    @Pearlsaber --- love your avatar pic -- that a cool looking saber. Do you actually own that hilt? Love the detail and the uniqueness of the color.

    Now I find the idea of Episode X being annouced in 2032 -- a bit odd (please note I am teasing) because Disney is boasting that they will deliver #8 in 2017 and #9 in 2019 -- they claim they can do one once every 2 years so by 2032 they will be on Ep#15 or will at least have produced 9 films (some of those may be the stand alones they are rumoring).

    That trailer was a mind bender at the time. Obviously fake but exciting and took what felt like hours to buffer. I started in 1999 and signed upto the boards but never used them very often as I was using the official Star Wars site more at the time. Reflective times :)

    Thank you, @Gemma. It is inspired by a Ralph McQuarrie concept piece that depicted a stormtrooper with a lightsaber. Below is said piece.

    Not sure, but we did celebrate it, so there should be some threads about it...

    I don't even believe I owned a computer in 1998...
    Back then, computers were still something magical.

    We bought a computer in '98 complete with interwebs, a working printer, and Myst games!

    OK, technically I am not in the least qualified to post on this thread seeing as I only joined a little over a week ago, but I can't resist...

    Hooray for 90s computers with Myst games! I was the owner of one myself, and, as pathetic as it probably is to say this, they are still among my favorite games out there.

    I actually didn't start really frequenting a lot of websites untill 2003. My first account on a forums was in 2004 on Newgrounds. But yeah i don't think i had An internet connection until 2002 or so. Granted i was 11 in 02. I did sign up for youtube less then a year after it started though...

    My 1st computer came as a Christmas gift in '98.... I kind of regret not registering in the UBB era. :p

    I started using the computer in '03. Played Civilization III, The Curse of Monkey Island, Escape from Monkey Island, Riven: The Sequel to Myst, and the great Grim Fandango. Those were the days.

    I remember those games. Not played all of them, but they are classics.

    I played PC* games briefly back in the day, so briefly that I forget which games they were. :p



    *Aside from Oregon Trail when I was in elementary school ('92-'97) of course.
