Re: Any old timers still around?

thanks for the tip, Wacky! I had no idea that REFCL is still online. Last time I looked (some 8 years ago) it was a rather crappy place, full of flamers and trolls.
Most TKers have different names now and are therefore difficult to recognize. Except for a69aries, perhaps - his spelling was always rather... well, let's say 'individualistic'
I think I'll propably rejoin Lonaf, depending on who's still active there. There are a few people I don't want to meet as they've behaved like absolute idiots in the past.
I wasn't aware that there's still a TK chat. Is there a java applet like the one Terran runs or is it accessible only by a mirc client?

And in case someone misses Daystrom: he sold his appartment some time ago and moved closer to his son (who by all accounts is one of the best students of the year, making his dad almost exploding with pride). For years Day has been suffering from heart troubles, but they have grown very much worse lately. Frankly, I don't think he has more than another 6 or 7 years. I'm scarcely in direct contact with him as he's hardly ever online now and he's way too lazy to snail-mail, but we call each other on the phone, occasionally, and his family and mutual friends keep me updated.
If someone would like to send him greetings or a get well message, please PM or mail them to me and I'll print them and forward them to him.

I registered back in September 2001. I never was very chatty, but I came here almost every day to see what people were talking about. Fun crowd here. Then I fell away for a few years.

Today I logged in to post a comment in another forum. First post I've made in a long time.
It's good to see a post from you!

I'm not saying some of us are old, but there's a reason we've been called "Ulysses Grant"...and not because of our rampant and embarrassing alcoholism. Congrats, Roshi!

[scrooge] humbug! [/scrooge] We're far from being old fossiles! We're like a good wine: we get better with age!
As for myself: I intend to live forever.

I'm still around. Mainly reading and lurking these days, but I'm still around. I consider myself an old, old timer.

I've got 13 months on you, noob.

But any fellow goat is all right in my book. Good to see you around.

Re: Any old timers still around?

hey! More familiar names! YAY!!

Niorah, you certainly are a creature of habit. You even have the same avatar

Ahem, there are only 11 months between August 2001 and July 2002, brother
Btw, seeing your signature quotes - Holdfast is another oldtimer I haven't seen in this thread yet.
