Five years later and the site is full of
13 years ago
we are all so old now
It's been fun, eh? I wonder if we'll have five more - I hope so. /lubs you guys
I'm sorry, did someone turn the
I feel like I've been here forever. As in, more than a decade. It's only been flingin' poo for 5 years!?!? It's funny how I'll come across some previous news event, for example, and I'll wonder "how the heck did that thread play out on the filter??" And then I'll realize,
Damn, there was no Monkey goodness back in 1998!
etc., and so on... I loves this place. If the plug ever gets pulled, I will make use of the google caches and set up an alternate version of it. I will pay Nigerian parties hefty sums to act out the roles of all my favorites.
Seriously, 5 years!? *tickles kit's gullet*
We need some sort of retirement plan
Hi dng! Have you been around lately?
Only a little, unfortunately. I ran out of things to post
And all the fat, skinny monkeys! And all the tall, short monkeys! And all the nobody monkeys! And all the somebody monkeys! I never thought I'd need so many monkeys.
Happy Birthday! On a pedantic note, is it not the case that this post is only the first in this particular incarnation? When I joined, grizzled old monkeys told me that there had been a brief previous version on different software. But perhaps they were just taking advantage of my youthful innocence.
I miss the old juju.net url
Wow, ding, user number 44! I didn't realise you were quite so old skool!
Happy birthday, mofi. And thankyou, tracicle. This place rocks.
I wonder if we'll have five more - I hope so.
Five more? Fifty more! *pops champagne, hugs everybody*
Yes, massive thanks to Monkeybashi, without whom we'd all have to harass other people on the internet. She has created for us a safe haven where we can just harass each other. To five more!
Um, can I go now?
Five is the loveliest number that we'll ever do...
How does a person...s say congratulations to themself...s?
Cross posted to the Spider Thread. Since I joined on November 30, 2003: -I got married. - Moved to Prague, Austin, South Dakota and back to Albuquerque. -Have finished a book, which will be published in January. -Had a baby (Bryce, 8 months old, currently pulling books off the shelf.) -Had testicular cancer. - Worked innumerable menial jobs including teaching English to Czechs, selling used books (a couple of times over), editing for Hoovers.com and, currently, tutoring public school kids. My favorite? "Contributing Editor" for Brijit.com, a company whose business model consisted of sending money to people like me for no good reason. Not too surprisingly, they folded. -Posted 167 links and 4404 comments, all of them pure shit.
how will you possibly top that in the next 5 years, Nickyd? *
lubs him some monkeys
* THANK YOU TRACICLE FOR MAKING THIS ALL POSSIBLE!!!!
What's that in monkey years? Seriously...Part of me can't believe it's been five years already and another part of me feels like I've been here forever.
Happy Birfday, MoFi!! I love all youse hairy buggers. Many thanks to Monkeybashi!!
That's five sweet years of lurking...
But what is that in monkey years? Pass the champagne, mothninja! **chug**
I haven't been around lately, but happy birthday MoFi!
Wheee! Happy Birthday!
I haven't been around lately, but congratulations! *salaams to Monkeybashi*
Cockpunch and Pop Tarts for all! At least you guys are keeping your pants on over here. ...whoops!
I've managed to luck a whole hell of a lot. cheers!
I can't believe no one has done this yet...so I will:
Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday to you! You look like a monkey, and you smell like one, too!
Are the male strippers here yet?
You can get less for burglary.
Indeed you have! Welcome to commenting here, please remove your pants. It's a requirement.

That's sort of covered in computing 101 or whatever it was, which made my freshman year of college interesting to say the least.
Yaaay! Happy Birthday to us! *hangs up streamers, balloons and banner with crooked writing*
I like nickdanger's comment. In the last five years I have: ... Hmm, maybe I'm not exciting enough. Okay. * Kidlet #2 has sprung forth. * I am partway through a teaching qualification. * As of yesterday I am gainfully employed in a classroom, with an actual income. * We have paid off a significant chunk of our mortgage and are well on the way to the middle-class suburban rut. * Five years ago I made this website. pleggers, there was, briefly, another iteration of MoFi. I can't even remember what backend it used, but it was PHP-based and had modules. It lasted about a week, though. That first post (titled post #2) was carried over from there to here. (I kind of miss the juju.net.nz URL too, but we still own it, and it's not been touched in 3.5 years judging by the front page. That reminds me that it's about time to pay the domain fee.)
Yeah, I've done stuff in the past five years. Can't really remember what all..... Miss seeing folks like 'flashboy' commenting..... Thanks, Tracicle, for keeping it going! Happy Birthday, Mofi!
Awesomesauce, I remembered my login. Happy birthday, MoFi!
Holy crap, awesome! Happy birthday!
Hi livii!! Hi the_bone!! omg!
Hey, is this thing still here? Five years ago, I had just sold my first online writing to MSNBC.com about the debut of the weekly Opus comic strip. Since then, my health has declined but my location has much improved (from North Hollywood to San Luis Obispo/Pismo Beach) and at least I've outlived Opus. I've gone from being a codependent coward to being able to tell people who are hurting me to go frak themselves; so, obviously, I am living alone and loving it. In another year, I'll celebrate the 10th anniversary of my first blog, "One Swell Foop" and nobody will care, not even me. Happy anniversary to the MonkeyHaus of SchadenFilters. Keep up the good ook ook oook.
It's wendell! He's alive after all! W00t!!
Boney and wendell in one day?!? Kisses all 'round!
We got five years, stuck on my eyes Five years, what a surprise We got five years, my brain hurts a lot Five years, thats all we got We got five years, what a surprise Five years, stuck on my eyes We got five years, my brain hurts a lot Five years, thats all we got We got five years, stuck on my eyes Five years, what a surprise We got five years, my brain hurts a lot Five years, thats all we got We got five years, what a surprise We got five years, stuck on my eyes We got five years, my brain hurts a lot Five years, thats all we got Five years Five years Five years Five years

Happy Birthday, you sick fucks! I, Lord Foetus, approve. On with the show!
Happy Birthday Monkeys.
Five More Years! Five More Years!
Oh, wait, I thought that said five more
Wow, wendell!! Bone!! Bratcat!! And that Lord Foetus guy and nil!!!!
Mon beau Chapeau de tous les Langues! il y a longtemps que je t'aime; jamais je ne t'oublierai!
happy b-day All!!
wow...only five years? Seems like I've been dragging this bookmark around with me since at least the late 90s. Oddly enough, I don't even know for sure if I stumbled upon MoFi in 2003. Sounds about right, though. Wait. Profile says 2005. That can't be right. Really? Goddamn. What has this place done to me? I have to go lie down. Happy B-Day, all...who have all apparently been here much longer than I. At least I can still claim a user # in the low 100 thousands on Slashdot. Practically a charter member there. Sigh.
Five years of tracicle in charge of MoFi? Oh near-perpetual horror - oh, demidecade of tribulation! Will no-one save us from her tyranny of malgovernance? Will the electorate never rise up as one, deal their dictator a fatal blow, and propel through the jubilant crowd, on a seat of interlocking limbs, a new champion of democracy toward MoFi's golden throne? What an anniversary of depression this is - what a moment to recognise the vast waste of opportunity we have accumulated! I would weep salty litres of pure pain-juice, should I care to dwell upon the still-extant puissance of this this monster of ingratitude - this blood-sapping dracula of fascism! One day, monkeyfilter, your soporific clients will awake with tongues utterly parched for justice. On that fateful and glorious day, seek out your saviour - your messiah of deliverance - and you shall find me, waiting a-humble in my grotto. Drink me down then like a draught of holy grace: cast out the cloved-hoofed usurper tracicle, and promote me to my lawful seat of administrative authority. I await your call - without expectation, but with an undiminishing shard of hope, held warm against my patient and forgiving bosom. ... and the extra long-service leave for Hank. Thanks.
Wait -- electorate under a dictator? and then clients? What kind of place
Forget it, he's rolling.
*rolls quidnunc out for some fresh air*
Aw, there he is. *pats*
......it's his own fault my crush is perpetual.
