I got my connection in the new house now and right away i'm reminded that internet is a horrid addiction. I have the insurmountable anxiety to get updated on all that I missed. See, it's easy to live without the net--you just accept that you don't have it and go on with your life. But if you do have it, it's almost impossible to ignore it. I can't do a single activity without thinking "wouldn't it be much more fun if I was online now?".

Am I cool for admitting it or am I a cool guy who's not afraid to admit it?

when I first read it I thought she meant the second, but now I see there are different options, it must be the first.

Also, I have the same problem.

But I have to wait a minute posting this.

I remember when I checked the BBS after almost a week, there was seriously nothing interesting on it. That was kinda sad actually.

If I'm away from the BBS for more than 3 days it seriously takes me a while to get back into the swing of things.

I think im just cool all around.

And if you stay for too long from the net, you could seriously forget the old habits... unless they are rooted in too deep. Otherwise you have this urge to catch up. I'm not talking only about the BBS btw.

Yeah...I usually think it's more interesting when I'm here a lot...don't know why...

a cool guy who's not afraid to admit it; a lot of oldies here kinda act stupid when it comes to being addicted to the internet/this board.

Heh, I'm addicted to this board and to the Internet. I openly admit it.

I just want Tizz to openly admit she's addicted to shopping. ;)

I wanna be the first to write a thesis about internet junkies. About how it's not just "surfin' the net" anymore. It's a community. It's a way of life. The Bulletin boards have got fully to that stage yet however, chiefly because it doesnt provide the financial ressources to survive. But you guys should check out the "bloggers" and such.

yeah i agree. this whole thing is pretty interesting, but unfortunately very difficult to understand for people who dont use the net frequently/in this way. each community you find on the net (be it LJ, this BBS, myspace or whatever else) is different from the others, and people behave very differently as well.

Hardcore bloggers are strange people. I knew one once. Wrote in his blog every day for 3/4 years. One time he wasn't able to write in it for a week, and halfway through the week he actually burst into tears. By the last day all he could think about was getting back online. It was really scary.

Yeah its true, we all started from stratch and we evolved into communities we have now. It's like a high school class. Our offspring BBS community is here forever and even if the board closes in 5 years or whatever, I bet we'd still make reunions every number of years to mark once our time together. Cute, no?

And the difference in bloggers is its both a job and a past time for them. So they can litteraly spend every waking moment in front of their computers. Crazy.

Nina

but what amazes me is there are actually a lot of different "groups" on this (and probably any other) forum. just compare the general chat and offspring talk together...completely different people, completely different conversations, and i doubt it only has to do with the fact that this forum is more "general" when it comes to the topics than the other one. people just behave differently on the *same* forum. kind of strange.

Actually, I don't think this board is typical of all boards. I've seen other boards, and it's essentially one big group, and they're all friends. There's more controversy here than a lot of places, I think, and more groups. Even within the so-called "l337" there's different denominations.

Nina

although i dont like to admit it, i must say that this board is special indeed. i havent seen any other boards that were like this one. as i said we do have many different groups, but its still so different from everything else...we're actually "meaner" too, if that makes sense. so much like in real life.
wow, i got carried away.

I like to think myself as the difference maker.

But really, the community is about the core people, and our core people are pretty hardcore, hence we shape the entire community like us too.

That's a very good point. A BBS is only as mean/nice as it's core members.

There are probably about 30ish people on this BBS that totally rock and that I would most likely be friends with if I knew them. Which is saying a lot since there are not a whole lot of people that I really want to be friends with.

how do you define hardcore? or were you only completely referring to the "mean" part of mine?

HornyPope

It's a game of words. Core... hardcore. Get it?

Nina never (k)nows no notion of noun-play.

Isn't "hardcore" a verb?

Hey, I'm kinda like that too, except for with beer.

Well a verb-play wouldn't be exactly fitting now, would it be?

Dave, don't dare to dimpick dumb definitions of decrees!

Alcohol and other recreational substances obviously trump the time online but I can only do it so often before I feel annoyed of that too.

I had to come up with a slogan for a commercial for my study (stupid, cuz I study to be a translator), it had to had wordplay and stuff in it too...and it had to be for a watering can with a built in compartment for fertilizer, when I saw the assignment I thought I could NEVER come up with anything, cuz doing that sort of stuff in a foreign language is a bitch, and a watering can with a built in compartment for fertizer??????

Anyway, I came up with something:

Don't deflower, fertilise!!!

In those five years there were actually short periods of time when I managed to get away from here. Especially January 2004 till it re-opened again. I had too much of a life going on back then, constantly going out and hanging with people.

But all in all, I can't seem to get away from here. Back in April when I moved and had no connection for just a week, it felt weird. It's the only forum I've really grown to 'like' in a way meaning I post on it and have dozens of people here who I think are cool. And I get freaked out when I can't be on MSN for a day or two. So I'm not as much addicted to the net as to talking to some of the people I've talked to for literally years and years.
