25 years ago this month I got on Usenet for the first time. AVL was a favorite newsgroup. I still do Usenet, just for alt.obituaries. I see some usernames here from AVL. I was the guy who pointed out that the LD "The Black Hole" looks better when I run my Sony Wega in 16X9 mode...

Still (although only for SPAM) hosted by Google.

Found my first post from May 19, 2001!

Surrounded by Joshua Zyber, Thad Floryan or Kraig. Not a bad crowd!

Web Archive still has the CDJapan final discount sale from that time: http://web.archive.org/web/20010629235043/http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/special/ldsale/

Lots of late releases at JPY 1,500/US$15 at the time.

I used third party providers. First Ultrafeed and then Easynews which I still have today. Easynews goes back to 2003. You can still read Admins posts about the new LDDb dot com from 2007.

I spent a lot of time at alt.video.laserdisc back when I first discovered the format as a teenager! That group was great! I remember finding the site "Moe's Realm" and educating myself on what the best players were. Good times!
