Yeah, there was old forum (one of those really old fashioned layouts suitable for dial up Internet).

I was on there from around 2001, then signed up to this one the day they moved.
Wow, 15 years. Do you anyone who predates that? When did the old forum start up?

I think most of the February 2004 users were on the old board. One morning when I tried to log on it sent me here and told me to sign up, and there wasn't that many people on the old board.

I was actually the first one to start a thread in the strings section (the price of natural gut being ridiculously expensive over here compared to America, if I recall!).

As for when the old board started, I'm not entirely sure. I read it for quite a while before signing up so I'm guessing it was around for a few years prior to that, at least.

Nostradamas was a Great forecaster in the middle ages and you have NO clue comparing him to Federer who is GOAT tennis player................................
Fedace was a legendary poster from TW's strong era. He was edumicated at Standford, that West Coast university offering majors in Alleyways Sexual Misconduct and Begging For Mercy; minor fields of study include The Physics of High Diving from Tall Bridges. Sorry you didn't do so well in the latter.:eek:

Apparently if you copy and paste that under Dutch in Google translate, it comes out in perfect English.

Do you remember the URL? If so, I can access it by using my time machine. Not kidding, what was the URL?

You have a time machine and plan on using it to read the old TW forum? I'd say you need to think bigger ;)

talk.tennis-warehouse.com

That was the url I believe. I think they closed it down around '06, but there might be bits still out there.

Anyone else?
Still here. . So far, so good, So Bad. ;)


Yup...whatever happened to that guy Rickson ? I miss him.
He's selling Western Grips : ) . Fun guy, and cuddly as a teddy bear..​




Dunno. Megace disappeared around the same time Fedace disappeared.
As stringertom mentioned, Meg dropped by last week for a chat in the "Is this a strong TT era?" thread. . Still doing well and playing tennis.​
