15 years have now passed since 5 of us pulled together to create this place.

 

Happy birthday Toontastic!

8 actually. Around the time they gave me a proper job that didn't involve sitting around on my arse all day :lol:

 

No photos either... I'm probably now as old as Leazes Mag was back in the day, just far less grumpy! :thumbup:

All good with me. Just older , no wiser and one kid that is actually now an adult! :blink:

 

Lots has changed over the years, was made redundant 2½ years back and now work for a well known budget hotel chain who have a couple of places in the city - one of which I look after so shall be home from time to time.

Oh yeah and I got into coaching youth football... that's a great way of finding new ways to argue with stupid adults parents... :unsure:

Congrats Ant. Aye, everything it's shit at the moment. I had a big silver wedding planned, cancelled. I'm 50 in 2 weeks, no celebrations. Mind, might well get divorced soon on the cheap too I guess.

Congrats Ant :D

 

I sometimes wonder if this place will run until we're all dead, to be picked over by future generations researching long suffering NUFC fans. I still consider myself a newer member and I've been on here 8 fucking years now :lol:

 

Wonder how long it'll go.

Cheers 😊

 

More likely till im dead and my bank account that pays for servers/licencing is empty 😂

 

Actually was serious about the big upgrade again soon I've been putting it off for ages due to work(fcking brexit)  but actually so need to do a full server move/board upgrade in a month or so. 

It'll be easier than last time since it's my own "solution" in place now rather than what I took over, but still a major bit of work

 

Also need to circulate details of logins and "if I'm hit by a bus" contingancy stuff again tbh most of the guys who got it originally are gone or infrequent now.

“Have you considered leaving toontastic.net a donation in your will?”

Also congrats @Ant 

 

😂 Thankfully the changes I made over the years  means it doesn't cost much to run, prob about a £1k a year with hosting/licenses and what not. 

 

But it's unmanaged to keep it at that kinda cost which means if it breaks I fix it or its fucked, touch wood we've been OK for the decade since I took over the techy bit with little unplanned downtime.
