So I was bored tonight, and noticed that I had a URL associated with my profile, and I was like "wtf is that"... so I clicked it and realized that it was a website I used to run and shut down about 5 years ago and that's when I realized that I haven't even updated my profile in at least that long, lol....
So then, the notion hit me, and I looked over at my avatar, and I realized that I've been a member here for over 5 years, and I've only posted 350 times, lol... which I'm pretty sure would make me one of the consistently slowest long-term forum contributors around these parts --- should I be proud? I mean... that's 70 posts a year. That's a post every 5 days, lol.... but at least I've been consistent! What can I say, at least I can backup my claim that I'm not a post-count ho.
So anyway, then I got to thinking... just how freakin' long have I been a member here...
Then I got to thinkin, how freakin long have I been doin this Pacer forum thing, period, and I realized something:
I can't remember.
I *know* that I started on IndyStar, but I cannot, for the life of me, remember when. I know it was *at least* before the year 2000, because I remember cruising the forum at work at a job I had and left about 10 years ago.
I remember going through a number of forum "upgrades" and forum moves on IndyStar.
I remember that it was fairly often that groups of folks split off to various forums, including this one, and although I came over and created a profile on this site when y'all created it, I actually stayed at IndyStar for the most part. But that forum became a troll-infested noobie ground after Artest wreaked his havoc @ The Palace, and I couldn't take anymore of it, so I hopped on over here for good (and I'm still here, so I guess that's sayin' somethin, lol)
So anyway... I know I'm kinda the "dude who rarely talks, has been around forever and a day, and yet no one really knows", but I do recognize that some of you started with me way back in the day at IndyStar... and was wondering if any of you old schoolers could remember a "timeline" of sorts over the years on IndyStar, and the other various failed crossover sites, and even this site's history... because I inadvertently turned down memory lane in my wandering around, and it's a long yet mostly empty street the further I go down it, lol.
