Hopefully not. I mainly posted that for Heyyou, and Led.

What do you say that we make a giant group chat filled with past members of this gem of a site, for nostalgia reasons?
Add me on there.

I had a moderately successful rap career before retiring and returning to my true passion, taxidermy.

Default oh hai

Not sure what brought me here, but this seems like a fitting thread to post in. I appreciate being remembered by OP :). My last login was just over 6 years ago ... yikes!

What brought me to gprime was the blindfolded pianist when I was in high school. After viewing the other videos and playing the games, I stopped by the chat. That is where I found my home. I was very active in the IRC channel for several years. I still regularly lurk around there with a few die-hards.

It was fun being a part of this community when the site made such a rise in popularity. It's also great that John has continued to pay the bills to keep this small piece of internet history from fading away.

After high school, I had an amazing and challenging 4.5 years of college. I graduated with two degrees during the recession, so I had trouble finding a job for a while. Eventually I landed a great entry-level job in Information Security. I worked my butt off studying and certifying to get better at my career. Over the next 4 years, I got promoted and moved on to an engineering position in InfoSec, which is exactly what wanted to do after college. Last year, I got married. This year, we are expecting a son. I certainly feel very fortunate.

As for the future of this site, we are just in a holding pattern right now. As soon as John or one of the other members finally gets around to winning the lottery, the gprime house will be constructed with space for all. Then focus can return to delivering superior internet content. See you there!

It's okay Snow, I got the sarcasm.

I realize this post is 3 years old but if any of y'all find yourselves in WA send me a pm and if by random dumb luck I actually log in and see it we can hang out.

Hah, Metal I just looked at my pm's, I forgot about those random discussions we had about Harry and the Potters. And work, and life, and shoes, and Buffy :P

I've gone through some changes myself recently and I'm saving up to get a phoenix tattoo on my back.

This. I am glad it's still here though, so we can all pop in like this. Big props to the dns/server owner for keeping it up despite the lack of activity. It's a little depressing thinking about the fact that if it disappears I will probably never speak with any of you again. Should we start a G-Prime group on Facebook?

Wow, you called it. Only 1 year and 11 months, though.

Thank you. You epitomized in one sentence why I miss gprime.

As for me, I stumbled across gprime through google. I'm not sure what I was searching but I saw a thread about movies, and as a budding film buff decided I had to post, since as a cool coincidence I was also a big fan of Undergrads and recognized the name of the forum. To my surprise not only did the forum have nothing to do with Undergrads, most of the people here hadn't even seen it. Luckily, though, what I did find was some cool, interesting, hilarious people who liked to chat about random crap and gave me something to look forward to when I popped online.

I haven't done much of note since I was last active other than a bit of an occupation change. I'm working as a cook at a local restaurant while I work on a graphic novel script and a computer game. Hey, any of you on steam? maybe I'll make a thread for that. Soo, how do I end this.... Good night, and good luck?

p.s. The more things change, the more things stay the same. Like the ridiculously short auto-log-out time on the gprime forums.

Has John ever thought about adding a donate button to the site?

I had the urge to log in. First shocker: fucking 2600 posts. How did I spend so much time here? Second shocker: fucking joined in 2007.

It's cool to think how much I changed since then, which makes the prospect of browsing through my old posts that much more terrifying. I doubt anyone really remembers me but I sure have a few memories with this place and looking at these usernames is incredibly nostalgic.

Guess I'll see you guys in a few years when my subconscious stumbles across janitor matt again in my sleep. Take care.

I remember that guy. He made a thread looking for friends. I wonder what happened to that guy. Did he go to the big janitorial closet in the sky?

Oh, it's been dead for so long. Once everyone stopped being fifteen, or went on to college, it began deteriorating.

There's a facebook group for G-Prime members, though that's also dead.
