The Way We Were

Forum threads from yesteryear...

I came across some old saved threads from the original forums (1999, 2000),
thought some of our long-time members might like to take a look back.

Warning these are fairly large files

http://www.pianoworld.com/forum_archive_021900.htm (Feb. 2000)

http://www.pianoworld.com/forum_archive082099.html Aug. 1999

http://www.pianoworld.com/forum_nov_99.htm (Nov. 1999)

http://www.pianoworld.com/forum_archive_122199.html (Dec. 1999)

Some day I hope to find some from 1997/1998. I'm sure I have them on an old floppy somewhere :-)

Hey, people were arguing about Baldwin v. Yamaha v. Kawai v. Mason and Hamlin and "How much is my antique piano worth?" back then. Apparently things never change. \:D

this line had me chuckling:

Post your piano questions on this page, then check back in a day or two to see if they have been answered.

for a very long time now, your questions will be answered in about three seconds! laugh

A lot of the same folks are still around the net. Some here, some not.

TNCR is over 800,000 posts. Fat Shirley has around 35,000. WTF dumps their stuff every so often, so total post count is unknown.

Over 1,000,000 posts where pianists discuss everything. And nothing.
