the most epic board on the internets!! - /y2k/

File: 5ca15e114a98e98⋯.gif (Spoiler Image, 185.01 KB, 90x90, 1:1, crashdance.gif)


Re-writing this since I removed a lot of the word filters that messed with the original post. Welcome to /y2k/! This is a board for talking about anything and everything from the 2000's, especially Internet culture from the time.


1. Remember the 8chan global rule - any illegal content will be removed either by me or the global admins.

2. This is a SFW board. NSFW content, spoilered or not, will be removed.

3. No modern slang; it's annoying to other users and will just be removed provided it isn't already filtered.

4. No spamming or flooding the board.

5. Don't post personal information about anyone but yourself.

6. Don't send false reports, or "over-report" over 9000 posts.

7. No political discussion. Images about political events from the time are moar or less k, but meaningless bickering over Bush and 9/11 will result in a ban.

8. Have fun!

I have plenty moar old vidya ads, but they're all .mp4's because I'm retarded and can't encode .webms for shit. And of course I don't know if any of them can top that Metroid ad.

I've had this song in my memory since the 2000's. I've never known its name. It goes something like this:


Does anyone know this song??



Excellent, my dude. thx for the effort!

>one for popular music during the era, and another for music that was moar popular on the internet

That could work yeah


>iPod Shuffle G2

Best fucking version


Rings a distant bell but I have no idea



To me that sounds like Coldplay - Clocks

It would make sense since it was released in 2002, but other than that I'm not sure I'm sorry.

Huh. You know I was born in 2005, and well, for some reason I have this huge nostolgia for the grungy early 2000's theme that was going on them. Think of the music video of Gorillaz's song "Clint Eastwood"

plz no ban mods

Like you know, that kinda mature yet not mature Teenager type thing. You know, skating game son the PS2. It's weird.



yeah, i remember that grungy feel of THPS on teh XBOX HUEG. that was nice.

liek anon in another thread said, in about ten or twenty years we might see a retro comeback of that.





I know exactly wat you're talking about. It's funny you mention the Gorillaz, because Jamie Hewlett and over 9000 other artists like him from the time helped popularize that thick-outline, very rooted in graffiti style of cartooning that appeared constantly. I wouldn't call it a "grunge" style per se, but it was obviously very connected to alternative music styles popular with teenagers of the 2000's (emo, pop-punk, and to some extent nu-metal). It's one of my personal favorite styles of drawing, yet one I can never seem to master due to the specifics of it.

I went to Carnegie Melon from 1998 to 2002 and I wish I could see the video quality from the shit we would share on the network. The grunge for me is the shitty monitors and low video quality. o and windows being a piece of shit. And winamp.

90's was better. I thaink teh world secretly ended at y2k and thais is all a horrible dream we're forced to relive every single day. Like I was going to talk about floppy disks.. But that's technically not even 2000s.. Point being nothaing good rly came out of teh 2000s… teh only thaing I can say that was good about teh 2000s was enjoying teh remaining spoils of teh 90s.. Thais is starting to sound depressing.

Somebody throw me an mp4 with a happy/nostalgic tune.

I remember using Windows XP Home Edition at some point.. Using 64MB ATI graphaics card. That was fun… Playing online games back tehn.. People hacking tehm… Raging at tehm threatening to kill tehair parents.. seemed to be moar enjoyable than teh games available today… Can't tell if it's just nostalgia or legit preference/enjoyment… Or teh sour grapes of growing up a 1337tle bit. Sometimes I wonder if I'm just borderline autistic/barely normal.

I had a prebuilt from some company called ABS (Pretty sure they're bankrupt now, can't find them anywhere except some old wayback archives) around 2003, and it was a fucking beast. Windows XP Pro with a Pentium 4, Radeon 9800 Pro, 2GB DDR2 RAM, two CD/DVD Drives, two HDDs (I think), Creative Audigy 2 sound card, TV tuner, joystick port, and FireWire card (those last two we never used, lul), as well as blue LED fans and a window on the side that truly made it look like a machine from another dimension. I remember just staring into the side of it completely mesmerized. Since I'm a zoomerfag, I didn't have the same online experiences that the rest of you probably did. I would mostly play flash games and watch stickman videos and sparta remixes on early YouTube. Loved Nitrome. Had that up until 2009 or so, then it started to fall behind to the modern age and became plagued with viruses. Stopped using it when we couldn't upgrade it to Windows 7 because of the video card. Then we got a shitty Acer prebuilt that died within two years. I still have most (if not all) of the original parts, including the Radeon, which is now used in a Win98 machine I keep at my parents house when I have nothing to do.


2000s were good primarily due to the influence of the Matrix and Newgrounds.

Oh wow, that's awesome. Make sure you keep hold of your old PC and look after it!

I had a Dell Latitude D-series my dad brought back from teh office, and that thing used to run Runescape like a dream. I see old machines as windows to teh past, especially when you have a lot of memories associated with a particular device. Mine broke during a move in 2011 and teh past few months I've been considering buying another one to try and recreate teh old days.


File: 9d1cd512341ad95⋯.jpg (14.81 KB, 480x360, 4:3, rip.jpg)


wat sucks about having an XP PC nowadays iz that since it became obsolete in 2014 iz that h4xx0rs can infect it easily now and teh fact that most of post-2014 software / hardware izn't supported by XP machines.



Jesus fucking christ tehse filters



Damn. I didn't even think of teh security izsues of having modern software on it, but tehn again I'd just want to recreate my old system and use it for work/small projects. Microsoft Office 2003 was by far teh best version, none of that (((subscription))) rubbish or cluttered UI or cloud shit that never works properly like in later versions.

I rly wish this board would get moar traffic, it has so much potential

Anybody else wonder where the people behind abandoned profiles in 2000s websites go?


Probably moved on with their lives, good job, wife, kids.

Or they end up like us, progressively heading further into the depths of the internet to escape the normals.

or they off themselves



Yeah it's quite sad reading though forum posts from 2003, especially when profiles tend to say "Last Online: September 2005". Where the hell did they disappear to?


They could be on this very site… this very board…
