Default Anyone remember when bbpix looked like this?

That was back in 2004... man I need to add that kind of flair back to the site. For the last three years or so it's been using a vanilla install of Celerondude's uploader.

Having similar nostalgia moments looking back at candidforums.com and badassgeeks.com heheh

That last CandidForums (Get your uNF on!) dates back to before 2004 - and I still think it's some of my best graphic design work to this day. It was VERY unique and stylish.

You know what's funny? I still remember the name of the TrueType font I used - "Pookie". I need to find that again, I used to have like 50,000 fonts but lost them all many years ago.

That last nacho-man.org logo? That goes WAAAAY back..... We're talkin over ten years.

My very first forum, a few weeks after Shaytana and I got together to set it up:

http://web.archive.org/web/200206092...an.org/forums/

A month later we switched from "BeCandid Forums" and a subdomain off nacho-man.org to our own domain (candidforums.com).

Check out how much vBulletin has changed in over EIGHT YEARS.

OMGF ... BeCandid!

You said CandidForums, that makes me sad ... I kind of know how people feel when they have to pull the plug on a loved one's life support

I was Nacho-Man for sooo long before I changed to "Da`Nacho" back in around 1997. I went as "Nacho-Man" starting in my early BBSing days back in he late 1980's using my C-64 and later the PC.

Right about the time I go into the IRC scene (Internet Relay Chat) in 97 is when I changed from Nacho-Man to Da`Nacho and I remained Da`Nacho until around 2003 or 2004 when I wanted a new name and my aunt Julie came up with "Nox". I believe "NOX" was some type of gaseous emissions or something... she looked it up and stuck me with it and it's been that way ever since.

You'll notice I even changed my name back to "Nox" here after trying to shed it last month. I think I's stuck with it for good, lol.

I think I still have that banner of "mine" actually. That one and the one with the fruit. Possibly even Tithead too.
