I can't find the birthday thread and I didn't want to post off-topic in the "How are you feeling?" thread, and I have no idea where Dreamscaper saw your birthday, but it sounded like it really is your birthday, and if that's so, let me say "happy birthday!"
A renaissance would be awesome... "the glory days" were long before my time here too. Bring your friends and maybe it can still happen though...lol. The more active members we have that post regularly, the better the forum gets and new people bring new ideas and content which is great. A lot of people join, post regularly for a few weeks and then are never (or rarely) seen again. A lot of the real old-timers don't post regularly either anymore either but they still check back in now and then.
