Hello everyone!

I was looking around the Internet Archive and I found this BC page dated October 23, 2006 | 3:05 PM.

http://web.archive.org/web/20061023200315/...ter.com/forums/

The Windows Vista forum was still named "Windows Vista Beta". The Board Statistics is also interesting.

I'll explore the archived HJT forum to see what were the malware problems then.

And for those of you who have been around a while, here's a nice chronology. And maybe just a peek into our past for you newer members.

bleepingcomputer.com was created on: January 26 2004. It was a work in progress and started as a hobby to help family and friends. Who knew..... :thumbsup:

EDIT: I started as a regular member and had the honor of being selected the very first Advisor, and as they say the rest is history. It's been my honor to be a part of the Bleeping Computer Staff family.

I still miss the fun and games forum. I was the champion of Penguin Shot, and I liked the Mahjongg and Battleship. The computer slang thing too.. I remember that.

He probably asked questions all over the site and Grinler answered all of his questions. I wonder if he's still active today.

There was a Fun and Games forum? What happened to it? Is it different from today's Forum Games forum?

yes there was fun and games here LOL.. it was a forum with games like Battleship.. and like I said mahjongg.. it was like an arcade and we had some good contests going. There were a few Penguin games. Was a lot of fun but it created a security vulnerability, so it had to go.

Well, that explains it :thumbsup:
