Sort of the same here, but my habit is pretty weak at this point. Sometimes I just need to electronically vent on Whatcha Doin' in a way that I would feel uncomfortable doing on Facebook or the Twitter (I apologize for the increasing suckiness of my posts).

I still remember, though, getting Foo advice for my first job back in 2005/6 from some pretty cool people. And the advice certainly paid off!

Sianelle is such a wonderful person and hope that all is well with her as she follows her life's calling and perhaps one day she will pop in to see how folks are doing here.

I stay in touch with quite a few people who have left or only pop in from time to time through other means and think I was happiest when Lamplight returned and let me know he had moved to the PNW as this is a guy who could be my long lost brother and someone who is a true gentleman.

I still get quite a few messages asking how donnamb is doing as many knew we were close but perhaps did not know we were more than just close... we got married in August and am so looking forward to seeing the person I miss the most in this world on Tuesday as we have been apart for nearly 4 months.

We should have most of the immigration stuff done before I come back and then we are hoping she will be able to move here as soon as possible.

USAZorro. I think that's his name. He was always super nice to me. I screwed up one night and he had to award ban points to me. The guy actually apologized for having to do it. I also know that Tude thinks the world of him.

I haven't seen him since I was let back in. I hope all is well in his world.

All you seppos and seppettes forget the rampaging and irreverent Australian gang that used to rip through BikeForums. Controversy, entertainment, bewilderment all mixed up in a whole gamut of knowledge and crappiness.

Patience is a virtue, and you've both got it in spades. Machka and I had to wait nine months. It was worth it...

Couchy, thanks for asking. He's doing well, he's very busy. I just chatted with him the other day. I'll let him know you thought of him.

Three posters:

JoeyBike, whose adrenaline-stimulating helmet-cam videos documented rush-hour commutes through downtown New Orleans. (JoeyBike, the bane of all red light worshipers in A&S.)

BananaTugger, a witty kid with a taste for expensive knives, and mad skilz in something or other.

And, at the risk of getting an infraction for even mentioning his nic (apparently), Ryanf.





Edit: correct spelling of BananaTugger's nic.

53-11alltheway Ben Cousins and Rayne. Most of the people I miss were either Level-21 Trolls or people who were....um, funny without really meaning to be, like Merton. Stacey was a good lady. She was abrasive on the forums sometimes but if you talked to her one-on-one she was a sweetheart. I still think of her every time I see a rat.

MsVicki took several of her characters with her, most notable of which was the Underwear Nazi.
So, that was Ms. Vicki

and we had so many good discussions. However, some folks took us seriously ( humor impaired cyclists ) so we had to stop.
