    It's more that my post rate has massively decreased, although that might also be the forum slowing down during summer. :confused:

    I've been lurking here since 2009, loved reading threads in the hardware section, and the build logs.

    I post if I have a question, or a some-what helpful answer that I can give.
    Otherwise, I post in keep one change one...

    Its always good to have a few audiophiles around the place. Now if only I could still afford such fripperies.

    Yea the spam threads are pretty positive on the post/rep count, although I've cut back a little posting in those myself for fear of being an actual spammer like Teelzebub or Kidmod :lol:

    Ooh, and longweight ;)

    It's unlikely that they do know I was around in the good old days, but that's fine with me - and thanks for your kind words.

    I have been good friends with Ed for a long time so I do keep up with what's going on and, since he took the job, he knows that I'm there if he needs someone to bounce ideas off in confidence. We've talked a few times about stuff and I'm sure we'll talk again in the future, but it's not for me to barge in with a glint of nostalgia. :)

    Koolvin might have set it all up, but between Wil and yourself the real Bit was formed and fostered. Lest we forget.

    Think I lurked for a day. Got the advice I required and stayed for the gaming.

    I login daily and or have a bit tech tab open. Hit refresh every hour or so. Read them posts. Reply when needed.

    Worst is seeing the market place knowing I cant buy even the greatest deals.

    Had to stop reading to reply to this...

    Seriously... if we can get everyone to do this it would be funny as hell. I am approx 15/16 stone and my gf is 8.5. It will be messy... lube required. And **** might get blurry.

    lol she said colon.

    Does it have to be swimwear? I am partial to a spot of lacy frills myself.

    you are opening up all kinds of freaky avenues there. I personally say it would be worth it to see if we can provoke a bit-tech wide reaction.

    I've gone full circle. I lurked, then I joined and now I lurk again lol.

    Partly I can't be arsed to post as frequently as I once did, and partly I decided there were better things to be doing. Still love the place, but I come round for Tea & Cheesecake less often than perhaps I should.

    Although I don't like writing long post's I'll try:

    I started reading Bit-tech forums sometime in 04-05 when Black Mesa mod by Piloux was one of the best things ever in modding scene (it still is if you ask me). When I joined the forums I was posting fair amount in modding section, but didn't bother to go anywhere else. I also joined some other forums back then but eventually my interest to post anywhere else than bit-tech ended withing a year or two. Between Sep 06 to present it has been bit of a roller coaster ride in terms of lurking and reading. Some times I find the motivation to come here and read what other people have to say, but it can take many months that I don't lurk or read the forums at all.

    I have tried to post when I feel like it but too many times I just simply don't. It's not like I have nothing to say. Like many here I'm on the quieter side as a personality, but that doesn't mean I don't like to talk. TBH it is the complete opposite. I love having good conversations with people from almost any topic. The real reason why I don't post much is the English language. I'm just way too insecure about my English skills so that I could engage into conversations with it. I also have some problems understanding the context of the text when written in English. I just can't always tell the difference if person is joking or actually tying to be sarcastic or someway offending.

    Oh and I do like to learn other languages and I know I can't improve my skills if I don't use and practice what I have learned. It's just I put my standards so high I demand myself the same kind of skills as in Finnish. And yes, it's stupid :duh:

    Love you too Tel :hehe:

    Damn right son.

    Whatever floats your boat Glenn, I just went for the first thing on hand, it wasn't pre-planned or anything :worried:

    I wondered what that smell was. And then you poke your head around the door. Coincidence? :lol:

    Your English is substantially better than 85% of the posts on this forum, and 95% of the wider internet :jawdrop:

    I think I had a brief look 'round January, found that there were actually forums attached to Bit, joined up and the chaos started from there.

    I do try to keep my posts down to constructive only, though, if someone else has already answered a question; I shalln't chip in unless I feel it's needed. Hence my rather "low" post count. And lack of Rep Cheat.

    I often look in places like the Serious section, but I can't hold a debate well to save my life, so rather than embarrassing myself and irritating others present; I just leave them to it.

    I sorta lost interest in hardware; If I'm posting now, 99% of the time it's in 'General' and in that 99%, about 95% of it in 'Motorcycle Mayhem' as that's where my life is right now; work, college, and riding are my main priorities. I just don't get too excited over hardware any more. Hell, all that money I spent on a gaming PC and I spend most of my time on it watching videos on youtube, hardly playing many games now.

    I'd like to post more, but don't really get the opportunity.
