TOPIC: Today is my ten year F:AT anniversary

Today is my ten year F:AT anniversary 06 Feb 2018 14:06 #263012

I was writing a nice long post about what it means to visit a site for ten years, but I'm at work now and am teaching in an hour, so there you go.
  1. I mostly use this site as budget social media, and gaming is secondary, or tertiary
  2. This was my first post: Mecha games
  3. If I have spent two hours a week here for ten years, then that comes out to 43 full days
  4. Thanks for all of the interesting content and discussions over the years. I've learned a lot, been entertained, and even gotten good home repair advice
  5. Everyone has been very generous with games too. Good prices, or free at times. I've tried to give back, and anything I've sold has gone towards food and bills, so you did a good deed regardless
Here is a current image of myself, taken with my $15 dumb phone.

Thank you for all of the good times.

I'm eating three dried apricots in your honor. I recently learned that each of these apricot slices is actually an entire apricot, which explains why they generate levels of toxicity that have been outlawed by the Geneva convention and the EPA (pre-Trump).

If you saw Call Me By Your Name, you'd take a break from apricots

Good on you, cranberries. I think I posted on the old Blog at least once. Maybe? I have post #352 here, from January 2008. Crazy!

Apropos of Mike's post, my daughter told me how someone brought a Guns n Roses bobblehead to her music teacher but he said it didn't look much like his brother. Mr. McKagan's brother.

"Duff McKagan is Mr. McKagan's brother?"
"Yes? I think I told you that."
"I think I would have remembered."

Jeb, that reminds me of a guy I used to work with at a movie theater just after college. We were chatting in the break room, and he mentioned that he had an uncle who had done some voice acting work. He also mentioned that he had been on Family Guy. Since I know my voice actors pretty well, I asked what his name was. Turns out his uncle was Ace Frehly, and he had been on Family Guy when KISS had been a guest star.

Happy anniversary!

It'll be a few more months before the 10 year anniversary of my fiery introduction to F:AT.

If it was how I remember it was, I'm glad to see you're still here.

This inspired me to check when I started posting here. Turns out I just hit the 9-year mark. I had thought it had been longer, since I remembered when Barnes first wrote about BSG, and that was fall of 2008. I must have lurked for a while.

I went back and read the thread all the way through. It was mesmerizing. It escalated so quickly I barely kept up.

Ya'll were a jumpy bunch back in the day.

Let's not make this thread about me. Cranberries is awesome and I love to read all of your posts. You cut right to what's real, man.
