Legends says that in the beginning of times, Spring files were hosted by Storm/Nexus, and that UF only rose after the demise of FU.

After much malpractice and forum and lobby politics, iamacup started uni and couldn't be arsed anymore, citing incredible first year workloads ( you get spoon fed in your first year, or as his facebook showed, bottle fed at bars every night )

Having wound up UF he left without a trace, the person meant to be maintaining it for him complaining he had never gave him the passwords necessary to keep things running.

A while ater he showed up in the lobby after he was found smurfing. In thhe brief moments before moderation were forced to boot him he denied any wrong doing and blamed the other person. It is very likely that he's still in the lobby smurfing in some form. He may even be you ;)

Apologies for the mega bump - googled "iamacup" for the first time in a while - all i can say is thank god MySpace has gone from the top!

Anyway, this is up there now so worth commenting that AF is, as always, completely wrong.

I can confirm that one part of the above quoted statement is true.... :P

Much love

Cup

He disappeared for a long while and freaked everyone out, he was doing work for the spring website as well at the time he left, not much ever came from that though. Basically, I think he got a real job and possibly a girlfriend and wasn't really interested in dreamy open sourced projects any more.

I spoke to him long after his disappearance, he apologized, and said he might be interested in participating again, but nothing ever amounted of it.

"..are you talking to those creepy guys from the internet again? I thought we agreed on not having such friends, but real friends, like for example my friends."
"Yes, honey. But im bored.."
".. and im a cup, we fit well together, you dont want to shatter this?"
"No, honey. Do i want a beer?"
"No, we dont like beer."
"oh, yes.."

Relatioship. Just because a ship can get you everywhere, i doesent mean the transport conditions cant be horrifying. Now silence, and row, row the boat, for the captain has the powar.

The difference being that we're aware of what happened because it happened to us, and we saw it for ourselves. Simply stating it is not true doesn't undo that you left a lot of people in the lurch.

Or that by denying it you're missing out on so many opportunities for hilarity =p
