When did everyone first meet?
The thought struck me that being on MacAddict seems like forever ago and that i've "known" some ppl here for what I would consider a long time.

I sometimes think the same thing. I remember Gippy participating on MacAddict forums before we were married. That was 16 years ago. We got to hang out with roo, smaps, and Halbie in 2004, and we met and had a nice lunch with Jeh at least six years ago now. Crazy.

hmm. I don't even remember. I found the MacAddict forum through the magazine, but I can't tell you how long ago that was. I think at least ten years?
My logic is infallible. Resistance is futile.

MAF! While roo and I were still dating.
Tito, when he came to Providence for college. Wrk and halbie and geesie and freak, and someone from Canada and sadly I cannot remember his name, but I think he was traveling with his girlfriend and possibly grandmother. Ok I think it was akinata.
Got to go to Halbie's house once (no winter stalker was there). Gip and Puddles in Pennsylvanie, super memorable and fun. Last person I met was beddie.
Shoot mister.e, you are not far. There's really no excuse why we can't all meet up, hop on a train and pay ridiculous money and go see Hamilton.

At this point you'll have to pull a heist to get in to Hamilton.

I met Gippy for lunch in Denver once. I was not on top of my game that day. He paid for lunch. Really sweet guy.

Oh, and I was on MacAddict too, back in the day... Can't remember if I went by fredges or Earl Grey...

I feel like I'm staring at the fence of an inside joke and wondering why there's a fence here.

Robert B. is the only one of you I've met in person, but when I was in Morro Bay, I did attempt to meet WindowsBreakerG4 for tacos. It never happened, though.

I remember meeting Gippy. That was probably when I infected him with the ball cancer.

Of course.  It wouldn't have been gay otherwise.
