Well I'm here since 2004 and in February it will be 11 years.

A good place to visit for answers to ones computer questions. At age 73 I still have interest in computers up to the point of just wanting to be able to fix what ever problems develop with mine since I have know one else to help me. I visit here often even though it may be only to read what others have to say.

Some times I put in my Image

Yes been here long enough to notice that some no longer visit for what ever the reason. Having a Smart Phone and or Tablet Forum may bring additional interest into The Mother Board website along with some possibly needed advertising revenue.

At the top of the main Forum page, to the right, is a tool tip for "members". If anyone wants to go through 2,300 plus pages to note the oldest active members, then have at it.
A lot of members are inactive, due to family matters or work habits.. or changing times.
True, the popularity of 'smart' phones and portable tablets has taken computing to a new game stage.

The old-fashioned ways of "build it yourself" are no longer a favored route. Laptops have improved greatly in their performance and use time. But the plugged-in desktop PC will still be in use for years to come.
I am still active with keeping my systems in good form.. but not ecstatic about the "new" OS versions. But will have to accept them.
F@H.. to solve mankind's maladies.. in our lifetimes!

memberlist.php?g=162313&mode=group&sk=c&sd=a#memberlist

I have to goto page 1028 of those pages to find myself.
looks like the board really started accruing large numbers around oct 2002.

it would be cool to have a list like this that either only includes ranked members, or some minimum amount of posts, or recent activity.
you can sort by posts, and you'll see most current members ranked up near the top.

there's a similar way to sort by date joined the folding team.

pretty much learned everything I know about computers in my early days thru this board, mobo.org has been vedy vedy gud to me!
parlayed that knowledge into a job where I switched fields from video production to pure computer manufacturing. no other schooling needed.

I joined just after my Birthday in 2003, so 12 years ago? Thats back in the AthlonXP days. First Hotrod MoBo I purchased was an Asus A7V133, damn finicky on memory, but can still hit the button and it will come up and run. A few have me beat, but I moved to Laptops and http://forum.thinkpads.com/ . By far the best laptops built that I have ever torn apart. They are engineered to be worked on and repaired, much like the build it yourself of the wild west days.
