My friend and I stumbled across Inteference one day when we were looking for Elevation tour info. It didn't take long to get hooked!

It *does* seem like KingPin lives in FYM.

Maybe we should start an apartment complex.

It was January 2001, I think I was searching for information for the tour and I stumbled across u2-tours and the 4 little forums on that page.. yes I actually thought there were only 4 forums for a while.

I was searching for info on the new album (before they officially released the title), and I ran across a link to this forum where people were arguing about what the name should be. Bikini, Drive, Titanium Soul...etc...and it was starting to get pretty heated, so I registered and put my 2 cents in .

I was very sick, and I cant afford healthcare so I was forced to go to my local library to use their computers and look up health information. I had never even used a computer before that.
Well, I looked up strictly health info for sometime, but eventually began looking up sites that reflected my other interests.
I remember running into a Wireling at a Popmart show, and hse had asked me if I belonged to Wire. I wasnt yet into computers then, but now that I had access to them I decided to try and find Wire. I did, and began reading and posting.
Chat rooms dont usually work on library computers. If you try to log into any chat room, the comp will freeze. So although I noticed that Wire had a chat feature, i never bothered trying it.
Finally one day i was bored, had finished my work, and decided to just give it a try. Lo and behold, this one worked!!!!! I logged in as MacPhisto one of those first times, and someone remarked "Interesting name..." I now know they said that cuz Elvis already uses that nick sometimes!
Anyway, so i began coming more often under the name Miss MacPhisto, and eventually someone mentioned
I had never been to that site, decided to try it . I eventually registered, and, well, here I am!!!
It took awhile to get used to chat and the forum, of course, and I wish i could read my first posts. I also wish chat was as lively now as it was then!
Ah, memories....
".....People of America - SHUSH-........."

"Well you tell...Bonovista,that i said hello and that my codename is Belleview" - Bono before opening night of Anaheim Elevation concert

Well tonight thank God it's them, instead of you...

^^ Life's a bitch, so i became one ^^

2 years and what did it get me

While i was at uni, i used to read the interference news, back when it was a black page.
I always wanted to find a forum because Wire bugged me and I prefer boards to lists.
I found one at the MDH site where bicyclingfish who used to post here more often, mentioned that interf now had a forum.
It was 2 years ago this week, in July 2000 that I joined up. I also discovered my Wire friend Michael Griffiths posting here and that made me think it must have been a good place.
I sat and watched as rougerum claimed bikini to be the album name but mostly hung out in DOL making friends.

Up until last year when I lost my own Internet account and no longer registered at and did I finally resort to commune among U2 fans in Interference.

I got access to internet only in 1999. First thing I did was searching for news about U2. I got to Interference through a link posted in the now defunct site About one year later I read the announcement in the main page of Interference about the new forum that would open soon. When that happened I read the threads for 1 month before register. I was worried because of my poor english, and because I was not that young, and so on...but then I read a post by NicaMom where she mentioned she was a mom of 3, and that she was born in Nicarágua...suddenly I felt I could participate. And here I am, 2 years after, hooked as ever.

Paul (aka Acrob@t) replied to one of my comments about U2 on the teletext forum on MTV Europe. We got to talk some more and he mentioned something about new ATYCLB songs that were downloadable (spelling? LOL) from ...

I heard the songs, my very first post was i think about the songs too, and i haven't been able to get away ever since.

Big Grin

It was the news that attracted me to here, I didn't know there's feedback in interference until the mp3 of ATYCLB were leaked and there was a link directly to the forums in the news section...

My story

Last October I did a search on U2 chat and it took me to the chat page directly. I never even went to the forum or saw it. One day ABEL told me to go read some thing in ZC and the rest as they would say is history.

Well its all down to the big Uncle Pryck!!!!!

I was one of those left to the last minute at Matt McGees board, even when it turned into a fireball from Hesten fans..........
I turned into a denfender of Matts and fought my little ass off to bite them off.............

Then I had no choice when that board closed down, which to this day, I still find very unfortunate for poor Matt who worked hard keepin it clean....and goin...

All thanks to Mr Pryck

I still say and hold his name on a pedestal for gettin me through here and Calluna esp for breaking me in faster.....
