    10-02-2003, apparently. Tend to drop by once a year, or so, just out of habit.

    Bloody hell, 2003. Ten years ago...

    Haha, no. "Headshot". Yeaaah.... you're allowed to mock. I'm not very active anymore, I just hang around doing admin duties and check the Pub for the daily shenanigans.

    I remember you well. You had the highest post count for many years (before the spam thread was deleted, and well, the years passed).

    I'm curious, what made you check in again?

    Either way, WB!

    Good for you bud!!

    I registered 2 years ago but didnt become active until last year!!!

    I forgot about the site and found it again during a google search..

    I was glad they havent ruined this site by putting VB4 here..... As I lose more good VBB sites to VB4,i am even more grateful to have the ones that havent!!


    THIS IS MUCH BETTER THAN VB4!!!! (Im using the default VB3 skin)

    Yeah, I heard through the grape vine it exploded sometime after I left. It was a thread of epic proportions. Sad to see it go....

    you would think the 'spam king' would've dwindled to nothing, but, seems like I just posted a lot all around..lol

    YES! I remember you now. Forgot MM was from like Denmark or something.
    wait youre an admin? or mod?

    Curious, how long did that hold up? I think when I left I was around 11k maybe. closest one was Dave or something w/ 9k

    What made me check back? Saw Hilbert post a review on the new Radeon 7980 or something, clicked on it, and, for the hell of it, clicked on the forums after reading the review, and went to the pub. Saw this thread. By some luck, I still remembered my log-in. and here we are.

    Life stuff. I had other things that were going on at the time, and had no time to really devote here. Still kept in touch with a few (former) Guru's on FB and what not. I eventually fell off of keeping up to date on PC hardware stuff. Only recently I started reading up again and it's sort of peaking my interest a bit.

    Anyway, good to see there are still some old timers here. Suck's I lost my title of Uber also....lol

    Wut up w/ u?

    Yeah MM's from Denmark. I haven't seen him here for many years, but I still think I have him on IM somewhere. I'm an admin now. That's what you get if you stick around long enough, I guess. :p

    I don't know how long it held up, but I'd guess people started catching up around 2005/6, around there? I don't make many posts anymore either, so my post count has come to a grinding halt.

    Me? Same as you I guess. Lost interest in games a few years back and I realised it was silly pouring money into something I don't actually take advantage of. So my PC has been the same for many years now as you can see, except for SSD's and such. That, and I acquired other interests which are taking the little funds I have as a student. Though I guess when I finish my uni degree in half a years time, I will have more money and at some point I will upgrade to something more recent. I still love tech though so I'm not planning on going anywhere. Plus, I've been here for so many years now it's become a part of me, as silly as that might sound!

    Haha, I don't! :D

    Nice to see you. I guess some older people like Icebird would still appear online if you gave her a nudge.
