so what's the cellar's story?

i've being in a few communities, most of them related to a product or activity or a common ground and they usually die off or i loose interest...

this place seems to be built at the day where the only thing people needed in common in online communities was that they are using the internet. it feels a bit like ancient ruins, or at the very least the 90's...

so gather elders, what is the story of this place? what's this community's history?

http://cellar.org/faq.php?faq=what_i...cellar_history

This tells most of its early history. Though, it only goes up to the early 00's.


As an online community of whatever current form, it is into its 22nd year.

I'm sure the great and powerful Undertoad will be along shortly.

Since 2005 the Cellar has mostly functioned as a vehicle to bring my intelligence and wit to an international community.

You may like to read the history which brings it to this point, but it is by no means necessary to your current enjoyment of the site.

See? UT is so ultra powerful that he sent a USENET message through the old under sea cable system to an ultra ultra top secret military computer in the basement of the a University in London, setting of a extrasensory message to Dana telling her to post the thread already describing an excellent history of the Cellar.

Yeah I don't have much to say other than what I wrote in the History. There it all is.

Yep. the Cellar has a pretty long history.


It's probably one of the longest continuing online communities in the world at this point. Word is that Gerry Anderson was planning a 'Cellar' series, but couldn't find the right wood for an Undertoad puppet.

Knotty pine would have been my choice.

wow... talk about pioneering. i am genuinely impressed.

i honestly just remember when i was... i think maybe 7, and saw a friend of my father's use usenet. my english wasn't good enough at the time, and during that age nobody has yet figured out how to work hebrew (left to right) into the web... a few years later i joined a few older friends and we stole a bunch of hardware from highschool and where among the first in my town to do lan parties, but that's about as far into online pioneering as i go.

my point being is, for me and the other geeky members of my generation that got sucked into early networks and then onto the internet, you guys are freaking giants.

not sure what to say... thank you and good job.

What about a link to the naked cellar? everyone is clothed in my cellar.
(Unless it is putting the lotion on its skin)
