We'll see if rainmaker gets involved to reawaken it.

You guys have been around so long, I'll bet there are many
you miss. I can see from reading thread that there were
some really fantastic discussions.

yeah. I recently had an acquaintance on another forum die, and it made me very sad. I had never met the man, hadn't even exchanged email with him, yet, I felt/feel the loss.

the internet is a very interesting place.

It may sound trite, but it is sincere: I am sorry for your loss.
Yes the internet is really interesting as I am find out.
I am really enjoying this forum.

...on that subject, I wonder whether Boards like this one devolve as flickr/tweeter/linkedin/myspace/classmates.com et al gather followings. They're slicker, glitzier, and I worry about our members drifting over, devoting more time there, at our expense.

Check your own behavior and see if my fears are groundless on not ?

I guess I did not know anything happened on Flickr other
than the storing of pictures of which I have about 8, I believe.
I am not interested in glitz, it is the discussion on
words I like, so I don't find myself guilty of the drift
you mention. But I suppose if other things occur there
like "comments on You Tube", etc,. then I would suppose
you could be right in your assumptions. But that "stuff"
does not interest me.
Good point, however.
