it shutdown almost exactly two years and a month ago. The first time round atleast.. (I think, atleast, do you have a record of the date mark?)


  • *sniff sniff* meeeeemmooorrriiiieeeeeessss.....
  • You guys talk about o8 a lot. What was so great about it?

    Don't ask me. I shut it down.
  • heh. well i was looking through my old old phone this weekend and i found a text from when it shut. You must admit it was a great place if you didnt have all the hassle of running it and taking everyones shit, mark.

  • Speaking as someone who never used forums much.
    What was o8? and why is it regarded so fondly?
  • It was a messageboard mark used to run after dreamless shutdown containing the 08 - meaningless and shallow topic from dreamless. Some people hated it, some people fucked it up, the rest (myself included) enjoyed our time there. It was always a useful way to waste time and was generally full of nice (helpful) people. Like this place but less focussed on support and more on random shit. And private.

    I'm too lazy to search too... :D
  • it was a way of life. I still have my o8 beanie
  • MarkMark Vanilla Staff
    Me too :) THX 2 HONEYG
  • i never got one. someone make one!
  • you missed out.

  • wow has it been that long? Seems like only yesterday. *cue music*
  • i remember trying to get an o8 tshirt project running but noone could be bothered. We should make one for old times sake. Or a lussumo one...rape those threadless fuckers at their own game.
  • here's a blast from the past. heh.

  • wasn't o8 transferring something like 10 gigs of text a week at one point?
  • jesus. that is a lot of text! I wish I was there for o8.

    deel - yes, the busiest we ever got was appx 30 gigs of transfer in one day.... and the server barely slowed down at all. Gotta love streamlined software like that :)
  • I can believe it with the amount the threads used to jump around. That is a real heap of text tho.
  • I still have this from a secret santa thing
