so whats going on here

Postby jxker » Sat Jul 19, 2014 4:11 am

some of the folks here go back aways to the days of the wild wild wild web, i hate to see a good site like this go down the tubes, i think this developed from softzone?? my memory is getting fuzzy, work and a house and a couple of dogs, things that i didnt have a few years back, working in IT as a field tech, probably moving on to a helpdesk spot soon, yet i kept all my bookmarks and look up some of the good ol' sites once in awhile, remember black sun, hawkeyes world, phoenix torrents (they now exist in hiding) astalavista security site, so many torrent sites and warez, i think andre net is still up...so tell me, why did we all drift away?? i mean i still grab stuff off the bay once in awhile, i still go to diferent forums when i have different questions, remember the old anti-online?? its still up but not the same either, a lot of the old sites started facebook groups so members could stay in touch, who would have thought and how freakin sad is that? anyways i will pop in later on and see if anyone still comes by

sad truth is that the web is 'developing' and the masses are now online 24 / 7 and so social sites are now the preferred way to keep in touch, forums have had their day, and we never had anything that could allow us to add so many things to the basic software, as there was never the impetus, not the numbers to make it worthwhile

FB when commenced was set to be a contact list for a specific US redbrick university, but it arrives around the same time the net gained broadband for all, and it exploded, I do not imagine in his wildest dreams MrZ ever imagined getting to one million, let alone a BILLION ........

and in there is our demise, no one 'needs' a forum, and the only ones left that are really moving have the forum as a side project - specifically I am looking at Spiceworks they provide FREE helpdesk software to the SMB market, and have a forum associated to it that is both large AND active, it would appear to be the only way left for forums

but we, at least can always say 'We were there' :) and we will always know there are alternative routes, and will also be aware that ALL news stories regarding 'hacking' are pure bollox, as the real story will never be told

as for us ? we are struggling on, looking to curl up and die off if truth be told, just to stubborn to go :hysterical:

I stand corrected, we will soldier on until the last gasp of breath is squeezed slowly and painfully from Dino's cold dead lungs :hysterical:

We'll soldier on, as long as we can...we have no intention of closing shop as long as we need a place to keep in touch...maybe we'll get lucky and there'll be a forum Renaissance, or I'll win the lottery and can sink some money into this place :rolf6:

Long Live the TAZ! :D

and maybe just maybe, if we get a few of the old hands post to say they have seen this, I will post the numbers for the Euro lottery I will purchase in morning
anyone who is posted here prior to the number being posted gets a share of any winnings that may accrue
simples :)
