I'm baaaaaaaack

Postby InterimOfZeal » Fri Sep 27, 2013 3:57 pm

InterimOfZeal, after his many and varied travels, has remembered SNAFU, the first positive message board. Unfortunately, he forgot his password and e-mail, so he needed to reincarnate as... this. Ugh.

Any oldschoolers still kickin' it around here?

Layne, Dave (presumably?), Jay, Smaug, you kiddos still alive?

I started doing stand-up, and I figured shooting the shit with you guys and seeing what you're up to nowadays would be fun. :D

It's not exactly... "fine", to have two accounts. We could work on getting you your old one back though.

Also, everyone you mentioned no longer frequents the site. Cept Jay, he's in the RP Section though.
Stufflikehearts - He is a Sith Lord. I love Blood Lord :3
Jeffffey - Blood, you look at the information someone says, look over what really happened, and reply in a way that makes them realize what they were really thinking.
Light10s - Blood Lord! Your avatars are becoming more epic. You make me feel like getting on all fours and submitting my loyalty and obedience to you.
Fievel - Numerous campaigns and conquests, countless bodies decaying after the abandonment of victorious battlefields. Such is the life of Blood Lord.
Dusk_Imp - Blood Lord is like a celebrity here. Everything he does is pure awesome. ALL HAIL BLOOD LORD
Doctress Who - Why couldn't there be a Blood Lord in every forum? It would make life so much easier.

Oi, I'm trying to drag the guy back into the community and you guys turn him off by saying "all of your old friends are DEAD!". :p

I REMEMBER INTERIM OF ZEAL

hi

all your friends are dead.

the few of us that are left are a tight-knit community trying to breathe life back into it.

i remember the good times and some of us think they will come again.

and dave just makes his paper now. he doesn't frequent the forums anymore. he's all about his merchandise store: sharkrobot. he has deals with a few big internet things, so he makes his money.

Sup Zeal. I still kick around occasionally and Grey is still here. But yeah, lotsa people have left.

But there's some newer people that are cool. I guess!

It actually goes back further than that. The first and if I recall the 2nd draft of the forums were lost in a great forum rebuild/rehost event that I really don't recall the details. I don't know when we all started hanging around here... 2001-02? Something like that.

Gather round young ones where I will tell you a tale of the horrifying time that was the internet of the late 90's/early 2000's.

Snafu looked like this:
Image

AOL jokes were still so relevant we made comics about them.
Image

Random web games could be found and joined for hours of fun, and often had a VGC/Snafu group of regulars waiting around in them. Except sometimes we'd forget to close our rooms and get a bunch of posers. This seemed important and bothered us for reasons I can't remotely recall.
Image

Desktops and social networking looked like this:
Image
:edit: ^ The green tasktray icon is celebrating that I have 164mb of ram free!

.... does anybody even use chat programs anymore?

A little later it did evolve to something less eye gougingly bad.
Image

Meme's looked like this
Image

Though we didn't have a term for them at the time.

Man, I wish I could find the 'forum group' drawing from those days. My avatar stems from it, and I've been evolving it to match my look over time lol .

Continuing - This was the pinnacle of humor. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Zt-pD0I-Zk

Featuring music by ComradeF of these forums, artwork by Big Evil of Dominion/64 Demons, and animation by me. All to parody a viral video before that was a term.

It was a lower resolution time.

I've been wondering, what happens when a DDM comes back? Do you get brought back as a Mod, or a regular member? Or do you keep the DDM title?

No not really. The only things I have that are even active from those days are my SA forums and Steam accounts. I've occasionally searched to see who's up to what from then, but not many are making waves or going by the same handles at least.

I imagine they've all grown up and have kids and stuff that keep them way busier than whining about final exams on a webcomic forum.

In my case it's a simple matter of hobby changes. Used to be webcomics and waving my epeen, and now it's this:

I'm still around on Steam. Account halogray - though Left4Dead2 is pretty much all I play with any regularity.

It would be both messy and amusing to have 2 Greys in the mod chat.

Also, nice bike. As cool as many motorcycles look I wouldn't ride any of them. To me they are all suicide machines. Don't feel safe at all riding one.

Well, Skype is still going. MSN less so. Most youngsters these days seem to chat on tumblr, reddit, and facebook...

I called a cab the other day and the cabby was a big motorcycle fan. I don't know anything about them, but he spoke to me in a way that made me feel like that guy thought any person with a penis was supposed to like either that or cars. I don't know much about either really.

Nice to see such an old member again, even if briefly, really it is a very nice thing.
And i loved the reminiscing, thank you.

I used to use MSN, when it was absorbed into skype i stopped using chat programs.
I really miss using them. Ever since the fun of it was taken from me i've felt like i've distanced myself from people.
