Atticus Old School Tech.


This was made in 2021. and yes I am on AIM "Atticus" . When it was brand new and I was a much younger Old man. I promise I will update this page often.

 Showing you the world of old tech that still exists and we all should use.


BBS are back as of today there are Around 900 Online. Bring Back the old days.

IRC has never left and is still popular Use the Clients. Also Note some BBS are can do IRC.

AIM,Yahoo,ICQ,Yahoo, and of course WIM instant messaging services are slowly being rebuilt.

RSS feed is what you need to use as a notification not IG,Not FB, Not Twitter not Redit.

Learn HTML, you can make it as fancy or as simple as you wish.


What I miss the most about traditional chatrooms, No Gifs, ASCII art I dont include but was at least creative.

Remember those chat room Clubs, I miss those, You would have 6 to 12 people basicly moderating the content of a chat.

And you would see screen names like "X1xThingyx1X" and they would have their own website, of course one or two of them would have access to the proggies, Sometimes but not always they have WAREZ connections. They would get those punters that annoyed the crap out of the room. Or Room breakersso you could break into a full room when some one left otherwise it was who could click the mouse the fastest. On AOL  that was not too much of a problem until after 2007 since most rooms doubled. The most I ever  saw was i think 11 Town Hall Chats.

Another thing I miss about chat Rooms is that if I was sick or had insomnia at 3 AM in the morning  , I could talk to 20 other people who had the exact same problem.

And onlike social media sites or social Dating aps. We actually did know eachother, We would hang around and talk to each other everyday for hours and hours.And we would have disagrements and fights, and When we where on eachothers  Buddys list, that means we were actual friends. Unlike social media who pretty much gives you a list and tells you, This is who you should like. Even if they don't seem interesting. And Conversations are limited now. I am sorry using the comments section of an article or website to have a conversation with is idiotic. it is a Comment Section not a Lets Chat.

I am a writer and I found out writers prefer to chat and bounce ideas off  eachother, On america online before they were actually shut down I was hanging out. Even in IRC and on AIM i know at least two other writers. Other then bouncing ideas off eachother they talk about how to market. Especially going around the Big Boys. We need to learn those skills from the old  days.
