the main forum page and enter 'NYC' or 'New York' in the search box.

If you search while you are in a thread, it will only search that thread.

Re: Thank you for warning me...

You've probably sent your PM successfully. It stays in the Outbox until the recipient opens the message, and then it moves to Sent Messages. You can also update a PM until it is opened by the recipient. Hello, Please could somebody explain to me how to send a private message. I have written one and ...

Re: The SES and mental health problems

Hi Millie, Welcome to the forum - even though it has been a little quiet here for a while! It is said that one in four people suffer from some kind of mental illness in their lifetimes (including depression) but anecdotally I think the rate among ex-St James, St Vedast and SES members seems to be hi...

Re: St James "Philosophy Courses"

I can't read more than a few words of this shit without bad memories flooding back of those double Philosophy classes with Debenham droning on endlessly. During many of those classes he sent us down to the showers to wake us up, and always watched us intently as we stood in the showers. What a perve...

Re: Ficino School - New Zealand

I completely agree with everything Bonsai says, in particular about Mark Broadwith's explosive temperament and the connections between the SES and the children's schools. Imagine yourself considering a children's school where the chairman of the board of governors was Tom Cruise, the other governors...
