Well, congrats to the guys who've kept the lights on for the past 5 years. Those hamsters powering the server have lasted longer than expected!

+1  :bd:

+2! I've been here since September 28, 2012 according to my first post.

Lucky for them they are hamsters and not gerbils.

Happy birthday and a huge thanks to Brant, Gus, and Jarhead, for making this a place that's the first, and last, thing I check on the computer every day!   <:-) <:-) <:-) <:-) <:-)

It's high praise from me to say I've never dwelled in a forum - not at WG, not at Matrix, even though I had accounts and worked for both extensively in the past - that kind of thing just never interested me. And yet lucky you, I hang out here and share weaboo videos and other stupid shite. Maybe a game or two here and there, but no promises.

What ever happened to Groglord?  :dreamer:

He's a semi-mythical being who only appears in times of great need.

The Groganati came from somewhere...
GROGS OF CRISIS -- a four-player mp of GMT's boardgame Time of Crisis, set in the decades before Diocletian.

Me vs Barth -- DC1: Blitz

Survive Harder! In the grim darkness of the bowl there is only, um, Amazons. And tentacles and midgets. Not remotely what you're thinking! ...okay, maybe a little remotely.

Five years ago, we opened our forums here at GrogHeads.  Our front page followed shortly thereafter...

Wait, what? WE HAVE A FRONT PAGE??!
