Hollow Matrix - Long Live Your Memory

Hollow Matrix was a brilliant place (formerly known as Broadie Car Park).  It was a place where web developers gathered to share brilliant ideas, to help each other through development blocks, and to just find friendships.  It was also a place of violent drama.  A place I wouldn't send my daughter in the dead of night.

But all in all, it was a home to me for a decent portion of my life.  But, alas, it seems that the time has come, like the bubble pop of the dot-com boom.  The bubble really popped long ago, but now, the day has come when finally hollowmatrix.com has outlived its existence.  One thing is, I hate when I go to a website and find that it has been replaced by a search.com.net.co.uk url just looking for link click revenue, so hollowmatrix.com is forwarding to my own website and will for the foreseeable future at least with a memorial here that you can read.

Edit 2010-09-22:  Okay, I put up a blog on religious issues if anyone likes.  Obviously the same URL: http://www.hollowmatrix.com/

It really was a great place. I met many friends on there and I haven't found a community like it since. Maybe one day I will!

It's a shame it has to close, I enjoyed the help I got from that site.

Maybe I'll make something of this eventually? ... just a thought. I was thinking of making a virtual discussion on religionish type things like your question on...well, you private question to me isn't a topic until someone brings it. Doesn't "Hollow Matrix" seem like a good name for this type of idea? Never worked for web stuff anyways.

Wow, I didn't see this coming (it's Nick; aka tensioncore, and starpg[in the BCP days])...

What a great memory it will always be.

I remember sleepless nights when I was 15 at my moms house on Vancouver Island just browsing and commenting/contributing on the BCP website, and then developing a hefty chunk of my php knowledge on HollowMatrix...

Many great memories, too bad she had to leave us.

I'd be in on some theological discourse, as well you know.
