Congratulations Elliot B!

 

I just realized that on August 7, I made 18 years on Neowin as well! (this calls for a larger than normal font)

August 11th was my 17th year. Sheesh we've been here longer than most of the users have been alive. I was 21 when I first joined.

Account-wise I'm a total newfag, but I've been following Neowin since 2010.

Someone could have been born the day you joined Neowin and gone though all of School / College by now, just puts in to perspective how long that is.

 

Congrats and enjoy your 18th!

December 2001 here. Don't post much in the forum but still check the site most days.

 

It's changed a bit since then:

 

https://web.archive.org/web/20020328183714/http://www.neowin.net/

That's the Neowin I remember browsing in School, then college! I really did like that design.

 

I believe I found the site in late 2001, however never registered until early 2003.

 

We have a very primitive logo on this crawl: https://web.archive.org/web/20010202063000/http://www.neowin.net/

And a different one here also: https://web.archive.org/web/20010418162345/http://www.neowin.net/

well done.

 

I just check and mine will be October, time fly's by fast when you are having fun!!

 

I like that the first time I came on Neowin the page is in the archive.

I came looking for leaks of XP as my beta had not come in the post yet and thought I may download it using my 56k flex modem for the next month!. and stuck around after that:D
