Welcome aboard, Ander! Die in a car fire! I'm glad to see that you found our little hole in the wall and I hope you've got some old online buddies that you'll bring along as well. It is my hope that as time goes on we will build up a community of people who just don't dig the mainstream social networking sites.

We've been here since 1988, back in the dialup days. What was the name of your Citadel? It's possible that we networked for a while :)

Ander, if you're looking for something closer to the original Citadel UI experience, try ssh bbs@uncensord.citadel.org, or telnet bbs@uncensored.citadel.org for that oh-so-fresh feeling.

telnet uncensored.citadel.org. No bbs@ there.

Ah, I usually ssh there that mistake makes sense to me.

And it seems Ander hasn't returned since Oct 7. I hope he comes back.

I was hoping he would bring his brothers Orer and Noter.

Maybe we should'a told him he wasn't expected to *actually* die in a car fire...

Where did the die in a car fire meme originate anyway?

On a side note, my father did actually die in a car fire.. so, die in a car fire!

That meme started with grey elf as I recall.

fleeb- I meant, what was the story behind it?

As far as memes go, I've always been a fan of fark.com's "UFIA." That one never gets old.

During one of the many periods when Grelf dwelled among us (he'll be back; it goes in cycles dontcha know) we were having a particularly heavy influx of new visitors to the site, and anyone who introduced themselves was greeted with a chorus of welcomes. Grelf invited the newbies to "die in a car fire" as a contrast to all of the happy, chipper welcomes.

And now it's the standard welcome. Die in a car fire!

(But yes, it *is* a meme, and it should go without saying that our sympathy goes out to anyone who's *actually* been through that type of experience.)

Wow.. I vanish for so long that my account gets purged.. and THIS is the topic?  Amazing.

To whom it may concern, the aforementioned grelf was not a funny person.  He was, and probably still is, a total asshole.  With any luck, he's being dragged under a bus somewhere.  If you feel that you are in some way clueless because you don't get the joke of "die in a car fire", you can stop worrying now.

There are two things I don't worry about; whatever that thing is, and whatever the other thing is.
