Wouldn't this year be the 10th birthday of TWHL? Or we have missed it by some months?

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the members of TWHL who have tolerated my bull**** throughout the years and who have helped me with my mapping and who have listened when I needed to ask or say something.

This is the earliest record of anything on TWHL that I could find.

So we've missed it by 8 months, if you wanna go by that.

Should we do something as a belated celebration?

Wow, vintage black TWHL. Never seen it before. Nice!

Still in love with this community after all these years, even though it is quieter these days. Which we could change that somehow.

Looking around the archive; With all due respect to Atom, we've come a long way since TWHL was first founded.

I love this community, and it seems like I've been here for a lot less time than I actually have. It's quiet here, but it's a peaceful quiet, not a lonely one.

i remember when srry blocked me from msn about 6 years ago. oh well, there was no pleasing that guy.

Srry can be pleased. I please him. In special ways. Every night.

...sexually.

Oh, I never got around to changing my avatar back after that.
I've used the same horribly photoshopped avatar for six years

Would be nice if TWHL can resist at least until we get 3D immersion devices so we can virtually meet and talk face-to-face. This is very probable by the end of this decade. (although I also imagine the bad part of this: a lot of the population using such devices could be transformed into consuming vegetables if the devices are not coupled with actual physical response mechanisms).
TWHL has been my first tab in Firefox since 2008.

That's a nice idea. I find myself being able to talk to a limited amount of members since I went to college, Steam ports are blocked.

How does that work? I've heard others suggest this too. Is this like accessing Steam through TeamViewer or TightVNC?
Striker StrikerI seriously doubt myself
Posted 7 years ago2012-11-10 20:41:06 UTC Post #310880
Something like that, I believe (though not sure) that you can setup a router at home (using dd-wrt) and connect to it so that that it becomes a proxy. I have one router for testing purposes but don't have a limited connection to test with :(

I remember when Archie was a brand new member.
"5 ways to die"
I also remember the "Proudly Liberal" avatar thing that happened once too
Vassy. Proudly British.

Andy. No avatar. Except he ruined his no-avatar streak with that scroll crap.
Not to be confused with Ant, formerly known as Anthony--Atom's right hand man (unless I've misunderstood this for the past 8 years).

Jaardsi's horror mod.

Bonus points to anyone here who was active when Atom (the original Atom) was still sitting on the throne. I wasn't.

Edit: Searching the archives to see if I can't retrieve my first avatar. Couldn't find it.
Couldn't find Urby's original avatar, either. But I remember it. A soup miner never forgets.

Edit: There were also the two TWHL "civil wars" on religious beliefs and Americans vs. the British and Australians.

I've got a truckload of these memories. Speaking of truckload, MASSIVE TRUCK OF FAIL.
Posted 7 years ago2012-11-11 05:04:45 UTC Post #310884
Hehe good memories.
Posted 7 years ago2012-11-11 05:31:31 UTC Post #310885
I share some of those memories. And I'd seen TWHL1 before, I just assumed it had been taken off the Wayback Machine. I didn't know it used a different URL.
Posted 7 years ago2012-11-11 05:58:58 UTC Post #310886
... or when Soup miner was called Worldcrafter (which i thought was a better name anyway)
Scotch was called Darkie
Archie was called Huntey.
Huntey was called The Hunter.
Urby was called Ub-somethingsomething i couldnt pronounce...
and wasnt someone called 'collapse' and then changed their name to something else too?

edit - oh and I used to think Muzzle flash was a female cos they had a female on his/her avatar! (then a few people did that too, and i was a bit phased)
Posted 7 years ago2012-11-11 06:23:40 UTC Post #310887
Incidentally, The Mighty Atom was Muzzleflash.
Urby was Urbanebula.
And thehalflifedude =NH= Yodalman Crollo Collapse Elliot Lu-something guy doesn't come here anymore, it seems.

Can't think of any others off the top of my head.

I'm pretty sure that was just you.
Posted 7 years ago2012-11-11 11:05:59 UTC Post #310889
I can't remember my first avatar... I've had so many.

Also, urbanebula is pronounced "urban nebula" for those who had trouble. Might go back to the full name some day.

That's probably going to happen when you'll have a boy and will introduce him to TWHL.

Heh. wow i thought i was old but i guess not. I've never seen that black version of twhl before. We had some good times around here.

Since its kinda relevant, we should have another TWHL CAKE DECORATING CONTEST!

Could someone post a screenshot of the black twhl? I've only been a member since 2003, and I can't view any of the screenshots before 2005 on Lajron's link. Not sure why I never saw the black version but I sure would like to.

Yeah, I also like the Skype idea.

Haha, wasn't expecting the idea to be so popular. That said, I'm still all for it.

It'd be like the IRC (does anyone still use that?), but actually... y'know, people. We're probably all close-knit enough for it to be good.

I used IRC once I think. I haven't in a few years because I never got around to finding an IRC client that works with Chrome.
Posted 7 years ago2012-11-12 11:59:35 UTC Post #310919
Ok then. Whoever wants to jump in the skypewagon, please add your skype username on your profile( at least until we add each other). Please confirm here.

[EDIT] So Suture has an Arduino on his avatar again. So does TJB. And you know what? I even forgot.

You know... Steam does have group voice chat, and we're already all in a Steam group.
Posted 7 years ago2012-11-13 07:15:26 UTC Post #310937
Skype > Steam
Because file sharing and easy chat management.

Steam > Skype
Only because ingame chat ability.

Personally I prefer Steam to Skype, because it seems to be slightly less in the way, but the direct file sharing is definitely a big plus.

Also, if anyone wants to add me on Skype my name is i_am_tuberculosis.

Probably my first ever attempt to come up with an 'internet name'. I'm not quite sure why I've kept it that way.

I've put mine on my profile as well. It's odd, there's a box to fill in your Steam username but it doesn't actually show up on your profile page.
