Once upon a time there was a room. Not a real room, this was not in any house or flat; it was a virtual room. A place in the internet where like minded people could meet and chat about oldies music and any other things that leapt to mind. They were good days. so good in fact, that lifelong friendships were forged that still hold strong today, nearly 15 years later.
But what do you remember about the room? It time to find out. Have fun, and don’t take the results too seriously please 😉

So, you think you're a roomie?
You certainly know your Roomies! Back in the day, one would enter the room to find the same people there all the time. Probably you're one of those. Seriously, your memories of the room are awesome. Well done!!
You are obviously a roomie of old. Unfortunately - and it happens to all of us - the memories tend to fade with time. Your knowledge is still formidable however, well done!!
Part Time Roomie
Your knowledge of the room has a few holes in it. Although you are familiar with most aspects of the room, there's a lot you haven't seen. Probably you have never been in the loft, or taken part in the legendary birthday parties. That's a pity...
Probably you straggled along with others, and were never really at home in the room. Your knowledge seems to point to the fact that you were never really interested, or maybe you discovered the room to late. That would be a pity.
Oldies suck? A/S/L. That's you, a snert obviously...
