I found a site you can look at old websites and found our site right before it was hacked last year. Click on memberlist at the top and you can see your post count if you are into that. :D

Cool....too bad we can't go back and read the old posts. I long for those days of rationality with VOR and Gary.

Wow...I was closing in on 1000 posts there. The 95 or so that I have now seems pretty pathetic relatively.

Seriously Chris. You have become a real slacker or actually gotten a life.

I think VOR and Gary were on the first board. I wonder if that one is floating around in cyberspace?

I had email contact with Van until a few years back. I know his wife Polly was having some health problems, and suddenly I never heard from him again, unfortunately. Van, if you're still out there, check in with us, por favor.

Also, Buck and A are missed. Both Buck and GP gave up on the Bucs, I don't know what happened to A.

As for the old address, I'm going off of memory, but I believe it was sportsonly.com/a/10514. The numbers at the end might be wrong, I haven't had to call that one up in a while.

Glad I'm not the only one. Sometimes, autism has its perks. The wife can't believe I know my drivers license #, credit card #'s etc. off by heart. And if you would have asked me, I would have said there was no way I would remember the website that I hadn't been to in at least 5 years.

Wow. And we were right, Chris.

Here is the last archive they had before the new board.

This is excellent. Too bad the Wayback Machine did not archive everything on the old board. No access to the great discussions we had pre-Huntington.

Gotta say though, the new format is much better than the old one. Guess there's one thing we can thank the hackers for.

EDIT: Wow, I had over 3700 posts on the old board. I must be slacking on this one.

I wish I could defend myself, but I noticed the same thing. I am going to have to work on my guilty plea ...

Seeing the 'really' old board made me think...when did that first start? I can't remember when I first started posting, but I had been on the board for a few months when my youngest was born and I posted a week later that the Bucs hadn't lost since she came into the world. Too bad that didn't keep up....since it was 10 years ago this past May. I think that I got on the offseason prior to that 98-99. I remember getting excited over the pick up of a fourth OF for a pitcher that I thought was going to be the next great Pirate OFer. Brian Giles? No, I was enamored with the acquisition of Brant Brown. Yikes! What the hell was I thinking???? :lol:
