Well, that's certainly an interesting perspective of history.
personally the only thing i learned from those videos that didn't know before was eric outing himself as the long held mystery date.
plus karl g. give a ratt zazz, yet it weighs so heavily on his mind that he felt it cruicial to include this insignificant footnote to a footnote in E•S history.
the more he denied it the more conspicuous it seemed that i was compelled to go back over the whole 16 page thread.
it's so obvious, now that i can see the forest & not the trees.
if you absolutely have
to stick a pin in a moment of time, here is the true begining of the E•S forum:
Michael on May 24 said:
I would be glad to host a forum for these discussions at mine. It doesn't have the same theme as visforvoltage, but I am my own service provider so I won't ever have to worry about mine being shut down
It's mainly got e-bike related stuff, but I can add more categories as they are needed.
by his own telling eric wasn't there for the discussion at the begining & wouldn't be showing his face for 4 more years!
so eric why aren't all hot n sweaty for v?
if anything you might
have some small claim in the lineage of the current v.net as that's a more direct line.
it was the
go to place at the time where all the kool kidz hung out.
if history had unfolded a little differently, if v.net hadn't imploded with gman going mad with power.
with everyone congregating over there & safe being the lone Wall-E poster here would you still be so keen on buying E•S?
we all know the answer to that, we'd be treated to videos of how you're the true father of VisforVoltage.
david herron would laugh in your face & rightfully so.
your impact on E•S is tangential at best & the emperor had the wisdom to recognize you would have gone all gman on us if you owned it.
dodged a bullet there, justin is the most benevolent dictator you could ever find, or hope for, or even imagine.
that was the begining of the exodus.
for the genesis only michael brown knows for certain but by my recollection the E•S forum was up & live i'll say over a year prior to that when i had initially tripped across it.
it consisted if your basic sparse php bulletin board with no activity on it save the few posts from knightmb.
the Endless-Sphere homepage consisted of a stock photo of a pretty young thing in an office setting as the face of micheal's website with ad copy outling the services he provided.
the ES vectorwire globe replaced it after everyone had to re-register by clicking to agree to new terms & conditons, suspiciously shortly before the sale to trevor anyone else remember that?
why do grown men lust after the name so?
eric should have simply appropriated the name along with the stolen database while he was at it.
neptronix got away with appropriating it, notice he didn't call it the neptronix ebike facebook page; a real class act.
but it is in keeping with the tradition sarted by michael brown when he first appropriated the name.
right when he initially set up his online business, scratching his head staring at the screen's flashing cursor asking...
'Enter Server Volume Name?.?.?.?.?.?.........'
looks over in the corner at the floor lamp in his home office standing next to his desk.
that's right illuminated initiates.
all kneel & bow down, worship the majesty & the power (all 150 watts of it) that is the awesomeness of the all-knowing sacred lamp.
hey, it's still not as whacked as scientology.
