You can SERIOUSLY waste some time here...
« on: July 16, 2012, 02:19:04 PM »

Especially if you remember the 2001 pre-crash WOXY boards. It'll take a moment to load, then BAM!

Have fun!

I didn't look too hard but I only saw one post by me... a month or two later and I was posting as if it were my job, and very nearly lost my job because of it.  Good(ish) times.

As an aside, once upon a time I registered on these boards as Throbblow, with mischievous intentions, apparently it go purged at some point though.

I didn't know you were Throbblow. Too funny! I think you and I came on board at about the same time. I found my sign-on date - 29 April 2001. Many of the threads and links weren't captured, but I saw C-Lando's sign on date was (I think) May 2000, and Slowdog's was I think January or Feb. 2000. All the WOXY DJs signed-on in (I think) Dec. 1999.

Looking at the site makes me wish we all still had the time to play those games that CTJester used to come up with. I never got to participate much in them back then because I couldn't log in at work and the boards were fairly quiet in the evening...but as soon as I got a promotion and didn't have a manager looking over my shoulder...

I was not Throbblow on the WOXY boards, I don't think anybody knew who that was, though it was always suspected that it was a sock puppet belonging to someone that we did know that used it to screw with us.

I snapped up the name here, thinking it might have entertainment value, but I never did anything with it.

I played far too much in those days and it very nearly cost me my job, which would have been really bad as I'm still with that company to this day.  Oh the stupid things 23 year old me said back then, and stupid opinions I argued...

Another lurker here. I was amazed that you all got together at the Mad Frog for the first board bash. I would never have predicted that I would travel to Ohio (more than once) for baseball games and concerts.

Someone calculated that if you printed the whole thing out, it would be 46 ft by 23 ft or so, and that's with the people being about 1 mm. If you enlarged so you could see the people - at about 1 cm, you'd need an airplane hanger wall.

I decided that it's better in that little window frame than on a poster. Of course, I also read that Waldo is in there somewhere but I haven't found him yet.

How long before J.J. Abrams turns this into a TV show?
