    It Feels Like a Party..

    Is this the way most forums are in their early weeks? If not, I like the atmosphere on this site; and let's keep it up.
    I hope thar the camaraderie continues.

    If you come to a fork in the road; take it, and then put it down so someone else can use it.

    I have no clue. I've never done anything like this before. It's fun though, isn't it?

    Can't be the quality of the mods...

    I don't want to analyse it too closely but it feels like there's an established community being united with old friends who are coming in from the cold and that can't be hurting. We are getting a chance to do this thing again from scratch with lessons learned- members and mods alike - and that's some heady stuff.

    Plus no forum ever started off with Geoff at tiller. I'm not sure if that's exciting or terrifying.

    Geoff is an owner here. Be afraid. Be very afraid.

    If you ever wondered what the Big Forum was like back in 2002-2003, this is it. We were so small that when we had a crash of software back in 2005, we got everyone to re-register. Imagine doing that today.

    I feel like I'm in a college reunion, meeting long lost friends!

    With the exception of M. Montaigne I'm not sure I'd want to go to college with this lot....
