    No, this isn't a thread about reminiscence. Nor is it just for oldbies. It *is* a place where anyone can come in and post and take a rest from whatever ails ya!

    This thread is also a vast homage to old friends long gone, filled with symbols of people who have placed their distinctive stamp upon these insane, imaginative threads, a way for me to honor their memory, and their loyalty.

    A brief tour:

    *Points to wraparound counter* That's the ModalNodesFreak Center. ;-)

    *walks over to mic-stand in the corner* This is the Nien Nunb Nuts/Kessel Runner Performance Space. The province of much song and merriment.

    *points to row of statues lining back of Cafe* That's the Gonk Knight Hall of Fame. See the guardians of carnage, destruction, and debauchery who protected this fair forum before half of them were promoted to Admins or left for parts unknown. They need no other introduction other than their legendary names: ObiWannaCracker, Pyrus, BoB, Paul/Chewbacco, Captain Antilles, YODA The All-Powerful, TK-421, emilsson, Paradox, stinrab, [Red3], Ishi Tib, Tank, MON CAL WARRIOR, Darth Fatuous, and the incomparable Irish Jedi.

    *points to a wall of relics* There's a vial of swampland from the Dance Hall of Absurdity; an old Mark II nuclear espresso from the Lounge of Insanity!!!!; a non-operational Squeeky2000 droid; Zephir's BlasTech laser pistol; a photo of SoaH and SotS bartending at the Lounge of CaffeiNATION!!!; Old Republic Royalty's tequila shot glass; and my cousin, Son of General Solo, perfectly preserved in carbonite. ;-)

    Anyway, I'll let you peruse the Darth Sushi Hall of Mirrors, Maeve_Antilles prankster corner, KiranaTi caffeination chair, Zas performance art space, Scotch_frisky poetry kiosk, and J-guy study hall all by yourself. A bar stool is, of course, reserved for you to chat with me ... the once and future Nite Owl. :)

    Welcomes, of course, go to my current regs: em, Modal, Zas, Major Mannon, sorcha, bright sith, Commander Wedge Antilles, JediEowyn, and Jeremyguy; and any new folk who'd like to come by and add to this last remnant of a more ... civilized age. ;-)

    Aha! Traveling incognito, I see, W-W.

    Welcome, Angelic, that's okay, I trip over everything around here, :)

    Hey, Modal-man, the only cure I got is a ball-peen hammer and black coffee. Heard about your hockey exploits, well done, my Canadian friend, well done!

    I was there at the dawn of the third age of the JC...2 years after the Gonk wars
    The Cafe project was a dream given form. Its goal, to prevent fatigue by providing a place where posters could wind down peacefully. Its a port of call, a restroom, a bar, a tapcaf, karaoke stand....home away from home for posters, lurkers and miscreants. Slackers and Bashers wrapped in 2 millions tons of bamboo....a bamboo roof, a bamboo floor, its even got a bamboo door....a shining beacon, all alone in the Nite Owl. It can be a dangerous place, but it's our last best hope for caffeine. The year is 2000, the name of the place, the Golden Age Cafe

    I've been at the JC for over a year and 6 months, just not under this name. I remember the Gonk and HoJo War Threads though. I saw them die out unfortunately also. :(


    Do I count?
