Back in 09, freshly retired from RuneScape, I used to frequent OT quite a bit. In fact, I used to own and run the unofficial TIF community channel (I've taken down all the vids I made, but the ones others made are still up).

Anywhoo, in August of 09, forestfrolic made a thread where we could share funny chat logs from Omegle (seen here). And on page 16 of that thread, Wongtong let us know about a new site she found which was basically like Omegle, but with video too. It was called head-to-head.org, and there were basically just TIFers on the site at the time, since it was so new. Fun was had, and we were all posting pictures of the fellow TIFers we chatted with. A few days later, the owner of head-to-head.org changed his domain the Chatroulette.com.

As a 10th grader, I hadn't had too much experience with making money on the internet, but I thought the website was gonna be big, and saw this domain switch as a possible way to capitalize on being one of the first people to know of the site. So, I bought some variations of the site (miss-spelled and related).

Fast forward a couple months, and Chatroulette was the new craze. It had its bit on all major news networks, and pretty much anyone who used the internet a lot become fast familiar with the fallice-filled fun that could be had on the site.

The more popular the site got, the more money I made from the traffic to my domains (I parked my domains for adspace, and sold a few to developers who wanted to make forums/niche sites relating to Chatroulette). Soon enough, I was (and continue) making a few hundred dollars a month from people clicking on adspace (like adsense) on my chatroulette domains/sites that I no longer do any maintenance on.

It's just such a random life-changing chain of events that started in the strangest of places, I just thought I'd share (even if a few years late). Also, I'm wondering how Wongtong was one of the first people to hear about head-to-head. :o

Also, I'm not going to share the domain names or further specifics for privacy and security purposes.

Here's Wongtong's post: http://forum.tip.it/...00#entry3966583

Hi!!!

Nice little story, I remember the day you quit. You gave me several mil worth of gp at Edgeville bank, then pretended to give me some 3rd age armor - meanie! :)

Glad to see you're still well and popping back on Tif now and again.

Dude I remember that! head2head had literally 20 users, 16 of which were us. There was that weird purple hat dude that we converted, who later ended up joining TIF for a few weeks and that kid with the really cool glass orb...

Was that seriously 3 years ago? Jesus. Those were the days man...

Yeah, how did Wongtong find out about that?

It's nice to see your name pop up. And I agree with the others, 3 years have flown by.

As others have said, has it really been 3 years since then?

And I miss Wontong. :cry:

OH MY GOD BECKY WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN YOU LOSER I'VE BEEN TELLING PEOPLE YOU WEREN'T DEAD.
We'll sneak out while they sleep
And sail off in the night.
We'll come clean and start over the rest of our lives.
When we're gone, we'll stay gone.
Out of sight, out of mind.
It's not too late,
We have the rest of our lives.

must post due to the amazingness that is wongtong being here. I think her rank should be changed to Eater of Glass. Now I should put a bunch of curse words in here to get the mods' attention....
