interested in the history of this forum

hey am new(ish) here, been posting a few days.

after reading the Rep sticky made me wonder where this forum came about.

PS. A warm welcome to the forum anta

It was Vistax64's lil baby sister site that first started becoming active around the 6801 build leak.
