I’m thinking that the ShiZZa Room Generator is missing from the proggies. I believe there were two versions. I remember mine stopped working and led me to an empty room one day but digging around found me an updated version that took me to a full warez room. Thanks for doing this BTW, LOVE the podcast.
I appreciate it! Do you have a copy of the room generator?
I remember you stoney, and every name on the list from #DwK. My name was warped, I was in ShiZZa for a while, mostly as a uploader and mass mailer, and I had a botnet that held both channels for a long time. Brings back a lot of memories. No idea how to get in contact with any of the people on your list anymore unfortunately.
Great to hear from you Warped! I remember you too! If you feel like chatting you can see how to contact me in the show notes for a recent AOL Underground episode!
Feels good to hear cam0s voice again. Fellow nv2 alumni. I miss you all.
holy shit I forgot about menace!!! I’d love to hear from that kid too!! and Myke and Seek. I kept up with them for awhile. Dude I can’t even believe that prog list jesus christ that takes me WAY BACK. I don’t think I’ve smiled this big since back then honestly. I saw two of mine on there… I know there’s more but I straight up can’t remember the names. I made megatron c comz and gundam password cracker. – keith aka sinn

Thanks for checking in, I actually am going to be recording another episode hopefully next week!
Just found this podcast and site, loving it! I sometimes think about all of the hours and hours I spent in the AOL scene in the late 90s. My handle was Spin and I did graphic art, wrote articles, and defaced keywords
Is there an AOL Underground Discord? The link above for a discord seems broken.
I fixed the discord link. The hyperlink description was correct, but the underlying hyperlink was incorrect. There is it a re-aol discord, there is the “re-aol” discord, which has been renamed P3OL.
Here is the link:
