Forum online for 5 years and counting...

Just happened to notice that we've reached the five year mark on the forum:

Board started: 23 Jan 2003 01:31 am


Hard to believe it's been five years since I downloaded/configured phpBB2 using (at the time) SGI's Freeware versions of MySQL/PHP/Apache on a Indigo2. It was all done on a whim; I wasn't sure if anyone would even use it.

Here's the first post from that night:

This place rocks. Some of the smartest people post on here. People are (generally) polite and we don't have much trolling/spamming

Wicked stuff. Even if a lot of us have come to live a lot of changes, nekochan.net is still here!

Congratulations and greets out of Kabul, currently freeeeeezing cold.

Sad to say, I haven't turned on my O2 in a while, but I still come to Nekochan a few times a day. Great community.
