Hey everyone! I wanted to come on here and just give an update of where I’m at in life and give a few shout outs about Slyck.

My first shout-out is to SunnyD, MrFred, HouseCrowd, and the Slyck community, who over the years have managed to keep whatever energy burns in Slyck alive.

And that gets to my next point. Yes, is not what it used to be. At its peak, was a formidable force in the file-sharing and P2P news genre. It was an amazing time filled with technological marvels cropping up nearly every day. I’m grateful Slyck was a part of those days.

Time moves on and people move on as well. Obviously I moved on. Around 2011, I went to law school and became an attorney. My specialty is housing and rental law in New York City. And I love it! The effort that I put into Slyck absolutely helped in that venture. It helped me become a better writer, researcher, professional, and I can go on. And Slyck was all about fighting for the little people and against corrupt power, which helped focus my legal interest as a public interest/social justice attorney.

So will Slyck ever be the same? Right now my focus isn’t on Slyck or P2P/file-sharing news. And yes, it has been a very very long time since I’ve written anything here. Also, those early days were a unique time, so if Slyck becomes something, it will become something very different. I’m not sure what that form will be, but to help probe into different areas, a while back I asked SunnyD to diversify our news into other areas of interest. So thank you SunnyD!

What’s truly remarkable is that Slyck is still around after all these years (17 years I think!) and that people still care about Slyck. It's remarkable there's still something left of the Slyck community. So thank you to everyone who helped create this place and keep it alive to this day.

Thank you Tom and good to hear from you and that things are going well in your life. We diehards aren't going anywhere. This place was one of the first forums that I joined and actually stayed somewhat active in. So many memories here. Slyck will live on forever!
In the 60's, people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal.
