Yes, the Central Lounge (or Lounge Central?) is open for business ... many of you know that I earned my avatar during the flaming collapse and resultant closing of Off Topic in mid-2001, but have now been convinced that if any online community can go OT without going juvenile or offensive, it's the smart and savvy denizens of HWC. Have fun, don't even think of making any personal attacks, and stay tuned ... if this trial period works, there'll be a big "Suggest a new avatar for egrevstad" contest.
Seriously, this is scaring me. About 20 post notification e-mails from HWC in the past half hour and there are more members online right now than I have seen for ages. It brings back memories of when this place was really quite busy.
I am going to have to prize myself away from the PC now to go and eat.... quite sad.
