Any Old-timers still out there?

Hey There,

Are there any reeeeal old-timers out there who are still checking in? I think I found slinging.org the first year Chris started it. I made a few videos on the different slinging styles. Slinging concrete at a concrete recycling plant in South Carolina USA

I also did and have no idea what my name was I think it was around 2005 ish? Guys like Douglas the Black, Mike R, Chris , Techstuf , Nwmanitou and plenty of others. Been a long time. Only ended up coming back around 2010 maybe? Nwmanitou’s video on the figure-8 blew my mind and got me started on it wayyyy back then.

lol us Great Old Ones have long and disturbingly inclusive memories !

Altho8ugh videos don't appear to work.
Several of them were also in mpg format, I'll upkload those when I'm back in the house.

You have to bear in mind that this was ll BEFORE youtube. So any video was upoload directly to the forum in whatever cockamany video format tha persons camera happened to use.

apple. mov were always problematical.

I was here the day it was posted lol. Back then there wasnt many decent slinging videos. Every one that was posted was watched dozens of times by me lol.

EDIT: Ok I was mistaken David_T may just be the OG of OGs here at slinging.org. Wow.

Found my old profile when I lived in Rowlett, Tx. I take no responsibility what this old Me said. I was depressed and to be honest, high a lot.  Now Im rarely depressed and never high. So glad Im no longer an asshole though! ....  er....wait....    Huh

I suspect morphy is now talking to himself.

So not depressed or stoned - but schizophrenic ? Hmm...
