    These forums or forums in general?

    I used to post on some other ones back in 1998 :0 They were also called 'Bulletin Boards' back then!
    Oh yeahh I remember that.

    For a real window on the past, check out the usenet archive, going back to 1981.

    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?
    It was UK-learning.net

    Best one I've seen so far is on the usenet archive:

    Any opinions on the new Commodore 64 computer. I've seen it and it
    looks pretty neat.
    (i) it comes with 64K of memory standard
    (ii) in highest graphics resolution it has 320 X 200 pixels.
    In lower resolutions you can display 16 colors
    simultaneously, but the number of simultaneous colors
    goes down with increased resolution.
    (iii) it uses a version of sprite graphics
    (iv) it has a cheap plug in telephone modem (only 40 characters
    per row)
    (v) it uses 6510 (like 6502 but with extra I/O ports) and will
    have a plug-in Z80 option.
    (vi) it has a synthesizer built in with three voices, each can
    play over 9 octaves in a variety of waveforms with different
    attacks, decays, etc.
    (vii) it lists for $595 but can be bought for less (at American
    of Madison, for example!). Magazines were offering it
    for as little as $479 but are not coming thru. It seems
    that Commodore has forbidden mail order firms from
    dealing in the 64.
    (viii) it uses the same Microsoft BASIC as the PET. They say
    they will have Pascal for it soon.
