Hello!

I've been lurking here since around about the time of Trifecta. I was a lapsed reader who chose exactly the right time to pick up a copy of the prog for a train journey... 8 years ago? Argh.

This is almost the only online forum I read nowdays, and the only one I felt happy signing up to. Although I was actually inspired to sign up to comment on a post about Napalm Death.

Hope to be a worthwhile contributor here!

Hey there Barrington, nice to see a new avatar on the board.

What strip caused you to come back for more?

It was the whole Trifecta arc. I stopped reading back in my teens and every time I'd picked up the odd issue since then to be treated to such delights as Outlaw or Big Dave I figured I'd made the right decision.It wasn't until I picked up a Trifecta-era prog at random for a train journey and was blown away that I came back full time.
I realise that was a long time ago though: I've been lurking on the board now for 8 years. Oof!
I've been a subscriber for about 6 years I think. Highs and lows, but mainly highs.

Oh would people stop saying things Like 'Trifecta was 8 years ago' and the like. I mean sure its correct and a fact and all that, but it scares the bejezus out of me. 8 chuffin' years.

Can we all just pretend that Trifecta (and Day of Chaos, that's another one) was like a couple of years ago or something...

... a desperate request from an old ...and apparently rapidly aging... man
