20 years on the [H] - Well guys it's been awesome, hopefully the [H] forums stick around for decades more! Signed up back in college and never thought I'd be posting this 20yrs later.

I've been to one [H] meetup in Toronto back in 2001 at the Skydome Hard Rock Café where we racked up an enormous bill that consisted mostly of T-Bone steaks and good liquor.

From OC'ing the crap out of Celeron's to now water-cooling, glad to be a part of this [H] community 2 decades later :cool:

Was introduced to the [H] back when water cooling meant junk yard heater core, custom made water blocks and an aquarium pump, and Ars Technica had Hannibal CPU architecture deep dives... Been a regular lurker and then poster on Ars and the [H] ever since.

Anyone remember when the [H]ardForums had a [G]enmay section that detached onto it's own site? Still exisits but absolutely nowhere near what it was back in the day.

I remember a lot of things that have happened on these forums over the years.

Does anyone know if Infinium Labs is going to release their Phantom console soon?
Not if I have anything to do with it. For the record, Tim Roberts is now in prison for a stock scam. His brother committed suicide after the IRS and SEC came after him.

Congrats to you! ALMOST here 20 myself. I was rocking a 300mhz Celeron overclocked to 500mhz on an Abit motherboard back then. I believe starting next year when you are here 20+ years they are giving out Gold Watches and RTX3080's so I'll be good but, sucks to be you.
