    So, what is it that happened on May 2008? and how many of you liked the first logo of BHW? Noticed those threads on the images? Gold!

    This is great. Interesting to see how the forum was before I discovered it.
    I love the category changes. My favorite is 'Nice & Terrible Websites.' I wonder what the benefit of a terrible website was in 2007.

    Damn, only one of the older ones I actually remember. Thanks for giving me a blast from the past man. Good vibes at how far BHW has come along.

    I first came across BHW many years ago by accident, I was doing research into other BH activities.

    I immediately saw this wasn't the BH I was after, so left.

    Now I think of those wasted years and what I could have learnt and earnt!

    Just hope it is true that you are never too old to learn.

    Haha, old BHW. I was always aware of BHW but was too scared to join as I thought I would get hacked. This was way back before I had any knowledge of IM.

    This is true for me too actually. I was worried I'd get a mass server hack or something the moment I posted a link to any of my sites.

    This is similar to what I thought about joining this forum last year.. I thought bh was illegal. I felt that I would be breaking a law when signing up. The Google laws.
