I don't think of myself as a veteran tiki centralite because i never posted on the yahoo original, but i was surprise to find I'd first posted on the third page of that thread.

Whether you are a newbie or "veteran", it does not matter.

Look, listen, learn, join-in when you feel the need, laugh, cry, give a pat on the back, a caring hug, a firm shake of the hand, or buy the next round of drinks. This is not not a multi-level marketing company, the armed forces or who has more (or less) of material things or knowledge than another.

This is Ohana.

Weird how 2002 is like ancient history. The internet is aging us fast! But then, you go back 5 more years and the Internet hardly existed to most folks. Who was online in 1997?



As I recall there was a web site called Swanky's Bachelor Pad in 1997. Am I right? And James' Tiki Bar Review Pages. And the Search for the Ultimate Mai Tai site. Things have sure changed, not necessarily for the worse. Sure, there are way more advertising and commercial sites, but the amount of useful and entertaining info these days is staggering, especially with the rise in blogging.

Remember Compuserve, BBs, and listserver forums? modslist!

Me.

I'm not an old-timer here, but once I discovered this place and BOT, etc I dove in head first. No dip of the toe for me. More like headfirst off the high dive. Tiki started moving through my veins like a virus and I couldn't get enough. Still can't really. I get frustrated when there's not so much left to uncover anymore. (Although the Volcano thread proves there might be more lurking out there.) The excitement of that initial discovery is the best. Jealousy is not an admirable thing, but I am admittedly jealous of those who discovered it all before me and were thrilled with each new discovery as it happened. I'm even more jealous of those who enjoyed it all first hand some 40-50 years ago. But then again, a lot of them are dead and I'm not, so maybe I'm not THAT jealous.

But Tiki Central keeps chugging on with its ebb and flow of activity. As soon as you think it's about dried up, a new well springs up somewhere.

Exactly, also not a place to blow into without any sensitivity. It's not a business first, it's a culture first. It IS Ohana, and it IS Aloha. Shameless capitalism and blatant self-promotion have no place here.

Hey JT, isn't that place called Tiki Marketplace?Capitalism is about free markets, and Tiki Marketplace is a free marketplace, so no reason for any shame at all! Unless someone's trying to huckster some cell phones.

Capitalism is fine, shameless capitalism is not. There is a difference.

GatorRob, the Volcano thread is exactly why TC is important. If we get every known place its own thread here, when the grand child comes to own the pile of stuff from the old tiki bar, and they go to the net and type it in, they will find us and start sharing. Even if they just say they want to sell it all off. They come here. We really need to be putting everything here and drawing all inquiries to the people that care. Without TC, the Volcano info would have been lost.

In 1996 I was a Junior in Computer Science in a networking class and the professor asked who had been on the Internet. One guy raised his hand. Mosaic...

Hukilau would not have existed without the Internet and TC. We have the chance to make a lot more of what we have too.

I guess I'm a veteran. I always thought I was more of an inveterate.

Kinda funny how this post has brought out some folks we haven't heard from in a while.
It doesn't seem like it's been that long that TC has been bringing people together for the love of Tiki but when you look back, a helluva' lot has been crammed in around here. All of the events and the new ones that keep evolving. All of the friends who have come and gone... and come back again.
I think that is probably the most interesting thing... the people we've stopped hearing from on TC. Where did they go? Have they moved on from TIki alltogether? or just lost the time to post here?
Anyway, like they say, "The more things change, the more they stay the same."
Aloha,

I sure do miss seeing some of those names that used to be so prevalent.
