    Hello All!

    Most if not everybody will have no idea who I am, it's great to see some of the old faces like Jaffa Cake (Some great World Cup and Tour De France threads years ago), Doctor Q (Still the master of all statistics I see), Sun Baked, Thomas Veil (resident conservative who took a lot of heat for playing devils advocate), iJon, obeygiant, Ugg and many, many others....Aloha!

    I wonder if some of the spirited regulars like Skunk are still around? Many great debates in Community Discussion! I know I could simply use the Search function but I just wanted to say hello.

    <<<<<----- I am me. Not a top or prolific poster by any means. I frequented the forums around the time indicated under my avatar mostly for Mac resources and "rumors" and the occasional dip into the Community Discussion and Politics forum. I enjoyed my time spent here, the colorful personalities/regulars that posted here were entertaining and informative.

    Re: The old time prolific posters leaving, the end of an era on MR I suppose...

    My orbit only takes me around these parts every few years I guess. An unnoticed absence and an unnoticed return by all except you and Mr Downs! Works for me. :cool:

    Serious question, am I considered an old timer?

    I think re 'old time posters leaving', some found that life intervened - new jobs, new relationships - with the time needed to maintain an online life, others found different outlets, yet others decided to leave - or circumstances compelled them to leave (illness and so on), and there were some who were - I suspect - asked to leave.

    Anyway, may I extend to you a warm welcome back.

    Lol. I don't know you and you don't know me either. I have only been a member for 3 years (2012) so far. I was interested to see how long you were away so I checked your profile
