Hi amdxborg, good to see you here.
Much has changed: BMC is not around almost at all - I've seen him once lurking and not posting, but some other old timers are still going strong: assimilator1, smoke (now and then), markfw, GLeeM, Pokey, VirtualLarry, Neurodog, geecee, RoodyToody, Fardringle and som others.
Happy holydays to you stay healthy and well!

Well, I'm playing with the Big Boys now. Quite a culture shock, but it feels strangely satisfying to be a small fish in a big pond again. Looking to help with FB, Pentathlon, PG Challenge Series, etc. Willing to devote my relatively meager resources wherever they will best serve the TeAm goals. Would love to be involved in strategy sessions for FB and the Pentathlon after I've proven myself for a while. As an old football coach in these parts used to say "the TeAm, the TeAm, the TeAm!"

Well hello there! @Skivelitis2 Welcome!

We went from meager to Big Boys only in the last year or two. We are still getting used to all the eyes being upon us, and dirt being flung at us on occasion. We would love to have you along for the ride. :)

I've been known to shower at least once a month, a little dirt flinging never bothers me :)
Thanks to all for the welcome!

Hi, welcome back :)
May I ask what your previous forum name was?
TAandy.

And just realised that I've been using gmail for so long that I forgot I used a different address when I originally signed up and the old account may well still be active.

I never claimed to be clever lol

Edit: And maybe not :(

I really should change my picture ... that was 23 years ago.

That photo was taken when at age 60 I made 1st String All-American NSSA (Skeet). Due to my bad back I had to "hang up the cleats" if you know what I mean.

That's when I showed up here.

My greeters were WIZ and ASSIMILATOR1 who are still and always my very best close friends. I still count my times here at the very top of my life memories.

Thanks to all of you (too many to list) for allowing me to part of your number.
