Will I be able to check in twenty years from now and read posts from Alexander Matthew Davis complaining about dating life in college? Will the usual suspects hang around, beating us with subtlety sticks, debating marriage between gay robots and protesting baptism for the cryogenically frozen?

I hope so. [Smile]

Maybe I'm too young for this type of sentimental thread. But reading about Dan's good news, along with Boon's and Eduardo_Sauron's updates, gave me a powerful hope that one day I would be able to share Hatrack with my kids. It would be a treasure I can pass down like Jane was passed from Ender to Miro.

I can't wait.

It's a distinct possibility. Just ask LegoMan and Barbie Biker.

No, hatrack will soon degrade into a LOTR fanfic site. It's sad but true.

let's turn this thread into the possible causes of death of hatrack thread:

1: destruction of the planet.
2: destruction of humanity.
3: destruction of technology.
4: lack of funds.
5: lack of interest.
6: evil hackers.

I expect that Hatrack will last two years shorter than The Begging The Question thread, and will expire three years before the Last Post Thread

I literally was like "Oh wow, such serendipity. I'm checking the forums for the first time in months and somebody posted in this thread just yesterday."

But then I realized I had not posted in years, and had just been lurking.

And then I realized that I didn't remember my login info or the email address that I used to create it.

And now I'm here, with a new account, just so I can be like "Yup. Still here."

Yeah. Not reading the date, my first thought at the start was "twenty years sounds a bit optimistic" (and my second was "oh, I haven't seen them in a long while").

Looking at it now, his twenty year goal doesn't sound that unlikely. The forum isn't exactly lively these days (or these past years), but lingering on for another five years doesn't sound that implausible. Whether he'll still care when that twenty years comes... we'll see, but I do expect that the archived threads will still be around.

I dunno if you were ever a member over at Sake River, but he actually opened up some there and participated as a regular member rather than just posting random/experimental poetry. Though he did a lot of that too.

(He has since left and deleted his account, but his posts are still there for your perusal if it'll help you figure him out)

Whoa, blast from the past.

(Found myself back here after googling "seeing other people as the problem is the problem" – with quotes – and a hatrack thread was one of the 5 hits.)

Huh...I don't remember seeing that one. docmagik, you still interested in discussing it? I've done a talk a couple of times that was pretty well received on largely that, but from an angle I'm pretty sure you'll disagree with.
