Happy 10 Years! This is me saying thank you for dealing with my idiosyncrasies. My video-game obsessed posts, my overly polite Canadian need to apologize. I want to say thank you to all the moderators, developers, members, lurkers, friends & acquaintances, the entire community. You make living online worthwhile. This place truly is 'Best of the Web'. Here's hoping for 10 more! Cheers.

Yay congrats! Fizz away!

I'm still a half year away from this. You might hear from me when it's time...

Thank you Fizz, for your interesting posts! I don't play video games, but I find myself sucked into reading your posts as there's usually an intriguing perspective.

Cheers and here's to Fizz20, Fizz30, Fizz40, and beyond!

Speaking as a 'first generation' high-activity MeFite, I am so glad you're one of the current generation's high-activity MeFites. Keep up the good work. To quote Airplane, "we're all counting on you". Keep it Fizzy.

Huzzah! Thank you, Fizz. I appreciate all of your posts, regardless of subject. For instance I was tickled by the recent (non-video-game-related) "Now Fizzing" especially because you were the one who posted it. And thank you for proposing the April Fool's Day joke show for the podcast!

Thanks for all the work that you put into your posts. I love video games but I don't seek out new ones the way I seek out film or music--maybe because a single game can be so much more time-consuming. I really appreciate having someone who is more absorbed in the news and the way of things sharing articles and perspectives.

Fizz, I like your posts and your comments.

Sometimes I see you mentioning that things are hard or that you're doubting yourself, and I wish you didn't feel that way: you're awesome, and you bring happiness into my web browser window. :7)

Hey, cortex: if you want to do some fund-raising, next February you could do paper or electronic valentines like we used to swap in grade school, á la Ralph Wiggum's "I choo-choo-choose you!" card.

I know right. It seems like yesterday that Matt was making some posts on the blue. How time flies by.

Damn time flies.

First time I noticed Fizz was when they posted Utah Attorney General Announces Execution on Twitter.

Plus ça change.

Based on your gaming and book posts, I'm convinced that we'd be great friends if we met in meatspace.

Keep doing what you do on MeFi. People (like me) notice and appreciate it!

meatspace.

This is the first time I've heard of real life being referenced in this way, and now I'm going to steal it for my own referencing. :)

Early this year, in the middle to terrible winter weather, you posted a MetaTalk with these words: "Thought it would be good to have a place for us to check-in and make sure we're all safe and warm. Take care of yourself, your friends, family members, and our furry loved ones (they get cold too)." I appreciated that, Fizz; it was thoughtful. Good on you!

Pops cork, mutters "where all just prisoners here-of our own device",

"Device" has meanings in this line that were not intended in 1976.

Anyway, happy decade, Fizz! I am about ten weeks behind you.

I tend to lag behind when reading threads, so I don't comment as often any longer, but I sure appreciate reading them! That BoI thread got me thinking of roguelikes again and I'm 15 hours in a ToME character, who's still alive.

My ten also went past without noticing - time does fly.
