I was going through some really old pictures earlier, and I came across this gem again. Talk about a flashback to the old days! I can't remember who originally posted it on the old forum, but it still makes me laugh to this day.

I recognize Stealth and Warden, but who are the others?

I can remember the exact instant when I realized that a large part of my life from then on was going to be spent in finding mistakes in my own programs."

If you look at the old, old forum's avatars over different years through Archive.org, you can work most of them out. Just off-hand from my memory, (which is fairly shot at this point thanks to my job), on the far left with the Java attack comment is HDX, and and the two in the upper, right are Lockdown and Warden, (security protocols that Blizzard implemented into Battle.Net 1.0 to prevent bots and unauthorized clients from connecting, even with legitimate CD-keys). Stealth is the light blue baby with his infamous "Eleventy Years" comment. I recognize the other three too, but I just woke up, so I can't for the life of me remember who is who.

Yeah. That's a StarCraft 1 ghost, I think. They had a spell/ability called lockdown.
