I have been a frequent visitor to javaranch for the past year or so .Even though I haven�t actively posted in the forums , I find it a great place to learn and share information . I came across this URL accidentally , which has links to how most of the websites looked in yesteryears , and this is how far javaranch has come since Dec06 , 1998 , when the note on the main page said � �"J A V A R A N C H even the sheep write code ,We're still paintin' the lower 40 fence ,y'all come back in a few weeks " to what is today -

LOL - that was GREAT! They even have some WAY OLD conversations saved that I think we have lost since then.

When using the way back machine, I always expect to run into Mr. Peabody and his boy Sherman.
There are some innacuracies: I made the moose head in 2000. Kathy had a fat moose before then.

Great Site! Feels so good to read the HOT JDK 1.1.2 release news!

Hmmm in '97, I was coding Foxpro and they I have heard something like 'Applets' but had no idea what the fuzz was all about.

I especially like the "Write to the Webmooseter at: moose@javaranch.com"
When did we lose a gem like Webmooseter?


Wait a minute, I'm trying to think of something clever to say...<p>Joel

Oh, I dunno if "webmooseter" was so much lost in the mists and dropped when it was foggy and no one could Paul abandon it.
I mean, c'mon, webmooseter? Sounds like something the high school math club would think up.

Aw, c'mon, Webmooseter is a great, goofy, play on words. It's funny.

So does that mean the moderators were known as mooseketeers?

I think "webmooster" should make a comeback. I'm just not sure where.

I giggle every time I read it!
Webmooster (*giggle*) and the Mooseketeers! Sounds like a garage band from the 50's!
Too bad J2ME is already taken (Java2 Moose Edition)...
