I wish I had older backups so I could get more than screenshots going but it was fun digging those up, seen some more in the attachment archives, I only looked at my own when doing the article.

Nothing really, just always nice to see the result of the small iterations I make.
Even now, have a few notes on my desktop of a few changes I wanted to do. Minor stuff like making avatars less round :D

Also got a dev site up to test the new Xenforo 2.2 beta as it might require a few changes on the portal, but hoping not!

From Internet Archive October 24th 2001 and does not even have a picture logo yet. I think XP officially came out the 25th (notice XP Countdown at the top and survey bottom right) .

Still here since...omg...since 2002! That's back when active desktop scripts were better than sliced bread, the VoodooLights screensaver was epic and 1/4 of my work day was spent perusing the forums. I lost all my custom OSNN art and wallpapers years ago but I still have a few of my vintage NTFS avatars and sigs! Ah, the memories... And so sorry to hear about Sazar, that's really sad.

This trip down memory lane has been a trip, thanks for sending out the spam EP :)

I stopped by just the other day but prior to that it's been years since I last visited. Nice to see some veteran XP-erience / NTFS / OSNN people are still alive and kicking ass.
I remember you!

Wow, it's been forever since I dropped by, but got the email the other day and was wondering how everyone was doing. So many familiar faces!

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
