Thanks for being here, everybody. Those who've hung on.

Thanks for posting. Even when nobody comments.

Combined with Sensible Erection, how many years would it be?

SE, as a blog, goes back as far as 2000. But I don't think it was till 2001 when Matt rolled his own codebase and we ended up with the monstrosity this is based on.

Are the rumors true? Is Trump's new platform, "Truth Social", also built on the old SE monstrosity?
cb361 said @ 5:46pm GMT on 21st Feb
I’m not saying anything. But did anybody ever see saint marck and Donald Trump together at the same time? Do your own research!

21 years then. PHP is the new COBOL.

Old Code Gets Younger Every Year

The threat of decaying technology looms while we waste time talking about mainframes.

Are you sure? I have a feeling it was a little earlier. I remember finding SE and where I was (it's like when Kennedy was shot) and I'm pretty sure it was around 98, maybe 99. Could be wrong. Maybe I'm a couple of years younger than I thought?

Anyhow - good work Steele!

Same. Pretty sure I started visiting in 98.
captainstubing said @ 10:22am GMT on 23rd Feb
Have we really spent a quarter of a century visiting the same boards without saying hello?

Hello zenviper.

We need more porn though.

Making your way in the world today
Takes everything you've got
Taking a break from all your worries
Sure would help a lot
Wouldn't you like to get away?

All those nights when you've got no lights
The check is in the mail
And your little angel
Hung the cat up by its tail
And your third fiancé didn't show

Sometimes you want to go
Where everybody knows your name
And they're always glad you came
You want to be where you can see
Our troubles are all the same
You want to be where everybody knows your name

Thanks for sticking around buddies. Let's roll this for another... 20 years? Or what is it?

Fuck, I'm old.

I am fine with dying an SEer, so, just keep going.

I'm honestly surprised this place still exists sometimes. But also delighted! I'm not a big contributor at all, but the amount of things I actually click through and read to completion is way higher here than most other places.

Thanks for running it, thanks for maintaining it, thanks for sticking around.

I'm just happy to be here.

I've been lurking since the beginning. I've gotten some of the most interesting links, reads, and music/shows that I would have never stumbled across from this place.

Thank you to all the contributors and members who make this happen!

I miss Madpride and Maryugo or whatever their name was. Made for interesting posts. Fibonacci was my fav cuz weird porn =)

Edit: I swear og SE goes back to 99. Could be wrong though.
captainstubing said @ 12:46pm GMT on 22nd Feb
Same re: 99. Do you remember Matt's pal Robyn?

I still think Asscheeks Akimbo might be my favourite name seen here.
pisswiss101 said @ 12:30am GMT on 23rd Feb
Robyn and Akimbo! Omg how time flies. Ah memories =)
captainstubing said @ 10:30am GMT on 23rd Feb
And Mr. Langosta. He was a nice chap. From memory (what's left of it) he had a nice line in cheerleader porn or similar.

Steele - I think all us old horse jacker-offerers need an SE nostalgia post once daily. Have a software pixie randomly post something from as far back as possible. We can thrill to posts about LOTR movies that might get made, or feel sad about another Bush running for U.S. President. It'll be good for the kids, too, to know where all this came from. Do it for the kids, Steele.

For the kids...

Hello? Hello! Hello? I'm still here, just very, very old.

Anyone else remember when S'Erection got hacked and there was that Danish or What-ever-ish music anime thing singing whenever you went to the web page. I can almost hear that song in my head... over... and over...
