This past year was a bit difficult for me and the stories here were a good source of escapism and a bit of solace. Most important to me, though, the people in this place gave me a shoulder to cry on and advice and empathy when I needed. 

So a happy Christmas to everyone (and if you don't celebrate Christmas just accept my good thoughts and best wishes) and thank you, especially to Timmy, for maintaining this site for all these years! And here's to many more to come!

Let me second that motion, and also observed that it's true that "it doesn't work without the people," however, someone has to lead the band, have the vision, and set the pace.

Hoping everyone is having a happy festal period!

I'm a bit late to this party but echo the sentiments expressed. Thanks to everyone for their contributions, even if the contribution is limited to reading the stories, but especially to Timmy for providing the vehicle by which the contributions are made.

Spent a little while going over Timmy's change log ("What's New, What's Hot") for the year 2019 and was quite amazed at the amount and quality of great stories he has offered up to us in these twelve months, with updates and postings every few days.
Thank you, Tim, for your unflagging energy and devotion to making this site one of the best there is over the decade or so I've relied on it for my daily read.

The site goes even further back than the start of the changelog, way before the point you limited yourself to. I've always tried to be selective of the tales I choose.

Happy New Year, Tim.  And the same to all who post stories or read stories here at iomfats.  I hope 2020 will find us all in good health and prosperous.
