    Pfft when you have posters that can recall John and James, Mrs LePont, Jesus4U, and the rampaging Katie then you're talking old faces.

    Has the database been cleared of old threads? Trying to find one a member named BeachBum raised in here back in the dim dark ages when dinosaurs and C++ walked the earth

    Actually pre-historic means "before written history".

    C++ programmers will dismiss you as a cretinous simpleton for your inability to keep track of pointers chained 6 levels deep and Java programmers will pillory you for buying into the evils of Microsoft. Meanwhile C# programmers will get paid just a little bit more than you for writing exactly the same code and VB6 programmers will continue to whitter on about "footprints". - FunkyDexter

    I learned VB6 (1999) and C# (2003 onwards) on VBF. Had it not been for VBForums.com I'd have made nothing of my life by now. Oh wait.

    It amuses me greatly that VBF still has the Doomsharp forum. Now that was a fun project.

    That is what I figured. I don't remember learning that in school... Always went with what sounded correct.

    Re: The State of VBForums

    That reminds me of the time I tried cheese making. I was trying to get a particularly sharp cheddar, as those are pretty interesting. Things were going pretty well up until the time I tried it out for the first time. My first indication that something was wrong when the knife cut it way too easily, and way too messily. In fact, the cheese was kind of soft and creamy. The taste was anything but sharp, too. In fact, it was quite mild and a bit sweet. In horror, I exclaimed, "Oh God, I've created...a meunster!!!"

    You have to wonder if that's the most common expression uttered by new fathers upon seeing their children in a certain town in Germany, too.
