On the first day, there was the most powerful and worshipped Pentium II,with its lackeys Voodoo2 and Riva TNT2.....

On the second day, there was Interweb in all its various forms, but mainly the loathsome and laggy 56k modem....

Then came the goodness that was DSL and Unreal Tournament, and a funny little place called JetStreamGames......

All the Kiwi's (and the odd Aussie) needed a place to gather, to discuss their awesomeness, and occasionally their n00biness... 

Henceforth, unto the Interweb was spawned the JSG forums,  in all its tacky colours and layout, ugly on the eye's it may have been, but it was awesome, and new.... and all who gazed upon it saw that it was good....

And so the rabble congregated, a community was formed.... Revolving around Unreal or UT'99 as it became known....

The community evolved and grew, and a great many people began to start worshiping at the Altar of the most great and all powerful ADSL...

And high pings were smited, wherever the great and terrible demon "Telecomnus" did upgrade its exchanges......

No more were the oppressed and down trodden rabble held at the mercy of the foul and ungodly 56k modems, never again to be smacked down repeatedly by the LPB's @ Paradise.net in Wellington...

Harshest was the struggle in the early days against the likes of Callisto, playing on her 5 ping from within the Paradise.net building...

Many were the defeats and smack downs meted out by the original Low Ping Bastard (Bi-aatch as the case was!)...

The interweb did thus evolve, the game and community grew, weird ideas started to surface, the n00b rabble did hence forth gather themselves into groups under petty chiefs and warlords... and they did make great and terrible war upon themselves in the name of their Vanity and Pride!

A Great many were the war's and uncountable were the dead or respawned....

Powerful Clans emerged, new and exciting day's of glory beckoned.... A bold new world was being formed!

Fearsome Clans and War Leaders from the early days of clan kind like the mighty  [CS] {ZeN} .COM, [iRD], [AtM] to name but a few.... Lead by fearless war chiefs with fearsome and inspiring names like Suicyco, Tyrant, Subside, Hammer  and the most evil DrWhupass,

And thus the clan's did make war upon themselves.... And the petty struggles of clan kind did play out on Facing Worlds, NIven, Hydro and the many other battlefields of the evil and vast Liandri Corp....

Just when all seemed well, and that the petty chiefs and their Clans were unstoppable, the great Demon Hellspawn Telecomnus did make plans to destroy the petty rabble mankind had formed...

Thus came the Great Cataclysm, The great devil spawn "Telecomnus", true demon from the lowest planes of Hell, did smite down the JSG forums, in the prime of their infancy.... And many feared all was lost unto the Ether(net).....

But all was not lost....

Out of the great wasteland's of Cyberspace, as foretold in the beginning, came the Mesiah Doogie.....and he did declare unto the rabble...

"OMG WTF this is freaking gay....Let us resurrect the goodness that was JSG....", and thus he began the great exodus from the  holy lands that were the JSG forums....before the utter destruction of the promised land at the hand's of the foul demon Telecomnus

Long hours did Doogie toil, and much blood was spilled on the Altar of the almighty and powerful VBulletin Board, from which sprang a new and powerful Demi-God, and low and behold, a new forum was spawned unto the Ether(net)....

And the Clan's and rabble alike did gaze upon this newly formed Promised Land, and they did claim unto the interweb, that it was good, and semi pure, definitely not virginal, and that someone badly needed to clean the dunny....

And from the fiery death and ashes of the Holy JSG, did rise the Phoenix..... and unto the world the holy land was reborn...

This new found Holy Land and great savior of the petty clans and warchiefs was but without a name...

And thus, when some great and wise prophet did visit the Mesiah Doogie's Flat, they did declare unto the rabble, that the Flat 'twas Skanky, and dirty, and badly needed a good disinfectant.....and thus the Skankyflat was born unto the ether(net)....

and all who gazed upon its greatness did sign up, and register on the forums, and the community did live again, and thrive!
