Metachat memory lane. [More:]

Remember when the [img] tag was banned?

What else do you remember?
Remember the MeCha cartoon bunny zombie? Sometimes I miss the MeCha cartoon bunny zombie. Is it archived somewhere, or do I have to do that (in all its holiday incarnations) for posterity?

Remember the MetaTalk thread that planted the MeCha seed in taz's feverish cranial cavity? And the MetaChat is Ready! thread?

Remember when a whole bunch of us got together in Vegas and we all participated in something or other that included Elvis?

I remember Dingle.

Heh. I just read that original meta thread again for the first time since... then. God, I sound petulant. But MeFi was down almost all the time for Europeans at that point; Matt had to manually kickstart it on a regular basis back then, I think, and of course he could only do that while awake.

Also, knifebutt. Aaaah, memories!

Oh, and watching baseball whilst on IRC...

Yeah, on LipstickThespian's arm!

Hee hee, the glory!

I dunno, but is anybody living in it yet?

The Wiki says this was the first pink bunny post.

...the first MeCha MixUp?

...when mudpuppie announced in IRC that she was marrying Quonsar?

I remember you guys being there when I needed a shoulder to cry on/whine to.

I missed the [img] ban, but like kellydamnit...i remember when you guys were there for me too(but i'm too lazy to look up links)...

I remember the first mechamixup vividly...i learned alot about each of you that participated...and therefore fell in love with matildaben(although i'm not sure i ever told her...)

i don't remember much but i remember you...

Metachat's baby picture (wow, rabbit post on Day 1).

Here's MeCha at New Year's 2005! What a cutiepie, her first New Year's Eve.

Here's MeCha on the eve of the first birthday. You can see the resemblance!

I remember it all.

Unfortunately ;-)

Reading through the threads kellydamnit linked makes me realise just how cool a dude ColdChef is, too. I always knew that, but he just moved up a couple of notches.

I remember the thread(s?) about MeCha crushes where nobody had a crush on me (unless I misremember, of course). I remember the first valentine thread, which I missed until I got an e-mail from taz telling me to get my arse over here for the fun.

Actually, most of it is a two-year blur. Two years? I still can't quite come to terms with that.

Miko's 2nd link opens IRC. Weird.

I remember when I used to actually hate all of you and I wasn't plagued with the mildest of lukewarm indifferences.

*snif* the bunnyhead... *sniff* me loved bunnyhead very much... *snif*

My son (tree yearths owld) had a crush on bunnyhead too. But I had to explain to him that taz, the sweet girl he met in Thessaloniki took it away...

The What Not to Post to AskMe threads are my fondest MeCha memories.

...and when quonsar was here regularly...

he's here regularly, he's just shy and reserved these days.

...when mudpuppie announced in IRC that she was marrying Quonsar?

yes, shy and reserved as a result of the crushing rejection he underwent at the hands of that brazen hussy...
