Kraproom

Moorpark California. Moorpark backwards is Kraproom, hence www.kraproom.com


Website: 3char.org

3char was an idea concocted by Kenton and Pacman a few weeks ago while on a phone conference with Mage and some others.  Everyone on the conference was saying “3CHAR!” and “I WILL PUNT JOO” in funny voices.  I wish I had it recorded.  I talked with Pacman about buying the domain and he did.  None of the stuff here is real, it’s just funny.  It’s meant to be a spoof of “real” AOL news sites like Observers.net, Inside-AOL.com, OpenAOL.com, etc.  Enjoy.  We should be moving webhosters in the next week or so, so don’t freak out when you get a DNS error.

AOL Sites

Here’s a huge list of AOL Sites from the past, I found a lot these from visiting other affiliates through several sites on archive.org

 

I’ve also pulled a ton of content that was still available on the archive.org website by viewing a lot of these sites.

RIP Monk-E-God aka Tom

image

Monk-E-God, one of the most prominent figures from the AOL add-on programming scene of the late 90′s, has died.

Initially someone emailed me about “Tom” dying and I had no idea who they were talking about. I’m really bad with names so I always feel a little bad when someone from that era emails me. However, I remembered the “moorpark” location they mentioned and a discussion about it at knk4life.com – and that’s when it hit me that they were talking about Monk-E-God. I remember talking with him at what I think was knk’s old forums (and possibly later GPX’s forums, though I can’t remember if he was a member of that forum) and checking out his work at knk’s website.

I wasn’t really close to the guy, but I remember him as being one of the best programmers from those days. He was one of those people who’s reputation preceded them, it’s really sad to hear he’s gone. Thinking about that era brings back a lot of memories. If it wasn’t for that community and those days on AOL, I wouldn’t have become the programmer I am today.
