Yeah, I was on IRC a lot back on those days too. Remind me what is A/S/L?

I did IRC in the early-mid 90s as well.  Interestingly enough, my handle was "Shiner."  Except another guy tended to steal it, so I switched to Shyner.

It was pretty much the standard greeting for the "chat rooms" that I ventured into.   Age/Sex/Location  was what it stood for.

I think that became more common after I stopped spending much time on IRC, which was probably about 1993.

This I don't get.  No NFL for Bob.  No other helmet school for Bob.  But yes to XFL?

I think the wife got tired of him hanging around the house and told him to get back to work

I was trying to create it into something from the alt.sex.l* hierarchy of UseNet. Your explanation is better (and a little less weird!).
I remember getting the video capture card to work, and starting "CUSeeMe". It was an endless chat environment exclusively comprised of CompSci nerds staring morosely at the screen, plus the occasional random d*ck pic.
Really not much has changed.

I'm not sure the exact years that I was active on mIRC but know it included '95-96 and I actually did meet up with people on there as a stupid teen who had recently got their drivers license.  I'm lucky I didn't get chopped up, but all the ones I met up with WERE total nerds.     Then again, I still meet up with some of you people from the internet so maybe I haven't gotten any wiser...

Beat a bunch of Texas teams.  Win the conf title.  Win the bowl if it doesn’t matter.  Lose the bowl if it does.  Rinse. Repeat.
Maybe it just got old ...

perhaps this is the stepping stone to impress Jerry (Skeletor) Jones and coach the Cowgirls
