wow...... they filtered the word c r a p
I haven't been here in a while..
I stop in once in a great while. It seems the filters were successful in filtering just about everything. :rolleyes:
Where is everyone?
JM and his little mate (lando) are prolly doin time with BD somewhere.
I used to spend alot of time here, but I think the problem is, there are so many forums out there it's just hard to be competitive with the big name forums out there....
There is no troof, simply choose the blue pill.
We all know what 'apon...... in 1966, right?
Blue Cloud was an Aricaree scout whose brains exploded all over Greasy Grass, he caused it all ya know. T'was all his fault!
What do you call an Arikara scout? Mr. Ree :rolleyes:
The fact that no serious political or religious discussion was ever allowed to reach its conclusion is probably the reason most sensible adults left for pastures new. And when members with serious questions asked for advice or opinions, their posts were hijacked by e-yobs.
The glory days are long gone. :(
Very possibly true.
The glory days of 2004 fell ruin to other factors entirely though.
As far as I know the tech area was kept pretty clear of trash. Maybe too much actually.
I run a small biker forum (>5000) and we have no curse filter. There is seldom any cussing and certainly none of the dissent that the filters cause either. ;)
(OK just saying Hi... cause I can! It's been a while. Well Hello Strawbs! herosrest!!, r8500!!!, Genesound!!!!, JM!!!!!, cwin!!!!!, Rabbitrunner51, werz and all others..., Hiya *S* ) http://www.fancysplace.com/smileys/cool_shades.gif
WOW...It's like old home week...
yeah, I think when I last posted I felt kind of embarrassed because none of you's had post and it was almost dead. Come to fine out.... " They Live" after all. Nice to hear from everybody again. I'm not going to cry.. but let me grab a quick kleenex. LOL
Groan, Yawn......Gimme some volts :-0
Hrmmm....Lady Sonia, my psychic medium, told me I should check in here. Looks like nuthin changed, including rabbit's hardware.
Actually your almost correct. I did get a new video card a few months ago. Love the card. Big upgrade for me. Also, I had to get another motherboard due to my old one going south. Love that also. As for the future, I am and have looked into my upgrades I want. I figure by June or so of this year, I will get a new processor , AMD Phenom 2 960T quad core plus 4GB of new memory, 1333 speed. Can still play any new game out there now at more then good frame rates. LOL
Another positive note for me especially about this forum. I used to feel as Strawbs stated to some degree but as of the pst year os so, I have trully appreciated the responses to many issues i was having ,which I would guess 90% helped solve the issue. I also confer either here or privately to one moderator here who is and has become a good friend and confidant or sorts. Saved my bacon more then once.
I did , as a side note have a big issue with one moderator here at previously but both "Steve' and 'Train' are super people in my book.
Ha! Nice seein all youse peoples. :t
They all got banned. ;)
LET'S REVIVE OT!
It's mainly due the way back when we discouraged "grownup-kids" to take their **** elsewhere, with that almost all those hyped guys left to the other forum that are more into the hardware benching oriented than here.
In a way it's good, at least you know here you'll only find the serious people. :t
Personally i've been hanging out mostly on XDA as now i'm more addicted to phones stuff than PC, heck you can even run VMware on a phone now!... PCs will soon become obsolete, with all these Dual cores and Quad cores phones coming out, with more and more RAM / storage space
my Phone is more powerful than my Core2Duo laptop.... can you imagine that?
and the battery life last 6 times as longer than my laptop battery
the only thing missing on these super phones now in days are just larger size portable / flexible screens
or perhaps one of those coming out Google glasses
I still do gaming rigs and HTPC, and still recycle still good and working PCs for simple web/email/homework machines for my family
but less and less people wants to take those in, heck even donation places they don't want old stuff anymore.
but it's such a waste, all those good old relic machines that still works.
I have a huge collection of hardware in my basement still, it's like a museum, the rest i either donate them or sell them for cheap for whomever needs parts to fix their old machines.
OT is OT and it really isn't supposed to be serious. It started with Zybch and Fist getting the boot and honestly I wouldn't care if I were banned again myself. This place is ruined. :down:
Or.... we could play "Guess Skivvy's original user name" :t
First guess-> Mireland
Have to admit that I miss the part about going over to The Ban Clan and seeing what was being schemed up... NOT... But it did seem weird that there was some sort of honor in being banned here.
Does this thread need a post from me ? ........ I can fix most stuff ya know :p
Hey all! been a while since I've been on here (forgot my password). Hope you're all well and increasing in wealth. lol
Anybody remember cheeseman?
I don't know why I was here, or why I left. Nore do I really know why I keep coming back. BUTI do know I'm happy to be here and see familiar names of unfamiliar members. I could guess it's all about testing my memory and guessing my pword :t
I have a feeling when big business squeezes all the utility out of the Internet over the course of the next decade or so forums will bounce back. Of course, that probably won't include a reboot of this one. They're easy to set up, almost anyone can use one and in an underground network of some sort would be an appropriate place for community.
I envision a world where I'm finally putting all this radio junk I've accumulated to good use and building WAN's on ham radio bands. :x (Of course, that is a pretty lucid vision).
Had to create a new account as could not remember my password
Been ages due to work, was most likely last here in 2005, you guys helped me no end when i was raw. I remember messing with the mobo switches, thought I had killed it, went round a friends logged in here and you saved me...good days
will be posting a couple of help questions before I go, really should just buy a new PC (still have the same one, fully upgraded as far as it can)
The "Ban Clan" lol. Hey - only 4 or so banned with all of the nonsense that went on? Sounds like Mad Max's forum to me. Besides, most that were banned cried their way back on in days. Wah!
Yeah, the OSes and motherboards have been reliable of late. We all have had the opportunity to finally use our PCs. Amazing! My mobo is finally fading away after 6 years of solid duty. Looks like I'll be asking for advice from Midknyte and the crew once more soon. Or maybe I'll just get a Dell i5 refurb desktop and slap a half-height GPU in it. :p
It's great to see the old names here. Be well guys. Yeah you too j.m ;)
This thread has been rolling on for 5 years and things haven't really become any more active than they were before. I'm surprised the corporate overlords keep it running, although I'm not upset by that either. Its a good piece of history.
Well hey anyway... :-@
Here is my yearly response. :cool:
My old PC can't play DooM! id Software is a secret branch of Intel! :mad:
Coming back here every so often, brings me back to younger and more enjoyable days. Trouble shooting, tweaking more classic computer hardware. This forum made me feel connected to real people with a real passion to help an joke around. Reminds me of how much more patience I had back then. Wait for my pc to dialup to the interwebs to check for the newest port or to be the newest post with a new exciting topic...
Sixty four years olde and finally got a full-time gig. What kind of crazy company signs on a 64-year old as FT with benefits? A desperate one! Screw 'em. They worked me like a mule for 9 years with no benefits. It's payback time! I'll milk this until they carry me out or I win a little Lotto.
Hope you're all well.
P.S. That Windows 10 upgrade is still free - and updated with all patches - here:
