They had forums back 20 years ago? Omg there wasn't even internet back thenI love this forum, I've only been on one other forum in my life that I liked as much and that was around 20 years ago! Seriously I thought forums were dead but this one is simply great. Plenty of activity, tons of knowledge, fast answers for most questions asked along with multiple opinions each time from people with different perspectives/preferences/etc in the rc game.
I spend far more time on this forum than anything else I do with a screen.
NAPSTER I forgot about that. Bricked my computer in college twice with viruses trying to download MP3sI believe I was on msn around then.. and napster
That was the puzzlebubble era… good times.Limewire and eBaum's world.. remember ask Jeeves, dang takes me back
This is probably the 123rd? (guesstimate) forum I have been 'addicted' to. Thankfully I barely ever got addicted to Social Media apps before I realized it was a plague and nuked all those apps from my phone and favorites.Wondering if you guys feel the same way I do..
lulz. I had an Atari 1600? 3200? 'PC' back in the 80's and was envious of the guys with the Commodore 64's.I remember the day dad upgraded us from a 14.4k to a 56k modem. The neighbors came over to see how fast it was.
Damn 1995 I was a junior in high school.computers we had then were in black white only.no color.and there was no internet .I reamember having to insert a floppy disc in it.actually sorry I believe the letters on the screen were like a green color but that was about the only color I ever saw .gave me a headache .great excuse to leave the class to check out the hot nurse.i was in there very often trying to full fill my fantasy of hooken up with her ..didn't go as planned..lol she was already sleeping with the principal .shucks.Met wife on Aol chat room in 1998. Had internet in 94 or 95 I believe.

Well I suppose I was way to young to know about that at that time .I wasn't even into RC's untill I reached my twenty's.at that time I was just a high schooler and only cared about girls and shooting hoops all day and practice with varsity basketball team.didnt care about computers.just wasn't my thing.even to this day Im not a computer person .but I love RC'sYes....I remember those, and they were called BBS board.
