Five Years of TMN


TMN is five years old today. My thanks to all the contributors (there are far too many to list here) who have helped make this project a success. My thanks also to the readers who keep coming back day after day. And, of course, my thanks to Delta Tao, Joe and all the GMs, who continue to make this all worthwhile.


What eventually became TMN got its start a little over seven years ago as the Fishwrap, a peculiar in-character newsletter that I sent out originally via USENET (in and then later via Yahoo Groups. I've started to move the old Fishwraps into backdated entries here at TMN, so they'll be searchable in the archives. That's going to take some time to complete. I've never sworn off producing new Fishwraps, so there still may be some new ones in the future.


Thanks, everyone.

Nice work :)

Oddly enough i ust unsbbed from Fishwrap as it's dead apart from spam. Be sure to warn us if you use it again :)

Congratulations. Consistantly a top rate site that I have enjoyed visiting the past 5 years. I look to another 5.

Actually, there is absolutely NO spam on the Fishwrap Yahoo list. I have that list locked down; no one but me can send. You can remain subscribed to that with no worries.

Some of the other old CL Yahoo groups have been getting a lot of spam lately, unfortunately. The FMOCR list is getting a lot of spam.

Posted by: Para on May 1, 2007 09:05 AM

Yeah, I was looking at my Yahoo! Groups a couple of weeks ago and saw Fishwrap and was trying to remember if it came first or second. Regardless, it's been quality all along. Especially those Polerand entries!

How about a happy birthday Pay Pal gift to Thoomcare? Thanks a lot for all the work, Para.

Many congrats, Para. :-D You're CL's ambassador and a great one.

By the way, the ads at the top are hilarious, especially Phineas and the Drake.

Thoom! TMN has always been the one place I've checked during my extended stays away from the lands. It's been a great resource these past 5 (7) years.
