    That wasn't all that long ago, if you go back about a year and a half (or to whenever the CPC forum merged with bit-tech), I had barely any rep at that point.

    Ohhhhh I remember that.... Langer.... :eyebrow:

    Pretty much all the people that made this place have gone, apart from a few lurkers. I remember the day Kna posted a front page notice because he was so chuffed the forums had grown to 1000 members!

    Koolvin, Linear, Moose, mrhaz, biggz, Macroman, Dougie, RTT (he's still about though :) ) - few of the proper old school names I remember

    i remember the day Haz posted a picture of a rather ominous looking heatsink with a green fan on it, which was revealed the next day to be the Barton core socket A procs which OC'd like buggary :) (well compared to my palamino hand warmer at the time)

    Oh, and Piloux's black mesa, still my fave project log/mod after all this time

    Sadly, no. Somewhere along the line they quit admitting new mods and I was denied. Perhaps some day.

    Dammit, I've forgotten what yours was now. Time was, I'd see "knuck" and mentally substitute. It was your actual surname, or something, wasn't it? That's why you changed it, you wussed out :p

    edit - I'll be the first to admit that I genuinely miss CK. He was batshit insane and any thread with him involved was guaranteed to have 100% more sexism, racism and endorsement of misuse of alcohol. I loved it :)

    My ability to see humor in stupidity is seriously lacking. Probably why I couldn't stand CK

    I've been lurking off and on since mid 2001 I believe, should have joined way back then and I could be one of the old school guys too.

    I remember a lot of the stuff that's been talked about on here, though unfortunately I missed the days of Relix and only came back in on the tail end when everybody was starting to sport him in some form as an avatar lol.

    Twas searching for modding sites that brought me here, I remember twistedforums, HardOCP, looking through the mod supplies at frozencpu... Lurked at em all, stuck around here... And it only took me 10 years to join. So maybe I procrastinate a little lol.

    i only joined about two years ago, but i've been lurking for another two years or so. i do remember most of the things talked about here. i have never known relix as an active poster, but i was once on a party he attended too... didn't see him, little did i know...

    and ghys/knuck, why did you change your name? it used to be a reference, like nexxo or bindi or mankz or jhanlon or so many others. i didn't catch you changing your name...?

    Man I remember when I joined, I was actually googling for local mountain biking trails and a thread here came up! I came for the discussions and stayed for the mods. And the discussions. Always loved this place, despite the fact I don't post enough :/

    Still nice to see that despite the various new owners the community lives on in the same (mostly) friendly manner and even grows :)

    I don't really remember how I came about this site, was a while ago now. Maybe there should be a senior Bit-Techer status?

    I joined back in 2006 when i was supposedly learning something to do with Novell Netware, or Linux Server. Used to read the main site and reviews a lot, but rarely read those now since Dennis took over.
    Still, the forums remain as daft and amusing as ever, so i keep returning, even when i go away on holiday.
