    If I remember correctly, I joined this forum 7 years ago today. And if it wasn't exactly today it's pretty close to the 21st, of 2001. I know alot of old people are still around, ahh how the times have changed.

    I joined when we were still on the PCStats network. Do I meet the criteria for being an old schooler?

    I believe I joined several months before 950, I want to say it was april/march of 2000.

    The only thing I remember back then was the flame forum and wendy and a user name lund who had a sig that had a cow or buffalo in it.

    I lurked up until November 2002, then joined up. i put out a question about mercury mobos. By the, i already knew how to mobo. I got into the off topic section about a year later, the rest is history. alot of interesting characters have come and gone. Funny posts and good people. the memes....oh the memes that have traversed the ranks. There are quite a few old members I miss. i've been around long enough to watch some
    boys grow into fine men, you happen to be one of those fine men Nidex.

    I've been around since before '05 for sure but I couldn't tell you win. I think I jumped over here from another board when all we REALLY shot the shit about was video cards and other hardware. I'm pretty sure I had just upgraded to Win 98SE and I was playing a ton of Rainbow Six and USNF. I can't remember the original name of the site...............anyone? Perhaps I'm mixing things up.

    I originally signed up in '01, but probably didn't make my first post for a few months. I think I signed up somewhere in the fall, but can't remember for sure.

    I got in just before Tass, round about spot on 3 years ago now. I came because Pudz (he's long gone now) told me to come here for help with...something. Can't remember what. Anyway you all seemed like a bunch of swell guys (/gay) so I decided to stay!

    Jeez, really dropped the ball on that one...

    That's about right for me as well. Rivazone linked to here, and I'd lurk from time to time. And then when Rivazone went belly up this was supposed to be the "rally point" for the members. But as far as I know I'm the only one who stuck around.

    So yeah, 10 fucking years. Simply amazing...
