And what a ride it's been.

For the first five or so year I was mostly a lurker, spending most of my time on here looking at XP theming threads. Eventually I joined IRC, decided to subscribe, became more active. Then from 2007 until 2008 I was promoted to IRC mod. (Why I was demoted is not subject to discussion.)

Ever since I've been more or less active on forum and IRC. These days I'm not as active anymore - I started a new job at the beginning of this month and simply don't always have the time to post on the forum.

More has happened in the past year, like meeting one very charismatic Neowinian in person - which was a great experience and the best time I've had in ages. In fact getting to know said Neowinian is one of the best things to have happened to me - thank you for everything, A.

Here's to the next 11 years. Will Neowin still be around? Will I still be around? Time will tell.
