I remember when... Voni would go berserk for hours on noobs for breaking the code (until marriage ruined his Lux life).

I remember when... Nef and Middle Earth were groundbreaking add ons (and cooler than igloos).

I remember when... An updated version of Lux came out every other week (seemed like that lasted until v. 4 or so).

I remember when... mbauer would pine at my door for fishnets.
I remember when... you set at least an hour aside for a game.
I remember when... "Baden" was still the safe word.
I remember when... Xanadu was merely a recruit and still only allowed to watch PK, UC and I.
I remember when... I used to read all the threads instead of just marking them as read.

I beat bennok to the punch with regards to weekly first place ... (orlando won the week before ?!?!) ... neck and neck while he was around ... 5 vs. 5 before he left for Japan, the week kate nearly stole the crown ... I actually played a late night going away game with bennok, risking first place, not that anyone would remember ...

Head to head though, bennok kicked my arse ... would be interesting to duel through a second round of games ... I feel like I've learned a bit about Lux since then ...

Shameless to be telling my own stories ...

∞ paranoiarodeo twitches ∞

I remember finding this thread about Smedz after he first began harassing me in the forums ...

I remember when there were no maps except the random map generator.

I remember when there was no online play.

I remember when there was no nef or killbot.


All in all, I'd say things have gotten better :D

Why is that so easy for me to remember? Oh, yeah - that was last week for me.

I remember when jell-o was my main opponent.

I remember when I got scolded for trying to take Europe (someone else was ALREADY there).

I remember when I played my first game, with universalcat, Tueur2, USO, Gamin, and a bot. They were kind enough to take out the bot first, but then they beat me senseless, took my wallet, tossed me into a dumpster, etc. (#8454).

I remember when Godspell was a map that someone actually played.

I remember Logan's cigars.

And I remember Natya as being the funniest player I'd ever played.

I remember when... Lux had only text based output.
I remember when... Lux was first publicly released (on versiontracker).
I remember when... the mod squad formed.
I remember when... mbauer submitted his first map (deLUX World).
I remember when... the map file format switched to be XML.
I remember when... the seeding system was announced out of the blue at Luxtoberfest 1.
I remember when... Lux was nothing but pseudo code written on pads of paper while bored.
I remember when... the name of Lux was going to change.
