    Happy new year from a not too distant future! My local time shows 1 minute into January 1, 2009.

    How was UO for you in 2008?
    Did you even log in?
    Did you ever log out?

    Tell us your local time in your post if you're not near the midnight chime. What year is it now where you sit?

    Its 2009 now. In 2008 I quit UO for the second time, back in January. I have suddenly wanted to come back and some people here have pretty much convinced me to return, so I'm thinking about doing it.

    It's exactly 12 hours for me.....

    Sadly to say....I haven't logged into UO in...I can't even remember how long.
    I've been following all the patches and publishes religeously, posting the news with the same vigor and cheer as I always do, even posting on the forums every now and then.

    Real life always has a way of getting in the way at just the wrong times, and I had to let my accounts go inactive...my houses are long gone by now, along with everything that I had aquired in the 5 years I've been playing.

    The luna house I had placed the day Origin went live is safely in the hands of my dear friend Corin, but everything else is gone.

    I'm hoping that the New Year brings good changes for me, and for all of you, my dear Stratics friends, and to the game I love so much...

    To the Devs, old and new..the ones that have gone....CatHat..Wilki...Silvani....the list is too long....to the ones that remain..Draconi, Leurocian.....Jeremy wherever you are I hope you're New Years is filled with good things.

    I hope to see a baby Master or Mistress of Disaster in the New Year (Nudges Kil and Tim) To Patrick and his Wife, my your little one bring you much joy in the New Year.

    Happy New Years UO.....to another great year.

    Larisa

    About an hour and a half before you posted this =)

    Didnt go out and celebrate, cos I had gastro - GREAT day to get it, right? =P

    I *do* get to celebrate twice though - my husband's family live in Spain, and in about an hour and a half we will be sitting in front of the webcam doing the countdown with them, and eating a grape with each chime of the clock for midnight =)

    Is strange for me, cos (generally speaking) they all stay home til midnight in Spain, THEN go out and party til sometime the next day - whereas here, you're pretty much lucky if you find anyone still standing at midnight ;)

    Midnight's about 5 1/2 hours away and I don't expect to be sitting at the computer when it gets here! We're going to my in-law's to eat and play cards like we do every New Year's Eve. We're also keeping our grandsons overnight, so around midnight I'm hoping hubby and I will be looking at those two little sweethearts fast asleep and maybe have ourselves a wee champagne toast.

    Happy New Year's to all!

    Almost 2am here, and I've been on the rum - it being Hogmany, it's practically an obligation ;D I would have posted earlier, but my best friend called. She's in WY now, (and I still feel like I'm missing a limb; come home woman!) so, when it gets there, all the best to you guys. As we say here Bliadha Mhath Ur ;D
