Rats, I've overshot by 10 days! Well, happy 10th anniversary of joining this curious corner of the internet anyway!

Some faces have come, some have gone but it is always good to know no matter how long you've been away you can drop back in and feel a sense of familiarity.

A lot has changed in 10 years, wonder what the next 10 will bring...!

Yeah! Been waiting too long for the Sub-Orbitals. Maybe the Flying Cars will arrive as well.

Actually, that was a firm prediction from a aviation expert on the tv a week or so ago.

Wow. It's officially 10 years today.

I feel odd about it.

There are some posters on here who are no longer around (who I kinda miss), but there are others whose names I've come to recognize (and yes, occasionally, even rely on for a bit of wit or a good source article) and I feel like I actually know most of you without ever having met you in person.

I suppose now I'll have to travel 'cross the pond to some FT related thing just to introduce myself formally. Very Happy

It has been a pleasure, all, and I do hope I can say this again in another 10 years....

Good to have you here, MercuryCrest.

Just passed my 12th anniversary! I used to read the board from the start but didn't actually join until I wanted to say something.

I'm intrigued to look now and see what that thing you wanted to say was...!

The oldest recorded entry begins thus...

LOL, I deleted my earliest posts, because reasons. I used to live off a Gropecunt lane in Glastonbury but sadly the council decided not to put up any name signs on it.

ETA My first post was in an IHTM thread about hearing ghostly voices.
