Quote from: G$ on January 31, 2009, 06:41:34 PMwasn't the old forum at penny-farthing.net or something?you know, the only member I can remember from that long ago is you, David. I know I'm forgetting others... when did Karl join?Also, some posted consistently for a while, then just quit. Some guy (i think his name was Chris) with Sarah Chang's eye as an avatar, for example. Anyone remember who I'm talking about?
Quote from: DavidW on January 31, 2009, 06:56:54 PMAndre was one of the first to come over, and I was actually one of the last. Me, Heck, Hector, Iago, Catison, Herman, Molman, Gurn, Dirk (he's still here too), Karl, Weirdears, Andre, Pink Harp, Sidozey and a few others all came around in the same few months.That's not really the beginning of the story, those posters (minus me and Catison) started on the Classical Insights board years before that. My only 90s era posting on classical fora was just a couple of posts on rmcr. And I have to admit that rmcr is much better at retaining posters (such as Tom Deacon, M, Vaneyes, etc etc (that list could go on for very long)) than the internet forums.
Quote from: Brünnhilde forever on January 31, 2009, 06:57:30 PMGot it, David! Was he with any of the NYT fora? If you say so, Luv, your memory is younger than mine!
Quote from: G$ on January 31, 2009, 06:59:43 PMAndre sounds familiar... Who's Dirk? (i mean, his screen name now?)
Quote from: G$ on January 31, 2009, 07:17:09 PMMaybe we should start a club for us seniors
Quote from: G$ on January 31, 2009, 07:25:08 PMFor some reason, though, the nostalgia of old message board posting doesn't quite compare to the nostalgia of real life.
Quote from: DavidW on January 31, 2009, 07:20:19 PMI had forgotten Gabriel. And that's really a shame that I would do that, because he and Herman really got me into Haydn. And you know he is my favorite composer now. Gabriel just posted a few days ago, so he's still here.Even though alot of posters still seem to be here, we really have lost much more of the older times than we've retained.
