    Excellent article, really makes me wish that I had arranged to go to ICNY. (It sounded so /)^3^(\ )

    It was great meeting you, Terin. I'm glad you could make it.

    It's funny, as you mentioned @myrmidon struggling to figure out how to describe what Icrontic is, I find myself after nearly five years of membership and more event trips than I can count having the same issues when people as me about it. What we have here is so astoundingly irregular on the internet, how can anyone outside of it possibly understand?

    I think the greatest thing you said about ICHQ was "At ICHQ time didn’t exist." What a statement. Time doesn't exist at ICHQ. It's like a vacuum. You know when to eat, but that's about the only cues you have to the time of day. You go to bed at 6-8AM, wake up whenever you feel like it, and do it all over again.

    ICHQ is a place in which the long fingers of time have no grip.

    I'm sad I didn't get to meet you. Your experiences of meeting the people of Icrontic remind me much of the first time I met everyone. I can't thank "Magic" enough for introducing me to these wonderful people. It truly is something incredible and unique, and you have made friends that will last a lifetime and beyond. The Icrontic community is welcoming, and events truly do disregard time. Everyone is a friend here. :) Welcome to Icrontic, Terin!
  • Truely awesome ICNY experience this year! I never feel more comfortable than when I'm around all you guys.

    Terin, great article! I had fun with the imaginary soap opera as well :)
  • A highly amusing read. I hope we see you at ICSP!

    Thank you guys for the warmest welcome in the world! It was great meeting those of you that I did, and I'm excited to meet those of you that I didn't. I'm glad that my experience mirrors everyone else's; it just proves my impressions right.

    I am always so happy to hear that people still find IC indescribable and appealing after they start poking around. Icrontic is like no place on the net. Honestly, other than my church youth group some 21 years ago, I have never felt so welcome and so at ease with all the facets of my complex life. I love Icrontic... I love so many of you guys and gals. I count many of you as best friends and I miss you the minute I leave ICHQ and look forward to seeing you.

    I... LOVE... ICRONTIC
  • Happy you had an excellent trip. Who would've known we had such an awesome writer in our family. Welcome to the gaming family as well and thank you for inviting me to this charming site.

    I'm writing a follow up to this piece. Thinking about naming it "Understanding Addiction, Icrontic, and You: My Year on the Internet".
