Lol. Hoboken. My sister has lived in Hoboken for probably over 5 years. I feel a new bond to NG.

You're in Denville, eh? The school I taught at wasn't too far from there...

None of them knew. I expected them to figure it out on their own at some point, but none did!

I'd have given extra credit if they had. :)

Now, Ross, I hope you will stay more on NG.
For you, it will be probably boring on General forum.
So how about checking out Programming forum ?

You see, we enhanced!!

Updating chat is definitely on the list of things to do. Isn't someone working on a new chat client...?

Damn, that's pretty crazy. I would have put two and two together. I mean if my programming teacher helped build the original Newgrounds I would have flipped out. I mean an Alexa ranked top 1000 site, that's CRAZY!

All I can say is I would have definitely got that extra credit, and then asked you 10,000 questions about Newgrounds.

Yes, but it's been in limbo for a while now. In the mean time, there is a server set up to accomodate the current NG Chat. All that's required is a switch in the java applet on the Newgrounds chat page to redirect everyone to that new server, and I'm pretty sure everybody would be happy to wait for the more permanent solution.

I mean, basically webchat has been blowing immensely for the past year.

Good to see you're on NG again and programming again! This should bring some great results of NG's re-design. :)

Horray, now that means the site desing will be done faster. Whats it like meeting all the new people in the office for the first time. Like stamper and such?

I wish you were my I.T teacher, my one can't turn on the PC, she thought it had a virus.
The power cable was out, XD.

I've been going on NG since 2003(ignore my membership signup date), and you were already gone. I read about what you've done to NG, and I must really thank you for the automated portal , the NG BBS and NG BBS 2.0(the current one). It is an honor to see you here on NG for the first time. I never knew you've been this close to my home. I've been to Hoboken in recent times, for all I know it, I might have even walked in front of your home, wouldn't that have been a coincidence?

Welcome back Ross! It's blurry, but I remember reading about you. If youre going to be the one working on the BBS, please, please add an edit button. Other than that, I hope NG becomes even better thanks to you!
