Hey all,

It has been many years since I've stepped foot around these parts, but a conversation in the office here today when I was telling the guys where my accessibility and usability roots come from reminded me about the forums and the many names and faces I've learnt from over the years.

As a result, I figured I'd stop by and say Hi. I still see familiar faces around here, people I learnt from all those years ago (almost eleven years ago if my math is correct). Darin, Pandy, Brian, and probably others too. I'm amazed to see you all still here.

Hope a few of you remember me. Eleven years ago when I frequented the old BB taught me a lot, and I'm now using those skills 9-5, managing 450 Web sites for a leading International travel company. My ideal job, and years of hard work paid off. smile.gif

Hope you're all well. Feel free to say hi. smile.gif

Christian! Another familiar 'face'. It amazes me that the regular people are all still here. Not much changes, eh? In a good way, of course. smile.gif

Some have become moderators (Christian and Pandy) and others (like me) just stayed because we like it here, partly because of those "old" regulars. smile.gif

Nice to see you, Jamie.

Nice to see you, Frederiek.

Yeah, I was around these parts five years ago when the switch was made to Invision PB, and a few of the regulars became moderators. But quite soon after that I took a break from the design world to go traveling, and then I came back and fell in to something completely different career wise. However, I've been back in the game for about 17 months now and couldn't be happier. smile.gif

Gee, I only just now noticed you are actually a member of the moderators group.

Anyway, lots of things happen in 5 years. I moved on too: back to my homeland (after more than a decade abroad), and from making regular web sites to creating tailored online software.

Welcome back in the "game".
