I have reconnected with a friend recently whom I met in my “chatting” days, ten and more years ago. I was very new to using the computer as social media, and friends directed me to a program called “ICQ.” You could say that this was a fore-runner of Facebook. You were assigned a number, and you could share it with friends if you wanted to converse electronically.
Today, as I was working in the office, going through boxes of STUFF, I came across a notebook with information including ICQ numbers and nicknames. So, for QT, here’s a list of names that should be a blast from the past!
Ghoster, Angie, Cali, Janie, Night Stryke, BuDmaNN, Buck, FireNIce, 6 pack, birdie, Brown Eyes, Contessa, cookie monster, blackadder, Darlene, DeSade, DocH, Dr. Morpheus, Highlander, TickleMeErnie, Fantasy, Fox, hayla, Huckfinn, JeanieUK, Jet, Lady Jade, Lady Gweniver, LaLady, Lexi, Lynda, Clark Kent, Male, Me2, Mountain Man, Damm, niner9r, Ray, Ruby, Rudder, Skydyvr, son, StrawberryNcream, Stretch, Sugar, suzieq, Sylvie, tessa,Tex20, TIgress, WildCat, Rachel, and DorieNRod.
I have Ghoster, Buck, Fox and his wife, Allison, Jet, suzieq, tessa and Tex20 on Facebook. I believe at least one of our friends on this list has passed away, perhaps more. It’s been so long since I talked to anyone on ICQ that I don’t know if it even exists any longer.
QT, I hope these names brought you some pleasant memories.
