I don't think I ever participated in it, but I do remember that thread. Long time no see!

Evening KGib. How goes?

I think there've been a few variants of that thread over the years.

Re: Any old timers still around?

I remember. I'm a very old timer. In fact, I was around when the boards operated on nothing more than the UNIVAC computer system, a bunch of punch cards and a very exhausted white rat running inside a wheel.

Re: Any old timers still around?

It's a weird time to ask since you have to hunt for people's names (since we have Halloween names, you have to look in location). I've been here officially since 2003 (in reality, I registered just before the great board crash, had my account erased, and re-registered). Even though that's almost 10 years, I don't consider myself an old-timer. Maybe there needs to be more than one term. I can be an old timer, but other people can be really old timers (ancient timers?).
