Five Years of TMN
TMN is five years old today. My thanks to all the contributors (there are far too many to list here) who have helped make this project a success. My thanks also to the readers who keep coming back day after day. And, of course, my thanks to Delta Tao, Joe and all the GMs, who continue to make this all worthwhile.
What eventually became TMN got its start a little over seven years ago as the Fishwrap, a peculiar in-character newsletter that I sent out originally via USENET (in comp.sys.mac.games.adventure) and then later via Yahoo Groups. I've started to move the old Fishwraps into backdated entries here at TMN, so they'll be searchable in the archives. That's going to take some time to complete. I've never sworn off producing new Fishwraps, so there still may be some new ones in the future.

Here's to thooming great next five years!
Thanks for the 5 years of hard work! I, as in many exiles greatly appreciate all your efforts
Thanks Para for your incredible contributions to CL!
Congratulations and thanks for all your hard work Para!
Nice work :)
Oddly enough i ust unsbbed from Fishwrap as it's dead apart from spam. Be sure to warn us if you use it again :)
Congratulations. Consistantly a top rate site that I have enjoyed visiting the past 5 years. I look to another 5.
Actually, there is absolutely NO spam on the Fishwrap Yahoo list. I have that list locked down; no one but me can send. You can remain subscribed to that with no worries.
Some of the other old CL Yahoo groups have been getting a lot of spam lately, unfortunately. The FMOCR list is getting a lot of spam.
Yeah, I was looking at my Yahoo! Groups a couple of weeks ago and saw Fishwrap and was trying to remember if it came first or second. Regardless, it's been quality all along. Especially those Polerand entries!
How about a happy birthday Pay Pal gift to Thoomcare? Thanks a lot for all the work, Para.
Many congrats, Para. :-D You're CL's ambassador and a great one.
By the way, the ads at the top are hilarious, especially Phineas and the Drake.
Oops, the last one was by me. Congrats again! :-D
Congratulations and thank you for all the hard work.
Thoomcare has been one site I've been consistently reading for many, many years - I hope to read it for many to come!
Thoom! TMN has always been the one place I've checked during my extended stays away from the lands. It's been a great resource these past 5 (7) years.
5 years? balls where does the time go. I cant believe I've been playing CL, yet alone reading thoomcare for that long. yer the guy Para.
Congrats and excellent work, Paramedic!
Thank you Para for so many years of dedication to Clan Lord.

Whoot! All hail to you, Para, for five great years of TMN. You do a great service to the ClanLord community, and you do it with humor and grace! Thoom! (If you don't mind my saying so...)
Para, thanks for all the work you put into Thoomcare. I read it almost everyday... ;p I love it. Nicely laid out, informative, and plain perfect.

Many thanks, Para, for keeping us informed over the years; thanks also to the reporters that keep the news coming!
Cheers and beers to the next five years!
