Nope, it's today. August 16. It's past midnight here in the UK.

Almost 1900 here, so, it's still the 15th here ;)

I'm a time traveler 🙂

I came here for Whistler news, and here I am...

 2001 was a huge year for Neowin - reporting on Whistler - and I am now pretty sure I was here before my registration date as I came for Whistler news and registered when XP was already out - for visual style mods

 

When did the site first go live I wonder?

@Steven P.

First article was posted on January 27, 2001, I believe.

Site went live Oct 1 2000 but we lost all the cgi based content when we upgraded to php and our first forum (I think that was July 2001) which is why I show as having registered then instead of Oct 2000.

 

Congrats Elliot, visitation has dropped quite a bit which is sad, but I am grateful for those that stick with us!  I will have to see about milestone badges 😛

Just passed my 19th year here. Remember when you wanted a "fancy" site it was CGI scripts or heck Coldfusion but it was clunky and slow. DHTML was still new at the time.

Yeah in the beginning we used Greymatter CMS and it was great, but there was no way (at the time) to port the content over when we switched to PHP. We've had a custom CMS built from PHP since 2002.

Today it's my turn for hitting 20 years on Neowin. Not a big user of the forums these days but I still visit the front page every day.

 

I remember being on the old forum as well. I think I left joining this "new" one a little while because I wasn't sure it was going to stick around, which seems quite amusing now.

 

Here's to another 20 years! 😁

I remember your username from way back when 😊
