I do wonder sometimes, considering the advancements in our experience and understanding, how relevant the threads from 10+ years ago are to today's standards. I'm sure it's possible that some of the information, that was commonplace back then, is rendered obsolete today.
i agree,
ideas and testing and results have changed over time
what i do like is everyone has an opinion on making power
and if you have data to support your opinion it makes it even better,
i like the notion - there is more than one way to bake a cak

He who deletes history has no way to learn from the past ((someone else's) mistakes or experience)... :wink:

Some is, for sure.

I use Google to search out threads here. Type a phrase into Google with “” surrounding it, add a username (ex: udharold), and then type “speedtalk”. Lists of good stuff pops up.

To have Google search ONLY on Speedtalk, use Google's SITE-function in your search; SITE:speedtalk.com/forum, followed by what you like to find, like;

SITE:speedtalk.com/forum "ANYTHING GOOD"

The search-function in phpBB-forums is kinda limited and it would be better if the current search in the forumheader got replaced by a Google Search field which would do the same as mentioned above.

Another interesting thing to do, at least for me, is to look at your own posts and see if your views have changed over the years. I went back to 2006 and stayed up most of the night because you get to look at the whole post on that subject. There were very informative people on then as there are now and there were people who were kicked off the site with good cause. I find it amazing how some people have grown those huge testicles when they can hide behind the keyboard. They think that you'll never see them face to face and when you see them at PRI, the drags, in airports etc its comical. Anyway, do yourself a favor and go back a few years, the basics were there but maybe a little more refined today.

Edvanced, High Ve...Mike Theroux, The "Strokers", Darin, Chris Uratchko, occasionally Ron Winterhoff, Beth, a lot more I cant think of off the top of my head. The good ole pre-advertising days. Has capitalism destroyed Speedtalk…. :lol:
