I remember signing up to this place sometime around 2001. Fuck me... some 16 years ago. Back then it was hosted on Ezboard. Had a nice lovely dark blue colour scheme and all that (did we ever find out what that music loop was? ; ) It was also the first music forum I signed up to. I was young, and noticeably so (far more jaded now, of course), but I enjoyed the chat. So much so I ventured down to Bedrock on my own and met up with people from here.. and from there never looked back really. Loved the music so much I kept going back for more, and got in to DJing myself, obviously.

Being on Ezboard also made cross board posts nice and easy. Hence why I ended up on the GU Board, Techhouse and quite frankly a ridiculous amount of other forums (Cigargate, anyone?). From those I found even more to grow my clubbing circle.
I have met a ridiculous amount of people, over the years, thanks to this place. Far too many to mention them all personally. A lot of them have become close friends. They all know who they are. When my father died, it was mostly people from here and GU that kept me going, and were there for me when I really needed it. And there's many that disappeared in to the abyss too. Again, far too many of them to mention as well. There's some that still pop up on very rare occasions and it's always great to see an old face amongst the crowd. My apologies to those I fail to recognise straight away. My memory is shockingly poor at the best of times but it usually clicks after a minutes or two.

I did have a few aliases. Can't actually remember most any more tbh (cop out, I know). Digweed's Hair was an obvious one. Kareem Van Fok was a strange little side project that popped up on GU and here from time to time, when I was in a more random mood. I was never one for a malicious alias.

Anyway, that's my, frankly boring, ode to this place and I guess the old boards of yore. But, for me, they wouldn't have happened if not for here. Hence this sentimental, soppy post. And now I'll sit back and await Dermo to tear in to it, one final time. If anyone is still reading, of course.
As long as Digweed is playing you'll still find me front and centre in my own little world. Say hello, why don't you? smile

I want the database deleted.

I've got the key.

Hoping for the release of Spongiform Lifeblood at long last!

Feel free to get in touch with Cox/Hawking and ask for their opinion on the theory.

The nerd in the garage could well be someone living inside a 'parent' simulation. Our simulation could be buried 1000s of layers deep.

It's certainly feasible that, at some point in the future, we create our own simulation of the universe. And if we end up being able to do it, what's to say it hasn't happened before?

It's best just to go with science really isn't it lads? Any cunt can dream up some drug addled delusional nonsense. Could just see Hawkins coming out with some of the shite I've read in here. Haha.
In his best robotic voice " And we are all living in a giant CPU where 1 of their seconds is a millions of our years". Oh really? Time to unplug the cunt guys.

And in one sentence you've shown you do not understand what I wrote at all.

There's no why it was just a chain of events that sciences and physics pretty much explains. All the worlds cleverest people have come to pretty much the same conclusions. And surprisingly it wasnt some beardy cunt creating it all in 7 days from his fluffy cloud.

Science and physics that conform to the rules set up when the universe was created. All the greatest minds have been able to explain what happened seconds after the big bang (provided the theory is correct, of course). But not one can tell you anything about what came before it. We simply do not know.

A guy in fluffy clouds that, for some odd reason, enjoys the human race talking to him all the time, without reply, is a complete nonsense created as a form of populace control. But the idea that there is some 'creator', outside of anything we'll ever be able to measure, as they don't exist in our universe, is not a definite 0 on the probability scale.

What if the universe is a very complex program, running on some computer somewhere? All our physics and laws exist inside that program. Science is measurable because the program has defined rules. We'd never know about it. We'd never know that we are in fact a load of CPU calculations and algorithms.

But what about the universe being billions of years old? Surely the program or computer must crash?
Quite possibly. But again, for all we know this program could run a few hours on that machine. But, inside our program, it feels like an eternity.

So there could be a 'God'. And he could be some speccy nerd running his final year university project. We just don't know. And I'd rather not to be quite honest. If we found cast-iron proof of something like that it'd probably drive you mad.

Heaven could do with a fresh rebranding tbh. At the moment it sounds really fucking dull.
Spend the rest of eternity surrounded by a load of white, drinking water and playing a harp? That can fuck off.

That is sad news. Quite liked his tracks.

Those long winter nights must just fly by.

Giving me a semi, that tbh.

Fuck me, Kev. Have you really got nothing better to do?

Here we go...

Pickles was on here before GU IIRC.

To be honest I've never seen the point of 'spinning' decks on a CDJ and/or controller - Technics tried it, Denon's CD decks had it for a while and various Serato/Traktor controllers feature spinning platters - every single one I've tried I haven't liked - they feel weird - AND I simply don't see the point when you're playing digital music - I get that some people miss the 'one-two-three-wrist-flick' thing when cueing up but seriously, spinning (digital) platters are shit.

It's all downhill from here.

Let's be honest here. From a neutrals POV, that was an thoroughly entertaining game. Feel free to bring up another tie that comes close, on opening day (well aware opening day was Saturday, up to a few years ago. So there may be a few 3pm kicks off with similar scorelines).
As far as Friday night football goes. A great opener.

My plan is to pimp Presto out while we're there to make some money.

Let us not forget that I am actually coordinating your efforts, this coming weekend.

Yeah, Mooch was always going to be a huge car crash, but we wanted a bit more than him going out in the first corner.

I'm liking it. Can it see it being one of those 5am Fabric off-your-nut type tracks, that gets the crowd going.


There we go. Haven't hooked it all up yet as I still have loads of shit to sort out, and may still have to move things around.
But that should keep me occupied for a while.

Nah. I'll put it up on my Patreon site, along with pictures of my arse.

Gone for this

Will get that tomorrow, then that's me done, I think.
