Hello from a long-time LEGO enthusiast

Hi all,

Some of you may remember me from way, way, WAY back when from the rec.toys.lego days (see, I said it was WAY back) and The pause.com LEGO Reference Guide, which I created back in the mid '90s (before LEGO even had a public facing corporate website).

Anyway, our son is getting more and more interested in LEGO building (up til now, he's primarily been interested in collecting the CMFs) and so I've decided to reorganize and catalog my collection on Brickset. I'm about 1/3 of the way done, so it's back to Ikea for more shelves haha.

Just wanted to say "Hi"...crazy how things have change around the world of LEGO online in the last 20+ years ;)

    Lou... of course I remember you! Good to see you back on the scene. 

    And of course I remember your Pause.com's reference guide which pre-dated my first Brickset efforts in 1997 by a few years, IIRC.

    Now if I remember correctly, it formed the basis of the Lugnet reference, right?

    Hi Huw! Thanks so much for saying hello and for the welcome! Yes, that's right, I provided the pause info to Lugnet, although I think Lugnet had already started at the time and then I didn't have the time, personally, to maintain the pause.com so I figured it was better off going someplace than disappearing haha.

    Anyway, my love for the brick has never waned...just life and in the years since, I got married and we have a little boy and as I said, he's getting more into LEGO now. That combined with some other AFOLs at work means I'm spending more time with it myself. Smiles all around.

    Thanks again...so happy to see how important Brickset has become to the LEGO community...great job!

    I remember usenet, although for me it was rec.games.frp.dnd (iirc). Welcome to the rather more user-friendly (and the users are friendly) Brickset forums! I'd make a comment about #21033 but I presume you already know?! :)

    Ha, yes, thanks I have 21033 but haven't built it yet. I'm about 75% of the way through adding my collection to Brickset. But I woke up this morning with a stomach bug that's been going around, so my reorganizing / cataloging efforts will have to wait a day or two it seems.
