If I recall I believe it was a standalone candy and didn’t come as a part in anything


Oh, I see. I guess I just didn't come across those as I don't even remember seeing them in stores.

Anyone remember these? I had a few of them. Most specifically remember the Magnemite and Golem, then a friend of mine having the Pikachu.

The Cheerios penny in 2000, can't believe that was 20 years ago…


Hey! I forgot all about that. I wonder if mine is still back at home, as I got one back then too. Thanks for the refresher with posting that. I have a hard time really adjusting that much time actually has went by. Before we even realize it, it'll be 25 and then 30.

For me, it was Tamagotchi. Even the bootleg ones were awesome. I remember buying them in one of those cheap street markets at the town during holydays. It was summer, I was with my grandparents and I remember them dying after like a week and me having to reset the game no matter how much I took care of my creature. When the summer ended and I was back at school I let my Tamagotchi with my mother until I was back at home. Maybe I should buy one for nostalgia.

Let's talk about mothers. I don't have a good relationship with mine. Here's a joke, in comic form, that my mother has told me she tells to other people, when talking about me. I am Son B.

maybe a bad recipe for a son, but a good recipe for a strong man


Satan himself out here with good advice for you OP. I hope your life has improved in the last year and a half


I think that's okay. I also didn't show much affection for my parents other than an occasional forced hug. I think that happened because I couldn't relate to them, and so I didn't want to open up my soul because I knew they wouldn't really be able understand. Sometimes my mother reproached me in lack of emotionality but ironically enough I've always considered myself to be much more emotional than her, just never really showed that. I used to think that it was just some teenage angst and that one day I'll once again be able to have warm relationships with my parents just like I did in childhood, but now I'm well past puberty and I still feel the same. But I don't regret it at all, honestly. We don't get to choose our parents, so trying to act towards them dishonestly in any way will always be vain.


The most interesting conversations, and the most intense fights, that I've ever had were with my mother. It's the affine combinations of mental disorders we share making our conversations sprawl and focus in chaotic harmony with each other. I manage to celebrate my disorders as helping me to see what most others wont, but she got the raw end of the deal in terms of severity and nonfunctionality. When she was weaning off her selfmedication, she grew more suspicious of me, eventually accusing me of things I didn't do, of manipulating her, which was really stressful, and I started to feel like she was manipulating me. In hindsight, it was probably the withdrawal and taking time adjusting to her new chemical balance, but we're effectively estranged now. She said she feared I'd kill her before she left the last time, so I can't even do anything about it.


I miss my mom every single day.

Did any of you browse 4chan when you were younger? Like, before 2007, when it was fun and civil, not the twisted abomination it is now.
Those were the good days. We were all alike, because even if you were a fat neckbeard weeaboo, everyone else was a also a fat neckbeard weeaboo, in their hearts. This picture sums it up nicely.

How do I make my own chan? I have some awesome ideas but have no clue how tf any of this coding stuff works. It's difficult to be a creative person and still keep up with programming


Well, depends on what you want.
First option would be taking an existing engine and modifying it to meet your needs (for ex. this website). This can be as easy as just installing a vichan/whatever-cool-kids-use-today and changing a logo, and it can be as hard as making a major rewrite if you want to implement some weird issues.
Second option would be making a chan from scratch. This is what I did.
This is obviously pretty involved, but it is fun in some sense. I've learned (well, not really) PHP this way… Learned that vulnerabilities might happen, etc. Eventually it will pay off I think.
In both cases it is a good idea to know basic sysadmin stuff, like dealing with Linux (you're not going to pay for expensive Windows server VPS, right?), how to deal with Apache/nginx and such. I mean, you can use a hosting, but you just have more control with a VPS
Also, programming is creative in a way.

Anyway, in the end of the day you will end up with another only-admin-visits chan, because people seem to like speed of posting. This is kinda sad.


how do i download dreamchan and change the board names?


very carefully


Well, you have to convince admin giving you sources. He probably won't :D

This thread is for music that makes you feel nostalgic. Post yt links to songs that make you feel nostalgic (even if you don't actually have memories with them) and maybe what the song reminds you of or makes you think of.

I'll start…
This song reminds me of my earlier childhood (as far back as I can remember - 7yrs) but especially of my old school. I went to a private christian school in the booneys. This song just makes me think of that time. It reminds me of when things were sort of structured..having to tuck our shirts in…all the girls wearing these dresses that went down to your ankles that would seem way out of fashion now. Getting pulled to the principal's office by my ear with my friend. Going around the merry-go-round. Going to the top of the slide and looking out at a massive field with super high grass that seemed to go on forever and a green and orange forest that seemed to hug the school itself.

I believe I had pretty much the same album as you, although I had a different version to most people, the one I had was called 'Moods II', but the track listing is almost exactly the same as ''Pure Moods'. My version had a different cover and started with 'Orinoco Flow', unforgettable because of the sudden way it would start. My favourite tracks were 'Sweet Lullaby', 'Return to Innocence' and 'Nirvana'.

I had this in 1997 after just moving to New Zealand with my family. I would stick my head out the window and just breathe in the smell of the air which would fill me with all sorts of feelings, one of them being this 'yearning' feeling as if there were all sorts of amazing things taking place elsewhere that I was missing out on or something. I would start crying sometimes listening to 'Return to Innocence', I tried re-creating that experience recently and it was amazing to be pulled back to that time.



I also have a separate memory associated with the music video for 'Sweet Lullaby'. I was in Australia before going to New Zealand, I'm not sure what year this was - sometime before 1997, and we had a TV channel called SBS which mostly aired 'world' movies and TV, and I happened to be awake one morning to catch their 'sign on' video, which was the music video for 'Sweet Lullaby', and it would end with this guy almost whispering in an odd voice "The world is an amazing place. SBS". After seeing that once I would try to wake up to be able to see it again, but the sign on was at like 5am or something and it seemed like sometimes they'd just go straight to programming rather than have the video. It was especially awesome for a young kid who had never been overseas to see this, and the song is wonderful on its own: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lIF5EEneWEU

As for Nick, the 'The Adventures of Pete & Pete' theme brings me back to this period in 1996 when my parents relented and got us satellite TV, and my younger brother and I just spent as much time as possible watching that. Brings back a carefree childhood feeling.



Reminds me of a time that i didn't exist and a country i have never been to.


MiniDisc recorded Music made on the Playstation



Can relate. It really is strange feeling, the country that doesn't exist for 30 years is still all around us.

So recenty I been having a blast for what was like to surf the internet 10 years ago when things were not so centralized.
There was always something new and different right after the next corner and every new place had new people.
I haven't felt that feeling of novelty when you stumbled upon a new resource, flash game, webcomic and so on in a long time, it was always different.

The internet is no longer the wild frontier it used to be and all the pioneers have disappeared.

Years ago common forums were very active and lots of people had personal pages
Today not even google can take you somewhere new.

There's a reason that imageboards are the way they are, and the virtue-signalling cancerous groupthink communities of reddit and facebook are the ways that they are. "Lurk more" is an idea as old as 4chan. Please consider it.


Take your own advice you pompous newfag. You have obviously not been on imageboards for long if you think identity is not extremely important.


>letting you be you
It's frankly the best type of internet. It's how it used to be in the beginning, when it was a technical extension of the BBS scene that existed in the 80s. The internet, as its name suggests, made it easy to connect all networks together; in fact it gobbled them up, never to be seen again. People organised themselves by interest, not by identity. Interest is a good way to create connection, while "identity" is often self-defeating.
Hi :)
Define "identity" and then we can talk. If your definition includes random characteristics, like place of birth, then it's limiting and I'm not interested.


You are talking as if I'm the master of the internet and I decide if and how identity is handled here.


They're both dead, does anyone have the new link?

I'm really nostalgic about older technology.

Let's talk phones, for example.
They were really high quality engineering masterpieces.
>High build quality, metal parts
>made not in China (in case of Nokia that was Finland)
>week battery life out of 900 mAh
>physical keys, so you don't swipe screen like idiot
>repairability. Nokia did supply schematics, with all test point signals and such.

What happened? Why modern devices are so inferior and, well, boring?


Modern devices are made to be disposable like their owners. The collapse of the Soviet Union unleashed 3 billion cheap workers. That's when this all started.


I've been back on Nokia for a few month. A really old one. It holds up well, and my mind is at peace.
No tracking, no notifications, no permanent internet.


Yep, nokias were rock solid compared to any modern phone.
