Welcome back :)

don't feel too bad. Even family members get busy and we don't see them all the time.
There was a bit of a gap before I came on here. I had no idea Planetdescent.com crashed for months until I tried to access the site.

I imagine that was a bit of a shock.

I, however, got lucky, as I already knew of PD.net at the time and was actively visiting when PD.com crashed.

Not that the loss wasn't still felt, of course. At the time, to me, PD.net even felt like it couldn't replace good ol' PD.com.

But I was just being negative at the time. :P

I don't think negative, but of course, I cheat a little  ;D

Vanguard - "I think the PD.com site is going to go down."

anyone else - "Think positive."

Vanguard - "Okay. I am positive it will go down."

A shame, but it needed an upgrade.

@Scyphi: I've been to PD.com countless times to get files and search the forums for Descent-related technical stuff in the past, but never signed up before January of this year. I was looking for more D3 audio files and found out .com didn't work, and I google searched it and found .net and didn't think anything happened to .com, that it had always been .net and I just didn't remember the domain of the website correctly, but turns out I was right, there WAS a .com! Obviously...  ::)
