Well, long time no see...
« on: October 26, 2016, 05:46:23 PM »

Hello everyone.  I'm not exactly sure what made me look up the Hall of Worlds again, but somehow I got a hankering to see if it was still around.  Actually, here was the line of thought:
Thinking about web development
Realizing how far it's come in all these years
Thinking about Microsoft Frontpage
Thinking about how Syrion used to code in Notepad
Thinking about how I used to build sites in Frontpage, then delete all the spaces to look like I made it in notepad so he wouldn't notice...

Search for Syrion and HoW and bam...here it is, like 17 years after I first made my crappy Hall of Worlds fansite...

I love that the image smileys have never changed at all.   :jester:

So I'm 34 now...  I made the first Hall website when I was 17, so you can imagine that it's blowing my mind that you guys kept it going. 

Not sure why I'm posting...  drank quite a bit and it's 12:45am and my 3 month old and wife are asleep in the other room.  It's just pretty surreal.  Hope everyone is doing very well.

And I just realized that my username is "Ben"...    I used to go by "Aldiran" if anyone remembers that name. :)

Hi Aldiran,

Welcome back. There's still some regulars visiting and I have brushed the place up a bit over the last year. There's more to do but IRL is getting in the way a bit. ;)

Congrats on your wife and kid. It seems you moved abroad? If you want a name change, let me know.

It's not really a feist fan forum anymore but SFF with a large historical section on Feist. ;) Since most of those still visiting moved on and Feist finished the riftwar cycle. But if you got something to discuss then you are more than welcome to!

D.

Ps: don't forget bookmark us. And we're also on Facebook.

I'm a firm believer in this, I'm also a firm drinker.

Keep cool and stick around.
