For some of you guys that were still in middle school when Airwarriors came about, here's a little blast to the past.

circa 2000 (back when scrolling text across the top of the page was cool): http://web.archive.org/web/20000229034416/www.airwarriors.com/main.html

circa 2002 (ahh yes, good 'ol Snitz. AW went from being a mainly static site to one that is incredibly dyamic): http://web.archive.org/web/20021125102745/http://www.airwarriors.com/

circa 2003 (a newer improved Snitz!): http://web.archive.org/web/20031130094230/http://www.airwarriors.com/

circa 2004 (vBulletin at last): http://web.archive.org/web/20070525014432rn_1/airwarriors.com/forum/

circa 2010 (new and "improved" vBulletin): http://www.airwarriors.com/forum/forum.php

+1 And a few weren't even out of grade school or whatever it's called these days!

circa 2000
So we're looking at 10 years of AW! So where's the celebratory banner?

God...does it mean I'm old if I remember way back when???
Good question, but from perspective of those of us already retired 10 years ago, we see you as being of age of maturity for 10 years, which is a good thing.

Ten years ago rec.aviation.military.naval was still ticking along on usenet, but beginning to wind down and with nowhere near the volume AW has today. It was a "non-binary" newsgroup (no pictures... oh the horror!) but it was still plenty good enough in the 1990s for any and all manner of participants from retired BTDTs, active duty, aspiring grasshoppers, and all-around fans of naval air. What a great age we live in!

Nerd Alert! Anyone here ever dial into a BBS?

<------ Nerd
Why yes I have... On a 1200 baud modem that was the fastest thing available at the time, using a CPM Televideo machine with a supersize 10MB hard drive and 5 1/4" floppies. State of the art stuff. Oh, and I had a Mansmann-Talley dot matrix printer thet weighed about 30 pounds. :icon_tong

I downloaded the original Wolf 3D shareware from a dial in BBS back in the day. 1200 Baud external modem I think. I had to be <10 at the time. Good times.

Little did Dad know what he was getting into when he bought the first computer I owned, a crappy Timex Sinclair 1000... I pretty much stopped doing anything that didn't involve computers in those days... My two buddies and I would hang out, write code, war dial, etc... Both of them work for Microsoft now. Me, I'm still just a dabbling geek. I'm looking forward to getting the Android based iPad knockoff that I just picked up from eBay for $100. Gotta love the gadget shops of Schenzen, China...

Ten years ago I was all ramped up about Y2K. I had my stash of food, and barrels of water and even had a gas tank put on the property. My, how things do change.
