    Awww I've been here since May 2000. I wish in that time I had taken the chance to post more and develop some nice bonds through here. Ah well. :)

    May 2000 and I'm still a fleet captain. Sheesh.

    ^You're not a million posts away from a promotion to Commodore. But then again I've been at my rank for quite a while.

    Rode the purple trains between Lund and Malmo, visited a friend in Lund back then.

    I don't think I'll be around any fora much longer.

    Clearwater's a good place. One of my dearest friends lives in that area.

    I could have sworn i reg on this board roundabout 1999 when i first got the internet to read stuff about Star Trek Voyager, and i am sure i also posted stuff and used the gaming forum a lot, but my date says December 2002.

    Either i am going mad, or i have gone mad.:drool::lol:

    I think that some older accounts were deleted at some point? I seem to remember my original account being deleted at some point (along with other users and posts) and I had to register again with a new one?

    Yeah, i seem to remember something about moving the board and a message appearing when you logged in, or something like that way back, but i was so new to the internet i think i dismissed it as not for me or i really had no idea what it was all about.

    The internet seemed so much more complicated way back then.:lol:

    I've had the exact same Trek BBS account since the afternoon I first joined back in the spring of '01. If there were original, old school accounts deleted at some point back in the day it either happened during at some point before I joined the board or it didn't affect me. I don't remember older accounts being purged nearly as vividly as the Great Crash of 2002 that laid waste to the old database and caused the irretrievable loss of about four months' worth of posts and accounts from that time.

    ^Perhaps the Great Crash did case a few accunts to be deleted, but I suspect that, that would only apply to accounts created within that 4 month period as there would be no back-up of them to restore.

    Hey Eddie, long time. LOVING it so far.

    Nice T'Babe. See how ya are. Move all the way down here to be closer and you up and leave. :p Hope N.C. is treating you well, and hope the family is doing good.

    Thanks, I'll try and drop in a little more often now.

    It all happened at the end of the "Troll Wars" somewhere around '01-'02. TNZ was train wreck and there were 'Multiples' galore. I don't recall anything official ever being stated, but when I took break over Christmas in '02, my original account had poofed by the time I came. People serious about posting on TBBS re-registered, but most of the Trolls started their own board.

    You probably weren't hanging out much in TNZ yet. The "Crash" was bad. The Purge was worse. Due to it, I didn't really venture back into TNZ until about two years ago IIRC. The Troll Wars were an Ugly, Ugly time around here. But that's all ancient history, and then along came Bonz to keep the ship righted. :devil: :techman: :beer:
