Ah I remember the name pincho. I've been around for over 20 years on one forum or another. I think I was on the original darkbasic forum before I found RGT.

Heh nice one, good score. I was on the grey forums very briefly, then RGT. Haven’t been here in a while but drop in occasionally.

I've been on here for 16 years! I think this is my first post in over three years, but I do check in occasionally over the years.

I just realized I'm gonna turn 40 when I hit 20 years on this forum. Literally half my life has been on here. I should get like a lifetime achievement award or something!

I rarely post these days, but every once in a while it's fun to pop in here and see some old names still around.

Amazing these forums are still here, and it's an archive of my programming journey. Happy to see TGC staying strong all these years!

Right? I can think of several programming sites I've been a part of over the years and very few are still around. I used to be on flipcode all the time back in the day, sad they went away a long time ago (but it is archived at least)
