  • Loved that place! If only I had a time machine :(
  • sounds like a fucking dictatorship!
  • Towards the bottom there was a misspelling. This must be corrected! "Do not do anythign illegal"
  • from what i remember we only added the last two paragraphs so we could deny responsibility in the event that blues posted the good stuff ;) The other was all vbulletin standard agreement stuff. And i was probably asked to check over it and probably didn't and said it was all good :D
  • I still have your signed declaration that all was good.
  • God, I need to read the small print more often!

    :D

    your more dangerous than Facebook

    i just noticed the page generation time! fastest ever!
  • only 5 queries!

    wait, wtf are there 5 queries for that page? haha :D
  • from what i remember we only added the last two paragraphs so we could deny responsibility in the event that blues posted the good stuff


    What good stuff? The best I ever did was modify a copy of Office that would update to full that I shrunk down to 99 megs.

    We tracked the d/l's from a webpage and it turned out I cost Microsoft $1.25 million. Hey..Bill Gates could afford it... :D

    :o
  • I check in every now and again.
  • woah.

    hi jesse! i saw you were in blighty again recently, too :)
  • Cant believe it was 16 years ago. really it was nearly 20 years total. I met Base and Bad back in the BBS days when i started design school and needed to get the apps. lol

    Feels like yesterday and a lifetime ago, all at the same time. lol
  • yeah. i found them looking for the same and got feedback on my resumé. stayed for the shennanigans. :)
  • I think the fact BB wasn't just a mac tech community; It was for designers. That means a high level of crazy.

    I was one of the first who registered for BB. Watching it grow. It's crazy how big it got. Looking back now, there was a few other boards trying to fill the void. Other sites with more links. But as a community did what napster couldnt do. We had a life after the links. A lot of it was based around the colourful community that formed the core. Now we turn on twitter and theres crazy all over the place. Back then, BB was one of the places you didnt know what you were going to get.

    Axl and Slash made up and theres a GnR reunion. Who knows.. maybe we'll have a second life for BB. Ive talked to socko about ideas for growing the community years ago. its just crazy it doesnt even have a wiki page. it was the largest mac underground community on the web.
  • I can't quite remember when I joined base, I was probably one of the newer older ones...? Think I was onboard early 2000s or could it have been the end of the 90s? When was base started?

    I know I was seeing a rather lovely illustrator around that time, had a PM8100, followed in quick succession by a second hand PM 8600 then G4 Cube!

    Okay, that's sad, stop talking about your old computers David! Now I'm talking to myself! :)

    ...I came for banter and inspiration, not dodgy software... ;)

    I got my fill of all that through the college I was teaching at part-time! :D
  • ~sigh
  • I started on a Quadra 800 running OS 7.1 68k. Couldn't afford a new fangled PPC Mac.. :(
  • i remember when the g5 leaks came out and everybody thought the 1ghz frontside bus made it a fake. lmao.

    My indigo imac that i got 20 years ago still works. funny... my phone is now like 10x more powerful then it now. time flies.

    I was, including a whirlwind long weekend with Lee AKA Sono.
  • Are you still doing your music @jesse?
  • I haven't recorded anything in a long while. I have been playing and writing, and building a studio in the backyard. So I dunno, maybe?

    Life gets in the way sometimes, doesn't it. Home studio, excellent, hope that helps with the inspiration.

    My iTunes shuffling throws a song from A Collective Sigh into the mix from time-to-time... :)
  • It has been a pleasure knowing and meeting such great people (i'm talking about you lot).

    Some of my IRL friends don't even know half of what I used to get up to... but you lot know it all :)))
