(The first NBF thread) Wow. Hard to believe that this is where it all started. I look back at the names and dates of those who joined here way before I did and it's amazing to me that this forum is still around.
Who would have thought that back in those early years that a simple idea of creating a forum for people of like interest to gather and share knowledge, ideas, and camaraderie would take root and blossom into what it is today? It's a testament to the creators of NBF and its loyal members for keeping the faith and continuing to make this place special.
As I get ready to bump this thread up to the top I take pause and reflect on the past 5 years (Damn, has it really been almost 5 years?) that I've been here at NBF. A lot of changes have been made in those years, but the core still remains the same, and I for one am glad to be a part of it. Thanks Shaun, Luke, and everybody else for making this a great place to be.
(Don't mind me, I always get this way at the end of the year- It's a time of reflection for me.
