Post from a long time VB user and .org member.

I've been away for a while and just started reading about all of the drama. For the record I have both paid hacks and free hacks on all of my forums. To those that have chosen to leave you will be missed.

And those of us who stay? Can we be missed, too? It's only fair. :cross-eyed:

Welcome back, my friend.

Just thinking about all types of forum software and how far it has progressed. Damn I feel old, I remember running forums back when you could email Ted (Old timers will know which Ted I am talking about) and get a response in a few hours when his software was shareware.

I even remember what a pain in the ass it was to moderate the motorcycle area on the Well. :surprised:

Yes, and you still wear them everyday.

PS If people ever wonder why things go slow here at vb.org, they should try to work in our Mod. forum with the smell of those socks for some time.

Funny you should mention BBS's. My Uncle is Ward Christensen (The author of the XMODEM protocol and the very first BBS software "CBBS" back in 1978)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ward_Christensen

I was also the FAQ author for the Renegade BBS software in the early 90's.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Renegade_%28BBS%29

Now I'm a professional webmaster and DBA for www.godaddy.com

We are really showing our age!

I ran Spitfire BBS back in the days. The author of it lives about 10 miles from me so I was in on all the updates and beta testing up front. That's when a 10 MHZ AST (what I had) would kick a 12 MHZ Compaq (what the Spitfire author had) to dust. We thought we were the Kings of the hill back then.

I was the bad boy on my block back then with the fastest BBS in town if not the state. I guess you could consider me the PC-Rebel of the Golden Age.

/me has given everyone enough ammunition now for the age jokes. He hopes they are happy

hehe...TV's used to be black and white and had no remotes once upon a time too ( I still kick myself when I think about the $2300 I dropped for a P75 with 8mgb of RAM once upon a time )
