No, really not a joke ([...] the actual board was first installed on April 1, 2001.) - I think (although I had to laugh). ;)

Since we don't do jack anymore, I thought why not mention the anniversary here (nonetheless). Posted Image

Congrats to whoever, who manages not to forget to renew the domain name every couple of years. :D Your astonishing commitment is what makes this posting possible in the first place. Posted Image

On that note, I'll go out with a happy pic that's in no way connected to this board's past. :P

Eleven days later I happen to notice this post. Here's some sound for the celebration:

Oh, and it it looks like your picture isn't working. That site must prevent image linking.

Weird, that pic works for me. But it was just a rather lame joke anyway. :)

And a genius sound you posted there. Should be default background "noise" throughout the forums. :D Would probably draw more people, because it's relaxing. :D

It went a ways after that IIRC...I'm thinking it was about the same time folks lost interest in Vista.

Hiya all! Happy birthday ieX!

It's pretty sad to see this board dead in the water though :(

However, it has definitely been one hell of a time in the good old days, and it's great to see so many old friends still stopping by once in a while... so I will definitely continue to renew the ieX domain :wink:

So long,
Nanzy
