Hmmm... Interesting...<BR>So, people, we've just taken a sledgehammer to the old HAPPY record. 1000 posts would be sweet, but that would require another 3.6 pages (at current post/page ratio) That puts us up to the 40th page. Has any forum thread lasted that long?<p>[ 10 November 2004: Message edited by: Phoenix ]

it is kinda of intersting how the happy threads have become a server stress test. Tho i do remember there was a fairly nasty smiley war in the first happy that made Forcey enforce a 8 pic per post limit ... with banning ;)

And don't undermine your thesis with your evidence...<P>I remember the Truce of the Happy... that was I think the peak of the HAPPY, but to be fair, it was the first one I joined in. <P>Nostalgia ain't what it used to be...

Hm. Nostalgia...<P>I think the only things I really remember with nostalgia are a group fanfic writing club I'm in, and TalkCity.<P>TalkCity has gone down the drain, through the sewer, and is now floating in the ocean, trying not to sink. Anyone else remember when they had the official StarWars.com chatrooms? :) Back when Episode I was released.<P><BR>Something I <B>wish</B> I remember, though, is the golden age of sf... It's sad though. Arthur C. Clarke, in... The Sands of Mars, I think it is, the main character comments on how sf doesn't last because it's writing about the future... I wonder how long people will read the old stuff...<p>[ 11 November 2004: Message edited by: General Edor Crespin ]
