Guys

I feel like that guy from 28 Days Later, walking through a deserted, abandoned London.

I miss this place and everything in it. I miss the the friends we made, the systems we made (and promptly fritzed by going one step too far). I miss the first and last Camp AOA. I miss the grand debates where a much younger and more certain me took on your whole ****ing continent, and was proven right by history. But not so much about God, who is still a myth... allegedly.

So I come back and see cloasters as the poor old curator of the abandoned museum, welcoming every tourist that just pops in to use the toilet and occasionally rattling 'round a favoured exhibit.

Please - do yourselves a favour. Close these boards to new registrations. Its time has passed and it's not coming back.

My email address hasn't changed - PM me on here and it'll be delivered. Love to you all!

Hey Kaitain!

You're right that overclocking as an art has passed.

Come by GamersOnLinux. Some of the old gang is still there.

Hi all

This is where I creep in sheepishly and admit that I don't actually remember starting this thread. I'd been at a colleague's leaving party and...

Yeah. Um. Sorry about the tone of it. I'm frankly amazed I could log in at all! Thanks for the PM, cloasters

Sure I'll take a quick peak at gamersonlinux - I think my 6 year old laptop might just about be able to run one or two older titles, though Kerbal Space Program caused it to overheat and die with alarming regularity!

Hey Kaitain, you have been missed. Be sure to hang out whenever you're free at the other site: you'll fit right in.

Plenty of philosophical discussions still going on, now that Daniel is back at the peak of his powers.

OK. That actually gave me a good laugh. Been forever. If that was "impaired" writing I am impressed for sure. Well done.

Sam! Sheesh, man. Come and say hello on the new site.

Doesn't matter if you are a Linux guy or not. You are missed.

Howdy Allan!
It's great to see you on the old board! I hope you and your family are very well!
Daniel ~ started a new web site about three years ago, I'm remiss in my duty to let you know about it. My very bad!

It is: GamersOnLinux.com . Very few folks (except Dan ~, of course) bother to overclock these days, because CPU's right out of the box are rather impressive. Finally.

GamersOnLinux.com welcomes all, especially old users from AOA. You don't have to be a Linux user to post there.

Be very well!

I missed this post!

It's never easy saying goodbye to something that so many have cherished Yet as K. points out, if we do not say it, time passes us by.

My feeling is that we have created an opportunity with GOL.
A chance for all of us, as many of us as wish to to continue our friendships.

.In short AOA's time has passed. It was probably the best time of my life.

But as they say...this to will pass.
See you all in GOL Forums at lest that is my fond hope.":O}

You were the most excellent tip-top poster AOA ever had, Dan ~. My word, I still remember how you gave your all to start our site. And you kept its heart and soul in place for many years. Your enthusiasm for overclocking hasn't waned after all these years. Yes, good people, Daniel STILL overclocks! And uses liquid cooling!

Most folks haven't taken on all of that bother for quite a few years, so we faded into the past. Few of us post here nowadays. What can I say, I'm sentimental about AOA.

Believe it or not for those that don't recall, Dan ~ put his all into starting a brand new web site about four years ago. It centers on Linux, yet all are welcome there.

GamersOnLinux

Hope to see you there!

My Gosh! it's been 4 years!

" Bucky be bold
Make new friends
but keep the old
One is silver
the other is Gold"

GOL is all about Gaming in Linux.

But we talk about everything and anything that interests us.

In this case "US" might well mean you! ":O}

"Bucky...Be Bold"!

come by us and say hello!

It's good to hear from you, Aedan! Perhaps I'm too attached to this history of all of our efforts. Yes, we're hitting on one and a half cylinders most of the time. Being immodest I think I'm most of one of those cylinders much of the time.

Do you still work for Blackberry?

Yup, I still work for BlackBerry doing all sorts of things. Mostly hitting things with a big hammer though... one of those things I do best.
