Having joined in March of 1999 it's good to see this forum still going strong.

Dennis David-

Was the technical level of discussion on this thread better or worse last century?

We were more populated by more or less normal F1 fans with a technical bent then. Now the tech literacy of the discourse is at a generally higher level, though there's less awestruck wonder and curiosity evident I reckon.

I know, you didn't ask me.

The answer's pretty much spot on, however...

I recall Art once telling me that it was really sad that we had so little technical talk on the forum. He thought it was a bit of a joke, but it was truly slow in here for a long time.
