ironnut77: Sanji - I believe that "two victory" rule was in the very early days of the original show, scrapped after 1993 or so.

Sanji Himura: Few were brave enough to try it in ICJ, I can count a few of them off the top of my head, Toshiro Kandagawa is a top contender.

Sanji Himura: Tell me the truth here. Am I the only one who is slightly put off over the fact that the challenger in the final battle did NOT get to pick her Iron Chef of choice to do battle with? Two victories over an IC in ICJ earns a chef IC status...

Man Alive!: Those were the days! Kitchen Stadium took in many refugees from the wonderful Iron Fans community. I miss the old crew!

ironnut77: rosdaddy - ManAlive was indeed with us on IronFans. A bunch of the IronFans members followed him here once that site was defunct. Sadly, not many remain active today.

rosdaddy: Hey ManAlive - Nice to digitally meet you (or, re-meet if you were on the boards back in the early oughts)

Man Alive!: I'm still here! My heart swells every time I see renewed interest in Iron Chef!

ironnut77: Haven't seen ManAlive in a while - hope all is well, and that he can see the slight uptick in activity on this site recently. ICJ is STILL alive!

icfanus5: Hello all and Happy New Year! Long time IC fan. Started watching when I was probably 10 or 11 years old, I'm 35 now! I'm sad to see a lot of the people no longer with us, like Kobe and Kandagawa.

ironnut77: ishinabelover111: the site ironcheffans.com has a listing, but still working to restore links to episodes

ishinabelover111: I've gotten back into iron chef after I recalled watching it whenever it aired on SBS, but I am struggling to find any sort of solid archive for the show that is still maintained today. ironchefdb.com only has links to youtube videos and not enough info

Man Alive!: After many years, the original forum background has been restored! I thought it was lost to time, but it's back!

Well, other than a day or two a couple of weeks ago, this weekend is the nicest it's been in a long while - high temps above 10C, with some places seeing 15. We're still down near freezing at night, which is OK. We'll probably have one last kick at the cool weather can, right around Easter, then it will warm up for real. Our daylight savings starts next weekend.

OK - just an update on the weather front - yesterday we had a really bad storm go through, we lost part of our back fence, and a large tree in our front yard fell over into our neighbour's yard - it took out the front fence and landed on their car- so have been organising the clean up. We can be thankful though, no one was injured, and the house got spared as well. We only rent the house we're in, so the landlord will have to deal with the damage costs, but seeing as though it's a long weekend, everyone has to wait a bit longer to get things done. We were luckier than some, people lost roofs and had trees go through buildings. The storm itself only lasted 15mins, but the place looked like a tornato went through it!!

Almost sounds like it was a small tornado.....too bad about your neighbour's car. Glad to hear no one was hurt.
When I was a kid, we had a big gale like that in my hometown...nearly hurricane force winds in the dead of winter. Luckily there was no snow with it, or it would have taken a week to dig out from the snow drifts....

There's some more good news on the car - despite the tree landing on it, the car only received a few minor scratches (it wasn't as bad as first thought). Now everyone is in the clean up process - the wood-chipping and gardening/mulching businesses have been having a field day getting rid of all the tree limbs. Our neighbourhood only had tree damage and fence damage - other neighbourhoods have had house damage, with trees crashing into them. It was a miracle that no-one was injured or killed. When people build houses, they plant large trees right up close to their houses, which look good, but aren't so good when a storm comes along. The reports are saying the storm was a 1 in 100 year even in terms of the winds and rains - we had 25mm (7in) of rain in 3 mins - I wouldn't want to go through that again!!
