My son was born the year I first was introduced to the forums.

He is a college freshman this year.

You named your daughter Jade? Did you think she was going to be a stripper?

Congrats, Grape! Good to see you again!

I started Maxim forums March 10, 2000. (Yes, I have a good memory for the important shit).

I have been talking to you fine men and women for 18 years! What the fuck is up with that and why!?

I wasn't even married in 2000 or even seeing anyone. I got married in 2004.

Now I have a 9 year old baseball star and an Asperger's - ridden 13 year old.

When did Maxim turn into Jeff’s? I know I started lurking when I was working on my Masters, around 2003 for the pics, which we haven’t had in forever, and I only remember “Jeff’s Forums.”

Oooey Gooey --

Maxim was the place to be in the year 2000 for about 8 months, then we all got too nuts in there and they shut the place down. (I'll be honest. I never laughed so hard in my life as when I was reading the posts in the Maxim Forums. That was the funniest shit ever.).

When they shut it down, someone had the fore site to launch the Terrian Forums. That lasted a year or so, until some tards of our group decided to raid another forum site that happened to be operated by a bunch of hackers, who summarily took down the Terrian forum site.

Then, somehow a guy named Jeff, a friend of Bruhaha, started Jeffs forums and we landed there (Never knowing who the fuck Jeff really was) until Ogre did us all a favor and made a new and improved website, which we use today.

That is my recollection. Am I missing any details?

PS: My dad used to tell me this little poem joke as a kid:

OoeyGooey was a worm/
A friendly worm was he/
He crawled upon the railroad tracks/
A train he did not see!/
Ooooooey Gooooooey!

He would also say:

Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear/
Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair/
Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn't very fuzzy, was he?

We'd laugh and laugh as kids every time he said that shit.

My dad is 93 now. Still alive but he has dementia. He can't remember anything from minute to minute.

Terrian was taken down for a software license violation, not because it was hacked.

One of the guys who worked for maxim started Terrian after Maxim shut down the forums for what was  some type of legal issue, fairly sure they got served or were contacted by lawyers/LE. After everyone migrated to Terrian, a group of Terrian trolls decided to raid ars technica (dumbest idea ever) and mess with their board.   Ars fought back and found out that the Terrian owners were using unlicensed software and threatened to report them for that to whoever owned the software.  The pussies who owned Terrian backed down and pulled the plug. Those left moved to ezboard.  I was banging dillver's mom throughout it all.
I mongered Dillver's mom.

That so called attack on the nerd forums was kinda funny. A bunch of pissed off computer nerds started spamming our board. It was fun
