|Pretty nice milestone. Grats man!|

That big 15 on top of the page makes me feel really old. I remember hanging out on the old battle.net forums making balance posts complaining to Shlonglor.
Some memorable moments of EN.com.
-Posting your picture online before letting people on the internet know what you looked like was normal.
-Completely shocking everyone with the news that you had a child.
There`s so much more but I can`t recall them all haha. Congrats again, and here`s to many more years of EN.com! Cheers!

|I`ve been around here since like 01 or so. It`s been my homepage ever since then. Yeah I haven`t changed my homepage for nine years because this site is... that.... awesome|

|Congrats Nebu! I still remember all the trouble your War2 page caused Andrews ;)|

|Wow 15 years :) i remember way back in early 2002 2003 always posting on the diablo 2 forums and reading about one of the blizzard forum tyrants (haha kidding) having his own website. so someone threw up a link and i had to see it. Been one of my fav sites ever since. I dont know maybe its the layout, the colors you use but this is a good .....comfy...is that the word? site. Heres hoping for 15 more years|

|I was like 13 years old when I first got Warcraft 2 after playing a demo in an EBGames or something at a mall.|
A month later I found Kali and was playing online. Around the same time as that I found Shlonglor's War2 page. I couldn't get enough of the stories!
I remember trying to smurf even though no one knew who I was. I was 13, after all. I was pretty damn good for a 13 year old though. Now I play SC2 and I suck balls because it's too fast for my old ass.
Anyway, congrats man, and thanks. You've been entertaining me for 15 years.

|I think I've been around (off and on) since the Schlonglor days. I've been a regular visitor since 2000. It's been my homepage since. Keep entertaining us and I'll keep coming back.|

|Same thing as RRP... found it purely by accident because I wanted to see what the web admin for Blizz was like and picked up the link from D2 Forums. I was mostly surprised that Nebu's politics were similar to mine, was roughly my age, and had tons of good news stories. |
EN.com! It's like living vicariously through a Blizzard Employee!

|Congrats on 15 years. I have absolutely no clue why I check this page day after day and year after year...but it feels like I would be missing something if I didn`t. Here`s hoping for 20.|

|Who could have imagined how big Warcraft would become back then. Back then when Warcraft first came out, I was just fascinated making maps in the war2 editor before I had an internet connection to play online. :)|
Here's hoping for another great decade of gaming. I'd like to say thanks for the other stuff as well; things like the awesome driving stories and other write ups from back in the day that I got a kick out of. When I see annoying minivans hogging up the left lane while driving I think of EN :)

|I remember stumbling across Nebu's War2 site while I was in college. I was looking for pro-tips to beat my suite mates at War 2. Damn, we're all getting old.|
December 30th, 2010 @ 12:32AM
|Think how much the internet has changed since you started...|
Hopefully you still have the AOL blocker up that plays 'you are an idiot'. When I was younger, I use to make my friends who had AOL go to your page just for that.

|I remember being aware of Shlongor in the mid-to-late-90`s, and I also remember hearing about you getting a job at Blizz. However, I didn`t really go to the old website.|
However, for a while, I used to follow the IN Clan`s webpage. Sure enough, both expectsomething and expectnothing came up at some point, and I innocently started going to EN. I didn`t realize it was Shlongor for a bit, but I quickly began to enjoy the links and the political debates.
I`ll also come clean: I had my first account (Phystarstk) muted in like 2003/2004, IIRC, for defending Atheism or something. You used to be a lot more liberal with the banhammer. Unable to take it, I created my current account, which I`ve used ever since.
Please don`t re-mute me! It`s been almost 7 years!

|15 years... man I feel old now. I too remember searching for war2 strats back in college and coming across Schlongor's war2 page. Playing war2 on Kali, competing on case's ladder. Good times. In some ways it totally feels like 15 years ago, and in other ways it feels like yesterday. Congrats, Nebu.|

|I must be the same age as hjparcins, because I believe I was also about 13 (edit: did the math, 15) when I bought War2. I usually played dial-up direct connect with my friends, but I did try Kali briefly. I never went to your War2 page. I think I came here from a combination of Diablo 2 and wow beta hype. I just remember someone posting a link to some "GF" guy and figured I should check it out.|
The balloon page was both hilarious and terrifying at the same time. I was afraid you'd be gone for good, because wow was getting too big and they weren't going to let you do your thing.
This is still the only RSS feed on my bar, and it's one of the first things I check every time I get on my computer. I go weeks without checking email, but usually no more than a few days without coming here.
Congratulations on your long and crazy run!

|loved your pages since i first visited.|
one of the greatest things you introduced me to was Subspace (now continuum) - I played that game at the very least at Christmas time on my crappy old PC at my parent's place every year until last year.
keep doing what you're doing nebu, I love how you've been able to maintain a niche of some kind for all these years.

|This site has been great!|
Been coming to the original around '98-'99. Might have even crossed it once earlier looking for War3 strats. Your timing of going 'offline' for a couple of years matched me moving to brazil for my mission, so it couldn't have been better, and I don't feel like I missed a thing.
EN.com has definitely been a staple of my internet existence.
P.S. Everyone donate something!

|Haha, I have been around your site since 1997. I remember that in 2002 when I submitted my "news" about how my visit to a college Los Angeles sucked. I would never expected that you`d put it up on the front page and commented that you felt sorry for me. |

|My favourite memory of EN: Earning Grunt status.|
My worst memory of EN: Almost losing my Grunt status and being cursed with rainbow text for that silly Rick Roll browser prank I pulled. Man that was a close call, I won't make *that* mistake again :)
This site has always been good for a few laughs and some controversial yet memorable discussions. It really blows my mind how many faces have stuck around after all these years. Here's to another 15 years!

|Not sure how long I have been watching this site, but it somehow keeps me interested. Likely because the folks here have some things in common.|
battlereports.com led me here. glad I found it. Keep up the good work.

P.S. Keep Perfect Play alive!

|What`s a guy gotta do to get Grunt status around here?! Still don`t trust me after all this time? Congrats on 15 years sir. |

|Sweet. It looks like I won`t be re-muted. It feels so good to have that one off my back....|

|I recall visiting your War2 site back in 1995.. probably the second or third website I ever visited when I first went online.|
Since then, much of my life has changed, but ironically, this website seems to have changed as well, and rather than growing apart, the "relationship" has grown stronger.
Whereas most other gaming, War2 and SC websites have gone out of commission, this website remains, mostly due to its "everything but gaming" attitude.. and the fact that really this is a site about everything or nothing.
While there are many E/N sites out there now, it is important to recall that this was one of the first, and still greatest.
Cheers Nebu... here's to 15 more years!

|The tips you gave in regards to using farms to wall off in War2 served me well. You seem a lot happier these days which is a good thing. I remember joining your guild Kali Compton when WoW first came out years and years ago. I got kicked out for not sending in enough mageweave to the guild. I forgive you.|
