Are you able to get his email address and contact him?

I couldn't find that one, but there's a few threads that really put the time into perspective: telling people about this new thing called 'Facebook', moaning about Kazaa being down, celebrating the release of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince.

Can someone show me how to view the old threads, please?

But yeah: I find it amazing to know that it was 2005 when Facebook came out; you know, I was already doing my BA. What. The. Fuck. Now Facebook has become integrated into the fabric of the Matrix.

Sometimes people say to me, "You really should join Facebook". And I never quite know how to say the following without sounding like a stuck up prick: 'Erm, yeah, I actually joined it when it came out, but I've kinda emotionally outgrown it, unlike some people who still think it's cool... *snort snort*'

There are several dates that you can pick from on archive.org; this is just one example.

It's good to have one anyway even if you don't intend to use it. You never know when you might need to contact an old friend/acquaintence (and have no other means to do so).

Just click on some of them. Unfortunately, archive only saved some of them, and there's no way to really tell *which* ones were saved (at least that I've found), so it'll take some trial and error.

I remember you. By which I mean, I remember your username. And nothing else about you.

WELCOME.
