Yeah, I remember him. Pretty intelligent guy. His greatest quality was that he owned the same monitor as me - the venerable Samsung 950p (not the "b")

I remember GUTB - what a clown. But an interesting clown nonetheless.

I also remember Paulson getting banned ... and then coming back. Wasn't he one of the original great "neffers"? I vaguely remembering that this was part of the reason he was banned and put on ice 'til he cooled down.

GUTB was slightly "before" my OT days, i didnt frequent here until a few months after the new forums came up (fusetalk)... the nowheremom "death" was slightly before my OT days by like a week... the GUTB incidents were about when i came on.

i talked to crysla (nekkid princess) a few weeks ago, briefly.

Help me out here: Did a guy named Modus hang here a while? If he did, he entertained me for hours with his long rants about one thing or another. Semi-intelligent if long winded threads were a hoot!

BTW I've probably been here since '97??? Not too sure.


Peace

Legion posted the classic anti-Overclocking rant of all time back in '98 before the Non Hardware General Forum was called Off-Topic. It probably wouldn't make much sense now since Overclocking is so easy but back in the day when you kind of had to have a clue his rant hit the nail on the head.

Hmm, guess it's just my memory that sucks, and I still hung out quite a bit in general non-hw when it was created...

Oh well...

Yes, Modus was big on non-partitioning. He argued that partitioning wasn't necessary if you had decent organizational skills and that partitioning was for those who couldn't figure it out. Kinda like arguing that you only needed one pair of shoes to do everything rather than have a couple of different pairs for different purposes. He had some good points ... but it seemed apparent that he took it a bit personally that many others didn't subscribe to his philosopy wholly and argued with much resilience.

He used to also deal in parts/products (selling).


Hey, what happened to the guy that coined the term

"is suck"? Asian guy or something like that for which a slight language barrier coined the term rather than the usual "sucks".

That was back in 1999 or so.

That was RipRidah. There was a thread in HD about someone having trouble getting a price match or a coupon or something from Staples. His reply was the immortal words "Staples is suck."

You are correct about the latter half. Supposedly she posted the name and street address of one of the Anandtech Moderators. Well, that's what she was accused of anyway. I checked. She didn't.

But oh well. She's happy now. :)
Her husband posted porno shots of her on the web. Very nasty (nasty as in losing your lunch nasty) Some women just shouldn't be seen in the nude.:(
Are you sure it was him? I was told that she did it and blamed it on him to save her dignity.
No I'm not sure it was him. I was giving her the benefit of the doubt because I couldn't imagine anyone who looked like that purposely posting such pictures on the net. They call her the Flour Princess for a reason you know!

Hrmm pics? To confirm :D

Hm. Can't find a pm thingie here. Oh well. You can send me a message to cougarmadcat@yahoo.com. I usually check that about every day. When I am work I can take a peek on my breaks. Lotsa fun there.

Wasn't Modus most well known for his support of Winmodems vs. Hardware modems? I think I remember him and Red Dawn having a rather long winded debate on the subject... Not that Red Dawn would ever be part of such a thing... :)

Remember the 'is suck' as well, probably the longest running 'anandtech speak' term of all time.... it became annoying as hell, but still not as bad as 'all your base are belong to us'....

and the Hitachi monitor/buy.com fiasco..... coining such phrases as 'wounded monitor children' and talking of driving down I-5 and storming the walls of buy.com.... heh... hate to admit I was in the middle of that one....

Red wasn't the only one debating Modus on winmodems. ;)

I always wondered what Carolyn got out of the buy.com settlement. I wonder if there is a time limit on the NDAs.


I must admit that I enjoy seeing some of the old names popping up again. It brings back some pleasent memories.

Yeah I remember that little fart from Firingsquad. I didn't know of AT forums back then. Always a moron, I had humongous battles with him. I never put him down on Firingsquad though we debated, but others found it just easier to flame him LOL. Good times... and DailyRadar.com was still around...awww
