mIRC

I spent too much time on IRC chat, mainly once I got into running a Game related website. It was mainly when Half-life was announced, and we were endlessly waiting for it to be released. At that time, I think I started in #half-life, which was run primarily by the quake2.com people. Like many things, young people aren't the best as being managers, and being young too, I fell for a lot of the personality conflicts inherent in such a time bomb.

Eventually I found myself banned for whatever reason, and at that point a closer friend had started #valve. There were a few conflicts, but it wasn't as bad. I also started #dopefish as a personal room. Eventually I realized what a toxic environment it all was, and left. This was all mainly between 1998 and 2000. I have a few channel stat files below to marvel at.
