So I was digging through old email and I found a registration notice from -[email]- from 4/18/2005. This email informed me that I should keep the information included in that email for my personal records. My account information is as follows...
For you folks that were not around back then, quart-life.com was the forum site for the FT community at that time. I'm not going to be a (more than usual) dick and pretend that I know what happened before April of 2005. I do remember taking a sick day around this time. I might have spent the day nursing a hangover. I might have also spent the day playing CSS on an FT server.
FT is much older than me. I didn't ask many questions when I got involved because we all know that I was too busy scheming about the cs_office rules / plugins / drama that I wanted to inflict on you! Joking aside: changing forums in 2005 was onerous (as was changing server hosting, but that's another story...) I remember feeling crushed that I would lose my post count on the old forums.
It's amazingly boner-tingling that this site still exists. It's also incredibly depressing that I still visit this site.
I don't really know how to take the edge off of that--it IS depressing. There are also amazing stories to tell; like the one where abortedfetus convinces Kalibur that he was gay.
Maybe we should spin some FT tales? The word around the campfire is that Nostie has a girlfriend.
Back in 2007-2008ish Kremit somehow got my number and was really high and kept asking me to come over and hang out.
I made this gem:

You must think that I am the king of detecting sarcasm in what you type.
The way you are wording your posts make it seem like you just see girls as pieces of ass. We are sorry Noskill, our dicks haven't plundered into countless pieces of ass. At least some of us can respect women for who they are and not for their gigantic, bulging fake tits and probably loose vagina.
Sex should be saved for when it matters most, not an abused privilege like you make it to be.
Still one of the most cringeworthy posts anyone has ever made on any public forum ever.
I am truthfully scared of the shit I posted on this site in 2008. I was such a moron.
I don't know why I keep coming back here. I really don't. I sure loved playing CSS with you all, but I don't game in any variety. I guess I'm just paying homage to a part of me that once existed.
You all are great dudes, we had a lot of fun. There really isn't a way for us to connect anymore outside of FT forums. The shit we joke about isn't really kosher on any other form of social media.
I play D&D every week with my brothers and some friends. It's largely a blast. I've actually taken to writing a bunch of campaigns up and I have considered attempting to get a job with Wizards of the Coast... but I would have to move cross-country I'd imagine. I have a lot of fun with it though, I can channel my creativity pretty well into it.
I have a girlfriend who is perfect. I am back in school, finally (Straight A's motherfuckers). I am working at a restaurant, making good money and hanging out with people I genuinely like.
The oddest thing about this site is wondering about the guys who don't come here anymore. Goat. Eagle. Steel. I kinda wonder what dudes like that are up to.
I have genuine anxiety that Aborted Fetus was arrested for crimes against propriety. A genuine anxiety that there's a little, balding, pot bellied FBI/CIA/SAS/MI5/KGB/FSB internet forensic investigator posing as one of you and reading all of our cringe worthy posts.
A genuine anxiety that my tinfoil hat may not be working.
I wish I was around for the golden years.... I feel like the last guy to die from smallpox before it was eradicated. Although I do remember seeing some gems from when MadV & Killtime (irl friends) posted threads and went HAM on the FT servers to get their kdr's high. Good ol Pracket rages and stripe noscope headshots are the only fond memories I can recall. That and surfing my ass off for hours on end. GOOD times, goooood times.
