Thanks guys. Not only will I be on the board for a few hours today, I'll be also finishing up a feature for the Retro Game Room - just for a few hours though.
Don't remember the last time I've had a Birthday thread. To be honest, Bdays get more depressing every year, I know I'm only turning 24 but I consider that to be to old and definitely feel a lot younger.
True but when I look at the age I was when I opened up the very first vizzed board, it's just crazy to think of how many years I've had the board and how many years I've put time into the board, it's been like a life long project.
I was around 16 when I opened the first vizzed board, about 7 years ago which would've been in 2002 or around there. I've spent almost third of my life owning the forum lol. I actually just found the oldest known copy of the board archived at the wayback machine:
http://web.archive.org/web/20021215065307/www.vizzed.rcthost.com/vizzedboard/index.php Before I owned vizzed board, I owned 'Viz Board' for about a year or so which was an ezboard, so not sure if that counts (that was before I coined the word 'vizzed').
The domain name vizzed.com is only 6 1/2 years old so vizzed board didn't have it's own domain name when it first opened up.
Damn, I missed your birthday! Oh well, I hope it was grand.
I keep forgetting that I am only a year older than you. It is weird when I think of it, since I so used to being older than everyone else on the board. I mean, seriously it sometimes is hard for me to think of people I've known online for years as adults, I always see them as the teenagers they were when I first met them.
Elara: I have the same problem. Everyone I met years ago that were older than me I still view as being a lot older even though they're only a year or so older and same applies for those who were younger.
When I first opened up the first vizzed board I was around 16 and I was close to everyone in age. It's different now though, I'm 24 and I find myself having to act as though I'm every age since the age range is a lot bigger. We've got active members as young as 12 and some members close to 30. And than there's some older than that but they mostly just come here for the games when they have down time at work.
