I found Neowin a while ago via Wikipedia... I think it was regarding the Win2k code leak.

I registered not too long ago... to plug my blog.

Plus I love commenting on stuff... maybe thats why I have a blog.

How? Was looking for a way to adjust the Windows wallpaper directory, actually, and just happened to find an answer in a thread from this forum. Haha.

Why? Hell if I know. Boredom, I suppose. Seems like a decent (if not more than that) forum, and I could always use a good forum to give me a new crowd to interact with, so I figured I may as well join.

Come to think of it I really don't remember how I found Neowin. I think it was referenced in other forum I visited, maybe Bigblueball. :huh:

HI

I've been a long-time guest... been using the odd XP tweaks and customization stuff. About a year ago I made the move over to LinuxMint and today on the Distrowatch I saw Shift... it's busy downloading as write this. I've finally found a home for my 'parasite' pc and customizing blog. It's not there yet... let me get into Shifting first! I'll keep you updated...

I forget what but it was an article on Engadget that led me here for the first time. Then I was looking something up on google and I got brought to neowin again. Made my account after that realizing it was a useful site.

Back when TechTV **WAS** tech tv .. before the G4 fiasco ... I was watching the "Screen Savers" (Leo Laporte and Patrick Norton days) and they mentioned the site on the show.

I've been with Neowin since the Windows 2000/Windows XP beta days.

Via google somehow :D

My first post was about what I could upgrade to my system, so the posts tell me anyway.

I was an Admin at DeskMod a few years back and gorman suggested I check out this site called Neowin. I even interviewed Neobond for DM in 2002. :D I recall being nervous about that at the time.

I saw a post on another site dealing with Vista's Fun UAC. (permissions etc)

Then i saw a script/program by Herby, you the man! Wanted to thank that person for coding that great tool.

Figured i would check out Neowin, looks good.

I used to lurk in the iexbeta boards around the time of Longhorn alpha and they linked to some threads here. Came here and browsed through the forums to find the Gamers Hangout where I spend most of my time now.

I guess I don't remember, I think a friend hooked me up with it when I was looking for some sort of information on something. Maybe visual styles or graphic stuff/ web development.

It won't let me view my first first post... probably deleted it was so long ago. Now I mostly just peruzz and read through some stuff.
