Has it been so long?

It's been 3 years since I joined this site, looking for random bits of info on a certain crowbar swings game.

I guess I got lost in the OTF, and in Community, and am still here today. I've made many friends, learned a wealth of information about this and that, I've seen people come and go and return again. I've gone through a name change but not as many as old Smeggy. I now blame Durf for real life things, and no one has a clue about what I am talking about. I once feared the wrath of Gaile and Freet when I posted here, and now I am in the same shoes they wear ... to a point. I've met many potential drinking buddies, including Rplusplus, Drunkcajun, Shin, Aerojonesey, Kernelpops, Freet, Dredd, Krischan, SS, Superdave, Ash, Usufruct, Suggestivename, Doc, Xircon, Pie(Distancepieman on these forums), Rasitlin_Majere, ChicagoBullit, Dark Knight, Xora and several others that I got caught up with in that other game that is more addictive than crowbars. I have learned the value of Poing and Boobies, predicted when Dondrei would point out spelling or grammar mestekes ( I did that just for you Dondrei!) I never thought I'd see the day when Ash slowed down in posting. I can't say that I will ever be the same again, especially after setting foot in the Pal Forum ... I can still smell fresh gingerbread cookies!

I never thought I would step up and be a mod, and that was two years ago.

Many thanks Elly and to all for making the forums the way that they are!:thumbsup:
 
nOOb! :point:

It really is amazing how long this place has been around. Even more amazing is how people have gone from game to game and stuck together.

See you all (hopefully soon) at the Hellgate: London OTF!

Who was the mod before Stitifier, was it Andre? Something like that. Yeah, I have been here too long too.


I remember when stit was bragging about his MCATs. Sheesh, he must be in residency by now.

I would know what you're talking about, but my palship seems screwy at the moment. Damn you Durf!

It's been about the same time for me, I think. When was the Wallytar invasion? That was when I started posting regularly.

And because it hasn't been said enough: nub! :point:

I came early 2003. I can't believe it's been 3.5 years for me. The pic I have on Durf's faces page is over 5 years old now. That's just sick.

I think the Wallytar invasion was early 2004?

I forget who started it PLF maybe?

I started posting in OTF around the wallytar thing

and I hate it when people make threads like this because it makes the rest of us reflect on how long we've been here... a long time... too long..

I pretty much ducked the otf as long as stit was around... bastard

Gosh, I've been here 4.416666.. years! I remember I joined dii.net in April 2002 originally when I was working long shifts 6pm-6am after post 9/11/01 ops began and I was bored out of my mind in the middle of the night.

I remember when I used to host dozens of 'tars when the site stopped hosting them for us. I even ran a short lived P.O. box for people who didn't have a paypal account so they could donate and become pals. I remember some Dii.net stuff Anyee whipped up at some online t-shirt place. I bought about 4 t-shirts and a mousepad. I still have the mousepad and 2 of the shirts.

I've gotten in countless debates with Anyee about all sorts of stuff, Anakha about guns, gays and religion. I was here through the end of a 2 year engagement, 3 week marriage, annulment, engagement, marriage, deployment to Kuwait, honorable discharge, relocating to Utah, baby born and now for her first birthday!

I've made friends I know I'd be good friends in real-life (Lunarsolaris, Abigails_dad, Aerojonesy, ChuckD, Durf, Johnny, Dutch, Lioness, BAWW, BBB, Bas and about a hundred others I know I forgot). Even though most people disagree with some of my opions, I don't think anyone would find my contradict them. Though I bet there's plenty of examples of me putting my mouth before my brain. That happens frequently.

I remember when Bas still gave lapdances for hitting 1,000 posts. I remember playing forum assassin. I've even been put in for OTCARS before.. though I don't know if nominees are archived anywhere... *sniff*

This is a good place and I'd miss a lot of good people if this place ever went away, perish the thought.

noob.

EDIT: more cool people I remembered as I browse threads!

Wow, you are alive! I remember asking you to host my avatar back in the day. I can't believe how much things have changed. It's a shame I never got any of those dii.net mousepads or t-shirts. Wasn't there even a thong on there?
