So that's a vente mocha-chino with extra foam, two shots of expresso, and skim milk?

All this FX Force love... Where's the love for the SUPERIOR website Electric Freedom? Eh?



See, I come back from years of walking the earth like Kwai Chang Cain (ask your grandparents) and this sort of nonsense and disrespect is what I come back to?  Unacceptable, Meejub!  (Although EF was almost as cool as FXForce!)



Almost...but not quite.

Those who played City of Heroes with me may remember my obsession with ICED VENTI CHAI.  It is still an issue.   ;)

IIRC, your name came up once.....we all laughed and laughed, and then moved on.    :P

I know you were kidding, Bujin.

You just accidently hit on an idea that has always nagged at the back of my mind. I've always wondered why I ended up bouncing from host to host - all but two times having to go with hat in hand to ask to join. Just always wondered in some places if...

Eh, ignore the DJ. DJ is just sober and that's just an unnatural state for him...

I hosted for just about anyone - I dunno why we never, like, hooked up...an'...shucks.  I also don't remember you much during the 'Site Wars' era - perhaps you never really had an avatar? I remember your name from very earliest skinning sites but cloudy onwards.  :huh:

I was a member of FFC (from start to finish), Kraven's site (which didn't last long for me) and EF during the Site Wars time but wasn't included in it because I came to EF after it started. Plus I wasn't one of the well known EF members during Site Wars nor the most active on FR at the time (I didn't post about what I had skinned on FR back then, just sent it off to be uploaded by Volt).

I was part of Age of Hellscorp/Volt though.

And FXForce did have a few of the alt avatars I did for some of the members (I know I did Xorn...and someone else...)

After EF shutdown, I bounced around a lot. FFUnderground, NPI, FFAsylum/Unfluffybunny, FRP, Yahoo groups, and (now) Empi all have hosted my stuff. Very understandable with the cloudiness. That and from the very start I was more of the obscure/lesser known/"cult" skinners, always in other folks' shadows: Gryphon, Firestorm, and Copper Age in the beginning; C6 (after I joined EF till his retirement); AA, UE, Podmark, Tomato, Carr, DG, CB,Unko, Deanjo, and the rest of the skinning crew after C6's retirement. I've just kept motoring on, though. Why? I got no idea...but that's not important. What is important is I NEED BOOZE!!

Edit: Come to think of it, I might be the last skinner still skinning from the beginning of FF skinning and FFC...back when everything was new and untried...when you skinned the jacket on to a male_basic mesh becausu there was no nifskope or mesh with a jacket...back before even particale arrays and hex editting were discovered. You know, that's extremely saddening and makes me feel old as all get out...

Someone, please get me a bottle of vodka...

Cool history lesson!  That's like pre-FR even, just the original Crave message boards.

I've been having fun digging through FXForce site backups.  :thumbup:

I remember the Hub...all of those banners takes me back...don't forget Dragon Force, the Skindex, and HAMSTER!

And yeah...I guess I am pre-FR...never really thought about that...I do remember posting a few things on Crave's boards but never stopped to realize that was pre-FR. Now I feel really ancient......

I miss Firestorm....I remember when him and Gyrus first put together Heroes for Hire.....I actually was going to join them there before Gyrus disappeared....ah...the old days....

As for avatars, I did mine when I joined Kraven's site....before then, I didn't have one.....and he's evolved off and on over the years....

OH MY!! One of the older Site Wars pics!!!  Back then Volt, Lude, MJB, Spud, C6, and GG were the big names for EF.....ahh...brings back so many memories.....

That was an alt avatar Syn/Unfluffybunny did when he asked me to join FFAsylum/Unfluffybunny....I think my original avatar was hosted at EF long ago....

Got a good bit of your stuff from Unfluffy Bunny's site, as well as that.

I haven't given up on one with "real" bones yet... I am kind of bewildered... maybe with Bamphallas' skeleton...

 I can't get anything from Electric Freedom.

I doubt you'll find anything saveable from Kraven's site and only a handful from FFUnderground. I know getting stuff off FFC is a questionable and I don't have any of those works on my comp. It's just been so many years ago since those sites existed, it makes Waybacking them and finding something rough. The sites after FFUnderground, you have a better chance...

I don't know, Bearded. Syn put this avatar version together and did the skoping on it. I've no idea where he grabbed the pieces from.

No, no, no, you're thinking of the Firestorm tires.  Atomically unstable and all that.

No, you're thinking about the Fantasti-tires made by Reed Enterprises, PG, those were atomically unstable. COMPLETELY DIFFERENT from what I'm talking about...
