Oh no not the elders. Some folks thought too highly of themselves and coined the term “Forum Elders”. I pretty much laugh every time I hear that now.
LOL, as a newer member (2006) I remember some of these threads!
I have taken a couple of breaks from the forum over the years, but do honestly appreciate Rich hosting this place for all of us to get together.
I don't have any experience on the IT side or hosting, but I do remember my first "real" computer, a Zenith 'laptop', that I bought in 1987(?) for $1800 at a student discount while in grad school. I remember not being concerned about the memory, because it had 20 Mb, and who could ever need more than that!
