After 8 years, 5 months and 9 days I finally hit the milestone that I would never have thought to hit in the beginning.
It's been a wild ride on here, there are so many people around here I'd like to thank for giving me such a great time and so much joy, hours of debates, talk, chat, chit-chat, friendship, help, giving help, ...
Neowin was, is and will for quite some time be the living room on the internet for me.
When I open my browser, Neowin opens and that's where I usually stick for some time, then move on to Youtube and the rest of my browsing.
90% of the time I have a Neowin tab open and whilst not all is rosy around here, it's way too awesome to say good bye.
I found it's usually phases in which I'm fed up and I keep coming back.
Not to devaluate my own critique, but I just love this place.
I really don't know what special things to do for Neowin, apart from maybe, yes, there is something I could do.
If you guys want, I can make a small collage of my city and post it on here.
If it wasn't fall time, I'd probably make something more special outside, but we can always save some more exciting things for the next milestone.
As a side effect I'm not top poster #111.
Not too long ago I celebrated being top #200 poster
In fact, this is just a little more than 11 months ago, and boy, I really got more active in the past two years.
I remember me having something around 2-3k-ish posts on here in 2010, now this year in January I believe I cracked the 7k mark, cracked the 8k mark about 2 months later.
Now whilst it took me considerable more time to get to 10k than I thought, I actually wanted to combine 10k with my 8 year anniversary, I think it's better late than never.
