Ah, the good old days
This is my favorite Tweak3d sig image that I've had so far:
There's some nostalgia for ya
It's neat to see how much we've matured as a group. In those days many of us were young and still trying to nail down our own identities. Our cars, our computer specs, the games we played... these material things were what we used to define ourselves. We were choosing sides: Mac or PC, Voodoo or some other shit, Intel or AMD...
Now many of us are married, or raising kids, or homeowners, or career-centered. We identify ourselves by what we do. We choose between politicians, religions and whatever else. That's just all part of getting older I guess.
I'm nostalgic for those more innocent (albeit petty) days of yore. In a way, I don't feel any older than I was back then. I guess I am though.
Great summary Smirnoff. I feel the same also, but indeed, my objective or my ways to identify are quite different.
Cyrix and 3DFX FTW!
3Dfx sure, but Cyrix? Those CPUs were terrible!
Indeed they were... And I did so many rants on the Geforce 2 MX. That was some major crap.
Psssh.... I was high tech with my AMD K6-2 500MHz and my GeForce 4 TI-4200 video card. I think on that system I was running 64 megs of ram, and a grand total of 12gigs of hard drive space. I never thought I would ever fill that much space!
God, those were the days...
I still hang around here for the nostalgia of it all. I will never leave this place!
I remember quite a few of those. Ahh, the good ol days.
Dual Voodoo 2s and an overclocked Celeron 300, my favorite rig ever. My Quake 2 frame rate absolutely made me giggle...
gahhdamn thats some old shit.
i think i made wedge's sig with the star wars background.
and who the fuck was op fury? i remember him vaguely, and never could figure out wtf that is on his head
ive still got all my old sigs.
I don't think I ever had a sig, but my glorious PC ran Windows 98 SE! The specs were as follows:
CPU: Pentium II 266MHz
RAM: 128MB PC66
HDD: 20GB Maxtor
Graphics Card: Riva TNT 16MB
Sound Card: SoundBlaster 16
I spent countless hours playing Wolfenstein 3D, Doom, Rise of the Triad, Duke Nukem 3D, Shadow Warrior, Rebel Assault II, and Monkey Island on that PC. And I remember masturbating furiously to looking at pics of Melissa Joan Hart over a 33.6Kbps connection. Ahh... the good ol' days.
I had a few of those 300x100 sigs, but I only remember one of them. And it's not up there. :[
It is true that a lot of us have pretty much grown up here. I started posting here when I was 15, 11 years ago, on my Win2k box. I'm sure a lot of members here can say the same thing. And I always used to lol @ 950's lime green MS Paint sig. Glad to see it's up there.
Yes, and it's only one of the first chapters in getting older. There are more chapters to come before the story is over.
dafaq? Were's my Lindsay Lohan sig? That shit was hot.
Speaking of Lohan, isn't her Playboy pictorial coming up?
The only reason i'd even look at a pictorial of a nude Lohan, would be strictly out of curiousity. (fuckinay! where's the unibrow?)
we need to start another tweak sig resurgence, like the good ol days.
I kept mine! Thanks 950 for that awesome sig
cmon guys, add some sigs!
wow that sig of mine is old! haha when I first started using photoshop
I don't think I even had a sig for years.
LOL, that was always my favorite.
I also have all my sigs saved, man I probably have like 40?
also, I should fix the one I have now, broke in the new software, haven't gotten around to fixing it
