    I wonder who the very first person to join the boards was besides for Tal? It kinda sparks the imagition doesn't it? Thinking of the old site, though I know nothing of it.

    To me this is like learing the past of my land. Their should be a history of SP with a the dates of every thing down the when people posted(Sept. 22 to present for example) to the what was on the front page of SP. That would sweet!

    /me waves to the crowd :wave:

    As for being away so long, well another problem was my continued attempts to develop the ultimate in Spam busting
    http://www.data-techniques.net/cwm/contrib/tweetz/spam4.gif

    Those of you with longer memories might recall that the 'Post for random babbling, possibly with some sense, #2'
    http://www.sorcerers.net/ubb/Forum7/HTML/001525.html

    Is in fact merely the latest in a series of attempts to modify my original prototype the 'The Official 'Doh, nothing has been posted' Post'
    http://www.sorcerers.net/ubb/Forum7/HTML/000721.html

    One of my last posts on that original thread was 'Ahhh I see my experimental Spam Sink device is working satisfactorily. Back to the laboratory to perfect its working parameters. It will be interesting to see at what point the sink reaches it's theoretical maximum spamminess and explodes, from a safe distance of course.'

    Unfortunately, when it did finally explode I was sucked into an alternative spamtum theory type universe where all the posts seemed to make no sense
    http://www.futureforums.co.uk/pcgamer/
    http://pub84.ezboard.com/bmaturegamer
    http://www.ofpeditingcenter.com/cgi-bin/yabb/yabb.pl

    After months of painful struggle though I have managed to escape albeit at the cost of -2 to inteligence. So here I am again.

    Of course I don't know how long I'll stay as another result of being in the area of the spamsink explosion and also finally becoming Dr. Slappy EngD MSc BA(stard). I now find that I keep making what have been called spamtum leaps onto various message boards. Usually at the most awkward yet amusing time and normally just long enough to provide some simplistic liberal and patronising solution to a emotion tugging pertinent problem that has been presented in a black and white fashion. Or something.

    PS for funny stuff on the boards, just use the search function with keywords like funny, joke, etc. You are also advised to read this:
    http://www.sorcerers.net/ubb/Forum12/HTML/000001.html
    http://www.sorcerers.net/ubb/Forum12/HTML/000023.html

    That last one was a follow up to a much funnier account that I haven't been able to trace :(

    Slappy ... *sob* ... I miss you so much. And flaunting your links like that ... just makes me miss you more.

    Well Well Well. And I even sent out Yoda to find you Slappy. :D

    About that journal. Perfect :thumbs up: I has even gotten better since a month ago when you flashed that link up my alley.

    Fat Egg left when I came. Apparently this forum has to have one active molecular biologist *g*


    Talking about Missing person. Where did Headbanger go now? Keeping this standard crew together is harder than swallowing cat food. Miaww.

    *sigh*

    Many of the people who used to come here are gone. I am one of them. :D
    So, does anyone remember me? I don't expect being remembered considering how long ago I left, but I'm curious anyway. Someone might have good memory ;).

    Mister, we were mad. So mad that we started not even mentioning it. :p

    [​IMG] Personally, i enjoyed the boards much more with Fat Egg, Vicsun, Slappy, and co. around. Now I tend to be spur of the moment member(if i've got nothing better to do, I come here.). Never did post that much in my opinion though.

    I've been reading some old topics and there is quite a frequency of posts from someone called Sylvus Moonbow (and also some game guides I believe). What happened to him?

    [​IMG] yeah, i read a few of his old posts too.

    anything to do with too many expletives? :eek:

    edit (after reading explanation): oh, so that'd be why he was allowed to swear so much then. ;)

    [​IMG] Syl used to be part of the SP Team. But then he left and started his own site. Which has been closed for the last few months. So now he's gone completely.

    [​IMG] Sylvus used to be harrassed at one time on some other board - what was the reason for that back then?
