Eight months later, we outgrew that over-stressed Pentium box, and are now on a hot-rod Dual-Xeon machine.


Remember that 'hot-rod,' anyone? If the board was on a souped-up car then, I reckon it's now strapped to a few Jupiter-Cs.

1 million unique user sessions in September 2004, I read somewhere among the cobwebs. I wonder how this compares to today?

With 61, 589 registered members as of now, this quote here makes me chuckle as well:

I see on the front page that you've added almost 600 members just in the last 7 days. At that rate, there should be more than 25,000 members in the next couple of months.

It's interesting, going through the ancient posts. You come across some real nuggets.

Hows this? First ever paid ad for ATS:

NEW ATS CHAT UP AND RUNNING

We have a new high-performance chat application hosted on a separate dedicated server from the ATS website.


Ahh . . . good ol' days.

An ATS CD. Now there's a random idea.

AboveTopSecret.com CD-ROM v2.0

After the huge success of the first AboveTopSecret.com Special Edition CD-ROM, I am currently starting preliminary work on a much greater and grander "CD-ROM v2.0" for release later in the year.

Coming soon to ATS:

Collaborative Member PODcasts!


We're working on what could very well be an important "next stop" in the evolution of information rich online communities such as ATS: member-drive collaborative PODcasts.

A PODcast is essentially an RSS news feed, with attached MP3 file that can be transfered to a digital music player (or played on your computer).

Jeez, its absolutely amazing just how far this place (people included) has come over just a few years. Pity I wasn't here to watch it while it happened.


Anyways, if you want to add to this, please do!! There's heaps more out there; like more (yes more!) posts by Springer and Gray absolutely full of things they wouldn't be caught dead doing nowadays. Pity SO's such a goodiegoodie⇔∂

Oh man, sleeeep, that actually took effort . . . and slightly reminded me of embarrassing baby photos!


¬¬¬¬

I liked that title very much.

I hate to sound ignorant, but is there anyway to pull real old threads out?
Is there a way to look at them?
I've tried, but havent been able to. I mean when ATS first started.

Can we have a glimpse at our past just for fun???

Thank you, DG
