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.
I hear that same white rat is now the foreman for the GNC foods website.

Hi there! Hey, I think I made that card, wow, it's been a loooooong time, I did not even remember it!

There are lots of old timers around, stay for a while and you'll see many familiar names.

Been wondering that myself. Been years since I was here regularly. Tend to just lurk every now and then, post every few months. All the usernames are new and frightening.

Been here awhile, 10+. Got hooked on Facebook to keep in contact with seasonal working friends, so drop in here only occasionally.
Think about you all most around 9/11 as I found out what was happening on this site.
Hello to all, later. AO51

Re: Any old timers still around?

I joined up during the Great Voyager/Enterprise("Series V") Membership Surge during the spring and summer of 2001. Next April marks my 12th anniversary on the board.

When you have one series ending and another, even more ambitious one just a few months from getting underway that's as ripe a time as any to get onboard at a site like this. It was a time that the forums didn't experience before and haven't seen the likes of since.

Re: Any old timers still around?

You know i wonder if the member number goes up sequentially, as that might give us an idea for the oldest member. As if they are an idicator the lower the number the longer you've been around.

Re: Any old timers still around?

My 8th anniversary is coming up this Hallowe'en. Not quite as old a timer as many, but I can still keep ticking away.
Plus, I've not always posted here constantly, and I've not always had this username (but many of you all knew that anyway ).
