Back In The Day

Postby Virlomi » Tue Sep 26, 2006 10:32 pm

Because I just don't think it's going to be possible to make the switch without a healthy dose of reminiscing, I thought we should have a place to get nostalgic about the days of limeade and Calvinball and "What the Rahl", so that all of our favorite Pweb quirks and inside jokes won't disappear into the Philotic Abyss (tm).

Oh, Calvinball. And Alliances. I'm still one of the sole surviving members of the Prarie Dog Alliance. The good ol' days, when HA and I used to duct-tape goats to the limeade tree.

Red Fox Alliance!

Then I think I turned traitor to the CA. But the CA sort of grew beyond Calvinball.

jebus has already hit on a bunch of former pweb delights in his various postings around the board (paul is winning at the new forum, did you know?)

but i think what i'll miss most, actually, are the posts themselves. i always loved the history of the board. that i could go back and read what was happening months or even years ago.

Remember when the goat was your ex in a costume?

Come to think of it.... that alliance was just you, me and Josh, wasn't it? And josh is here, so it seems to be going strong.

I wonder where LG is.... Haven't seen him in awhile and been wishing to talk to him lately.

It was you, me and Josh, wasn't it. Hrm. Good team there. Much potential for mischief.


Josh? Still our ally?

You know, that and your icon go well together. And I hear where you're coming from...

Sometimes I wonder if this generation will be the most oddly documented, because there are so many holes from when people wanted to erase their pasts.

I was pretty sure %you% wouldn't work anymore. *sad*

Though maybe someone here is wonderful with code and can make it work.

Yeah, but it would be ideal to be able to do it without always having to link to an external image.

I'm blue. I can't help it. I was, simultaneously, almost at my 3,000 post and my 4th anniversary.

Much sadness. I liked going back into old posts and seeing how clever I was. Or thought I was.

Onward and upward?

Oh, and I liked the invisible thread.

Oh, and remember the little forum folder that was always just kind of hanging in space by the PhiloticWeb logo? When it first showed up there, it bothered me, but I grew fond of it.

I lost... I lost my arguments with OG. And my Harry Potter 3 thread. And the time I burnt John.

ZOO SEX!!!
The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet him, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

I miss having a second line on for the topic names, so that you could put a saracastic (or sincere) little explanation for your thread title. I miss that a lot.

There's another glimpse of sky...
There's another way to lean
into the wind, unafraid.
There's another life out there...
