Vaguely familiar. Might be from when I was still lurking, before I finally signed up.
there used to be someone who'd quite regularly sign his posts with " 'nuff said". Can anyone remember who that was? I believe it was a male poster.
And is Geckoboy still around?? Such a nice guy!
I miss Lord of the Weather. He was my buddy.
He was a nice guy.
right! How could I forget him?! I tried to google him but got no results Does anyone know his real name? Maybe we could find him that way. It's how I found PreatorX's twitter page.
And what happened to the matrixman? He was a rather nice kid once you got to know him. And wasn't there a poster named Unimatrix Zero as well?
And at the risk of receiving a warning: what became of Skinofevil? He might have been a troll but he had brains and was a pleasant chat partner and a surprisingly good houseman - we once had a chat about removing stains from the carpet, the difficulties of getting decent kitchen towels and swapping recipes for using up leftovers. LOL all the younger folks left the chatroom at Warp 10 that evening!
Why would you receive a warning for that?
Yeah, he was awesome!
Wacky, I thought that the hard core of TK was not to be mentioned here. Looks like the board really has changed a lot over the last decade.
Feels kinda good
I just had a look at my old contact lists and found a lot of people that were around in 2002. Some of them still post here, occasionally:
Darkening (he's such a sweetie!! If he's still single, I might be tempted...)
Evil Robert (not evil at all but awfully nice)
Harkley (and Flower, of course!)
Katie (also known as Katie543)
Marvin The Martian (also known as Utopia Planitian )
Rihannsu Love Slave
Sgt Cynic (also known as Davros)
StarMan (aka Cakkan, Maelstrom, The Rancid Ecclipse, Iniquitous Pernicious, The Grumpy Mole, fluorolight, Fun Loving Dave)
StarscreamX (heehee, that's one we already found )
Stueyross (aka StuRat)
The Evil Trekkie
UES Bremen (aka Intelligence)
VGRlover (aka someone's mask)
Wow that's a lot of contacts.
I know some of these names might not be familiar, but when talking about old timers who have moved on, I remember when the DS9 DVDs came out and the DS9 forum was pretty much rocking that entire year. Everyone was pretty much watching the series for the first time because it's never on syndication and the comadrie that took place there was something I will never forget. I still miss some of those people to this day.
I miss Red77
Men got on her tits and she left. Whaddya gonna do?
^ She left because of that? I always just thought that was another joke thread and she was just having fun with it.
Are you sure you're not thinking of Arianwen?
Remember both posters. Not sure where matrixman is now. I did hear something about him a few years ago, that he had finished college was doing something with law.
And Unimatrix Zero is still in Tasmania - I think. Someone else asked about him. Haven't heard from him in a number of years.
Are on lonaf, if memory serves me correct.
Many have disappeared from the internet, while others like Evil Robert and Elysium are on facebook.
There are some names there I have forgotten about.

for me, been here a while, browsed a year before i signed up back then, almost 10 years, wow
I don't think anyone's really talked about TrekBBS on TK for years now (or the other way around.) I don't think there's really any bad blood with anyone now.
Skin hasn't posted for years, sadly.
Matrixman has posted on REFCL and been in TK chat this year.
Cal posted on LONAF just the other day (I remember thinking "he hasn't posted in a while.") Plenty of the others you mentioned are still on LONAF/TK/REFCL.
thanks for the tip, Wacky! I had no idea that REFCL is still online. Last time I looked (some 8 years ago) it was a rather crappy place, full of flamers and trolls.
Most TKers have different names now and are therefore difficult to recognize. Except for a69aries, perhaps - his spelling was always rather... well, let's say 'individualistic'
I think I'll propably rejoin Lonaf, depending on who's still active there. There are a few people I don't want to meet as they've behaved like absolute idiots in the past.
I wasn't aware that there's still a TK chat. Is there a java applet like the one Terran runs or is it accessible only by a mirc client?
And in case someone misses Daystrom: he sold his appartment some time ago and moved closer to his son (who by all accounts is one of the best students of the year, making his dad almost exploding with pride). For years Day has been suffering from heart troubles, but they have grown very much worse lately. Frankly, I don't think he has more than another 6 or 7 years. I'm scarcely in direct contact with him as he's hardly ever online now and he's way too lazy to snail-mail, but we call each other on the phone, occasionally, and his family and mutual friends keep me updated.
If someone would like to send him greetings or a get well message, please PM or mail them to me and I'll print them and forward them to him.
It's good to see a post from you!
^and from you, too You were an EFCL member, if I remember correctly
Oh hello thread. I mostly post in the Doctor Who forum these days. But I'm still about. 12 years later!
^I remember you, and I don't go into the Doctor Who forum
Separate names with a comma.
