oh, I'm afraid I must admit to being a refugee.
I'm suprised noone grabbed the awesome
Actually yes I am aswell to be fair, Started reading CPC when I was in college, lurked and then got linked to this... void of physics location of the universe known as Bit-Tech!
joined to post about trubor (??)'s frying an egg in a foil tray,
on a heatsink made of 2P pieces sitting on an athlon xp....
those were the days
I started reading CPC when I was 10, lurked on the cpc forums and other tech sites without signing up.. eventually signed up and here I am
Traveled back in time?
...when you see people talking about 'Relix' and remember when he had a complete fit at you for using an upper case R at the start of his nick
"I'm just a guy. Uber Sexy, but just a guy" - Relix
How the hell have I got 7000 views?
I just remembered, I signed up when the OCS forum/shop died. I lurked on Bit but didn't post.
I think quite a few members came over at the same time.
I roid rage joined when read something one of the mods cpmma posted.. came from a couple other forums
wish there was more warrior and elton drama.. that was entertaining
maybe a krikkit vs robots battle in the serious forum again
...when you remember the first mod ever posted on teh front page
I'm thinking a lot of people here need lives. Oops, I guess now I do too. ;-)
I think those 10 years long suffering
service medals are a fine idea to be thinking about.
Reading through this thread has been good fun seeing some of the old names and thinking 'oh yeah, wait, are they not still about?' BT has been my first visited bookmark for a long time now and although I may not post a lot I read plenty and am very grateful to everyone whose posts have been informative to me in some way.
... when you know Bindis biggest secret...
Yeah, I'd never heard of anyone doing that with a whole aubergine before... oh, wait... he's got a bigger secret?
Yeah its been a while now. There are a couple of people gone missing over time like Zap or DougEdey.
Anyone knows hat happend?
edit: Just remembered one thing, wasnt there a time when manks tried to change his nick but went back after a while?
I remember when people joined to ask the question,
"I have a broken laptop, can I connect the screen to my PC?"
That's why I joined , oh and when all you saw on here Penski's avatar flashing all over the place.
I sympathize, but as Roger Ebert put it:
Refuge In Audacity
CK was so ludicrously stupid and offensive that everybody instantly knew, upon seeing his posts, not to take him seriously. So he was never at risk of actually offending, harming or misleading anyone.
I wonder how many of those who were members back then are still active. Maybe a handful of us.
Is the "CK" member you're referring to "ComputerKing"? I remember him. Who wouldn't?!
