MacTalk member check-in thread


#1

Thought I would make a thread for MacTalk members to check-in - in particular for members who are using a different username here.

My username is the same - Erwin. Been a member of MacTalk for over 10 years, but the time has finally come to move on. Don’t really visit any other Mac/Apple forums besides lurking at Whirlpool (same username there).

How about you?


Thanks for allowing me to join

I joined Mactalk in 2008. I loved the podcasts. Still have all of them. Of course I listen to Reckoner now. My user name is the same.


#3

Was Goodbye over on the other side - now known by my initials!


#4

I’m the same here as I was at MacTalk. I had an earlier MacTalk user name in the early days, but am have been going by Changa for awhile.


#5

How will we have Goodbye’s Good Buys now?


#6

Same username as before :smile:


#7

In my old days of modding Mactalk I was halfgoon, but now I’m a real person! Also not as obnoxious (probably).


#8

same name as mactalk, though different in most other places :slight_smile:


#9

ibarnett, same username as on the “dark side”


#10

Same username in MacTalk except I dropped the ‘86’… :smile:


#11

Begin migration oldUser=mmulhern
End migration newUser-Jongleur

Still enjoying all things retro, especially those using a 6502


#12

Think my username was Angus or AngusG. Best part was the podcasts Anthony and Sean (on Can Touch This) were hilarious.


#13

My name is the same… Avatar too… in most forums, forever…

Am I a creature of habit or just too lazy to change?


#14

Hi, from MacRowdy at MacTalk.

I usually try to join forums as Rowdy (or rowdy) but that name was taken on MacTalk.

Not so on AppleTalk mwahahaha.

I don’t post that much here, spending more time on another technology forum, but it’s good to know the Aussie Apple community is still alive and well.


#15

gehenna as usual :smile:

Just posted what is possibly my last post on MacTalk encouraging users to install and run an Ad Blocker when visiting the site. After nearly 5550 posts I never thought it would end like that.


#16

but that’s half your charm!


#17

I think I stopped around the same time Benny stopped doing the morning news.


#18

I was Iain Best over at Mactalk (was arghdee prior to changing to my full name when I started writing articles for the front page)


#19

I joined MacTalk as Steeley back in 2005 which was AppleTalk back then. Now, to take the ferry cost a nickel, and in those days, nickels had pictures of bumblebees on 'em. Give me five bees for a quarter, you’d say…

This probably goes without saying, but whoever it was that borrowed my Snow Leopord/iWork 09/iLife 09 box set from MacTalk a year or two ago: I never bothered chasing you for it because I have absolutely no use for it. Consider it a gift from me to you :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
