    Just now i was really bored, so for kicks i decided to check out what the posts were like back in 2002.

    Some of it sounds so funny to hear these day:

    "2mp will be PLENTY for blowing up, 3mp shoudl suit you well"

    the images were vga or lower, heavily compressed

    2mp was the last one, and it had a memory card slot.
