Hahahahahaha and there I was trying to recall the fella's name just these few days ago when a wave of 2007-08 nostalgia hit me during my housekeeping of old photos of my pc parts from that era in my archive.

Yah Krado the staunch anti Intel guy. Had the misfortune of actually meeting him in person once in SLS and my friend and I were like this guy is nuts!

Where did he disappear to? Or is he still active on the forums?
