Please post it in here if your an old timer that had to re-join and we can try and get your accounts merged and join dates sorted.
If you can supply any old info that would be a great help Smile.
Keeps it all together in the one thread and you can bump it if we ( well the AdminTongue) don't get back to you LOL

Old timer?Geek Well I do go back to 2000 / 2001 when I was a bit more of a noob than I am now..

The ladies love it! (apparently), mind you they may well be blue-rinsers themselves...

My mate started going grey at school and was completely silver by 20! I'm 44 so I'm not doing too bad for an old codger!LOL

Well I feel geriatric now...
Joined 1st Jan 1998 - but look at those points! Woohoo! 15263 LOL

http://www.ukvac.com/forum/techscramble_topic312479.html

I've just fired up my SCRAMBLE bootleg called STARFIRE. 
The connections are the KONAMI style, and I've connected +5V, +12V and the 
monitor inputs. 
The game works fine, sound and all is there, but on the pinouts I have it 
mentions -5V. 
What's that for then? As I understand, certain ICs need -5V, but the game is 
functioning ok without it. 
Any ideas?

And while I'm on the subject, can anyone tell me which ROM has the title / 
intro data on it? 
I'd like to re-burn it with the original name "SCRAMBLE" and "How far can 
you penetrate our SCRAMBLE system".

Cheers

Jase

I'm definitely an older timer than 2003, though I did have the name frothmeister03 for a while having rejoined in 2003 I think for some reason.

When did the mailing list cease and the forum become live?  

I think I joined the list originally in 2001 when I first started looking for a Spy Hunter so I'm fairly sure that's what my first post on the mailing list will be.

Would be interesting to be able to re-read my original noobish posts and see how I haven't really progressed in 12 years. ;-) Just for old times sake

I originally joined the old mailing list in Feb '97 with the email address cpoole@dial.pipex.com .
Then, I think I joined this forum with the email address cliff.poole@dial.pipex.com (or maybe that was Yahoo Groups). Anyway, I think I was automatically migrated when this place opened.
My old username was cliffpoole, and maybe some other variants.
