Don't really remember either. I think I was searching for driver issues on my video card via Google.

I was searching Google for tweaks to enhance XP's performance...came upon XP-erience, and thought it was a great place to join. Since it was the first forum I ever joined, I was concerned about privacy/spam issues, so I signed up with a b0rked email address and the name "XPMagic" :p
I then later switched to NetRyder...the name I had been using online everywhere else (IM/Chat etc).

It was a combination of finding it through google and also SPeedY_B, as XP was still new and we were looking for sites/resources for it

I found xp-erience while searching for MSNM skins on Google. I think. Didn't really start posting until about 6 months after I joined though ;p

NTFS.org owned the domain name "3dFiles.com", which was one of my favorite sites in early 2002. I was so pissed that I didn't even look into it for a looooong time. But now I love it ;)

ahh.. yes... I remember the day like it was yesterday... sitting in an IRC channel... think it was early/mid August of '01.

There was a bot (hosted on eggdrop run off the old XP-erience server, note the server was bought originally for the eggdrop service.. the domain name was merely an additional feature) which kept on spurting out this same site every so often... so I decided to take a look... turned out to be a help/support/news forums regarding Windows XP...

...ended up posting replies to threads.. getting involved in the community, basically got attached.

Searching for Windows XP information about a week after information leaked of it's existence, located Bink's site with about 38-billion links on it to other sites, went to them all, stayed at the best one :D

I was a member of another site, we went down for a couple of days, I searched around to get my helping fix.

found this site

the personalities here have always been outstanding, much more comfortable with their own respective personalites, and it's much more a comunity then anywhere else I've been

decided to stay

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
