Oh well I guess we'll just have to soldier on sans PB. Don't think there'll be much support for my old dust gathering P2 Platinum 2010 even if it is in mint.

Agree with you there Chelle. T'was a good forum and I picked up lots of info from the peeps when I was finding my way into PCs. Had a lot of laffs too even if there was the odd t***t.

i had most of my laughs at the expense of those twats.  Chris was one as i recall, stroppy little git kicking off cos he couldnt find drivers for his rebadged camera  :lol:

and Tristian, he was a riot  :lol:

and the enormous success of the audio dream  :lol:

it was xmas when i joined and it was shut, fortunately there was a MINCE link in one of your links, maybe Richards or Petes and that took me to Richards forum  where i found a bunch of old reprobates  :lol: .  PBF was my first forum and Richards got me addicted.  that was nearly 10 years ago.  makes me quite sad that PBF is gone now, reminds me of those we've lost along the way.

does V know about this place Chris?

I think V knows Chelle ;-) I imported his account over from the old place, but he's not been on as yet ;-)
PBF was good times. Remember that guy on holiday in the Switzerland, who was giving Edward66 abuse. I traced him to his hotel via IP and frightened seven bells out of him when I also told him his home address LMAO.
Oh and the DSG hacker I traced and got him sacked, and then published the apology DSG head quarters sent me :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

Tristain was a real scream, and so easy to wind up LOL
Believe it or not, I still have the last Emails from Ken, and also the ones from Pete :cry:
Sure was good times on there ;-)

i still have Petes mobile number on my phone.  got a new number recently but still put Petes on it.

Tristian wasnt so bad in the end, just young.  the audio dream xmas was hilarious though, so many whingers in such a small place :lol:

Think we still have the last laugh 'cos now all PB buyers have got is 'The Tech Guys' Whom I suspect all came from the same village where they took it in turns to be 'Idiot'. I think their job sheets have only one sentence on it.... 'Re-format'. 'That'll be £30 please.'

I had forgotten the Audiodream xmas. Mind you, I forget most things nowadays.
I now remember that Chris provided a helluva lot more info than PB did. However, some of the questions asked were soooo stupid.

i also remember being really surprised at what a big man Pete was cos i'd imagined him, from that pic, to be my dads size and build (my dad is 5"6 ) but he was a big lad.

I'm sorry Chelle, I lost the one of Bob when the PB totally crashed. I couldn't retrieve anything and had to rely on Chris's small store of pictures.
