I dunno, I thought I'd try a little something different here.

The site itself has almost been here for a solid decade, though I know the name AT itself started a little bit before. When you think about it, a ton of stuff has happened in that time period, even notable things we can't probably remember, unless a certain keyword were to spark a memory.

So 2010 gets nearer, personally a lot of events have happened to me, but it's not about personal achievements, or failures here, it's about the group as a whole. What were some memorable things that happened to you when you had AT flying over your head? It could be anything from an epic moment you and someone else had on some game, to a stupid photoshop, or random moments on the podcast that suddenly had us keeling over in laughter.

And I mean anything, don't be afraid to offend someone. They're probably LONG gone/banned, whatever, ups and downs, it's all worthy talk. Just any little highlights you had here, with the other fellows, and so on. I encourage our silly photoshops to, probably unearth something long lost!

My two most memorable moments were that Podcast showdown, where me and Breaker argued the ending to The Dark Knight, and Eco Warrior in FFXI. They always stick out in my memory. ;)

That of course doesn't count vacations which include Naba getting married and California!

There's so many good and bad moments, I don't know where to start. Maybe just a short list to start. I'll possibly add more later.

Meeting IVI for the first time, and also AT_Tenebrous on Puck 9 in a PSOW team. We played all night and exchanged cards in the lobby.
Tracking down and getting everyone back together again after the demise of V2, and prior to the launch of PSOGC.
A couple epic lobby meetings, with C-Mode tournaments. Forever Zero and I rocked the 2 person C1 TA.
Monster Hunter had some of the best teamwork games I have ever been in.
AT Radio.
AIM chatrooms and official meetings.
"In game" guild inductions and promotions.
The excitement and anticipation in the months before FFXI.
The growth and eventual mushroom cloud of the FFXI linkshell: This is almost equally good and bad.
PSU Week, and the week long 24/7 AIM chatroom.

I'll add some bad memories later.

Here's a few:

The Hobo Cup, The Phantasy Star Online: Episode III tournament AC and I organized, was pretty awesome. It was fairly random and quite a few dropped but in the end, it came out to be very successful.

My first experience with FFXI and how horrible it was. I log on for at least a week and didn't accomplish anything. Only AC came to help me out but only to get me killed by a damn bee. I still have the game laying around here somewhere...

The Monster Hunter stuff was all good. I just wished the servers were up a bit longer. I guess we'll wait for the Wii version.

I wanted to mention some of the earliest members of AT who many here will not remember. These people were a part of the original Dreamcast crew.

ZeroRubius
CrestarX
Kabuki64 (Galactia?)
Gradius
Phar0h
CrazyFX
Diaz
Wolvie
Oneida

Also of note are some other PSO "clans" from back then.
Dark Horse Society(DHS)
Maiden Circuit
Team Katana
Ganja UK

I recall a bit of a run in with Maiden Circuit when DarkEpyon joined AT. The rule back then was that to join AT, you were not allowed to be a member of another guild, so I went with DE to speak to the head of Maiden Circuit to facilitate his release. Suffice to say, they were not happy that he was officially leaving.

I also remember when Dreamstation.cc claimed Anteres 7, which Voodoomoose also inhabited. I think this time period was also when a certain top heavy HUnewearl begin to join AT games and lobby chat.

Speaking of "bad" times, maybe you can bring back some of those topics for us to view lol.

Here's some Hobo Cup topics:

I was considering that, maybe add a sub forum to Ops.

I believe it was when we still had a WoW forum. I forgot what the topic was about though. There's also a topic in relation to his banning in Ops lol.

I unfortunately was on the sidelines for a majority of things. Lot of things boil down to just amusing personal moments when I think about it.

Playing TMNT with Dive and Donkey on MAME, and ending up using like 5000 imaginary quarters to beat it.

When AT Radio was new, I remember Dive skipping work or something, and we ended up just playing music all morning. That was just too fun.

Being nervous I'd actually be rejected for membership, haha. I think I was drunk or something during the PSO meeting where I'd be evaluated or something.

Using the Dreamcast to browse here, most of my old posts have that terrible margin where everything is smooshed to the left side, like a bad haiku. Whatever forum skin we had going on them, I'd like to see again, it'd be a total nostalgia trip.

I actually do remember playing with Dive and Woe at one time on Dreamcast, I was a complete stranger though, and had no idea what AT was. We were doing Caves, and being envious of Dives hax weapons. I didn't get to know them and AT till way later on GC though. I'm proof positive I have their GC's still on my character, which is still intact.

Bringing Donkey here from the old Arcade forum. Pretty sure that's how a good portion of us ended up here actually.

I can definitely think of more later, but like I said, I didn't get to participate in most of the games everyone here played.
