Yeah me too...and I actually just assumed I was one of the first users until earlier this year when I noticed the client was actually first released in 2003.

Yeah I bet they were having a pretty big year even before Skyrim dropped. And those Great Gift Pile objectives was an ingenious way to surely sell a bunch
of lower-end cheap games during the sale that would have sold pretty well anyway at those prices and with all those bored users on break.
