    Webby insists the site is older than this, but October 9th 2002 was the day SJ returned from the cyber-rubble of the post-Anon3:42 apocalypse, complete with registration and the life-altering PM function. I'll never forget the exotic weirdness of seeing that little note, 'You have 3 messages!' The first from mwm, the second from StanBelindaCarlisle, and the third from the guy who Boomed into me at Stan's a few nights earlier during the ALDS in New York. That third message was really, really good--happy anniversary to us too, baby.

    No clue what we all could have accomplished over the last four years if we weren't all glued to these blue and white rectangles, but it couldn't have been as much fun as this. Hard to imagine a world without all of these great friends, each and every one an expert in every subject known to mankind.

    Thanks, Webby, for the wild ride. Don't be surprised if one day some little kid comes up to you and tells you his name is Webby too...it's the least any of us could do. :-*

    I've been here about 18 months. Happy birthday, SJ, and thank you, truly, to the owners of this site. Provided me days hours of great fun and insight.

    My four year anniversary is next week. God only knows how much of those four years I've wasted here.

    And I'm a better person for each and every minute I've spent here.

    whatever happened to StanBelindaCarlisle?

    And Boom, I hope you're still not pissed that I sent 21 her first PM.....as I've explained to you countless times before, you and 21 had just met and you were still a few weeks away from becoming the board "couple". I sent 21 a friendly note....nothing more. Christ....it's been 4 fuckin' years man...let it go!

    StanBelinda is still around. Still the best game we ever played here...probably should start that one again in honor of the birthday gala.

    As for your first note to me....I turned it over to the police, but never showed it to Boom. Probably helped that you changed your name....

    I first registered this domain on Oct. 18, 2001.... the site has been through a lot of changes since then.
