    Quick! Someone sum up the last 6 years of ChitChat history!

    I haven't been here regularly in a loooooong time. The last big thread I watched was that guy's "AI" thread where he kept posting about his AI that was essentially a text box and some buttons.

    What's been going on?

    Code:
    Select sum(history) From ChitChat Where Posted > DateAdd(Year, 6, GetDate())
    When one of my minions says, "Hey, he's just one guy, what can he do?" I say "This"... and shoot them.

    Oddly, I was just thinking about reviving the AI thread, but I figured it would not be a popular move. I didn't have anything to say, I just thought it would be interesting. It's kind of like throwing sodium metal into water: You do it just to see what happens.

    I never suspected you for an arsonist!

    About 6 to 8 years ago there was a real community here. At some point in the last 3 or so years, it stopped compiling any more and was quietly shelved. It's the way it would have wanted to go.

    Glad to be a part of it. Not quite dead, yet, though.

    While I still have a breath in my body, there will be a community here. I don't think that will be long though as evidence has it, crptcblade is fast closing in on my secret location.

    That's ok, just keep plenty of paper around. After all, from his posting, he seems to have a real attraction to rocks. I'm sure that's what he'd choose as a weapon.

    That guy from India, you mean Yash? OrdinaryGuy? Did he get married? And disappeared? Hmm.. I have been away too long.

    Heck, it could be me too, only I haven't yet disappeared. I mean I tried, but couldn't! (or )




    I think during the transitions (from John Perceival to Karl Moore to Brad Jones) we lost several British and Australian (or are they British by origin?) members, which has taken away some (heck, most) fun from the Chit Chat. I must say Shaggy Hiker, FunkyDexter and a few others are trying their best to have some fun (or pun) restored, but yes, the old days were better.



    Disclaimer: The comment about transition has been added purely to indicate timelines, it does not imply anything else.
