It was actually pretty cool looking, except for the frames of course. I like the flag background image along the top. Those horrid frames bring me right back to, well, 1996.

Here's the best part:
Version 1.0-R
This software is optimized for use with Netscape Navigator 2.0

LOL!

It was so easy back then.

Everything was black and white. Ah the good old days.

Very cool. If you click on the NEWS link on top, my old website will pop up. During that time, I attempted a Drudge knockoff site and JimRob was kind enough to make it his News link in the early days. After a while, I gave up the site because I just didn't have enough time in the day to do it justice.

that must have been Nov Dec 96... Cause by Feb of 97 something similar to what we have now was up and running. I remember trying to post an article without knowing a lick of HTML.. It was a disaster. Maybe 15 regulars and they were mostly prodigy refugees.

But I do remember that look.

I remember posting a vanity once way back when and there weren't even enough people to flame it.

Jim Rob was kind enough to provide a reply to soothe my sore feelings...

This quote should read---mean...

"That this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the constitution(people), by the constitution(people), for the constitution(people), shall not perish from the earth."

The constution is being changed---engineered incrementally by devilcrats!

I say to my wife every so often that it is hard to remember when we didn't have kids and we could just go off wherever we wanted on the spur of the moment. In a way, I can say the same about Free Republic. It's hard to remember coming home at night and looking for something to do. Flipping the channel on TV to see what's on. I haven't known that feeling in five years. Thank God!

"That this nation, under God, shall have a new
birth of freedom, and that government of the
people, by the people, for the people, shall not
perish from the earth."

-- Abraham Lincoln
-- Gettysburg, Nov. 19, 1863.

I like it. The Lincoln-hating RINOs hadn't arrived on the forum yet to disrupt posts with their pro-southern Democrat drivel. Can we have the OLD old forum back too? We'll compensate the RINOs by giving them a nice spot on Ebony.com so they can try to convince blacks to support their frineds at the DemocRAT plantation.
