I wasn't here before Bill Nichols or John Channing and I'm not as good a liar as Sailor Steve but I deserve the prize.
:p :p

If you look carefully, you'll see that Neal has 0 posts and I have over 150, so I was here posting BEFORE Neal even created Subsim, so I WIN !!
I don't know...

I see five posts by Neal in that thread alone, and it still says 0. I'm thinking it's some kind of evil Texas juju. I wouldn't mess with it.

BS. I was the first! I've been playing sub sims since the days when graphics were done with ASCII characters! Someone one day decided that wasn't enough and made GATO with 4 colors! I was going to make a board, but Neal beat me to the punch. That is why I refused to post on his board when it first started, but I was one of the first! :p

Does that count?

Well if that counts as "evidence" then double BS.. I've been playing subsims since I was six...I had a baking soda powered one for the bathtub...and a red and grey plastic one ,also for the bath, that actually fired spring powered torpeos...then there was the periscope that I won at the county fair and painted sub mark lines on the lens... I used that to play with when while I watched SILENT SERVICE on TV..which hadn't been invented all that long...never mind computers..that takes me back to age 6 or 7 ...then there is my hypnotist's report,if you can believe her, that I had a past life as a German submariner back in WWII...need I go on...

Many years ago, Sailor Steve and Neal came to me, asking for my help to set up the forums. I remember it clearly as I'd just devised a means of producing operationally safe cast iron cannon and had some spare time. I said:

"Sure I'll help thee, as I like the cut of both of yer jibs. My, how handsome you are Sailor Steve, you must get many a bashful look from the good womenfolk about these parts. For sure this war with the French will be over soon, we have the cannon to best them in combat! Cast Iron is the metal of the future I tells thee. But be warned! With thy plan for a board, one day, someone will make a joke so awful that ye be not sure if ye laughed and then groaned, or groaned and then laughed. Either way, you'll groan."

I'd like to take this opportunity to say:

"I told you this day would come"

Hi,
don't know but it was before 2000 that i found Neal's forum. I have been playing "Silent service II" for PC, and "Wolfpack", and "Hunt for Red October", and "Das Boot" then.
When i registered in subsim.com first it was by the name of "Fish", however after some new forum software someone from the Netherlands "stole" this name, so i changed to "Catfish".
Was the first registered name of "Fish" in 98 or 99 ?

B.t.w. i still wonder if i sent this book of the russian sub to Neal, and whether he really received it back then :hmm: . I know i got Fast Attack from him when i could not find it here - man i was happy !

Greetings from Germany,
Catfish

Neal,

Have DW, and SC Installed. And check in daily to read the topics on Sum Sim Forums.

Have had SH3 Installed, but Removed it again.
I just Don't like the long Load time of that Sim. That's just me.

I have e-mail contact with Jim Wolford and he is still around.
I can't remmber the guy who had some of the first SH1 forums.
That was a long time ago.
Regards
Lane

Posted: 1999-05-31 Welcome aboard geetrue2 we don't get too many real submarine saliors here on subsim. Feel free to correct us if we get off the mark, remember no profane talk here, no sea stories that graphically expose the real lives of submarine saliors on the beach, bar scenes, etc We want to be a good outlet for the younger generations to feel comfortable here on subsim, other than that have a good time.

Your welcome to anything in the fridge too ... the key is under the big rock next to the catus plant.
your humble servant from the country province of Texas,
Neal
