Rule 10: No spamming, Ever!

Spamming is characterized by the initiation of threads or posts that contribute nothing to a forum, be it off topic or on topic. Examples include: empty bodies, bodies with few words that have no relation to the current thread or discussion and those posts that state they are spam, either to annoy, advertise or increase a member's post count. Users may not use news item comments to advertise or promote another product. Resurrecting old forum posts is also not appreciated unless it serves a worthy cause to the forum. This determination is made by the forum Moderator or Administrator and is not up for discussion.

I think that puts your warn level up to 100% :p

This may be a silly question, but if this is the first topic, why is it topic #2? :p

The real first topic is the 'Welcome to your IPB installation' topic that gets added when you install, and everyone removes right away.

Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: Igor, would you mind telling me whose brain I did put in?

Igor: And you won't be angry?

Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: I will NOT be angry.

Igor: Abby someone.

Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: Abby someone. Abby who?

Igor: Abby Normal.

Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: Abby Normal?

Igor: I'm almost sure that was the name.

Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: Are you saying that I put an abnormal brain into a seven and a half foot long, fifty-four inch wide GORILLA?

[shakes and grabs him]

Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: IS THAT WHAT YOU'RE TELLING ME?

/First thing I thought of. :laugh:

I have with Neowin since it was a tiny baby (I remember the forums at MSN Groups, I think I may have been a member there :p And I remember that boy launching an all out war against neowin & trying to create a Neowin2.net) sniff sniff :D Aha Those are the days. But I never registered an account until a few years ago.

Now my post is preserved for eternity at the thread that began all threads :p :)

Gotta love the poll about which OS. :)

Yeah, it was a pain in the butt to get WfW 3.11 onto the internet. There was a Trumpet Winsock add-in thing that would enable you to dial up and connect to the internet with your 9600 baud modem (or whatever you had). The USR Courier Robotics things used to be $900.

Windows 95 was the first Microsoft OS that had TCP/IP connectivity built in (well, NT 3.5 may have had it first but that was a Server OS).

Or people edit it to make an announcement out of it, then you don't lose the fancy 1.

Wow, I just read the first page again. I didn't even know of Neowin's existence then. Also Keldyn posted back then, it's been ages since I heard the fella. Weird flashback stuff.
