Fair Østgarđr, I hope you are warm and snug despite the wintery chill that besets us.
In these cold days, I ask those of you whom have been around for two decades to cast your memory back to the turn of the millenium.
Do you have stories from these years you can share? A box of photos from events in the back of your closet?

Drop us a line here, comment on the individual annals, grab me at commons, etc.
