    I think I got my username around 96 or 97 after we got our first computer and internet connection.
    College was all about setting up the profiles and setting funny away messages.
    The good ole days.

    The end of an era.

    it's been a long time since i've used it. 2006 or 8 maybe? When the friend list started being just 2 or 3 people who actually used the thing, i stopped signing in too.

    I remember in college, my roommate and I, bored at night, would make up funny user names and enter chat rooms.

    *Bobs Left Nut has entered the room...
    *Bobs Left Nut: "Hey, have any of you guys seen my other nut?
    .
    .
    .

    *Bobs Right Nut has entered the room...

    hilarity ensues. and we're hits for a few min, and then it's on to the next room. drunk stupid bored.... lol

    The first time I used it I was 10 years ond in 96, and I chatted with my cousin who was studying abroad in Chile. I was blown away with the fact that I could do that. Before that it was 100% phone or mail for me. In 2004 when I started college, everyone was on there. Facebook came out late 04, and slowly killed it off. By the time I graduated in 08, it was basically dead. Nobody I cared about was on there.
