Default Hello (again) everyone :)

Hello folks!
It's been more than 10 years since I last logged on, and since I was just helped in regaining access to my account, I've decided to write a short greeting for you all Looking forward to reconnecting with the old guard and meeting all the new members!

Take care,
Lightside

Welcome back. This place is a lot quieter than it used to be, though

Welcome back, Lightside!

I guess all the stars have aligned at the same time, and us old timers come crawling out of the woodwork again.

Thanks guys! Yes, it does seem a bit quiet around here, but well, it's good to see that some people are still talking Come stai, Tom? It's certainly been a while since we last spoke!

Not much to report here. I started working as a waiter for Disney World in Florida in 2007, and I am still stuck there.

Apart from that, I am married, have a house, two cats, and started my own website. How about you?

Good to meet you Japo, and yes, my last login was sometime in 2005, right before I graduated, so a little bit before your time

Differences? Yes, I seem to remember quite a few different things, especially in the catalogue (I believe my favourite game, Elvira, was still on the list back then), but I think that in the effort of making the site legit, it is inevitable that some games which lost their abandonware status must be removed!

Yes, we had to remove lot of games. You probably left before our big ESA issue, which which happened very long time ago.

Anyway, I guess we probably met back then but I honestly don't remember Welcome back

Yeah, I figured as much - but I would much rather have Abandonia open with a few less ESA protected games than have it risking being shut down by overzealous copyright authorities.

Marko! So nice to talk to you again how have you been, old friend?
