    How many folks here remember having to put disclaimers on the thread titles for large images, because broadband wasn't widespread.

    Or when the first Voodoo cards hit and the boards here were ablaze? Let alone any tech from 3Df/x

    Or the threads on the Bitboys Glaze 3D chip with it's embedded RAM.

    Man, I think I've been on these boards since forever (granted I don't remember my original handle on here) it seems. Though I was dual bagging handles between this one and everyone's favorite: diarrhea_splatter.

    Anyone else feel the nostalgia of the Beyond 3D boards?

    Go back into the archives to around 2003 or so... Check out the names of all the people who are no longer active here. :(

    Where did they all go, and why?

    Some are still here, but more in a lurking mode, and some others are too busy working on their current projects to even lurk.

    I think I've been fairly active at B3D since 98 or 99.

    Kinda disturbing that the above thread is almost ten years old! I seem to be getting old...

    Same here for a bit. I was so disappointed when I saw that Voodoo Extreme has a dot IGN in front of it now. I still go to Bluesnews.
