Announced on another forum?
Authored by: ebow on Nov 04, '05 09:18:33AM

I seem to recall Rob being a forum member on MacRumors or MacFixIt, and announcing the new site there, back in 2000. I could be mistaken, but I think I've been visiting the site since I learned about it that way.

Hmm, according to my user info page, I've been a member since 30 Nov 1999.

Same here, I think it's something goofy. Mine is set to 30-11-99 00:00.

Geeklog never used to have a "reg date" field. So anyone who signed up before Feb 16, 2003, has a reg date of "00-00-0000." This turns into the 1999 date that you see.

There are about 24,000 such users; everyone else has a reg date.

Yea, I think it was announced on MacFixIt's forums, and it was in my sig on the various boards I particpated on -- MacNN, for one. Nowadays, all my time seems to go here, our forums, and Macworld's forums, so I'm not on the others hardly at all...

There may have even been an announcement on Macintouch way back when...
