It’s mine (and DB’s) birthday on the 11th May but my birthday was somewhat overshadowed by the birth of little Louie on the 10th this year. She’s lovely if a little small for a person (about the right size for a newborn though).
This week also saw the death of one of my regular go-to websites. The IJDb has finally closed after 11 years of life. I spent more time there than pretty much any other site using its rec.juggling interface for the majority of the time. I met numerous people online first through its pages and chat room. Hello to Lisa, Sun, Mini and their mum, Popstar Dave, Greg and more. I remember meeting Fak and being surprised that she was female.
Hopefully another site comes along to replicate this loss.
Major thanks to Colin and his minions and all who gave the community its colour. RIP IJDb.
