    Hi guys, I was surfing the TSR sites and I looked back on the very first threads posted here in 2001 and they are scary. One thread mentions the new release of flat screen TV's and mobile phones with cameras. I don't know about you but they're kinda eery. Just think about it, the members who posted those threads are grown up now and in jobs they could be in their late 20-30's. Do you think TSR should delete the old posts or keep them for memories.

    Post you views.

    That's not eery.

    What's eery is looking through all the threads to do with University applications from about 2004 seeing all the people gone by who have obviously moved on.

    It's scary to see how our society (new technology) and the education system has moved on so quickly in 7 years. Just think, in the next 10 years, people will look back on our posts and think- what the hell are they on about (etc)

    Did TSR exist beyond 2001 because I heard that the site changed its name- but what the name was before 2001 I don't know. Do you guys?
