Any of the Ancients Still Around?

Been a few years. Decades. Anyone I know still show their wrinkly faces around here?
I used to spend how much on 40K?

Slim to none I'm afraid. Rasmus even got married and headed off beyond the rim with the rest of the first ones.

If you can't make fun of something, it's probably not worth taking seriously.

You have to love the smell of science in the morning. It smells of learning.... or perhaps a gas leak.

Afraid not, not for the past eight or more years. Now and again an old timer will pop up and say hello before returning to their slumber. There's not a lot of us left from 2002 or prior.

Back to the Infinity Circuit so quickly?

It was nice meeting you, Warhoon. Afraid I only joined in 09 or thereabouts.

I'm still hurt, man!  It's been 6 years since you last crept out of your hole and still no mention of me.

*sigh*

Dood! I hereby mention Lomandalis!

Apparently I know GrimSqueaker, too, but he's changed his name and I'm not making the connection....

I've had numerous different names over the years. Perhaps Barr'el O'Rum?

If it helps GrimSqueaker used to be called Cimex Digitus back in 2002 and Fio'ul Must'eli'dae in 2003.

That was my joining name. It didn't last too long.

About a year from what I can gather then you changed it to Fio'ul Must'eli'dae in 2003. Warhoon was most active 2002 to 2004.

I took a year off EldarOnline at some point in there. The transition to 40kOnline happened during my sabbatical.

Makes me nostalgic for the days that EldarOnline and 40k.ca were the same forums, but accessed through two different websites.  If you wanted Eldar forums, you had to go through EO, and if you wanted everything else it was 40k.ca
If there is anything that recent politics has taught us, it is that quotes taken out of context can mean what ever you want them to.

Same. I'm not the most prolific post but I've been on here for nearly a decade and a half. This is the single forum I have been active on (on-and-off...) for the longest time.

Isn't it always great when you can use a decade as a time reference for something?

I think I first joined back in 2000 when I found the original EldarOnline board.  That black and yellow monstrosity that could only be navigated if you had installed a pop up blocker.

I've been here at least a decade, but I still seem to be a newbie compared to a lot of you guys. I'm post-EldarOnline, at any rate.
