Cauldron Cill Turns Five!!!
« on: January 03, 2012, 06:28:16 pm »
Happy anniversary to us!

The very first shift of our very first cycle began at sunset on 3 Jan 07, exactly five years ago.  And by "exactly", I mean "I'm posting within an hour of it," because the first shift was Mattie's then just as it is now (she's one of the eight original members who are still with us), which tells me it was Central Time at a lower latitude than mine (it's just before sunset here; it's probably just after for Mattie, as I type).  I didn't time it that way on purpose, but it tickles me that it worked out so closely.

While there will be an annual check-in, as is usual come anniversary time, this is not the check-in thread; that will be in the private board, so that we can also make sure Cill members have access there.  If you're a Cill member but don't see that thread, let the SIG Leaders know by posting here or PMing Juni, Finn, or me.

Otherwise, this thread is for celebrating!

FIVE years!?!  Wow.

That's really pretty incredible.  I'm so honored to be a part of this group, for so many reasons.

Thank you all for five wonderful years of friendship and support, and here's to fifty more!

I can't see the private board at all. Come to think of it, I don't think I have been able to see it since we moved over from SMF.

Click this link, join the Cill group, and I'll approve it. Unfortunately there's no way to invite members.

So is it time for the Cill to go to school?
