omg, I just saw posts of mine from 1/19/98 and 1/24/98

scary!!

what’s weird is that i was here in late ’97 and ’98 when i was 18 and planning my first eurotrip! then i took a hiatus and when i came back in early 2003, the system had changed and deleted my user name…but i still got it back!

thanks for that Don. I definitely remember eurotrip back then….

I didn’t join Eurotrip until 2000 but things certainly have changed, remember those ‘Student’s’ that went on a fling through various countries and reported back to Eurotrip, are any on them still on this site??

I joined in Jan 20 1999, about a year before Andrew sold the place on. I’m the reason there’s a Eurotrip Pub, it was my request to create the pub (really it was an excuse to start the "Eurotrip Pub Brawl", the most legendary thread on E/T which was shut down for legal reasons).

I’ll be leaving at 8000 posts, 200 to go!

none of you will leave at this point, bunch of lifers we are.

i remember first discovering this message board back in high school during class…this is by far the online ‘community’ that i’ve belong to the longest. is that kinda cool, or more pathetic than anything else?

still too short for your liking?

I’m not sure if I’m going to completely quit, but I’m trying to make an effort to ween myself off a bit. The forums and blogosphere take way too much attention away from other tasks I have to do to the point that I think it’s bad, but shit, it’s an addiction at this point. But if I do exit, I’ll leave my email in case anyone wants to drop a line and say wuzzup.

Hm.
Eurotrip says the board I was looking for is "unvailable because of routine maintenance." I was looking for fall of ’99, that’s when I began lurking, but I joined later, in January of 2000.

What I’d really like to reread is something somebody here was already mentioned, and at least once before dug up: the archive of what led to the founding of the Pub.
It was very amusing, Jboy.

I don’t need to read the Pub Brawl again, I was here for that one and once was enough.

It’s crazy to even have something like archive.org, I can’t imagine how much hard disk space they must be using to archive the internet like that. People that ever plan on running for public office better be very careful what they say online, because their opponent will certainly use their words against them, even if it’s decades later. Maybe this is all part of the disappearance of privacy.

haha, well I don’t know what the actual thread said because archive.org only lets you see the thread titles. I was just scolling through the discussion board from early 1998 and saw that. I’m sure it was some naive and over-zealous invitation for fun travel buddies. Naivete + early days of commercial internet = pathetic + funny

hmm. I did, however, find one of the first threads I created in the pub when I found my way back here in early 2003. My first run-in w/jboy. Friendly!

Well folks, I requested the creation of the pub (in fact my acerbic postings prob were why Andrew opened it, scaring too many folk away in fav places) gave you the pub brawl which in turn generated chat on this site!

You’ve got a lot to thank me for!

Lol..yeah, that thread was fun. puts on a fake frown Don’t know why, but I kinda expected it to be gone when I logged on this morning. Could it be the fact that there was alcohol involved?

We’ll do it again sometime. It’s sort of a substitute for a chat, actually…wait, here’s what we should do, the next time this kinda thing happens, like when dozen or so people are on at the same time, we should designate a chatroom and go do it there. Since this site doesn’t have a chatroom(or it’s broken??), we should pick a chatroom at some chatsite and go chat there. Whatdya guys say?

As for the dissension, I just noticed that there isn’t the hatred or levels of disagreement at the other place.

Heh, yeah later I realized that must have been what you meant. Sorry for the misunderstanding.
We do have our occasional upsets over at TOS but no legal authorities have ever had to be called.

… said it back then and I’ll say it now, if people were having sex in my general vicinity on a train, I’d smack their fucking heads in and throw their nudie dead bodies onto the tracks.

That thread was shite Kirsty, and all the immature assholes thought it was great, why ???

Is there somthing exciting about having sex on a train ?? I hate fucking trains, just sitting on them is bad enough.

Met the Fabienne once with the Bobiam at NYFest 2000. She was a sweet and sincere gal. Perhaps her bitchiness was just an online persona. She was even nice enough to send the Herr the French soccer jersey.

Quit trying to claim credit where NO FUCK’N CREDIT is due, jboy!!!!! He did NOT fuck’n request the creation of the pub and all y’all are fools to believe the jboy!!!!! The Herr has been around just as long if not longer the jboy so he can say the jboy just blowing smoke up all yall’s asses trying to claim credit for the pub!!!!

Andrew created the pub because numerous posts in "Favorite Places" had nothing to do with ‘Favorite Places’ at all. Peeps were posting threads about "What do you look like?", "What’s your favorite beer?", etc.

It was during the newly created forum, "The Pub" that jboy started a thread called ‘Pub Brawl’, which he can be credited for, HOWEVER, it was the Herr, or Herr Schwanse back then, that first started posts in that thread writing a tale about an encounter with the infamous Boris at the pub and beating him with a pool stick that got all the other posters going and continuing on with the story. That was when the thread got pulled by Andrew. The Herr actually had a copy of &quotub Brawl" but was wiped out when his computer crashed.

The Herr would not be writing this scroller if it was not true.

Wow..talk about a blast from the past! I found one of my posts from May 3rd, 1997, as well as my review of the 3 Ducks Hostel in Paris (under the April 09, 1997 link and in the hostel review section). No nicknames back then, just yer real name (with mine in it’s full glory no less). A much simpler time back then.
