The most special people

If I could just know exactly who Virt was, I'd be happy.
Was he an Alt? Was he known to anyone? I don't want that mystery to die unsolved.

 

Also, there are 3 names that spring to my mind as missing;

Superfireydave, Goth, and Zebra.

Those 3 are people I learned a lot from; I mean superfireydave was actually responsible for finding my surgeon and letting me (somewhat) see again; so there really is some life changing stuff in this forum 🙂

Goth is still around, and busy. Probably seeing him tonight (and Cumming, and Fenn and AD and MrFriendly and Mac Dude).

Hi 🙂

hoo boy, Last time I saw Zebra, I went to visit him at his work. I couldn't even comprehend the sort of stuff he was working with. This was more than enterprise networking, more than running a datacentre, madness!

/emerges from the lurking shadows

Firstly,  congratulations to all the new heroes and supers! So many great people who I love in this list, all so deserving. I too honestly thought many of you were already promoted to these ranks and I thought I was reading a bumped up hero announcement post from 10 years ago or something lol.  So well done you obviously fabulous people who are consistently high quality ❤️ LOVE YOU GUYS!!  

 

 

And now for the memory lane part, bit of an unexpected turn in the thread remembering our dearly departed...

There's two who come to mind immediately for me and I'm mortified to realise I can't bring their atomic names to the fore just now.

The first was that young guy who loved this place to bits. He was in a car accident in NSW I believe . His mum and close friends contributed to a thread here for quite a while

The other is the guy @osama_bin_athlon I think he was Cheekychops uncle in order for her to attend one of the first m33ts ...

@Antraman is another << he was a security guard irl ( I think ) and another who seemed to like being here too ...

 

Yep, that's basically correct - Osama Bin Athlon is my honorary Uncle. The first time we met in person was at M33t v3 in 2003. I was 16 at the time, and minors weren't allowed on premise at the Strike Bowling Bar without a responsible adult/carer looking after them. Security were doing the rounds kicking people out, and in true Atomic spirit, OBA vouched for me pretending to be my Uncle and telling security that I was under his care when they asked me for my non existent ID lol. He told me i'm part of the Atomic family and i'm not getting kicked out under his watch, I was so grateful for that ❤️ 

 

Ever since, I have lovingly referred to him as Uncle OBA. His real daughter is a lovely, awesome chick and we instantly became friends, she's similar age as me and we chatted on MSN a lot back in those days. She also joined the Atomic forums as OBA_Spawn and she also came along to future m33ts with OBA. Her and I hung out together - great memories with them!  🙂 

 

OBA_Spawn contacted me a few years ago on Facebook to let me know the sad news that her father had passed away 😞

I doubt he would return but Globe, whom I talk to quite often, has long been gone.

His one time friend lectric is in the States so unlikely to logon.

Gharfield and the Fuzz, Zephyr, Donnagem, list goes on.

Cheers

 

 

 

Awww GL0Be and Lectric! I used to chat with Lectric all the time via MSN, PM and IRC, he was the one who introduced me to IRC in the first place and the old Atomic IRC channels 😄

 I also miss IvanTheTerrible and his daily bad jokes. And kunzie - or the pulling thereof... 

 

I wonder if one day I'll be allowed to return on my original account?

 

 

 

Love IvanTheTerrible.

He checked out over ten years ago.
Sad, the guy was extremely funny and smart....very unhinged though.

This was the YT video he sent me before he killed himself.
