    I thought it would be interesting to see what has become of those of us who joined 2003-2004.

    Then: Searching for Diablo II hacks.
    Now: Finishing B.S. in computer science.


    Anyone else?

    I am really sad the asylum got deleted.... back in the day I used to post the rabblings of my insane imagination. I wish I could read some of the dribble i used to post.

    The Asylum is alive and well in the Private Forums, which Premium members should have access to. You don't see it?

    no... I speak of the old asylum where a mod deleted all of the old posts. So all of my original posts from 2007 when I was always messed up are gone.... Asylum was like my mental journal and it's burnt to dust.

    OK, the current Asylum goes back to December 2007, so it looks like they did delete it. We actually have database backups going back to 2008, so depending on when that stuff was deleted, it may be possible to recover. But it would be a terribly unhealthy exercise to sift through all of that junk.

    The Void is also under private forums now. Basically, anything that Google may not like has been closed to the public. If anyone wants access to the private forums, send me a PM.
