in General Discussion edited January 2014
I think Apple Insider is the best apple related forums.

And an all round great site. Everything is nicely laid out, and the grey colors lend for easy reading and a pleasent expirence. Easy to use and easy to find things or topics!



I say three cheers for Apple Insider, and to the administrators who keep all running smoothly! This is your chance to big up those anonymous guys and gals who do nice job.

    AppleInsider goes great with coffee.

    He left during the big split and was later killed in a car accident, I think.

    I never heard anything about him being killed...and his band's website doesn't seem to support that notion either.



    Jeez, man. Don't say stuff like that.

    I thought he was around here for longer than the split? I remember him answering questions long after the split...



    anyway, I miss him too. He was a cool dude.

    These boards have operated for several years. Years ago, before the iMac, a small group of us gathered here to discuss the Mac. This was long before the boards strayed beyond the Mac. We had a live chat room then that was usually empty, but full during Apple events. I recall one of the keynotes when someone was reporting into that chat room live from the keynote. We debated the first imacs and were shocked at the Blue G3s. We though apple had lost its mind with those. We anticipated the iBook, codenamed P1. Mac haters visited us. Some of them were knowledgeable, like a guy named PeterB. Others were Mac-hating trolls, like windman. We spent alot of time fighting over Mac vs. PC. It was a different time. These boards were out of control when Mark and Goatie were brought tin as the first Mods. The boards were tamed and have prospered. A woman named Kate was one of the few confirmed woman ever to enter here. There was an old bloke known as the installer, a German I think. These boards followed the rebirth of Apple from the pit it was in to what it is today. Long live AI.

    You sure you're not confusing him with LoCash?

    Indeed. I was. And now for the little-used, but very necessary...







    Now you see why my signature is what it is.

    The Split?



    Why am I not told about these things?



    Where was my memo?



    Split? What split?

    There was much displeasure in the way this site was run. A group of moderators/administrators/members fomented a move to a new site, but events precipitated it before the site was completely ready... In any event there is another apple related forum that was created by these moderators/administrators... It is loosely associated with ThinkSecret.

    It was extremely traumatic and confusing, as internet drama goes.



    I for one am still a little bummed about the dispersion of energies.



    However, I can proudly attest that AI has a much crankier clientele, god bless us.



    The other guys think bickering, and especially bickering about politics, is a bad thing.



    Go figure.

    Many of us ANers are also surreptitiously AIAOers...



    We can only take so much bickering...

    Now, having said that, will for the love of God somebody post something in the Glaucoma Hymn thread in AO? For the betterment of these boards! On account of it's amusing and possibly the work of a troubled mind!



    I'm starting to think I must have imagined the whole thing.
