I first topic had nothing to do with why I joined. I was turned on to Neowin by a former co-worker and read the news on the site for over a year. Eventually I felt to need to comment on one of the articles.

I found it via mess.be I think, came here for a long time just to read the front page news and read a few forum posts every now and then, I eventually decided to join up in 2006 after around 2-3 years of lurking.

It is amazing though how much Neowin pops up for any technical problem, any time I'm searching for something on Google, the solution is very often found on one of the past posts here.

stumbled across Neowin via Cha-Ninjas Visual Styles......been here ever since :D 5years and counting :)

Viva Neowin!

Ironically I rarely venture outside of Hardware Hangout

Activewin used to be my first Windows news stop. Then I realised that nearly every article was simply a link to another site's news - Neowin. So I came here, and haven't been back since.

About 3 years back when there was a link for it on mess.be :p I just started slowly getting more into it, first reading the news, then reading forums more, etc.

A friend of mine told me about it. I beat him up for not telling me sooner.

It seemed like a cool place. So why not register.

(well i didnt actually physically, beat him up. )

I joined on 29-May 04 because I wanted to find a tech forum which was active, but I didn't post until March05 with something to do with Google X. And 3-4 years later here I am. I haven't posted all of 2007 until now
