Re: Any old timers still around?
The Admirals' Lounge used to be a hive of frenetic activity just a few years ago. We had several pages of current threads that were being posted in at any given time and the traffic in and out of the AL was constant. It was a happenin' spot on the boards, that's for sure.
Things have slowed down a whole lot since then. I believe that right now there's just one page of threads in the AL menu and it's not even three-quarters or even two-thirds full. Activity over there has really trailed off in the last couple of years and I don't think there are more than just a few active threads at any given moment. Still, it's a place with a whole lot of fond memories.
I use to participate a lot in the lounges but lately I rarely post at all. I'm most active when I'm on vacation, that's because the wife won't let me do anything but relax.
