Same here. Though after a while it was like reading his personal diary.

i think he was diagnosed with aids or some other terminal condition and maybe that is why he started to blog rather review DVD's

The forums at www.agn3d.com were the best. I miss that place... most of the members have split off to anandtech and pcabusers.

The only one I didn't do was pointclick.

The other ones though were a lot of fun. Though Jaboom was sometimes sooooo mind numbing.

Remember the big thread on our favourite Free Ride hitch hikers?

Second reel.com, 800.com, and the old Freeride.

One of my personal favorites was Mr. Showbiz. Not necessarily for the web content itself, but for the biannual Box Office Challenge games. It was so much more intense than HSX, because there were big prizes. Plus I actually won the damn thing once and placed second twice, which was huge for me at the time because the games were VERY competitive. My prizes won were a year's worth of Movie Bucks (actually enough for a year and a half PLUS refreshments), a Toshiba 3109 and 5 DVDs (at the time a $350 player), and a PS2 with a few games.

For sheer entertainment value:

And for the bargains:

firstlook.com (when it gave out amazon certs for doing basically nothing) and
reel.com

I was actually a bit annoyed to see that they are still up and running. Not too much free about those clowns now. Ah the wild west days of the dot bomb.

How can we forget the original www.wagerworks.com? The best one for me, and I didn't get to take advantage of it nearly as much as others here did, but it introduced me to my first real taste of Vegas.
