Happy Birthday Vogons!

This calls for terrible poetry

20 years have passed,
and I'm glad I coud be assed,
to join here eventually,
after googling you incessantly.
many years without posting.
so I am glad you are hosting.
all the vulminous retro knowledge,
and like goldilocks final bowl of porridge
It's just right.

Unicorn herding operations are proceeding, but all the totes of hens teeth and barrels of rocking horse poop give them plenty of hiding spots.

VOGONS is now officially retro I guess? 😁

It is gratifying for me to see how long and how well VOGONS has remained relevant, especially given how many online community spaces have been absorbed by the big corporate social networking sites. Happy anniversary to you all, and thank you to the whole community for keeping this space alive and well.

Yes, it’s my fault.

But still can't drink booze in some countries.

🤣 you cannot legally buy tobacco products here until 21 also (which I think is stupid BTW)...

Hate posting a reply and then have to edit it because it made no sense 😁 First computer was an IBM 3270 workstation with CGA monitor.

Long life, health and prosperity to Vogons, it members, mods and the people who administer it and pay to keep it hosted and running (if ever there's a need for us members to chip in, please do ask).

Here's to the next 20 years of old and new (re)discoveries, problems, solutions, hare-brained schemes, crazy ideas, strokes of genius and, above all, to fun and learning in an atmosphere of respect and sharing .

Humanity can achieve infinitely more if we, as individuals, start by focusing on what we have in common rather than on what divides us (sorry for likely misquoting whoever said something resembling that).

P.S. I started lurking here around 2003 or 2004. It just took me 10-ish years to register and a few more to actually start actively participating . In hindsight, I should have joined much earlier .

The 20th Anniversary of Vogons is here.

It is a cool project and it is a great achievement it is still so much alive, considered how many other forums died out..

Happy Birthday Vogons! There's no other place like this one, what an amazing collection of information and resources! I noticed I was often better off making searches with "site:vogons.org" than letting search engines do their job 😁

I'll also be 40 next month...damned
