Below you can find text versions of the AOL profiles belonging to Eric Harris when he used AOL's instant messenger online. I transcribed them because the screenshots I have are of poor quality and can be hard to read. Data decays over time and after nearly 10 years, the quality of the images hasn't gotten any better.

Also, you can see this WBS chat profile for RebTheJuvey. It's not an AOL profile; WBS used to be a big web-based chat network but was bought out by the Go Network in early 2001. I captured the HTML for posterity before it disappeared. Eric Harris had a couple of webpages hosted through WBS as well, which you can find linked to the index of Eric's websites.

The final part of the personal quote is in Latin. Translated: "If you want peace, prepare for war." It matches a graphic found on one of Eric's webpages (see below).

The following profile has been debunked as a fake posted by someone who was not Eric, though the media claimed at the time that it was his. I've included it here to illustrate how the shootings affected the mainstream internet and how copycats and pretenders surfaced in websites and IM circles. Several people cropped up claiming to be the shooters, friends or girlfriends of theirs, or family members. Some claimed to have known the victims but got fundamental information about them wrong, such as one person who wrote to tell me about their "best friend Isaiah Shoels - I called her Issy" (Isaiah was a guy). The hub-bub has died down considerably since then but every now and again I see someone pop up with claims of being someone they're not, in order to nab a little of Columbine's attention. It's interesting how some folks who relate to a tragedy feel the need to pretend to actually have been a part of it.
