I used SmoothWall circa late 2001 to share our friends’ dial-up internet access across the 4 computers. It was on an old HP Pentium Pro, I think. I spent some time on the forums, but eventually left (and eventually stopped using SW) because the founder/lead was a massive dick.

I do think it’s funny - especially how everybody manages to stay so serious throughout the whole thing.
I want those 3 minutes of my life back.
