    I first came to bit back in 01-early 02 when someone on my (formerly) regular forum posted a link to Macro Black. I registered at the time, but never posted. Flash forward to 2005, when I finally left the old site, I couldn't remember any of my details! Being the lazy sob that I am, I simply created a new name, using what has been my gaming name for over 10 years now. My post count it still in noob territory, I'm a lurker by nature here. I've come really close to posting project logs here once or twice, but have never considered either of them to be "good enough" for BT. High bar indeed!

    I googled for something work related and followed the threads to BT. Then found that it was more interesting than work, so came back regularly.

    Started off asking a super-noob question about masking tape's conductivity. Been a constant reader of the site and used to only post when I felt something needed to be said for about 4 years. But now work's slow so I'd figure I would integrate myself a little bit deeper into the culture on work on my post count.

    If a mod could dredge up some stats I'm curious to see if im one of the most ancient low-post members that's still a regular.

    Oh, and BT is one of my favorite places to go to on the web. I've lost so many work hours due to viewing project logs I feel guilty that BT isn't getting a cut of my paycheck.

    used to work on a tech site and bit-tech used to send out tech news story's, do tech sites still do that, with like /. and digg? it was back in the days when affiliates were "cool" and everyone was on 56k.. that was A LONG time ago

    R.I.P. :waah:


    I joined when I was reading reviews of this or that. the bit link was in a co-op list of links to other tech sites. When I saw the mods, I had to join.

    BTW, what ever happened to linear? His site is still up, but he hasn't been around here in a long time.

    :waah:
