The Old Gang (aka be carefull what you post online...)

Postby mattchase » Jun Sat 04, 2005 9:25 am

Was doing a little surfing this morning and happened across some interesting photos...

::: Photos removed - see link below. :::

Ok, a little history behind these. Most of us started out with the Olympus E-10, and posted on the Olympus SLR forum at DPReview. This was way, way, way, way back in time...like around late 2000 and early 2001. These self portraits were all done as part of an online gallery of E-10 users, which I think was done in late 2001. The gallery that is still online was done by a member who is not on our forums, but the original self portrait thread for E-10 users was created by none other than our very own Joe. http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/read. ... ge=1729948 . You can see Joe, JB, Les, Vance, TonyK, Jason Stoller (!), Talvan, and myself all participated, among many others. And even Adwiser made it with the final posting of the thread (late as usual ;) )!

JB then had the brilliant idea to branch out on his own, creating the first version of DD that was hosted on ezboards. That worked out okay for awhile, but JB and others really wanted a site and forum that really was our own. So in October of 2003 the current DD site was born (woohoo JB!!). And most amazing of all, these guys are still with us today. Damn they are getting old! ;)

For more kicks, here are links to the first posts of some of us from DPReview.

Alberto - http://www.dpreview.com/forums/postersp ... he&page=42

Me - http://www.dpreview.com/forums/postersp ... hw&page=25

So, there you go. That's the history lesson of the day.

Do'h, broken links. Sorry, I updated (er, deleted) my website and forgot to upload these images again. Thanks for the link directly to the page Dr G, that is where I pulled all the images from anyways.
