  Something I think is neat about this site is that due to the small community its kind of an archive for us. A lot easier to look here and see how I talked online 10 years ago (or whatever) than even facebook or some other garbage like that.
  
  So where are you all at now? I'm in NYC, working at a boring job for now, hopefully not too long. Bodybuilding at a lot more serious intensity than I was a few years ago, getting into some political stuff, and trying to get back into music whether its solo or with my old band.

  I haven't been on this website regularly since I was an annoying little snot in middle school. I was reminded of it today and find a post from this very day on it, isn't that crazy?
  
  I used to come here all the time and bug people about getting the legendary birds in RE League. This was a ton of fun, I hope it all stays online for as long as possible, it's a piece of the not-so-old but not-so-new-either web that I have a lot of fond memories of. I just got out of college and I'm a software engineer now, and I'm trying to use my newfound free time to get back to enjoying all the little things I used to in middle and high school, because that nerdy little kid part of me hasn't changed.

  I feel like the universe could do without an archive of my 15-year-old sentiments.
  
  Also I totally just thought about it today as well. Did something happen in the news? I was just wondering about the slow trickle of tournament points in BD refilling, and...

  FtRPG: 99% of the purpose of Reality's End these days. * sets a secret Pomegrenade because why not? *
  
  
  Funnily enough, nowadays, I'm all about getting the Legendaries in Go, which isn't so much a matter of effort but how many mostly jobless weirdos I can pool together at the same time.
  
  
  This site isn't going anywhere, ever, so long as the internet stays open and free. It would be nice to get back into fun non-Linux development at some point in the near future, but I'm guessing that won't really happen until I go the independent contractor route for the sole purpose of making a work/life balance that actually fits that description.
  
  
  Considering now nothing this site has been in the last few years, I'm surprised people do keep coming back. You certainly earned yourself some icecream, mates.

  I don't come in daily, but I do stop by this site every now and then to see if new posts like this one pop up. Always fun to see how things are going.
  
  I actually did try to find some "funny" topics and posts from years back but had trouble finding some specific ones, even with Google search. Ah well, I suppose the memories are good enough.
  
  There's also an Invisionfree forum that I reminisce on as well, but for that one I have to actually make a point to post every now and then, because if I recall correctly those forums get automatically deleted after a period of inactivity, and I don't want those memories to be lost forever either.
  
  And yes, I do enjoy the opportunity to use regular HTML tags in my posts again.

  Tsk. My computer breaks pretty much the day that fun chatter goes on at the land of Ref, and I only hear about it now? For shame! Dunno who is being shamed, but for shame!
  
  I'm still up in Michigan, working a job that started off not-boring but -- for the past few years -- has been really boring (there's no escape from it, Vinno~!).
  
  Funny that folks fret about the dumb teen-stuff they did. I luckily semi-dodged that bullet as the internet didn't really take off until I was well into those formative years, so it's only dumb stuff that I said in college that can haunt me.
  
  I still try to keep the spirit of R.E. alive. I look to be the next one to serve as GM in my gaming group, and it was requested that it be "lighter" and "more fun". So... I'm gonna try to do Rumbl-o-Rama.

  There was a two-week gap between the last post and this one, so I guess I'll go ahead and do it.

  I still poke around every so often too, this place is one of the last strongholds of a time the internet was free and not so corporate.
  
  Whereabouts in MI are you Goblin? My lovely wife, our kiddo, and I are living in Detroit these days.
  
  I'm still in school for computer engineering, but I'm going to take some time off to cash in on my IT experience, I've been managing all of the IT crap for this company for 3 years and they haven't given me a raise since I took the position. Flat Mouth

  Our IT guy just quit for being underpaid.
  
  He's in Mexico right now. Not sure how he managed that. Pretty sure it is temporary and he wasn't abducted.

  Speaking of non-corporate interwebs, W3C finally approved ActivityPub (or at least has started to recommend it). This is something I've been complaining for for a long time, since it just makes sense -- a decentralized social network.
  
  I don't even use social networks, but I almost want to code something to use ActivityPub just to use it.

  There -- oddly -- has been a history Mid-western presence on this site. Must be something that appeals to that type of person. Or, something in that Great Lakes water. I'll go with the latter, 'cuz of the chemicals an' all.
  
  I'd (actually) guess that the coasters are too "cool" for this type of thing while the farm-landers are too oblivious. Yep, we're in that sweet spot.

  I havenít been around here nearly as long as most of you guys, but honestly I like sites like this more than most places on the internet- those social media sites are so vast I donít even know where to start in terms of making friends and such.
  
  Incidentally, I also live near the Great Lakes, except in Chicago area rather than Michigan.

  New social media sites don't have the same aspects old forums had. You either have to come with your friends in tow, or there is no sense of community at all in the case of something like Reddit, which it is just dopamine-oriented engineering.
