do you remember NYE 1999/2000?

In case you dont let me remind you. At the stroke of midnight planes were going to fall from the sky, computer systems were foing to crash to a halt and MickeyHouse was saying "no more threads until the new year".

So the last one of those 3 may have been impossible because the dibb may not have existed then.

So what do you remember about that new years eve?

I remember sitting outside a very good friends house drinking far too many bacardi breezes (does anyone remember the watermelon flavour?) And being surround by the lights and sounds of fireworks being set of for miles around.

So then dibbers - I suspect most of you are old enough to have been around for that celebration so what are your memories ?

For (probably) the last time in 2019 ...join in

Happy new year everyone

I'd just been made redundant so we booked to fly to Canada for a skiing holiday on 1 Jan 😂😂.

So it was a quiet night in for us as we left at 7 for the airport!

I was at a party but just out of hospital after an operation so no alcohol or dancing and I was the designated driver for the night.

Not a great deal due to alcohol but I remember that was the start of crazy fireworks on New Years Eve.
My youngest currently thinks its amazing that we are starting a new decade ( he was 5 at the last one )

Was DJing for five times my normal rate ☺️

New Years Day whilst everybody else was nursing a hangover I was out buying a new wide screen TV.

Gave up DJing couple of years later and have hated NYE ever since (see traditions thread)

Yes remember it well especially the bit about planes falling out of the sky. I was working at Faslane at the time and there were concerns as to what would happen to our computer systems at midnight. I remember phoning our duty officer just to check that everything was OK. Thankfully it was!

We went to London. Had a hip flask that we shared. Couldnt get a drink or go to the toilet anywhere as it was so busy. Was definitely sober at midnight. We watched the fireworks, then queues for hours to get a tube which then broke down. Finally got back to our friends uncles place. Dont know where the uncle was but we never saw him. His alarm was set and kept going off at 6 and we couldnt work out how to turn it off!🙈 We then drove all the way back home. As much as we did not have a great night, it was an adventure. I had a few adventures with that particular friend. Sadly, we grew apart as we got older and Ive not seen him in about 12 years. Which is a shame.
