Looked on the who's online list and realised I was at the top smiley - groan

Think I'll disappear back into the ether!

For anyone interested I'm writing up my PhD and working as a researcher, still doing sign language recognition smiley - smiley

What's worrying is that this is my second account, my first one is 37something, can't remember the login details though so it will be lost in the change over smiley - sadface

I just had a look at Who is Online, and it's kind of nice that the top bunch of people are mostly familiar.

I'm guessing a few of the 'older' researchers who've not been around actually on site in a while, have been getting Emails from researchers who're still on site and heard about the changes, and have contact details....
I looked through my 'friends' list last night, and a lot* of them will be lost in teh change, many I just don't have any Email or other method to contact smiley - sadface Guess they just drifted off at some point and I failed to notice smiley - dohsmiley - wah

Hey! just cause we've all gone old and haggered, and our faces arn't as smooth as they were a decade or so ago, doesn't mean we're any less friendly! smiley - winkeyesmiley - snorksmiley - wow

Actually, have you heard the news?: the BBC is getting rid of h2g2, but a group of people from h2g2 has put in a bid, and is hopin gto take over runnign the site... smiley - yikes and some of us 'old timers' are still about, though maybe not online as much as some of us once were... real life keeps turnign its reality face apon some of us and removeing us from the safety of the interwebs! smiley - biggrin Glad to see your still about though, if a little*infrequent a visitor smiley - biggrinsmiley - boing

It was more that many of my old friends have done like I have and gone back to real life. While the new faces are friendly enough they're not quite the same... yet smiley - winkeye

I had caught a passing thread and discovered h2g2c2, interesting idea and I wish you all well with it, maybe if I stick around a bit more I'll hop on board but right now I'm going to dangle my feet in the water and admire the view.
