Re: Any old timers still around?

I've been here since before Enterprise premiered, but I don't recall the exact date (I just know that the date in my profile is wrong). I don't post very often any more because my job has been crazy-busy for the past year. In fact, I think this is the first time I've logged on in nearly a month...

Re: Any old timers still around?

@ ElimParra: Hi there, nice to see you again. We were Flaptains together, back in 2001/2.
I had no idea Phoonzie was still around! Thanks for the info.

The chat admin I meant was Rovinski. I tried to trace him online but he completely vanished in 2003.
Santaman is a RL friend of mine and does occasionally post here. He's pretty busy hunting spam bots at TerranBBS where he's an Admin. And he still runs Terranchat every Saturday.

Btw, is there still a TrekBBS chat?

Just in case some of you didn't know there's a TrekBBS Chat page on Facebook. Quite a few of us have already joined.

Well if it makes you feel any better, for you is actually around 12 years 10 months.

Re: Any old timers still around?

^ I never use facebook. They are an absolute nightmare when it comes to protection of personal data.
There used to be a mirc chat, ages ago. TerranBBS still runs one. They have a very handy Java chat applet. Maybe we could have one here as well.

Re: Any old timers still around?

Not sure what the "old timer" threshold is in context of this thread, but I've been a member here since August 31, 2000 and on the large, it's been an enjoyable ride.

I even think I have an old TrekBBS "card" floating about out there somewhere.

Edit: Ah, yes - here it is!

Yeah, there've been several iterations of the IRC channel. There was the official one a long time ago, then some unofficial ones. For a long while, #terranbbs and #efcl took the place of an unofficial TrekBBS room (and for a length of time, I ran #efcl). A couple (few?) years back, Danoz ran another #trekirc iteration that was strong for a while, then traffic tapered off.

Re: Any old timers still around?

Pere! Long time no see! We were Eternal Flaptains together, back in 2001.
Should we register a new #trekbbs? It might be fun to chat with the other oldies and to make friends with the newbies.

Santy, remember: like a very good wine, we get better with age

speaking of age: is Teelie (TLE / The Lonesome Ensign) still around? He was one of the very first TBBSers, if I am not mistaken.

And dare I ask what happened to Lisa? Or is she not to be talked about? I've heard rumours that range from her getting pregnant (highly unlikely, considering the fact that she was online 24/7 and simply had no time for propagation) to her parents forcing her off the computer for her neglecting her studies (that's imo the most credible version).

Re: Any old timers still around?

I'm not seeing the need to dredge up some of the less savory aspects of the past, Rhubarbodendron.

Lisa resigned (as per a direct phone conversation with her) and moved on with her life. Frankly, I think she got tired of the incessant shit happening at the time, partly due to the fact that she should have remained a mod of a small forum - she didn't have the tough personality necessary to deal with some of the realities of running a messageboard where people are anonymous - hell, it almost broke ME the first 2 years I ran it, and I'm no shrinking violet!, and I think that in and of itself was enough to make her leave, no necessity for dragging in her personal life.

Frankly, the past should stay the past. It's nice to see people from way back, but the board is way different now, no wars - either poster or moderator/admin or owner and it's great that it's that way. Not as interesting for those who love drama, but a helluva lot easier to run and more pleasant for most.

Have you kept in contact with her through the years? How is she doing these days. I hope life is treating her well. I know Lisa only did it a short time, but she did take a lot of crap at the time and that was a pity.
