As my 1000th post, I just wanted to say "Thank you" to all of you guys, gals, and aliens that have given me such stunning conversations, helped me grow into my love for wargames, given me things to think about - whether gaming or in real life, discussed history (my passion) with me, and just been generally fun and funny people! As an American currently living abroad, it is nice to know that, no matter where I go, I have a kindred wargamer out there near me, probably planning bombing runs or leading a Napoleonic charge!
Its nice to know that so many people can, across the world, come together relatively cordially over such a great hobby! Its also great that Matrix provides us with a gathering spot where the devs and mods are friendly, listen to their fans, and join in the same spirit of camaraderie. We may not always agree, but when we disagree, we do it in style.
So here is to my first 1000 posts, and let Matrix be around for another 20,000 more!
