1994-2006. Not a bad run on a BBS, all things considered -- though honestly the last time I posted was probably sometime in 1999.

Yeah, the Tikva account's been gone for a few years. Probably most of the people on there these days have never heard of me. Which is fine; it's just weird, given the jobs I used to do there. Wonder if Dis Iss> is still around?

No more Tikva/Spatch '96!!! :(

No C'thufir, Nyarladeneb and Yog-Spatchoth, either. Nor Bel, Biv or DeVoe. No more "heehee fire :-)" and most definitely, nowhere in this world is there any more posting for posting's sake and for the pleasure of reading one's own posts.

And Heath won't come on your sundae for 35 cents more.

I still *srednop*, actually. And I was bouncing around the other day going "hee hee fire". But I'm weird.

Moment of silence for the Hey Guy, please. *bows head*

OMG I hadn't thought about that Heath in I don't know how long. I remember one of my roommates pining after him.

Oh, god. I just remembered I used to FM Flirting>. Well, it was worth it to delete all the posts in there every once in awhile.

I used to FM Triangle Cafe> - is that forum even around anymore?

Koldoon hasn't been around on ISCA for a very long time. I miss it sometimes. I miss it, and the people I knew from it, every now again. Though some, like Tikva, I've kept track of to some degree.

Remember that time, on ISCABBS, when it was lame? Yeah?

Although the time I was in Boston and you were twitted and I had to log in and ask why was pretty funnie.

I was twitted while on vacation in Seattle (I'd spent an afternoon on my own at Abbe and Molly's apartment baiting someone or other in Weird>) and didn't get untwitted 'til I'd come back from Boston. I seem to recall someone writing "TWIT" on my computer and everything.

GOOD TIMES
GREAT OLDIES

I log in just often enough to hold the ID, because a few of the people who still stick around would looove to grab it, and I still care just enough to piss 'em off.

Citadel is alive and kicking in several variants around. ISCA ran off Dave's Own "We Lost The Source No Really We Mean It And That's Why There Hasn't Been A Code Update Since 1995" Citadel.

Yeah, I was logging in every so often to keep my account alive for a while, but the last time I tried, it was gone. (This was 2 or 3 years ago, I think.) Ah, the good old days...

Aw. RIP.

I remember I was sad when I let my account die - but I hadn't posted in ages, either. I think I dropped it some time in 2001.

(Frankly, I'm surprised the place is still around!)

I had that happen to me sometime in 2003 or 2004. Dang it all. Then again, that places scared me when I logged in - I still would get random x'es immediately upon logging it. Then again, I was the fool that picked a feminine username. :)
