My last writeup was over 6 years ago. How time flies. I was an editor here, and now I barely know how the site works anymore. So many new names and new ways of doing things. I've checked in from time to time, but I didn't check in enough. Somehow, E2 was frozen in time in my mind, and my friends would always be there, and it'd always be this place I remembered.
Life happened fast and time passed quickly. I moved to Australia in 2009 to be with Virtualwolf, and we got married. Since then it's been a blur of working and moving and occasional travel, but my friends and life and love can always be traced back to this little site. I may not know most of the people here now, but one of you is gone. I think it's hit some of us old timers hard because we've wandered off and assumed that E2 will always be the same, the same E2 we played on when we were in college in the mid 2000s.
But it's not - time passes here just like anywhere else.
Time passes for people.
It's a harsh reality that no place and no one is safe from time passing, but I wanted to stop in and say I am damn thankful for the people I've met here.
My thoughts and love are with wertperch and all of those touched closely by the passing of Christine.
