But... :)

I remember when ... I used to look at the tracker at this game advertised as 'the semi-holy Church of Lux" and try to pluck up the courage to enter

I remember when ... you couldn't guest out of games and had to plan your entrance into rooms more carefully :oops:

I remember when ... I played games in Shopi's room

Oh yeah, BR was there too

I remember when tfpunx seemed like the only one who played MOTW

I remember when I first saw the name "Drifter" enter a game room (I think my thought at the time was 'newb' XD ... yea, I was younger back then)

I remember when new faces (see Drifter scenario above) were friends, foes, or newbs... not aliases or "dual ip'ers"

I remember when there was such a person as General K

I remember when pcristov and I played together more

I remember when someone (when I first started) thought that I was WaR_LoRd because of how fast I was (and on a trackpad too!)

I remember when I first broke 1000 raw (and back when that was actually not super easy to do)

I remember when I used the ":D" face obsessively

I remember when upeng broke 5000 games total (which was the highest at the time)

I remember Black Pope
