I realise now, after all these years, that I've been a huge jerk in terms of not keeping up with people from the old boards. University sort of overtook everything and I guess at the time I was still getting the hang of interacting with human beings in general.
If there are any of you out there who would like to get in contact again, even if it's just a few words on how your life is going, give me a yell. Some of you I still hear from often but there are a large number of people that I really should have made the effort to keep up with, but didn't.
also big shoutout to NewHaights if he's reading this! Haven't spoken to you in forever..
