    This is a list of DISboard threads that post and discuss Newsletter (or related), VMK site changes, and the like that I feel fits. Most threads duplicate a copy of the Newsletter as it once appeared on the VMK main page. I include the title of the update, the date, topics and the link to the thread. I will keep this first post revised with the most recent updates at the top.

    What I posted above is as far back as I can go on my Thread Subscription Page. I welcome comments and additional links that I may not have above.

    I must say it was interesting going back and re-reading over a year's worth of Newsletters. Much was said that turned out great and some was said that never turned out at all (yet?) or in a much different format. Some great memories were brought back too. Here's looking forward to many more!

    I'd also like to mention that this project inspired by Bopper's Pin List.

    What fun is anything if other people are not guessing? Like when I say Sparky came to shadows room and gave us inferno.. Many people were guessing on that one! :goodvibes

    Thanks Aengus! I'm honored! I can't promise to create the new Newsletter threads, but whenever someone makes one, I'll be sure to link it here as a repository for future reference.

    If anyone out there has any bookmarks to DISboard Newsletter threads older than September '06 please post them or PM them and I'll add them to the first post.

    I'd better be ever vigilant, I wouldn't want Lava Boy after me! :rotfl:

    Again, thanks for the sticky. :teeth:

    Actually, there were 3 people in the room, and Sparky liked me better so he took your Inferno and the other guy's Inferno and gave them to me. Geez you have a bad memory...

    Now ON TOPIC:
    Thanks Goofy_Bob for making the thread; the information is very interesting (in a good way of course XD)
