Was just thinking today that this was my first ever forum on the webz so very long ago.  Pretty sure there was a reset at some point and our respective profile join dates are actually much earlier.

How time flies!

Memory is fuzzy but there has been a few incidents...


- The domain thing and issue
- There was a database issue with some loss of posting with restore at backup
- There was the license issue I think that triggered the move from invision to simple machines forums
- I helped get a skin close to what it was with some tweaks as well


Probably not 100% and probably more incidents. Nige will know more.

Sam was a bit lax on keeping on top of some of the things back in the day - losing the domain being the biggy - I think we had three hard resets in total due to domains, database loss and switching software. Honestly I'm surprised we kept so many of the members but my account is about 20 years old if you treat it like Trigger's broom  ;D

Then there was that night where you could switch your nick repeatedly to anything you wanted. Just before shutting down I put my Serious nick back. Next day it was fixed and a lot of people had closed down without changing theirs back, had to beg for it a bit  :panic: :panic: :rofl:

Yep, I remember those database issues, and losing the domain.

I've been toying with the idea of trying to do a mobile-friendly theme but honestly don't have the time.

I joined pretty soon after getting dial up (I was a bit late)

joined because of the water cooling section... I was already water cooling, but no internet so I thought I was the only one!

was pretty shocked to find other people doing it, and that you could buy parts instead of making them!

think that's 24 years ago if memory serves :-o

pretty sure most of you guys were already here... or it feels like it anyway

Forums are a lot of work to get good working mobile.

Yep, still costing me £10 a year, no one ever came knocking.

Content wise, life began and the mate I ran it with moved away so it just kind of ran it’s course.

They are all several years older and sick of B***sh*t. It's supposedly dead and done with but it just lies there like a dead whale on the beach and won't go away.

<examines kites and electrical gear in corner...> Igor, time for another resurrection attempt? :dunno: :evil: :evil:

I think it has. Still breathing - so can't complain!

Just older, stupider & less hair. Still in Sheffield, working not far from Ye olde TekHQ (of the good times).

I haven't been back to Sheffield in a very long time, has much changed? Is the No1 Oriental Buffet still going?
