Re: Any old timers still around?

Wow, there are quite a few names I don't recognize.
Rincewiend, do you by any chance post at StarTrek.nl as well? I lurk there mostly, because my Durch isn't that good yet, but occasionally I make a post there.

There used to be a poster from Belgium who's name I can't recall. He was a Flaptain in 2002, so he must have joined in that year. I'm afraid I have a terribly bad memory for names and faces - could that guy have been psycho pere?

And LL got banned? That I missed. Now she was smokin' hot.
If she was, it must have been temporary. She would post sporadically but it has been years.

I can't believe Robert Loggia is going to be a father. He was a nutcase.
We were all many different things when we were young, Bonz. Time settles many down.

I'm pretty sure Pere is American, but you might be thinking of AdAstra.

Re: Any old timers still around?

no, not Addie. Addie is Dutch and used to live in a small town very close to Santaman's. I've been in contact with him until about 3 years ago. At that time the poor dear had to work on a translation for a car manual from German into Dutch and English. I helped him a bit which was a lot of fun He also wrote an excellent (and totally serious) article about the history of the toilet. Sadly, I lost contact when he moved.

The other guy I meant is younger than Addie and came from a Belgian town in the dutch-speaking part of the country. If I recall correctly he had a tank in his avatar for a while.
I don't know much else about him. He joined in 2002, was a member of EFCL (no founder, though, I believe), was possibly on Wordforge or Lonaf as well and posted at TK for a while. He was in his early 20s then, so he would have been born around 1980.
His political opinions were rather frighteningly right-wing which was why I broke off the contact very abruptly.
I once saw a photo of him. He was dark haired which stuck in my memory as it's not typical for people in his region and I had expected him to be blonde.
Somehow I always think of the letter P in association with him. Maybe his real name started with a P but I am not sure at all - I have a horribly bad memory for names.

Sturmde is another poster from back then we can put on the MIA list. He's still a Flaptain (which he already was back in 2002) and hasn't been here since February.

And speaking of missing oldtimers - what about the oldest oldie? When was big C last seen? Rumour has it that in the beginning he actually posted all over the board with the ordinary mortals. At my time he occasionally published announcements and requests for money. But nowadays he seems to have vanished completely. Could it be that Bonzie keeps his remains in her freezer?

PitAP, maybe? I know he was at LoNAF.

Re: Any old timers still around?

well, we're getting old (present company excluded, of course!) and it appears to be a typical oldtimer thing to remember ancient history better than current affairs

Thanks, M'sharak. It might indeed have been PitAP. Perhaps I still have an old chat log or a contact list somewhere. I'd just have to check who I have blocked.

As I said before my 12th anniversary is next April...2001 was a great year for nOObs, wasn't it? The mad rush of interest caused by the end of Voyager and the start of Enterprise resulted in perhaps the biggest surge in board membership in its entire thirteen-year history.

You and I used to be co-drivers in the Admirals' Race threads, remember? I don't know if we still are...for a good long while after I stopped posting in them I saw that you and I were still listed as co-drivers of cars in the races and sometimes did pretty well considering neither one of was no longer an active participant!

Looking at this thread I realize I just missed my 11th anniversary here.

That is true. But he seemed to be set apart from the typical young'uns back then, he had real issues that went beyond the trolling for lulz-type poster. I wasn't even sure he would survive to become older.

Mr. T'Bonz and I met Christian last year when we were in the Netherlands. I can say I had a drink with the great C-Meister. He's rather normal (not aloof or whatever people think of him) and much less shy than I think he was as a younger man.

Santaman and his brother came to town by train to meet up with us during the same trip (different meet-up though.) We had a nice lunch, with us laughing and talking incessantly about TrekBBS and all of the nutcases (including us, of course) around here.
