I had a procedure where I shaved down my hips so I could look more like a pencil.

I'm a wee lad. It says 5'7" on my driver's license.

You and Uzique are both little men. I bet Jay could beat you both up at the same time.

i run 4 times a week. i eat well. my vices, such as they are, normally involve things that burn weight rather than put it on. i'm about average height for the UK, 5'10.

i have a slim silhouette. no regrets. a pair of jeans in 30" waist look a lot better on someone than the tarpaulin that the park service have to get out of warehousing to clothe jay.

i'm happy in my body!!!! not obsessed with trannies and ill-health like you are.

AIM was more of the yank thing. ICQ was more general. MSN and yahoo messenger pretty much stole their thunder.

Did you ever use AOL Instant Messenger? MSN Messenger? MSN Gaming Zone?

unsurprisingly, AOL weren't really big here. the biggest by far was MSN.

We had a couple of AOL dial up discs kicking about the homstead growing up, but I don't think we used them long term.

AOL were more popular as discs dangling from people's doorways or as garden d├ęcor. the freebie trial discs were everywhere. i don't think they ever 'penetrated' the market, as it were. we had lots of local-national ISPs like freeserve or whatever that were doing it. orange? remember orange? before EE? christ.

i got online in 2000, actually played my first serious FPS game on dial-up. i had to lie to everyone in the games about my 'dodgy' latency and say i was on DSL through a 'switchboard', which gave high pings. i didn't even know what DSL or a switchboard were. suffice to say, they didn't know i was about 12/13, either. lmao. i was on dial-up for way too long because the local exchange didn't get upgraded. i can remember the day it finally came to town and i had something like 512kbps of bandwidth to frag with.

the early internet WAS wild.

speaking of, current fashion is basically early 2000s all over again. norm core, etc. and the Gen-Z'ers went though a major phase of dressing like spice girls or whatever monstrosities existed in the late 90s. kangol bucket hats. platform shoes/trainers. giant ear-rings. bum bags/fanny packs.

I think probably 90% of Gen-Z fashion sense could be traced back to Billie Eilish

Replying late, I mainly went from ICQ to MSN, and from AIM to Yahoo Messenger. Now, some of my old friends keep in touch with each other through the Steam "messenger" even if they don't really play games much anymore.

Was a bummer for a lot of people when MSN Gaming Zone went down (rough ordeal all around). Wake up call in terms of the impermanence of some game models.

If you want to relive a bit of the old toxic internet experience, go join a game clan's Teamspeak/Discord. Listening to 50 year old men get bawled out by 13 year old strategists is an unusual experience that doesn't really come up anywhere else (apart from Ender's Game, maybe).

i still feel firmly of the xfire/ventrilo/teamspeak generation, to be honest. msn messenger for socializing.

didn't use any other IMs. early steam was a competent replacement of xfire, but still felt like some 'community' was lost.

never really got into first-wave social media (myspace, bebo, whatever).

facebook had its uses during university and has been a wasteland ever since.

haven't really ever gotten into discord.
