Ahhhh Snowman. I am so glad we kept in touch all these years! I remember some serious hysterics (laughing until I had tears in my eyes) and then some serious hysterics (wanting to kick some drama queens in the box.) Somewhere on my computer I have some of the IRC stuff saved. People would never guess that a bunch of semi-geeks could write the comedy gold we often did. And without a script, it was all off-the-cuff!
holy cow!! dwm has come back! i'm glad to see you're still amongst us. happy b-day, dwm. don't be a stranger. and yes, frosty's right. there were many times in irc when i couldn't stop laughing due to you and a few others (hippy, voo, chris, frosty).
Speaking of Hippy, voo (the two maddest Scotsmen possible) and Chris (and a few more)....
Here are few 'outtakes' and quotes from the past years on #Stardock on their IRC:

I could dig out more, but I'd just piss myself laughing.
Thanks for those good years, guys. Sadly gone, but certainly not forgotten.
