I went looking for an old post of mine tonight. What I found in the search kept me fascinated for three hours. Old names, old posts, old subjects, but for those who are bored with the repetitiveness of JB these days, perhaps you may enjoy a visit to the past.

For those who have been around for a while, I simply propose that you post the URL of one of your favourite threads here. By simply following the link, the relative newcomers can enjoy some of the highlights of the past.

I'll start with this link (http://www.pprune.org/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=11556&highlight=kids)

I have lots of others in mind, and they don't have to be lots of pages long to qualify; just interesting!

Let's hear from the old timers. :ok:

No no! I spend far too much time here as it is without wandering down memory lane.....

How tragic that so much was lost in the Great Server Crash.

This (http://www.pprune.org/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=11838&highlight=pilot+broken) thread by a fairly virgin Drapes.
Interesting way to start ones career as the most prolific poster on a pilot website! ;)

Hmm, many others come to mind Bins, you've now seriously disrupted my afternoon's think time.

Yep, the old nostalgia threads were much better than the nostalgia threads we get today.:(

7th Dec 2004, 14:20
Yeah. *sigh* Nostalgia ain't what it used to be. :{

I still think this could be a great thread if egos don't get in the way. :uhoh:

Is this like one of those re-run shows you see on Friends or The Simpsons :E

Thanks for the link Binos. Now I remember why I came to pprune in the first place.

Yes, the pilot broken thread... remember reading that one. Had to run a search a while back - around August or so - and re-read it. Do you think that TCOTPWM thread would also be considered a classic? (Pardon me for not providing a link)

Hmm.....the Drapes 'original' struck a chord somewhere. Perhaps he wrote the script forSalad Fingers (http://www.pprune.org/forums/showthread.php?s=threadid=142351&highlight=salad+fingers)

C'mon Drapes - CONFESS:E

I like any thread where Cornhole/airhag/whateverthehellhe'scallinghimselfthistime thinks he's funny.

12th Dec 2004, 21:35
Think they call him 'Woomera' or something..... :E

Oh great!:rolleyes: Not only do we get Summer re-runs on the idiot box, now I've got re-runs on JB!!!

Anything by Capt IF Snailtrails used to bring a smile to my face. When PPRuNe was distributed by email he wrote a fantastic soap opera - it was the first thing I checked in my mailbox each morning.

Ahh, but Buster, would you rather watch a rerun of Witness for the Prosecution or a new series of Baywatch?

Happened to run across this old discussion (http://www.pprune.org/forums/showthread.php?threadid=54240&perpage=15&highlight=legalised&pagenumber=1) and enjoyed hearing the arguments again.

Whatever happened to llamas? How nice to hear a realistic viewpoint. Nostradamus appears to have gone the same way.

I genuinely believe a well reasoned argument in these pages can shape peoples' beliefs, or at least make them less reflexively antipathetic. Wish there were more of it now.

Edited to say it can't be peoples' can it, because that would imply the existence of peoples as a word. Bugger. People's? Too hard for a Tuesday night. :ooh:

Buster Just think of it as Pprune +1 - the internet equivalent of all Sky's repeats of repeats one hour later
