11 Years of Ppruning

I've just realised that this months marks 11 years of Ppruning for me and what an enjoyable boredom reliever it has been. I do miss the old PPRuNe chat though, that was a hoot most of the time.

Thanks Danny, you've helped me while away unproductive time (even when it was supposed to be productive) in some of the more dismal parts of the world!

Time flies ........ only 6 months to go and I make 11 years. When I was in fulltime employment I had lots of time to waste. Since I stopped working full time, now that my time is my own I spend less time on PPRuNe!

So who has "Ppruning" on the hobbies or interests section of their cv/resume?

Amen to all the above - and nice to see us Old Timers sticking together. I likewise miss chat, but admit it was dangerously addictive. I miss Marge too, but let's not go there.

Just a bit over 11 years now...my how the time flies!

I also miss the old days of PPRuNe chat with Foxfire and co. Hilarious stuff in the late evenings. Don't think I can even get into the chatroom now.
