Eternal September
172 "disused techies' saloon" where Maxine meets Traipse. In Usenet slang, Eternal September (or the September that never ended) began in September 1993, the month that internet service provider America Online (AOL) began offering Usenet access to its tens of thousands, and later millions, of users. Before then, every year in September, a large number of new university freshmen acquired access to Usenet for the first time, and took some time to become accustomed to Usenet's standards of conduct and "netiquette". But, after a month or so, these new users would learn the networks' social norms or simply tire of using the service. However, for the pre-existing users of Usenet, the influx of new users from September 1993 onwards was a new and endless manifestation of the phenomenon. Wikipedia entry
