It has been a long time since I've last looked at BYOND.
Took a little while to recover my account but I'm very interested to see how it has progressed.
Then: It was 2001, I was young and wanted to make games but had never dealt with a programming language before. Me and my brother discovered BYOND and started getting to work building as many things and learning as much as we could. It was a magical time and ultimately lead me to where I am now. I was even the purchaser of the LAST copy of the physical BYOND's Blue Book (I wonder if I could find it?)
Now: I'm a senior software engineer for a very successful software company in San Diego, CA. I haven't done much game programming since then. It has been mostly web based development but it is something I fell in love with.
Are Dan and Tom still around? Who's still around from the old days? Rollcall!
