    The name is similar.. but thats where the similarities end! With so many members theres naturally lots of newcomers, so this club is for the "old folks" of TPU where we can get nostalgic over age old threads here at TPU and hardware "long forgotten", as well as just generally being somewhere for more "senior" members to hang out.

    Heres how the "old folks" club works:

    - You need to of been a member of TPU for at least 2 years
    OR
    - Have over 5000 posts

    Thats it! :D

    Interesting thread, hell I'll join up! I've seen TPU change a ton since I joined up, and the years before when I just lurked and read the articles/reviews. I joined because of Dolf's x850pro CD Flash utility that helped me mod my 850pro to an 850xt pe, had to thank him. And it's been an interesting ride ever since, definately glad I joined up here.

    I remember joining back in the day...wtf8269 introduced me to this place, and starting out i was here to follow things. I joined roughly around the time dual cores were becoming the norm and quad cores were just coming out. but not until about mid 2007 i really started posting and helping. been fun ever since though :) and cant wait for what the future brings

    I too came here for one quick reason (through google)... kinda looked nice so I decide to join so I could post a question.. Since we TPUers are so fast, I had a response before I could change my freaking page :) loved it, and been doing that to others now xD
