Alright, registration time for Yet Another Delurker.
I have been following the OTC for quite a while, always in the shadows, always silent.
Round the end of the Madness, I finally decided enough was enough; too many in jokes I didn't get, too many questions unanswered, I had to read it ALL.
And so, ever since, I have been plodding along, caught Somewhere In Time (seriously, I can't believe this one was never referenced)
I paddled through the Sea of Madness, patiently reading in silence, intent on not registering before I reached the Present.
Yet today, passing NP 498*, I encountered this sentence that made me reconsider.

For the first time, I began to feel the Loneliness of the Long Distance Reader; the subscribe button taunted me all day, and finally here I am, joining the fray.
I shall now don my greaves of striding, and wait faster than ever, hoping to meet y'all in the Present, sometime.
*yes, I know, not very fast a blitz, but I'm wandering on at my own pace, enjoying the trip**.
**or trek, it seems, should I follow Vytron's nomenclature...

As the portal closes, you examine the paper. It is slightly singed from its time travel, but the message is still perfectly legible.
