Boyhood chum Dave "Blue Pages" Diehl sent me an invite, probably in 1996,
with the line, "a great time waster if ever there was one," and I was
intrigued. He would occasionally forward a few gems. But we were on
dial-up and paid by the minute. I think I joined in early 1998 once I
learned to have Netscape download my mail to my computer so I could craft
queries or replies offline, then connect and hit send. Ah, the good ol'
A few years later I moved and lost all connectivity for about two months and
when I got back on the Thai Slave Girls episode had already been reduced to
punch-line status. I'm still not sure if I missed anything or not.
I've always been long on questions and short on answers, but it's been fun.
Among the best things I remember was the dissection of History Detectives
episode with the aluminum Amos n Andy disc, and all the discussion of A&A
and racism - and Elizabeth's masterful dismantling of all of that. Worth
every cent I spent on internet that month.
And we've lost a number of great guys. Jack Palmer and I visited a few
times when he drove through west Tennessee. When I logged on a few minutes
ago I saw an Unsubscribe message from Bud Black saying Bud passed away on
March 9. I'll miss Bud, too. The ol' eccentric groove will grab every one
