BYTO will be missed. TD needs to accomodate the snark, humor and craziness that was a fun part of the site.

There is no May and Mayer. They're made up.

Noon Canada time. The internet is just getting there around noon if it leaves the mainland at 8 a.m.

I said "by noon". DNS propagation is a funny thing. You never know how long it's going to take. In this case, it was about 20 minutes.

It was a slow painful death but I am glad it's finally over. It was hard watching it suffer as long as it did.

Sad to see the site go the way of the dodo. Much thanks to RP and others for all the effort over the years. Surely the current state of the Twins played some role, but I'm sure the BYTO spirit will live on.

RP, I never got a chance to thank you for all the hard work you put in. I wanted to do so over on the BYTO board but never got the chance(combination of being a lazy ass and then spent yesterday in hospital waiting rooms with a dead phone). I mostly lurked but enjoyed every snarky and informative comment. Now I'm going to have to get a new homepage.

It was a great 6 years. Thanks RP for all the work ya did to keep it going over the years. We had a lot of laughs over there and most of them I'll forget, but never will I forget itstimetogetreadys meltdown. Of course, byto.com gets some serious recognition from Gardy in his post game chat the day before it is shutdown...I knew he lurked our site for ideas. Is there any chance we can just add another forum sub-page for BYTO'ers?

Loved it. BYTO will always be that special safe haven for basement dwellers. Time to come to the light I guess.

I thought he had mentioned battling his tail off but only caught the tail end of it. I tried finding it online but no such luck. If he did though, that's sweet. Makes it a fitting end.

I believe that is what is referred to as a John Edwards.

We should def try to keep this thread as active as possible, perhaps it can turn into a meta critique of TD and the current Elitism levels residing there.

i think the byto folks should be segregated from the rest of the td folks so our tone is more readily understood. it'd be like wearing an ed hardy shirt to a club - you've already tipped everyone off that you're a d-bag so it won't come as a surprise when you act like one.

At the least a special designation (i.e. certificate of elitism) on the profile section would KICK ASS! Rocketpig, get on it!
