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.
Ne tirez pas sur le administrator!

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.

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!  :)
