Those were good days. Just enough people so that there was always a game of Doom or Descent to be had, but also few enough so that we all knew each other from the BBS or in person. Worked reasonably well too, though every player got the frame rate of whoever had the slowest computer.
Much better than DWANGO.
edit: Oh, and in the off chance, anyone from DoomHQ, The Netherworld or AlterEgo in the DC area? Meet me in (t)elechat channel #1911.
