Shout out to us, peeps - 05/26/12 04:42 PM

It's been more years than we realize, and here we are. Still. In spite of. Regardless. No matter what. God willin' and the creek don't rise. 4freakin'ever.

OK, Neil gets a huge shout out, 'cause we were seriously circling the LeDrain once upon a time. He pulled us outta that. Stan made some ultra cool friends. No surprise. I actually "talked" to Stan, briefly, back in the day. He was remarkably responsive and totally hip. No Surprise.

So. Here's to us. We are ones of a kind, peeps.

Rock On, Us ~ We Freakin' Rule, Peeps

We do rule, add my voice to the shout out.

Many of us here have known each other starting January '99? I think. We started in the MacCentral forums and migrated to MacMinute when MacWorld chewed up and spit out MacCentral then shut the forums down. 13 years is a long time in internet time.

Thanks again Neil for keeping Stan's legacy and our home powered up. cool

Thanks guys -- and I hope those of you in the US are having a great holiday weekend (and those outside the US are having a great weekend!)

We really need to say thank you to our moderators. Frankly, without them, this place would be a mess and undoable. Jim, MacGizmo, and those from the past including John Rougeux -- thank you.

I stumbled into MCF in 2000, if my feeble memory serves me, when I was working second shift and needed some company when I got home at 2 AM (didn't want to wake anyone). It certainly has been a long strange trip, hasn't it? wink

"He'll always be Reboot no matter what he calls himself. grin"

Too true Bozo. I know several "real names" here, but the name I see to the left in every post is who they are to me.

I am still around too.

I think my first post at MC was about getting OS 8.5 for $29 with my academic discount.

I just happen to find this while listening to some music I have not heard in about ten years...brings back some memories of some fun posts!
