At the end of August our forum silently celebrated it's 10th birthday! It did it so quietly that even I didn't notice  :D

Thanks for all the support guys. If you have any special "forum memories", please share.

I do have some special memories: about the start of this forum.
In the summer of 2007 I was on holiday in Switzerland. I had taken my laptop computer with me to do some Videopac programming. I didn't have internet access on it there. After a few days the power supply of it died (and so did the main fuse of the house). I've tried to get a new power supply in Switzerland, but I didn't succeed. On my mobile phone I did have internet access, so I wanted to check the new messages on the english Videopac forum. But the forum didn't exist anymore! I had no idea what happened, so I sent some emails to other forum members. Just in time to find out that Robbert had started a new forum. I think I was the third forum member that registered. I've contacted other Videopac collectors to let them know that there was a new Videopac forum.
Much later I found out that using internet on my phone back then had costed the company that I worked for a lot of money. Luckily I didn't have to pay it. But I was very glad that I was there when this forum was started!

Ha, yes you beat me, I was number 5 to register.

I remember that we were so busy posting new topics in the hidden ebay section, that even now I'm the top topic starter by a considerable margin, even though I hardly post any more!

Good times  :) Thanks Janzl!

Then I thought, "We are saved!"

Thanks Robbert for all effort to keep this place alive.
Thank you all for your participation and support.

Also from me: Congratulations that this forum is still there and alive. Sometimes a little bit silent, but still there for us.

Here we are all protected against the evil next gen. consoles from Sony and Microsoft.  ;)

Congrats!  I've been on board for over 10 years now having signed up a few days after the forum opened I believe.  I love this site and the friendships I've gained over the years.  I'm no where near as active as I once was but still manage check back from time to time.  The work, time, and money you have put into the site is very much appreciated!  :)
