Yo yo yo!.....everyone? Just checking in like everyone else. Wish there was still the annual Michigan BBQ because I actually might have been able to make it one of these days. Ah well......So turns out, I'm 50. Atari is 50. Disney World is 50. Guess I was born in a pretty decent time. Our current time....I don't like near as well, unfortunately.

Well I’m still in touch with a couple of you chaps after all these years. But hi to everyone else!

I’m married (8 years now), pregnant and in a very high power government job. Thanks for all teaching me how to deal with life. It’s much appreciated.

Especially Vrock. Debating with you when I was what.. 15/16 was damn good practice. Haha

Welcome back, and congrats on the recent developments. I assume you're still Kiwi?

It's fun to see a lot of the old names pop up. I still lurk once in a while.

Life has taken many twists & turns over the years.

Currently a clinical informatics implementation specialist at the second largest women & children's hospital in Canada. (basically I troubleshoot & train people how to use the new software for the lab). Also working towards a PhD in art history.


Does anyone know if LicketySplit still shows up, or has had any contact with him at all?

Unfortunately, Lickety passed some 10 or more years ago.

Over 20 years on a site... I don't think except for Ars and TR I have anything left on the internet that is that old...

A lot happens over 20 years though, going from working as on site support in 1999 to becoming involved in networking full time in 2006, and going over to security side a few years later... coming up as my 10 year anniversary as a senior security consultant with my current employer. But a lot started with Ars and TR back in the late 90'es and then TR after the split.

poking my head in to say hello. Wouldn't say I'm "left". This is my first drive by in 3 years. Buying a house, getting married, and a new job, dont lend much free time these days for enthusiast pc building. Then again, taking a look around, all I see are articles on crypto and gambling so it doesn't seem like im missing out on much.....

No longer a forum link on the front page. Damn the mighty have fallen. Crypto and gambling (or did I repeat myself?)

Yup, I occasionally stop by to see what's happening here. After Scott and Geoff left the website lost all steam. There isn't money to be made in tech websites anymore unless they diversify heavily. Everything went to YT, which is where I generally watch reviews and leave comments. Gamers Nexus and Hardware Unboxed being the best, still not as great as TR was in it's hayday. It's always funny when they rediscover something TR was doing a decade ago, but that's the way things go. There aren't any hardware review websites left.

Had to google the forums to even find a link here in the first place. Looks like the front page is just being used to farm clicks by whoever owns it. Was lots of opportunity to pivot, just no one here to do so. Sad to see this place is so desolate, used to be absolutely popping most of the time. There isn't a single comment on the frontpage anymore.
