Default Where are the Snowdens of yesteryear?

Wondering about many of the old (in terms of long-time, not being old) denizens of TapCIS forum. I hate to start mentioning names because, in my feeble-minded state, I will leave out many important folks.

Some who come to mind that I don't see in recent messages Neil Rubenking and Theresa Carey, sort of the birth parents of Dixonary. Don't see Andy Sterner. The inimitable Fernando Gelbard (aka Ferdinand Sanz) came up in another thread.

So, to kick off a round of "Oldies but Goodies," who is still here from the days when Howard Benner was still with us?

It was treat to see your post. I put up the original message a long time ago and it didn't generate the the response I had hoped. I guess, like me, most of the denizens drifted off to other modes of connectivity.

The word game is alive and well as Google Group, and nearing its 2500th round.

Hi Steve! I'm a holdover from the good old days of the TapCis program.

Neil Rubenking is alive and kicking, try Google and you'll see.

Fernando Gelbard is still going strong too. Take a look at http://gelbard.net/ for a fun bio (if not quite the 'Nando we knew and loved).

Anders Sterner (Arsesq) has a great mailing list he calls Usual Suspects. Some of the Old Guard are with him, and many others, mostly very much in the spirit of the old Tapcis gang. If you'd like to be added, I can ask him.

Alas! Many of the names I have news about are obituaries.

Wayne Scott died a few years ago. He'd moved to be with one of his sons in (I think) Hawaii and faded out peacefully, according to Judy.

There are a few other names scattered among my emails of the last few years. I'll get back as they surface.

I wish more of us checked in here more often too. So many forums and blogs on things that interest me, so little time! But nothing like the wide-ranging intellects and interests of the Tapcis gang, that's for sure.
