    Hello new people! :hatsoff:
    Welcome Back old people! :wavey:


    To borrow a previous intro, if you're going to be away for a bit (hint: that's more than just a day or two) then come tell us, so we know why you aren't posting! If you're new to the forum, introduce yourself here, so we know you aren't a spambot. If you're leaving permanently, then I'll expect another post in this thread in about a years time.

    ________________


    Here are two thread rules. Please actually observe them this time:

    Two threads in which to chat to people are the rants thread and the raves thread. The current rants thread is here, and the current raves thread is here. Please use them! You may welcome people back or say goodbye, but if you want to ask what someone has been doing or what they're going to be doing, then don't do so in this thread. If you wanting to know what happened to another poster, ask them via PM or visitor message, or ask someone else who might know using the same methods.

    Moderator Action: I split off this discussion about who gets to start the thread and whether we should even make new threads at 1000 posts from this thread. The new thread is in Site Feedback.

    Yay, I no longer have to see my name associated with an OP I didn't write.

    Friends, brodudes, Civfanatics.

    It's been a year. Apparently? I didn't realise. But it seemed about time to return. I'm a little drunk, and a little nostalgic; for a Gael, the two are interchangeable, so here I am.

    There's been a few changes in my life; new job, new city, all of that. Expect it'll come out in time, if it matters. I think I still owe a few people responses, in PM or in threads- I'll do my best to get them, if I can.

    :wavey: I know we irritated each other more than liked one another, but I missed you posting here.

    Admittedly I don't have quite as much engaging discussion on other boards as I've had here.

    Now that I'm in transition from university to graduate school and have more free time, looks like I'm back for a while.

    Hello again everyone. :) My last OT post was about 20+ months ago... I'm getting showered in surprise that I'm still alive already. :p

    Huh what did we bet on I forgot? Lol!

    Also, I haven't quit CFC or anything I've just been really busy launching rockets and moving across the country. My wife finally arrived here and our stuff also made it here last week. (I'm so happy to have a microwave again :lol: )
    Our launch rate is increasing from like once every couple of months to every two weeks. By the end of the year it will be once a week. Next year it will be every few days. Already this means that half of all things launched off this planet are done by SpaceX, which is crazy to think about. But it also means I probably won't be posting much. :sad:
