Someone who can live on forums alone? That makes you a perfect candidate for a NASA job. A few lonely years to and from Mars - human contact without strings. No wife. No shrink. Only Cellar contacts. Sound like the simple life you desire?

Does anyone think there's no adversity here. Where's the quiz?

He buys a load of hardware with some money that he'd made by doing consulting work. We set the system up in Scott's cellar. He has gotten an illicit copy of SCO Xenix from a friend who works in SCO tech support, and somehow we load the machine and get it running.
You know, UT, maybe with SCO running around suing everyone, you might want to leave out that little piece of Cellar history.

I would love to know at what point I joined the Cellar. I made it to one GTG at RTM, and to the BBQ at UT's house. I remember the Cellar move and the issues with the call forwarding. Not counting a sporadic period during the Telnet years, I guess that means I've been here on and off for 10 years out of the past 16.

I've tried to go completely forumless, but I am addicted to the human contact without strings. At work, I find I have to posture and look productive and all that. Here, I don't care if anyone thinks I'm an asshole, I can just be myself.

I've never considered going cold turkey. I don't want to think about painful things on a Saturday morn.

Another site that shut down and a bunch of the exiles swarmed into the Cellar. A couple of them didn't fit well and moved on.

That's right, for a while it was like Casablanca, but without the Nazis.


You must remember this, a kiss is just a kiss....

Not sure if I am the correct fit, but times takes time.
