Title: Greetings after so long...
Post by ttwining on Dec 21st, 2009, 2:59pm

I can't believe it's been so many years, I think the Del-Rey boards had just gone monetary when I left here.

I haven't checked the boards yet to see if Jean and Arthur and the rest of the old crew are still here but - good on ya Webbie for keeping this fabulous place running!

I'd love to start working here again if that's okay. Maybe some kind soul would fill me in on what's happened here in the last - oh, say, four or five years? :-) Like who's published now, what happened to the spin-off sites, anybody famous yet? (certainly not me!) :-) I remember a few publishing ventures and new sites taking off back then...

Anyway, I always loved this community and look forward to playing here again.

In case no-one is still here I am Tom Twining, a middle-aged ex-everything, fifty year sci-fi fan, turned horse-farmer who loves to write - and I look forward to meeting you all.

All the best,
Tom Twining

Dear Tom; Hello and welcome back! Some of us old vets are still around -- I'm sure they'll be chiming in as they read your post. Horse farming? Some online gamer spam! Lucky you. What kind of horses do you have? I'm no longer editor of dear ol' AR. It's now in the capable hands of Gary Markette, with our beloved Webbie riding the control panels. As for me, I'm keeping busy at my small press publishing house, Drop in and say hi!
       Best wishes,
          -- Jean

Hey Tom,

Welcome back!

Yeah, I'm still here. Can't get rid of a bad penney.

Quite a few writers are still here.
Glad to see you back on the BBS!

Nice to hear you all! Glad that you're still here.

Holidays are running a DNS attack on my free time so I'm stalled for a week or two but I hope to rejoin the community in the new year. I am looking forward to it.

Merry Christmas if appropriate. Be safe and well. :-)

Latest thought:
I've learned, in the process of aging, that it isn't really important that Lazarus yet walks, but rather how often he is awake while doing it.

Hi Tom,
Four or five years? You must have been here around my time. I'm back as well, and it feels good to be 'home'.  :)
