That DOES bring back memories... wow it's been years since i've seen photobucket!

It weirds me out that TPU has been here long enough for lifetime members to be passing away. I feel old.

I'm honoured that people are waiting on me for things like this but seriously there's no need :) If anyone here can arrange and donate something without me, then please do :) Life sometimes gets in the way at the best of times and with being in different time zones and so on, things aren't really so easy to sort out there and then :)

If we can introduce more crunchers to our team with word of mouth and giveaway's like this, I think any person signing up to a team like ours wouldn't find a better home :)

I sadly never 'met' the gent that @stinger608 posted up, but I'm sure heck like most people on here would have had a great time getting to know and crunching with someone like him :)

Thank you @thebluebumblebee :) I think some might call it being stupid or get a grip or arrange your time better but sometimes things no matter how hard you try always have a tendency to go sideways :laugh: I can remember countless times of having to put Sophia down at 2am then trying to update threads... Never a good idea but the aftermath is damn funny :D :D

Still, anyone willing to put anything up for donation, link it to this thread, get a list of names, lets give it a set amount of time for the competition to be open and lets get to it!! :) If I can help, I will do my best to help!! :) I think the last giveaway we did was the servers I was able to give to @blobster21 :) Was a little while ago, back in March 2020.... Here 'tis!! :D

I'm kind of bumping this thread, but also would like followers to take a look at this thread that @neatfeatguy posted yesterday:


This is for a really great cause and I thought it might get more attention posting the TPU link here in this thread.

Oh yeah, his passing was a massive loss to us all.

Always so kind and helpful to everyone, including me. I had many private conversations with him where he'd freely give me very good advice regarding TPU and life in general.

He also asked me once to help write his CV as he was applying for a job which I gladly did. Then he got sick with cancer and never made it. It was horrible to watch him fade away like that. RIP Kreij. :(

Feels so sad that here was a great guy who has died and I just don't remember him, probably just posted on different threads than me. Even being an atheist, may my prayers be with him.

I hope that we all stay safe and alive, I would miss ya guys if we would have a similar loss.

The event I was hoping to build a computer for to donate fell through, so if anyone wants to spearhead a PC giveaway here I could offer up the RTX 3050 as a GPU for the build.
