"It's been 20 years since I became a PCQ&A Member!"
I'm not sure if some of you remember me. I used to go by the name "CoolKid" on this forum. I just thought of dropping by after I saw the PCQ&A icon on my bookmarks bar. It has never left that bar since I joined exactly 20 years ago.
I'm happy to see that the page interface hasn't changed at all. I feel like I'm in the early 21st century again haha. However, I am unable to view my previous posts and I keep getting an HTTP Error 500 for some reason. By reading the titles of my posts, I just realized how much of a "nerd" I was in the early 2000s, and some were just plain childish haha.
On another note, I am saddened to realize that Shelly had already passed on two years ago. He was like a father figure to me here.
Anyway, I'm glad to be back and to see those ancient emoji again. Cheers!

Same here, probably around 20 years myself, pretty crazy how time flies. I originally joined when it was PC911. I was a kid/teenager and let's just say I did not get along with some people here as we sometimes had disagreements and I'd take criticism a little too hard, but I've long put that behind me, and I sometimes check this place and feel nostalgic honestly. Sad to see it mostly died down and also sad to see all the members that have passed over the years.
I would have been like maybe 12-13ish when I joined. And now I'm 34. Where has time gone.
(this is actually a different account than I had back then, I got banned - and deserved it, back in the day lol)
YES to all. With the help of the folks on this forum I learned how to build and diagnose my own pc's. That, 15 years later, gave me the confidence to figure out who to buy my pc's from. My supplies of test and extra parts went bye-bye. Yet, I am confident I can asked any question here and get a helpful response.

Hi I also log in intermittently but not regularly after returning to India but am happy to see that the site is up and helping people. I learned a lot here especially from Shelly and felt sad when I noticed his obituary. I think I also must be touching 20 years of joining this forum. All the best to the forum Thanks to SteveYandl who use to help me with Excel Queries.Other Great Contributors Ttech, Grogan, Paul, and Jason - Thanks to them too Happy to see my younger photo in the collage link https://www.pcqanda.com/collage.shtml
