I was in a drunken stupor in the rain, and the door was open.

Still in the stupor, but at least I have someone to talk to.

I can't remember how at first, I originally joined about 2 years before my current Joined date since I got myself banned which was only supposed to be temporary but something went wrong.

I was searching for motherboard reviews and stumbled across AnandTech.

From there I was intrigued by the forums and decided to join. I am one of the few original members from way back.

You can tell this by the fact I have a space in my handle. You can't do that now.

Default RE:how did u first find out about Anandtech (not just forums) ?

Somewhere around 1998, my old man bought a Packard Bell PC. Piece of junk, mind you, but I was able to get on the internet with it, through AOL no less . My fruitless searchs on how to improve my Packard Bell computer led me to the many hardware sites. By some links, from a hardware site that has bit the dust, I came to anandtech (very highly recommended too, I might add). Thanks to Anand, I was able to build a new Celeron 300Mhz system with the abit BH6 motherboard, then I OC'ed to 450 Mhz! The BH6 is still in used, as back up. The anantech forums, well that was through agn3d or was it voodooextreme, when I was still a member of the forums there. There was this "hot deal" for a 19 Inch iiyama monitor from www.buy.com. Anyway, it was like gold fever, and everyone wanted to be in the "deal of the century". Turned out it was a pricing mistakes, and the sky fell...for the wouldn't be owners of a 19" monitor (flat screen too). I visited Anand's forums to see who got the monitors and who didn't. There were many rants about what evil deeds buy.com had done to them, which were entertainment themselves to read. It lessened the pain for not getting that beautiful monitor for under $300.

I have no idea how I found the forums. Maybe if there was a way to see my first post, I'd know. I think it may have had something to do with overclocking.

OK the truth is Anand himself used to beat me up in high school because he said "I gave geeks a bad name"
so i heard he had a website so i decided to check it out and vowed to be as obnoxious as possible to extract my revenge!

I found a link to that video of the stickman doing this crazy martial arts stuff on this site. Since then, I learned how big it is and became addicted
