It was back in '98 and I was exploring this new discovery of the Internet. Back then I'd explore most everywhere and become lost for hours. Probably did a search and the results landed me on the first forum..which was a weird place.
Some years later, author Ed McBain was responsible for bringing me here. Again, it was an info search and a2k popped up and I signed on.
Never knew of abuzz until mentions of it here.
