    1st post or 1st time ever going to the url www.techpowerup.com?

    My 1st post was in the club forums as a joke.

    1st time ever visiting the site was back in 05 (or was it 04?) when ATi 9500 softmodding was in.

    i randomly did a search for the ATI 4800 series and a link popped me to the news frontpage. Kept happening for multiple searches, so i finally started looking here daily for my tech info. I join the forums in June, but didn't start posting until october...now look at where I am. I'm a whore goddammit

    Hardware Analysis got boring. :(

    I felt compelled to create an account and post for the first time seeing some post I just had to respond to in programming...

    I think this was that post.

    I was building a PC for a friend, and I thought that this site looked like a good place to join for advice (it was at the top of Google's search ;) ).

    EDIT: 666th post, w00t!
    I refuse to post any more posts until I can be bored of 666. :D
