Same here! My heart skipped a beat when I opened this page, everything still looks like it was so many years ago. Even my old Azumanga avatar/signature are there :D.

Imagine that: it's been 15+ years since the first version of Messenger Plus!, even more than that for Messenger itself. Still, I keep on seeing people getting excited on Facebook about new custom emoticon features... you'll see, one day they'll add sounds and it will be a grand new era of communication! ^o)

I hope you're all doing well. If you need anything, never hesitate to contact me. It's been a while but I still remember each and everyone of you, your bug reports, our long forum discussions at night, pages of text exchanged with Cookie and Menthix about anything and everything, wondering if WDZ was even a real person... time flies.

So, congrats on all of you who got married, had kids, found a job, started a new life, etc... if you travel near Montreal some day, text me and we'll drink to the good ol' days :)

RE: the old days...
well, I'm taking care of two adorable little girls and I'm living north of Montreal, surrounded by trees, a wonderful wife, a barking dog and an old senile cat. I mostly do consulting jobs now, I'm even on TV in news/documentary programs from time to time! yes, the media is that desperate.

How about you? what's up in Dutch-Country? :)

You're a dad now? Nice :) out of curiosity: does the cat cause doggo to bark? :P

I'm finishing up a big-ass project + thesis, which is the last thing I need to do in order to graduate in college :O

one 6 years old and one who's almost 5 :). And no, the dog just loves to bark at anything that moves in the garden.

What are your project/thesis about?

Ah yes, I know random barking at anything doggo sees (or thinks he sees) or for no reason at all :P what kind of dog is it?

Part of the reason why I'm doing this project is a (in-)famous murder case in Deventer, NL where the prime suspect claimed to be 20-30 km away while his mobile was connected to a cell tower close to the crime scene; while that is not unheard of, I'm trying to assess the likelihood of that (though I'm not involved in the trial in any way - that's too much for me to handle :P ). What I'm mainly looking into is this: given that a phone was connected to a specific cell tower, where can said phone have been, based on historical data from www.opencellid.org/.

Wow --- I'm not in that pic! Probably was spending too long time deciding which style of characters I should be using (and missed the deadline somehow).
