Was a young supervisor (then Manager) of a Printed Circuit Board department back in the very late 90's. Now a relatively old senior level staff developing power plants. Doing all the work in the name of this young manager above us hahah. 

Changing careers in your 40s suck. So if you're in your early-mid 30s make sure you have a job you want and a stable company (or marry a rich girl/boy, whichever you prefer haha).

I think this current site is a re-incarnation of a previous life. The previous host crashed and all of the posts from that previous site are gone. PinoyPC 1.0 was started around the same time as TipidPC before the turn of the millennium.

Back then I just returned from working in Korea and US for about 10 years. Some clients of my former employer chased me and offered development/maintenance projects. I now work full-time for one of them from my own home-office. I can chose my hours of work and I don't have to commute to/from work.

PPC started way earlier than TPC.

TPC was an offshoot of the buy and sell part of PPC forums "blackmarket"

yes, TPC was an offshoot of PPC since there where some restrictions in our black market FS/ LF sections, as i recall.
i remember selling those round ide cables/ copper shims(still have a few) & other PC stuff before those computer stores opened up back there. Abit & Epox where teh bam back then!

History of TipidPC.com
In August of 2001, a group of friends were sharing their hobbies with each other. They were members of the PinoyPC community, a community of Filipino PC enthusiasts. The section for buying and selling in the forum was so in demand, they aptly named the section “The Blackmarket”. Then the idea came up, instead of just having a portion of the forum for buying and selling, why not put up a site that is dedicated to buying and selling of PC parts.

Recent college grad when I joined. Discovered the site while putting together a Celeron 600 build, was influenced instead to go AMD Duron. Now still in the same work, but with a PhD and trying to put together an AMD Ryzen rig.

I was a already a 12 year practicing dentist when i joined PPC way back in 2003.  I'm still a dentist to this day...  aching back and all!

How i miss those PPC EB's and Doc Spols sisig!

I 1st came across PinoyPC coz it was somehow related to the Planet Savage site (i owned an S3 and S4 Savage vidcard and visited that site often)!

this was the time when 3DFX cards were the rage!

To be fair to jaydee, Herman, reb, and the gang I wouldn't call TipidPC an offshoot. Bryan never really wanted to do a buy and sell section in PinoyPC and they did their own thing.

And yeah, if I remember correctly one time when moving forum software the much older data would not gracefully move over so we made a do over.
