Well, I take a break for a semester and look what happens! OC.net gets all changed up, there's all these new folks that I don't know, and I get Chrismated.  All of these are good things, though.

It is nice to be back, though, and I'm looking forward to be being a lurker again.  I don't have much to contribute on this board, but I always like seeing what other people have to say, even if I don't agree with it or understand it (which happens quite a bit).

I'll be around, and congrats for all the hard work!  Many years to OC.net!

Dear Philip,

Congratulations on your Chrismation.  Nice name, too!

Dustin, Phil, Bobby,

Congratulations and prayers for many more years
