Blast from the past

Post by don_ruch » Sat Nov 27, 2021 10:45 pm

Where to start! I haven't been here since this was the InvictaWatchForums.com, renamed BestDamnWatchForum.com not very long after. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the old forum (well old name wise) still came up in a google search and was still active. Brings back a lot of good memories and some bad ones too (mostly good).

20 years later I am right back where I started from. I don't know if any members will remember me from back then(my user name is the same as it was back then), I was just a young pup messing around with BBS software, not knowing what I was doing, but doing it anyway. :D Don't know how the forum continued to work :oops:

I still buy watches now and then, but I don't need to have a new watch coming in the mail everyday like I did. I have grown up from back then and have slowed down to just enjoy the watches I have now. I hope I am welcome and will try my best to be a model forum member. :D. Currently I am on a quartz watch kick and am rocking a Citizen Calbre 2100 Limited Edition watch as my daily wearer. Hope to join in and make a bunch of new memories!

Cool, welcome back, good to see friendly faces in this joint.

Welcome back. Ah, yes, BBS groups. The old days of 9600 baud modems and AOL bills that were more than a car note.

This place used to be called InvictaWatchForums.com?!?





Just revived by the smelling salts.

Yup...the original BDWF was spun out of WUS with that name, and Don was one of the original founders, I believe. Not long after the name, and focus was changed.

Nice to have you back, Don!
