I'm glad you've stuck around, Nate. Sometimes I wish I could have been there in the trenches with you and Kira to help fly the Powell flag when others doubted. big grin

Absolutely. smile

I know a few people weren't all that fond of his edgy, "extremely online" style of posting (he seemed very much like a 4chan/Reddit type, I mean his profile picture was Pepe the Frog lol). But nothing specific happened that would have prompted a storm-off. As he never made the more personal connection to the community that many of us have formed, it will remain a mystery for the ages.

Gotcha. Sounds like the Jack of the era lol. Yeah, would love to have found a way to weight posts by length that wouldn't have taken me until the heat death of the universe to calculate. tongue

I like seeing Jens and especially Yavar around Facebook so much. Wish they'd come back here as well, but it's nice to get a chance to interact with the Scoreboard OGs (yourself included!). And of course I got a chance to meet Brendan in the flesh a few years back, which was super cool!

Same here. This place is a blessed refuge from the big platforms and all their revenue-driven data-gathering bullshit. The odd depraved profile picture seems like a worthwhile tradeoff. It's like a tiny preserved corner of the pre-social-media wild west days of the Internet, when everything seemed more organic somehow even if it was rough as hell around the edges.

We are all uber-nerds at heart. big grin
