Twenty years from now, half the world will be uninhabitable due to human folly, but this site will still be up on whatever remains of the internet for some damn reason.

My forums account is almost old enough to legally drink (in the USA).

tbf i wasn't expecting the winamp forums to rise from the ashes from that OVH fire from a while back, as the forums probably has some very valuable info on modern skins not archived anywhere else, and that's worrying

Just over 19 years it seems.

Today, I encountered a 'Winamp is back'-type news story linking to this forum.

Realized I spent a lot of time here as a kid.

Remembered my awfully bad password. Logged in for the first time since May 2007.

Proceeded to cringe read harmless nonsense I wrote here as a teenager.

I was clearly looking for some, any online place to fit in. I did find a bunch of good music recommendations here. Everyone was remarkably civilized and kid friendly, too. Good mod work, probably. Thanks!

Still taking it all in while surprised by how intensely this fairly mundane rediscovery hits. Does everything involving time passed and past selves feel like this to old people?

Yeah, coming back into something like this after years away will definitely bring back a curious mix of memories & emotions. One funny thing that's kept it installed along the way with me is that the few things I'd found nearly as easy to use ended up with spyware or wanting to install extra ware or just decided to make a buck harvesting your data since it was installed on your system.. I've never had that concern with Winamp. And, it still does the trick great for playing music and being able to enjoy great AVS (visual effects) if you want 'em.
Plus, excited to see how the new iterations shape up.!

Talk about some nostalgia.. I went back into ActiveWorlds and looked at things I built there in 1999. I really need to fix some of that stuff up but, instead got into using their newer capabilities and have found a much more refined experience now that I'm not just slappin' parts onto the ground to see what I could put together but, designing things that are definitely more mature products (compared to thrown up walls & floors that you hoped would meet and not overlap).

Dunno if you used IrfanView but, it's still around too and working great for image tasks.

Yeah, gettin' old though.. Wish I'd known then what I do now. haha
