OLD TIMERS (Part One)
From my hard drive ^ | 6/3/2013 | By Laz A. Mataz

Posted on 06/03/2013 6:37:03 AM PDT by Lazamataz

I was going through some old files on my hard drive, when I discovered a series of threads I preserved from the 1999-2000 timeframe. I started reading through them and I was amazed at the number of people who had been on here, who I lost track of, or no longer see on the forum. I know, some of them are dead, some of them banned, some of them moved on... some of them even changed name! But I would love if any or all of you checked in, informing me of your status. I'm especially interested in hearing from the dead ones, I am very curious about the afterlife.

No, but seriously, I will fill out this chart best I can and the rest of you chime in if you want. I am eager to hear from many of you that have lost touch in the last decade or so....

Here is a complete list and the current status of these old-time Free Republic members, to my knowledge.

Still here after all these years. In fact, I was here pretty much on day one as I was one of the original crew from the old Prodigy Whitewater BB days. I posted under my real name for a while until I came up with the SamAdams76 moniker in 1997.

I don't post nearly as much as I used to due to my job situation - I travel all the time and work a lot of hours. But even when I'm not posting, I come here every day to at least check in to see what's happening as this is still my primary source of news. I also remain a monthly donor (dollar-a-day club).

Good idea for a thread. Can't wait to see some of the other old-timers check in.

Yep “dial up” internet days...when I was fast and the internet was slow...now I’m slow and the internet is fast...

These youngsters on here don’t know what it was like “doing the internet slow”...man they have had it easy... :)

High Laz, I am still on the right side of the turf! I am “last man standing on my street”. You know the “gun nut with the Doberman,” (Our seventh).

I hoped to win the lottery so I could escape this shithole state but alas, I guess I will only escape the “way certain”.

Been busy, busy, busy. Got a great job with the Tides Foundation in 2008. Spent a few months in 2011 on a fabulous research project in gender studies and Obamacare with my BFFs Rachel Maddow and Keith Olbermann. And these days I’m shoulder to the wheel working hard day in and day out for the election of the next great mayor of New York City, Anthony Wiener.

Life is good.
