HuSi

Wow.


HuSi was at least 6 years old on the 13th of September.

So, there you go.

Who'd have thought we'd still be going after this long.

Update [2009-9-15 21:30:51 by hulver]: Actually, I posted the first story on the 20th June 2002. So, over 7 years.

But thanks for the seven years anyway!

Damn.

That's a lot of words.  Seven years?  Damn.

Thanks, man. This is an excellent little experiment.

IRC by ucblockhead (4.00 / 2) #14 Tue Sep 15, 2009 at 06:16:32 PM EST
I was just saying on IRC yesterday that I realized I've been posting to Husi twice as long as I was posting to K5 before I got annoyed and left for husi.

[ucblockhead is] useless and subhuman
huh by Kellnerin (4.00 / 2) #18 Tue Sep 15, 2009 at 08:50:09 PM EST
I went to verify the truth of this (only relative to me), and damn. Also, the first Google results for "Kellnerin Kuro5hin" are a riddal by fleece that I almost got, but didn't, and a "______ is not a word" flamewar I don't remember getting into. Good times.

My own landmark: I was getting married when the grand K5 exodus happened; I came back from my honeymoon and everyone was on Husi. That was just a touch over six years ago. Time is strange.

Yay for husi! by R343L (4.00 / 2) #19 Tue Sep 15, 2009 at 09:15:44 PM EST
I can honestly say that I cannot imagine my life being how it is (and as good) without it. I mean, maybe I would have started being friends with MillMan, aphrael, jared, etc. via K5 which started me towards being much happier ... except I didn't. I did through here.

So all hail hulver's good sense!

i doubt it by aphrael (4.00 / 3) #20 Tue Sep 15, 2009 at 09:19:46 PM EST
because k5 had lost much of its community feel before Husi, not after.

there's something to that. by aphrael (2.00 / 0) #40 Wed Sep 16, 2009 at 08:16:25 AM EST
i think i'd phrase it more: it became a community again.

which is to say there was definitely a period where it wasn't.

I don't think I can quite explain just how much this community means to me, and you, hulver, made it happen.

Thanks Hulver.

for everything. like so many of the other people posting here, my life would be manifestly different if it weren't for this website.

how many other online communities have so deeply touched the lives of so many of their members?
