That is the power of Internet forums. They bring people with a specific desire together and with their varied skill sets improve something for which they have a passion.

SL ten years ago was a very different place. Hell, the World was a different place! Considerably more of a live and let live attitude. Considerably less snark. A LOT more active posters since the competition for eyes was less. I still don't think stream of consciousness applications are as powerful at creating understanding as threaded forums. On FB all it takes is one or two a$$hats getting into it and all the good stuff is impossible to find.

I really miss (in no particular order and woefully incomplete) Biffskater, Smartin, Bill, Tremor, Rokdaddy, Rokwel, RogZilla, Mellian, HotLips, Takenbylovely, Salamamda, Darkjester, HK47, Slowsk8, Fanjet8, A-town Sk8ter, Live2sk888, Gle8, rsfaze, Christopher-T, bpike503, MFND, Jsmooth, Pitbike120, BanjoKablooey, Machine, Kennedy, Vitaman, Fresh Eddie Fresh and of course the old unvarnished Okie. Armadillo of course stands alone. There are SO many more! I'm really glad Doc and Danny are still here...

I still get in 6-8 hours of rink time a week. It's SO MUCH FUN! Age and injuries have slowed me a bit but I intend to continue skating as long as possible.

Thanks for a trip down memory lane!

Thanks for the shout out wired!
Yeah, it was a def a different place back then.
