Crazy that that stuff still exists in readable form. Might have to browse through those later for nostalgia's sake.
Yeah I guess 2002-2004 I was still just reading the OS site and posting on that board. I am pretty sure that I started posting on Babble just weeks after Patrick started so if there's an OS board thread where he mentions that he's actually started posting on Babble, that'd be an easy way to determine when I showed up.
I obviously remember the "Maryanne" phase but I'm pretty sure that was after I'd already been posting as Pugeye. Not 100% on that though. I don't know if I really had a "posting spam images" phase but I was always drunk back then so I could be forgetting how often I did that. Only remember posting random images a few times, one of which was a photo of a raccoon w/ some guy's dick in its mouth, which somebody tried to have me banned for and IIRC it was Olson (who was a mod at the time) who defended me, saying that ratting me out to the board host was some weak ass shit (and he was right but it still surprised me- he and I weren't exactly best buds).
