Are we still alive?

The GD family has been running for over 2 decades now. Did anyone become famous? Did anyone become a millionaire on bitcoin? Start up rebels in Silicon Valley? Someone become a doctor? Local, state or federal politician? Visit every country on earth or been to space? Are we all just dying off, now too old with worldly care and are just waiting for the end? I miss the righteous angst of naive digital infants we feigned to be. Widdy gone, Viper gone. I just lost my hair.....unfortunately TX sun is brutal. Back to slumber.

I am so important I feel the need to let it be known like a liberal discovering the internets for the first time. Uh hur hur hur. I also wash myself with a rag on a stick.

Sign me up for "just waiting for the end".

The search for the ultimate signature continues apace. I have journeyed from the peaks of Nepal to the depths of oceanic trenches. I have crossed deserts, jungles, swamps, savannas, steppes and frozen wastelands. I have consulted with seers, swamis, sages, scholars and savants. The peregrination proceeds purposefully.

Still around, going a little bit loopy maybe but still holding together.

I don't think I've quite reached famous, or even gotten close, but I do get to work with yahtzee of Zero Punctuation fame so.. ...yay?

I just "discovered" this forum 10 minutes ago cause I lost all my favorite skins and had to re-download so I googled and this place came up. Then I discovered I have been a member since 2002 and haven't posted in 3 and a half years. I was drunk and high a lot back then so its no big surprise. But nothing will ever replace Winamp as my favorite music player on my PC, nothing else even comes close to how awesome it is.

When I got my first PC on Win 95 I can remember 3 things I discovered that blew my mind, Winamp, MIRC and ICQ (Wait.. you mean I can use ICQ to transfer MP3s to to and from people on my contact list?? Even if one song took a half-hour it still blew my mind, the song was mine forever!)

Anyhow, I have added this forum to my favorites and will try and come around at least every year or so. keep up the good work.

hgnis, are you still with duet?

ShyShy and Shy Jr have visited their folks in Killeen (near Ft Hood) a couple of times in recent years; if you're still in TX when they and/or I next visit, we should meet up.

No fame or infamy to speak of on our part. We had our 15-year wedding anniversary yesterday. I still don't know what I want to do when I grow up.

I know that I am alive, when the physical pain kicks in

But then again, we are all a part of a computer simulation with poorly designed characters

Congratulation on 15! Duet and me hit ours at the start of the year. 2 little tornadoes running around the house keeping things exciting here. Working late and busy not living on the government dime makes it feel like only days have passed. Not much to do in Houston but if you guys are passing through I’ll buy lunch. No Outback.

I am so important I feel the need to let it be known like a liberal discovering the internets for the first time. Uh hur hur hur. I also wash myself with a rag on a stick.

I just got reminded that I've been a member of the Winamp Forums for 18 years.

I've been using the same audio player for two decades, across eighteen different computers, and twelve different OS's.

I don't think there's been a single bit of software I've used more consistently.

[edit] And apparently this is my 8000th post here.
