    2002-2003 were slow news years, it seems.

    That's happened to the whole internet and TV. Cable channel adverts last almost as long as the shows themselves now. It's getting a bit out of hand. I don't mind if sites need ads to keep going but flash ads seem to be crashing Safari more and more - a few on this site. Use gifs or something.

    Yeah, noticed that too. That said, the boards are so much better designed now and operate a hell of a lot better.



    How long did the blackout last? I registered in January 2000 I think originally...

    More adds!



    The boards have gotten a little uglier over the last couple years, although they have become more functional. I think that might be just because the general trend of forums. Could also be not having Brad as a minion haha. I have learned to like the 'insider' information a lot more though. It's the first site I check out now.

    The layout hasn't changed much. The colors and the members, to some degree, have. I can't believe that I've now been on AI for over eight years. Yikes.

    I don't know how long exactly, but it sure felt like forever.

    I came across the blackout when trying to get screenshots. You can check how long it lasted at www.archive.org -- the way back machine.
