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

    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.

    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?).

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

    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.
