Geoff you are excluded from competition. Sorry guy.

I rarely see posts from people earlier than my date, one or two here and there but no one regular. Where are the real old timers?

May 5, 1999

Going on 6 years!
Anyone?

Plenty of people from fall '99, myself included (as alanbenson), but few indeed from summer or earlier. When did it all start?

edit: Shows how often I visit the front page. DVDTalk turns 6 this month!

I've always wondered what the forum looked like when it was a wee little one. Does anyone have a snapshot of the original forum?

Wow, I've been around longer than I realized - March 2000 for me.

It was quite cool to see the wayback machine in action.

I definetly haven't been around the longest. But it feels like I've been here forever...

I've gone through periods of lurkdom and have never been an Otter mainstay with any name value (I'm like the store brand, I sit next to Coke and Pepsi, but my name is still Safeway Select).

Anywho...lets see how long I've been here...Sept 1999.

Hmm...I know I lurked for a while before I joined....is way too long an answer?

N64 vs. Playstation? Should I buy a Dreamcast? People selling kidneys on Ebay? Those were the days!


(But I wasn't around for them.)
