although it doesn't seem that long. I wondered how many of you were with us, back then in the days of Windows 2000, the launch of the Pentium 4 processor, and the advent of Twitter.

I know of some, but there are others who are lurking but not posting. Fancy coming into the light just this once? I would love to see some of the old familiar names again - you know what an old softie I am.

That's definitely before my time (around 02/03 I think, thread about Sony CD burner)!

Was my first thread, ten years 2 months today. At 73.5 years of age I am trying to remember the name of the of the person who used to give the answer of formulas for MS excel during this period , I used to look forward to the answers, but perhaps I am changing the direction of this thread and for that I would apologies.

Been here since June 2002 , but still remember buying a 386 pc with Dos 3 I think.It was thought then that the "486" pc was unnecessary speed for a home user ! Before that it was an Amstrad and Amiga and intially a spectrum and BBC B. Those were the days of plug in ROMS of 8kb and 16kb size which would not even get you a full stop these days.

I came to the forum in late 2000. From memory I was about 38500 registered member. I could not have survived without the help I received. I was Barmoor in those days. I thought VoG was for Very old Gentleman. He was excellent at Excell. Forum Editor was China in those days.

Seem to remember a Gandalf. Wracking my memory bank for other names.
