enjoy 4chan greentext format for this epic true tale of yore:

>be me in 2006 or 2007
>17 yr old stepmania nerd
>big school trip to italy and greece
>fucking thaor is italian !
>reach out to him and tell him i'll be in rome and area during x dates
>thaor lives like 20 mins walk outside of rome and is down to meet !!
>get thaor's number but never seen another country code before (weird?)
>enter school trip
>get to rome and we have a couple hours free time
>one of my friends agrees to go on a quest to meet thaor
>go to payphone, insert foreign coins and get dial tone
>attempt to dial number but it has + and a country code, me being confused noob likely doesn't dial it correctly
>call ends up failing
>it's 2006-2007 and cell phones suck, i had left mine at home cuz out of country
>try getting to an internet cafe
>at this point only have an hour left
>my friend gets flakey, we decide to give up

I still wish that would have went down, I was hoping to be player 2 during some legendary score lmao

ps. my parents were chaperones on the trip and i def never said shit to them or they'd lose it. Imagine some 17 yr old and his buddy in a foreign place meeting a random 20 something from the net? My parents were ultra strict too haha

le sigh

I remember having an FFR meetup with myself

But yeah my parents are very relaxed with the internet and that's probably because my lack of ever telling them what I do out of paranoia that they could be looking over my shoulder at any second.

The first person I met from FFR was Tokzic who has remained a very dear friend to me through the years

Then my parents dropped me off over the border to meet ipatch because I didn't have a car LOL. but he had come to visit me for a few days first so they kinda knew him. Still kinda sketchy looking back ahahaha

They just want me to do school work, go to university and get a good job as if they don't have any other purpose for me in life.

tl;dr "Computer make you crazy, just do school and get job, idc."

It might seem silly but they're just wanting the best for you. Even though their idea of best might not align with your own. Really easy for me to preach this when I felt the same for x number of years.

All you can do is what you can do.

Lot of old names in here. Miss WSF.

People from the site I've met are Nestlekwik, LittleNekoChan, psp31, and apparently Amber Lee Connors (I forgot what her screen name is, but she claimed to actually recognize mine)

I keep threatening to drive up and meet SunFan and dAnceguy but I'm bad at promises and 2020 has not been super kind to taking trips. I also live disgustingly closw to EastSideMan (or did years ago) yet we just kept missing each other until he slowly faded from the site.

I’ve met T-Force and Drizzle in person. They were very great guests and it was fun to have them over.

Trevor got to meet my whole family and stayed overnight lol that was the weirdest thing to ever ask if it was ok. DRG came over when I’d moved out so it was a nonissue there.

There’s a few people I want to meet from here still though.

I met _.infinity._ (can't remember the punctuation) at a quizbowl tournament at my college, lol.

Other than that, zero contact in the outside world.

Let me tell you, I did not think he was as tall as he was. He also greeted me with like, a triple hit of purely Canadian stereotypes.

Was a very good time.

1.) Being overly polite.
2.) "eh?"
What was the 3rd?

EDIT: I probably apologized for something, didn't I.

the first person i ever met online was charles claythorne (aka mashi aka a goat), on valentine's day, in nyc. we went to an arcade

at the end he thought i hated him 'cause i didn't talk but you know. also my roommate (i was a freshman in college then) was like "DON'T DIE. LET ME KNOW WHEN YOU COME HOME" and i was like "it's mashi it's ok"

since then i've met more ffr folks and saw mashi a second time

My parents were pretty paranoid about even allowing me to freely access the internet. Which, of course, mysteriously stopped the moment I entered high school. I guess they had no choice but to accept the reality that the world was changing and that frequent computer use was the new norm.
