I signed up with AO forums back in 2003. I was reading hacking zines at a voracious pace, and hanging out with my local 2600 crew. I think I found a lot of textfiles through AO that helped me get started on my career.

I haven't really been much of a participant, but every year on my birthday I get a nice email wishing me well. That's nice, so this year I figured I'd pop in and say thanks for thinking of me (metaphorically) even though we haven't talked in the last 16 years or so.

... How's everyone doing today?

(EDIT: It's been 16 years and I still haven't learned how to spell properly.)
