    Likewise, at 15 seconds before midnight, EST. TFL went dark a teeny bit early. :(

    The part I didn't like was that it would let you type the message before telling you that you were too late.
    The end of an Era.

    Yes, end of an era :( but a beginning of a new one! :) What a legacy we have and you should all be proud of it. Thank you one and all!

    Let's roll!

    I watched the "Lock Down" as well. :(

    On the plus side, here we are. :D

    Yep, Rich pulled the plug. According to my watch it went dead about 10 seconds early.

    Rich had a post asking if everyone was present and it looks like only about 20 TFLers made it.

    I squeeked in just "under the wire." ;)

    Rich has posted "TFL Now Closed", well written closure and message.

    A gentle gasp and then it was gone. It was closed and an era of greatness passed into history. It is truly sad!:(

    Does anybody know what that means? I saw that at the top of the closing announcement.

    So then my 1500th post was my last one. Nice round number to end with.

    Weird. Boy did that site help pass the time in my old job. Basically got paid to surf the internet for 12 hours, unless the phone rang.

    TFL is like a ghost now. You can see it, but you can't quite touch it . . . .

    I was there and wanted to try posting for the finale but got engrossed in the "Lie Detector Test" thread in General Discussion area and missed it.

    Check that thread out for reviving childhoodlum memories.

    I was rather perplexed by my reaction to the demise of TFL. It was sort of like the last episode of M.A.S.H.: an actual touch of genuine sadness.

    I dunno. I was just surprised at myself for feeling that way. Cyberspace can seem quite impersonal at times, but then...

    Oh well! New year, new cyber-home!

    My sincere best wishes to all as we start 2003.

    2003??!! Geez. I'm still wondering where 1984 went to...:mad:

    I imagine that anouncement is scheduled to be visible between those dates.
