Sorta reminds me way back in the day when i'd dial into a BBS that only had one modem to post things on the message board.

Abercrombie: hahaha... yeah, i'm old. I got my first 2400 baud modem when i was eight... [*cough* geek *cough*]. I still remember getting the latest video game one 1.44mb disk at a time from some board, tying up the dude's modem for like, three days. :P What a waste of time!!

Ah yes, the days of 300 / 1200 / 2400 / 9600bps / 14.4HST / hs-link / os/2 / 360k / 720k disks /telix /telemate /telegard /pcboard... Actually my first real exposure to electronica came in the early 80s with Jean Michelle Jarre and then 1985-1989 with the very popular 'demo' scene in Europe (Finland/Denmark/Germany/Holland especially) that had geeks come together and compete to program the best assembler/machine language (C64) demos accompanied by repetitive electronic music that sounded pretty good for it's time - thanks to the 3-channel SID chip/sound card.

I got my start with BBS' in the 80s, admin'ing a few on the Commodore 64 and then moving to the PC in 1989 where things were a little more interesting...

TA came about specifically because of the annoyance that other sites were at the time - that required you to register in order to download or participate... I wanted something that was free of hassle and BS. The forum started as a basic Bravenet forum for a couple of months in mid 2000 and then I moved to UBB for 6 months and then vBulletin and my own dedicated server (450mhz RAQ3/256mb ram) at the start of 2001.

Here's a screenshot:



...things got real busy after I posted the December 2000 Paul Van Dyk set:

Feb 2000-Jan 2001:



Dec 2000-Nov 2001:


Now of course the site gets a few more visitors, about 1.2 million a month with 50% from North America and 40% from Europe.

That's enough for now
