Nutcan Family Tree.

Just out of curiosity - if you would be willing. I would be interested to know the origins of the Nutcan.com community. As I assume that membership still remains at a rate you can manage, I'll bet there is story somewhere. I'll also assume that the story is rather amusing and as always up for plenty of debate. Let the Nutcan family tree sprout.

I met Jeremy in highschool spanish class. He was one of my first friends after moving to EC. Met Jon through he and this other guy Trevor.

Originally met Sarah when I met her friend Wendy. Whole lot of whackiness ensued.

In it's 6ish years of existance the nutcan userbase has swelled to what can only be called a "massive" 40 users.

The Founding Fathers

Jeremy - Me
Matt - I met because he's Jon's brother
Jon - I assume we met at school, I don't remember how we started hanging out outside of school. He was best man at my wedding many years later.
Sarah - It's a long drama filled story. We're married now.

The Base

Scott - Jon's friend, I think Jon must have told him about the site at some point. We like to get in long, pointless, debates with no hope of resulution regarding every bit of over-analyzed minutia about the Packers and Vikings.

Alex - Though I knew of Alex in high school (he went to a different school and dated one of our friends) we didn't become friends until college. We were partners in our CS lab and still to this day are fairly certain we had no idea how to do anything. He was in the Wedding along with Jon, which was roughly the 700th wedding he stood up in. Without him it's just "aweso."

The Early Adopters
Micah - We were friends in high school, though I can't remember any specific details on how we met, or why we started hanging out.

Bret - College friend, him, Alex, and I would be partners any time we were allowed to be in groups larger than 2, which was most of the time.

The Nutcan Era
Cory - I worked with him at Midwest Manufacturing, I've since lost contact.
Josh - Ditto
Tony - My cousin.

Wendy - 2007-07-09 17:09:36 - We met her online during high school, along with her bestest buddy Sarah. (Before every online meeting involved Chris Hanson.) I forget exactly how that story played out. I think the entire earth may have hung in the balance.
Radoslav's#1Fan - 2007-08-06 10:36:58 - Trevor and I grew up a few houses apart and went to many years of schooling together.

Jeremy has my story pretty much right. Jon told me about the site at some point (I really can't remember exactly how it happened.) I also very much disliked Jeremy at first simply because he never said anything good about Brett Favre. Also, The Packers were still one of the good teams in the league at the time (and the Vikings were near the bottom), and I think that just lead to some bitter exchanges. Once both teams started to suck, we worked things out I guess.

For the first several months of me visiting NutCan, I think I was the only one other than the 4 staffers that made any comments on anything. Basically, I take credit for keeping this site alive:)

Brett Favre rules. It is impossible to say anything bad about the subject. I can see where your frustration would come from.

I don't know if I would indeed "never say anything good." Most of the time I was kidding, playing devils advocate, or pointing out that he is not, in fact, the second coming of Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Edit: Also, it kind of bums me out you actually didn't like me.

Yes, you worked there by yourself first, I think. Then me, then andy, and I don't think Micah lasted too long if he even started, because then he worked at Mega. You don't remember because you were always thinking about the ladies and drama. You probably don't remember more than being in Andy's van either.

"internet"? What happened to the age of the intertubes and the age of the interwebs? Someone needs to make a timeline of the inter progression.

I would add to the story that I probably found out about the site when we were supposed to be doing a group assignment but Jeremy was working on this instead.

Well I did remember the stuff, then I doubted myself because I could have just dreamed you and Micah working there because I didn't have any specific memories of all of us being there on the job. I have a bunch of us all hanging out there, I just can't specifically picture you or Micah working there.

I do remember being convinced to quit there one day complete with bridge burning letter that may or may not have been completely written by Micah.

My dad was pissed because I could never use them as a reference anymore. I don't know if that's just something parents say, or if "back in the day" you really did use your boss at BK to get you a job at the grocery store, eventually culminating in their total good will getting you into your career gig. Cause let me tell you kids out there, no one gives two craps about what you did at BK when you were 15. Even if they called the person isn't going to remember you because all your bosses left 6 years ago. Finally, even if on the rare occation they do remember you thanks to all the presidents in defamation law suits most places have a policy that they can only confirm you worked there and say nothing else about you.

That's a masterstroke of an idea. It would be awfully hard to chart. I think I obsessive compulsively checked the website any break we took, I don't think I ever worked on it in any major way.

Remember one of our last times together working on some encryption thing and we kept running the program out of available memory? We would increase the key size, it would break, we would debug for 2 hours, figure out it was just out of memory, increase the limit, celebrate our victory increase the key size, and repeat, never learning our lesson?

I think I called Sarah at like 8pm saying we were almost done, then we left at like 6 am.

Do you mean the BK Broiler/Chicken Whopper/Whatever they are calling it these days or the "premium type" bredded, or are you talking about the long/skinny chicken sandwich that's a big oval? Because if it's the latter it would be sort of funny, because I was just talking about what rancid nasty tasting things those are the other day.

Alright, let's get right down to it- Jeremy, you rarely left drive through, and I never left the front order taking lines. I told them I couldn't learn how to not make a big mac instead of a whopper. It was BS anyways. Micah and Andy worked in the back making stuff. I say stuff because it was not food, at any rate.

I quit the night of my 18th birthday with zero notice because of a meeting we had in the play place where Tracy told us we were a dime a dozen, and would be replaced if we didn't conform to her policies. That and she kept screwing me over with my hours. Micah may have done some cheering, but I'm pretty sure I wrote that letter myself, and even taped a dime to it adding that she could hire another 10 worthless highschoolers to do my work. Victory for PCW!

I remember the taped dime. That was classic. I don't remember working up front all that much though. I don't know if I was ever scheduled for it, I would just get sick of making food and go up front. Usually there was someone as sick of taking orders as I was of making food. If I had to guess though I wound say I worked in back ten times the amount of time I worked up front.

Maybe I was just up front a lot because that's where the ladies were.

I quit because for some reason they decided the best policy would be make the next days' schedule at like 6 pm the day before. So everyone that worked there was forced to come in everyday and see if they worked the next day. Then, of course, God help you if you missed a shift. Then, despite forcing us to check in every day, management would get pissed because employees would hang around.

Don't feel bad, I had never met anyone on this page but Jon, and I was basing my "liking" anyone on this page based on what team / sport they liked, because I mean, come one, what else did I have to go by. I didn't like Sarah at first either because of her baseball bashing article.

Yeah, I think it was because of the Taft, Eisenhower and LBJ cases that businesses started that policy.
