Holy small world, batman!
The strangest thing just happened to me. One of our new people's username seemed familiar to me, so I messaged them.

It turns out, I've known them online since the mid 90s when we both frequented a chat room dedicated to a favorite TV show.

MIND. FREAKING. BLOWN! Shocking


Has anything like this happened to anyone else on here? It's just so freaking bizarre, I'm still trying to wrap my head around it.

We think it must be a sign from God. Laugh out load

Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.

I've been using this moniker since before the internet....

It hasn't happened yet....

You were "onlinebiker" before there was an "online"?? Consider

I found someone from a social anxiety forum I used to go to for a short time on a not very active atheist chatroom.

Years ago I made out with this one guy at a party. A little later on, I went to visit my sister at college and he ended up being one of her best friends at school. It was a lil awkward when she "introduced" us Wink

I have almost always used Shadow Fox as my name on the internet, Either that or Vasarto. No matter the forum, no matter the website. I basically almost always have used it everywhere. So far, I have yet to acquaintance myself with someone from other places. Heck, I can't even convince any others I know from other places to come here.


My Youtube channel if anyone is interested.

As a matter of fact -- yes.....

I did text only BBS (bulletin board service) for many years before the internet existed......

My first computer was operated in DOS -- Windows didn't even exist at the time....

The BBS crowd was accessed by telephone modem - and generally only one person at a time could use it... I knew of one local site that actually paid for four hardline phones - so 4 users (5 is the sysop was on) could "chat" at the same time.... quite a deal at the time...

My first modem was a 9.6 k..... When we got 28.8s we couldn't believe how fast shit went....

You had DOS? I had PDP-11 and CP/M.

PDP-8, 4KB memory (12-bit words), FOCAL, Teletype w/paper tape
I still have the manuals.

My first modem was 110 but I moved up to 300 baud fairly soon thereafter. 9600 was an amazing upgrade when it came.

You people are really, really, really old.

Shackle their minds when they're bent on the cross
When ignorance reigns, life is lost
