Truly, we have all gathered here to find network spirituality and network unity through the correct praxis, not by using political molecules. Gather around and let me tell you the secret and story of a world that was once zephyred as the "digital revolution"

>>477 This. I miss more when owning your movies/music was the norm, before streaming took over. Sure you can still buy physical CDs/DVDs, but nowadays those get released less and less. Also you have shit like Bluray that will outright refuse to play on certain devices... On the bright side we can now rip music from streaming platforms so I guess that's the next best thing?
I have a Family Video near me that's going strong ever since Blockbuster went bust.
>>831 The one where I live went out of business recently. It's sad, but I was glad it was able to hang on for so long. Some of my fondest early childhood memories include renting Super Nintendo games from a Family Video store.

Hey there! I have aided some buddies of mine in creating a retro webring in the hopes of inspiring others to make some of their own. Feel free to check it out

A thread about old software revival projects Fellow Time Traveler 04/08/2020 (Wed) 00:05:16 No.481 [Reply]
I recently found out about Escargot (https://escargot.log1p.xyz/) which is a MSN Messenger revival project so let's have a thread about other projects to revive old software / games. There's also a really nice one for AIM too. http://iwarg.ddns.net/aim/ Missing file >>1389

Infinity Cup Fellow Time Traveler 11/10/2019 (Sun) 03:07:58 No.179 [Reply]
Anons, As that one anon that's been working on the Infinity Cup for all this time, I feel like the boards that were set to participate deserve a bit better than radio silence. For those that aren't caught up or need a quick rundown: >The Infinity Cup is a virtual soccer(football[divegrass]) tournament, with its roots dating back to the earliest days of 8chan >It takes place in Pro Evolution Soccer (PES), a virtual soccer franchise from Konami >I took on the responsibility of organizing the 5th iteration of the Cup back at the beginning of this year >Over months, I learned how to mod PES to put in each board's respective team and run simulated games between them >Using pre-existing guides (many not in English) I also learned how to mod the game from an aesthetic and quality of life standpoint, including crowds, referees, stadiums, balls, and even rudimentary player models >24 boards agreed to participate, and the Cup was scheduled to begin August 9th >On August 4th/5th, we received word that 8chan was losing its host, the site went down relatively shortly after >With no site and no functioning central hub, the Cup was postponed. >I disappear for about a month >I return in October >We still don't have a site, but we do have a webring. >You are here. The whole point of this is to see if anyone still cares at this point. There was hype for the Cup. Yes, some boards cared much more than others but there 24 willing boards and we had the resources to run the Cup. I put in probably far more work on my own than any sane person should have, so I don't want this all to go to waste. That being said though, if we set a date, gather the required parties, and begin streaming the Cup and 6 people show up, I'd rather just not do it at all. I'm going around posting this on every participant board that's here on the webring and I'll try to get this up on 8kun somehow. In the meantime just post in here so I can get a sense of interest from you.

/retro34/-Hentai and Skinemax Nostalgia Anonymous 09/07/2019 (Sat) 01:17:04 No.5 [Reply]
I know this is gonna sound weird, but you ever feel a sense of nostalgia for hentai you enjoyed from back in the day? The 90's and 2000's had some good titles, and I'll include a lot of the 80's titles in this as well since most of them didn't get released in the West until the 90's or early 2000's. IIRC, Legend of the Overfiend came out in 1987 in Japan but did not get a release in the West until 1993. I think the first three parts of the Urotsukidoji OVA was the first hentai release in America ever. Central Park Media took the different OVA installments of Urotsukidoji and edited them into four feature-length movies, the first of which got a limited theatrical release in the 90's. Of course, there were other classics like La Blue Girl, Ogenki Clinic, and Lyon Flare in the 90's and you also had Bible Black back in the early 2000's.

90's Bootleg Merch Fellow Time Traveler 09/12/2019 (Thu) 00:10:08 No.31 [Reply]
One thing I loved about the 90's was the overabundance of bootleg merchandise, T-Shirts in particular.

The myriad knock-off shirts with Bart Simpson were so common in the early 90's it even became a meme.

You also had a lot of other common targets of bootlegs such as Sonic, TMNT, Sailor Moon, and as always, the big name rock bands and rappers.

After copyright enforcement got more stringent, you did not see this type of stuff as often, not even at the usual venues like flea markets, gas stations, fairgrounds, and any town with a major tourist trap nearby.
I remember whole shops in Florida in the late 1980's being full of design your own T-shirt bootleg merch...

Windows Media Player Skins Fellow Time Traveler 11/14/2019 (Thu) 06:00:53 No.187 [Reply]
Started collecting these recently. I've uploaded everything I've got (160+ skins) to the Internet Archive.
Most skins were retrieved from Microsoft and The Skins Factory through the Wayback Machine, although some were obtained through other means. Enjoy.

OP here. It's been a while but I recently created a Neocities site for my WMP skins collection. Should be a lot easier to navigate than the archive.org link. https://wmpskinsarchive.neocities.org Missing post | No.986 | 03/27/2021 03:25:28

Wild West Fellow Time Traveler 10/31/2019 (Thu) 12:09:42 No.168 [Reply]
I want to go back. When browsing the Web felt like going on an adventure.

What substitutes for "Wild West" these days? All I can think of are Tor, Zeronet, and the vast array of imageboards. Discord can feel pretty wild too sometimes, that is if you can find the right servers.

Post what you know, please.

>>368 Other way for me, i tried watching and create stuff based on my tastes, which are biased towards the board's era subject, and made me lorn for those things again.
>>372 I know how you feel. Keep going at it and the feeling will wear off after a while, like a year or so... You can only indulge in nostalgia for so long before your brain gets bored and you lose the rose-colored glasses. Let your yearning for the past be a drive to recreate it somewhat, at least in the digital sense. Like writing geocities-styled websites and sharing existing ones, creating pixel art and 3D art, composing MIDI/MOD files, programming vidya...etc.
>>377 Yes, i guess you are right, been doing it for 6 months or so. Will post about it when i have refined it enough for presentation.
