    I was talking to a young lad today who collects "old" phones. Another friend commented that he had an old maggy phone with the crank handle. The young fella had no idea, his idea of "old phones" were "old mobile phones. . It could well be that in the not too distant future that our messaging will all be video, possibly holographic.
    I'm out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message...

    think i joined in 2002 or 2004 (04 on ocau so) in those days i was hailed " Quadspeed " the idea was that being a quadriplegic & always in a hurry

    but somehow people related me to some sort of cd drive? i had nfi @ that stage what they meant

    i swapped to philquad some years later

    i was famous at one stage for writing a tutorial on gold cards. not that i really understood it, i think i just jagged it 1 day

    there was very helpful guys in those days, i think they sold fired wood, always referred to as loggers ?

    i even hosted 1 of the rare Austech Parties, i think there was about 10 of us, way too much drinking

    to the old boys Tag: Trigger51 ? Tomahawk white ox ( fernbay & MANGO rip) & many more im sure
    why do we need the NBN ? because the copper network is constipated & needs fibre

    This is an excellent forum that I have been frequenting for about 18 years. I love it for it's great information and the advice from knowledgeable members, but also for the nostalgia factor as well. I am not 50 yet admin but I'm almost there in a little while, so this forum has been a sizeable part of my life too.
    All the best admin, may you continue your good work and may Austech continue successfully for many years to come.

    Cheers

    For some reason I thought "wonder if I still exist" and thought I'd pop back to say g'day. Good to see there's still a bit of activity around.
    I remember having an early meet at a chinese buffet near Southland as a teenager. Think The^^Rock and I were the only children in this group of online adults, both travelling without a parent. Probably would be perceived negatively these days.
    The forum and chatroom years were a formative era of my childhood/early adulthood.

    I was there at the start. Copying psx cd's Don;t have quite the input I used to, but still visit regularly to keep an eye on things
    When I was a kid, I used to have an imaginary friend. I thought he went everywhere with me. I could talk to him and he could hear me, and he could grant me wishes and stuff too. But then I grew up, and stopped going to church.

    Sorry I havent been back in to this thread for a while, great to see some old Faces.

    Yes phil, I think I remember that tutorial. If you wrote one back then, you were held in legendary status....almost like a rock star. I wrote one once and was surprised I wasnt asked for autographs. I dunno how Ghostaman fought of the groupies

    Ozidude, good on you mate, there are still lots of people that still drop in occasionally and have for many years.

    The chatroom Toke, yes, a source of much trouble for me over the years. Constant death threats, threats to blow my house up.......it was great fun to visit. It was the days of the "wildwest" internet when there was no sheriff.

    Mods, given we are the same age you have probably almost been here as long as me. Thanks for all the help over the years, I reckon you have saved me a few grand

    Cheers Blinky, I recall seeing your name around for many years as well.
