Not always. Preys-World and 4chan are the same age, with a couple of months. You decide if having millions of posts a day is a good thing ¬_¬

Ah right missed this reply, the one game I'm playing properly isn't installed on both PCs I use all the time so I'd been logging into Steam maybe half the time I used to. That won't change for another month with the job.

However I did just watch someone on Youtube playing Dead Air and was reminded of the good times so tempting to reinstall L4D2 and blaze through those original maps again.

That's all I will ever ask of any of you because that's all I ever ask of myself when I log in each and every day.


Tweeted about the forum today when some smartarse on YT implied I'd never been part of any online community, turns out the forum has handily been running longer than either of them were on Youtube but whatever, if we have old members coming back that's as good as new ones now (maybe better) for me anyway.

No problem at all, mate. It's good to see you posting again these days :)

I often intend to post about something and then forget by the time I am at my computer, mostly due to being pretty busy and/or knackered. It is good to see so many long term folks still around to this day, or even in some cases returning! I've read the forum for almost a decade, but it became even more of a regular thing when I signed up back in '09.

[EDIT Hang on Phil, I didn't mean you it was someone completely different], despite having more ideas re the forum etc (which I have to PM you about in fact) I've accepted that people will join if they want to join and then lurk without posting if they want to lurk. I don't have any control over that, is all I meant, though I probably should've worded it better.

Alright mate, nice to be back and seeing how so many of the old guard have kept on trucking... with the same avatars and sigs no less, hehe. I really miss my old applachia phBB theme, but other than that feels very homely!

How about you? Are you still doing your sick illustrations?

I had a few spare minutes at work and had a look at the <forgotten name of website - something like way back when machine. It basically has cached pages from yonks ago that you can browse>. Had a look at preys world back in 2003. Not much has changed. :)
