I remeber these epic self-looping running gags, Especialy one with a tripod.
I LOVED these self-referential almost fractal jokes. It was the beginning what nowadays is clearly understood as "meme". Tiny information bits aranged, rearanged, distorted , inverted, reintroduced.

There was a Joe looks funny thread.


I remember the Camera Captioning Contest. I submitted a few captions, but never won.

I think it's actually quite fascinating to see that our "explosion in size" was virtual, rather than something real.

Used to be that towns exploded over time, and looking back you would wonder how that came to be. Where something starting as quaint and cosey morphed into something big and "statistical".

I wonder whether some day I will tell a nephew/niece about the times when places on the internet had "a couple of handfull of people exchanging ideas" rather than millions squabling.

I uploaded a screenshot from Rango to imgur, because i wanted to know where they took it from, because my brain keeps pestering me with the idea that i have seen that picture almost identically somewhere else (the part with the giant eye)

5000 hits. Not that I got the answer I was seeking... But it somehow baffles the mind somewhat. (And unarguably that is NOTHING compared to other things on the net.)

I remember when 3D Realms Forums didn't exist. Instead we posted on AOL Keyword: Apogee. Joe Siegler ran the board.

I remember when that got taken a step further with golden dollar signs and "It's gold, it's gold, it's finally gold, baby!" music... :D

I had joked that that should have been the forum theme when DNF went gold... :D

You still post here?!

Oh oh oh AND this website was at http://www.apogee1.com and the brand name 3D Realms didn't exist yet AND I was in middle school because it was the mid 90's.

I feel old all of a sudden. Is that normal?

You're only as old as you feel.

I remember MrEricSir.

Most of my posts were from the silly forums, such as the three word story and such. In the last few years, my posting has sort of come to a halt. I mean, I don't post as often as I did.

I remember the Space Stations thread, the Ted theme for the main page, the Meddling Kids forum, Joe's photos with captions like "Not gonna happen!" and "FNORD!" and the UnrealEd section being active.

I remember threads making it to page 2 after one day without a new post. Those were the days.

The relationship/"get a girlfriend" thread where many of us were sharing our experiences/giving advice which was lost.

And the Diablo 2 thread, of which I have some screenshots still about of me and some other 3DR forumers :) oh and screenshots of our FEAR multiplayer matches!

Regards,

Yickle!
