I first met Ron in 1991 at San Jose State in the dorms (the RA's corrected us and said they were residence halls, but "dorms" is only one syllable), after I moved out. I used to visit our friend Stacie there. Later, he used to call trex from my apartment. Later still, he dated my roommate Angie.
Half a year later, I was finally validated on trex, and Oreo (his trex handle) wasn't logging in anymore. He moved back down to Southern California, but now he's back. I see him around at trex events, Rocky Horror, and science fiction conventions.
