What happened to your knee? A question from a multiple knee surgery recipient.

Old injury. Tore it up years ago. Unfortunately I wasn't even doing anything exciting at the time; I was just shoveling snow. Slipped, fell, and twisted it the wrong way.

Most of the time it is just a minor annoyance, e.g. things can feel a little unstable when I'm carrying something heavy down a flight of stairs. Occasionally it'll act up; when that happens, taking ibuprofen generally gets it under control within a day or two.
Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.

Blew mine playing basketball, blew almost everything you can think of and a couple of things I never heard of. Needed 2 surgeries and I pretty much couldn't walk for 2 years - fun times.

I take stairs 2 at a time, but the left leg is way weaker than the right (and always hurts). Never did 2 at a time going down even in teens and 20s, just never saw the point.

Four pages and no cheese option?!

I started lurking around as a teenager trying to convince my parents/grandparents to buy me a Socket 939 rig and using TR's benchmarks as a guide for price/performance

... hasn't really changed much except where the money comes from.
I'm not a teenager any more and actually work in tech that's pretty cool I guess

Similarlry, I often came to TR for reference before I finally joined membership. Good 'ol socket 939, it was TR's review 12 years ago: https://techreport.com/review/9681/abit ... herboard/2
that convinced me to build an Abit/Athlon platform. It was a fun build for that time.

Ahhh, I remember the days back before every motherboard was either charcoal gray or flat black. There were some really crazy color schemes in the early part of this century.
I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do.
