I can't believe it. This place meant so much to me back in the day. I honestly can't believe the degree to which you guys put up with me. I know I contributed, but still. All the flame wars, my poor spelling and my bumbling around. Oh man. Today I replayed DROD: JrTH for 5 minutes before I burst into tears.

... just... I dunno, bless you all.

Thank you for the tea, I shall stick around. The only reason I left was because this place wasn't enough for me anymore. Things weren't going well for me. But things are coming back together.

Yeah, I should check it out. I intend to replay JrTH first though. It's the one I got hooked on.

Is Jeff Ray still around? Banjooie?

Both of them are still active, although Banjooie doesn't post as frequently as he/she used to (mostly once every half year now, and sometimes not even that).

This forum is unkillable. And the people all act about the same as they did decades ago. The energy level waxes and wanes, but it's the same place.

Amazing!

Same here. Years ago I downloaded copies of all of the soundtracks in DROD levels which I play in my headphones at work depending on the situation. Just finished off a client project and got great feedback? Play the level finish theme from KDD ('The Bride'). Haven't got much to do at work? Play the soundtrack from 'Caught in an Eddy'. Tough problem to solve? Play 'Sebastian By Day'.

In this way, you can approximate almost any real-world problem to a DROD room with an appropriate theme. I just wish life had an unlimited undo feature.
