We never interacted, but I've been around on and off since 2001 (not with this account though) and I remember you. I enjoyed your comics. Welcome back.

Well now, here's someone we haven't seen in a while indeed. Welcome back.

Is Dave still around?

He stops by randomly. Not often. He still works behind the scenes tho. As does KHawk

Evolutional changed his account name to "Downgraded" quite a while back....
[/quote]
He changed it back

evo is basically MIA. I talk to him on facebook every once in a blue moon, but he doesn't have much to do with gamedevs stuff lately.

There's been this weird bug that hasn't allowed him to post anything even when he signs in. Mike hasn't been able to figure out why :/

Hey, long time no see! I'm not on nearly as often as I used to be, but I still like to pop on and browse a bit.

It is crazy when I think how long some of us have been on here. I joined these forums 9 years ago! Since then I've gotten my degree, gotten married, had two kids, and spent over 4 years working in the game industry :/

Your comic is practically part of the 'legends of old'!

What is up in the world of Boolean?

So apart from being mostly dead for a few years, what has kept you from the site?

Once I started uni I was finding I had less and less time for anything, including forum shenanigans. When I started working towards moving overseas I had even less time again, and then once I actually got overseas (apart from my brief stop in on Gdnet before I head to Toronto) I was even more busy. It was also around then I kinda stopped programming for a while. Now that I'm back doing development by day and working on a few of my own projects, it seemed as good a time as any to return to Gdnet :)

Zerowolf! Awesome to see you're still around :D

I know what you mean. I was just going back through some of the old Gdnet comics and remembering times of lore. Remember the billion page long posts from Wavinator? Mittens the moderator? Who was it that was moving to a place with no internet just before Valve announced you need an internet connection for Half Life 2? I forgot his name but he made Polypaint.

Oh my god remember Polypaint!?

Married, two kids and a sweet job? It's nice to hear things are going great :)

That's a worrying thought XD

I was reading them again and forgot just how many of those things I actually did. I must have had more time back then :P

Still in Toronto, working as a web developer by day. I'm keeping myself busy in the evenings by working on a few websites and browser games for fun.

Wow I never knew GDNET was so close. I wouldn't know you since I'm relatively new and I just lurk a lot. Plus I probably would have been doing other stuff back then like learning to read.

I (CoffeeMug/kill - man that was a long time ago) haven't signed in in years, though I've been occasionally typing gamedev.net into the address bar recently. Hi!

I'm not around any more, but some strange compulsion caused me to wander back here tonight. I first registered to participate in the MP3-beating compression thread. It was thanks to the GDNet lounge that I discovered that there were still creationists around and that a whole segment of society viewed Microsoft as the ultimate evil.

I was once briefly allowed to be a moderator here, but I think Dave came to view that as an error of judgement (on the part of the person who nominated me), mainly because I allowed friends of mine to use my account and they started deleting threads for the thrill of it.

I no longer harbour dreams of becoming a game developer, after realising that I did not actually enjoy programming so much when it was all I had to do and without being able to direct what I was doing myself.

I am moving from England to the Netherlands soon.

That is all.

Smart Idiot made polypaint. And, yes, yes I do remember polypaint. I remember you were on it a lot, actually.. [url="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o-9qI7VAkWM&feature=player_embedded"]check it out[/url].

Polypaint was one of the most awesome things to come out of GDNet ever. I'm sad nobody made a deviant-art style polypaint community.

I have "played" some HTML5-based polypaint clones since, but none of them were quite as good as polypaint was over five years ago!

Wow, this is nostalgia-town. All this needs is for bishop_pass to show up out of nowhere, and we'll be transported back to the early 2000s. [img]http://public.gamedev.net/public/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif[/img]

The site is so modern now. I think I preferred the dark theme.

I still come by as a lurker from time to time. I've been busy with working in the industry as well as getting ready for graduate school after 4 years working in the game development industry. I've been offered a fellowship in the University of Houston Mathematics PhD program, so I'll probably be even more busy the next 5 years or so.

Hello. I remember you! Welcome back!

It's weird being that naive brash kid (and now sometimes adult) to being a pro dev. Now doing web dev, game dev seems a bit of dream sometimes. But this site has more gold than most. That's why I keep coming back. Now if you'll only update the site to the Black theme ... that'll be great :)


So can we expect any Boolean comics in the near future?

This is the first time I've signed into this account in...[i]years[/i]. Any of the old timers still around? Cold Acid, Evolutional, Avatar God, Trapper Zoid, Zero Wolf?

Things are different now! The site looks all fancy and new!

It seems the avatars are being pulled from Gravatar now? Anyone know if they let you set site specific avatars? I miss my old one:)

Say goodbye to productivity! And welcome back!

I guess you would consider me to be an old timer-- not sure if you remember me though! Nontheless, i'm still around here and there in read-only mode. If anyone cares for an update, I don't really do anything game-dev related anymore, I sold out and became a project manager in the financial world.

Impressively you've managed to guess three of the letters in my old user name.
