Can't say goodbye to yesterday

It's been more than a decade since the heyday of BBS2 and still, once a year or so, it strikes me to check up on it again. Amazingly, after all these years, this place is still around.

Our place is here, just as we've left it, waiting for the day we'd come back. But we haven't, and we don't, and we probably won't.

It's difficult to come back here and see the emptiness. It's a little painful to see the silly naivete of my younger self, without a care in the world, and I can't help remembering everything that has happened to me since then. I've changed, I've grown, I've loved, and I've hurt.

We've changed, but our place hasn't. It's still here, our little sandbox, frozen in time, our public-private corner of the embyronic internet.

I owe a lot to this place, and to everyone here. I learned a lot, I grew up a lot, and everyone inspired me. I wouldn't be the person I am today if I hadn't found this place, and for that, I'm forever grateful. As embarrassing as they may be in retrospect, I'll cherish the times I spent here for the rest of my life.

I doubt anyone but Tyler and BirdTrainer will ever find this message, but if I'm lucky, my message-in-a-bottle will survive another decade like our childhood play did here before it, and one day, you might find it and remember me. If you do, seek me out. I'm @projectbc on Twitter, but by the time you find this, Twitter might not exist anymore, in which case, look for "Bishop Myers." My name is rare enough that you shouldn't have much trouble finding me.

I want to hear from you. I want to know what kind of life you're leading.

I want to know you're still alive.

Thank you.

      • Hey! Good to see you again!Tyler, Sat Nov 7 20:54
        And yeah, looks like they stopped deleting forums for inactivity at some point. The place would've been gone otherwise.

          Yeah, Bishop found me on facebook the other day and I just now saw the message because it went into my "other" folder. I feel like there will be a point in the near future where I'll get bored and... more

      It's still so crazy to think that the BBS2 days of yore were nearly a decade and a half ago. This, along with the other Server boards of the time, were an important part of my life. I don't know what ... more
