    I remember it well :). Whatever became of the folks who used to post on there? Darth Raver is one that comes to mind right away.

    Howsabout some of the people who used to post on here too, like Aussie Dave or Maiden Australia? Anybody seen or heard from them for a while?

    If such a thing were possible and I wasn't such an antisocial old bastard, I might suggest a giant MD get-together/reunion for BB members old and new. Course then I'd have to think of an excuse to get out of it...

    I'd be willing, but it'd be a bit far for me to travel, unless a few asylum seekers could give me a lift.

    I was on the old board for a few months. The new one took a little getting used to, but it didn't take long to realise that it really is rather snazzy.

    Ah, but that wasn't on the original original BB :p . And if you put your name on the list and it's not on my list, that's because I gave up maintaining it. I'm just a lazy arsehole. So there.

    I would like to thank everybody for there comments. I've had the site running since 1998.. first it was Maiden Australia.. then Maiden Downunder.

    Its fantastic for me to know i've brought together so many people. I've made a lot of friends.. even some very close friends.

    The BB will still continue. The first thing I wanted was it to stay online. I had no doubt Mark would keep it.

    I will also still be visiting. Im not going away hehe.

    In the mean time.. visit my bands web site haha as we need more fans :loco: Then we can be at Metal for the Brain 2002 and get very drunk hehe :)

    Cheers

    Thanks for this Steve. I had just recovered from the heart-seizure inducing robots thread and I thought someone was closing the board down.
