    I joined AD on March 1, 2003 a full 14 years ago, and I'm still here. A lot of people we've all met on AD have come and gone and some have left us forever such as SubaPete. I sometimes wonder how many of the old school are still drifting through, lurking, but never stopping to say hello, and how many like Pete will never return. I have a list of old AD friends who I would like to see pop in to let us know that all is well, and drop aline or two in a post. So Praetor, are you still dumpster diving, still taking photographs, and are you still building new dream machines? I know you're still lurking form time to time, so drop in and let us all know what's happening.

    If anyone else has an old AD buddy they'd like to hear from, then pop a post and call them out.

    Gee, I thought my wife was calling me...... She always said that when I croaked, she would have me cremated, put my ashes in an hour glass, turn me over and say "now, work, you lazy bum!!"
    I have 12 years in and only joined to harass brobear... lol

    Brobear's final falling out was with me after I got tired of defending him, and I haven't heard from him since and that was quite a few years ago. A Forum is great for focused discussions such as technology as long as people keep their private lives out of it. But once the doors to our private lives are opened and placed on display a lot of people tend to polarize and move to their perspective corners.

    Algebra goes all the way back to the Ancient Babylonians or more than 3000 years, and the Pythagorean Theorem, documented by Pythagoras, was in use 2500 years ago. Other than that how are you zippyd?
