    Default How did you join/find out about TBCS

    After reading TGS's post about his experience here and with modding made me wonder, how did you guys and gals find out about this site and when?


    mine was a mere 5 years ago and i believe i was either looking for help with a virus or maybe water cooling. i really can't remember actually. this was my first forum ever and i enjoyed the experience very much! i am now a member of 5 + forums and spend the vast majority of my time on them while i use the computer.

    currently it's Canadian Gun nutz looking through the for sale section and reloading. but i really want to get back into learning and teaching about water cooling. i guess my main reason for not keeping up with it, is i built the computer i set out to build and have overclocked it as best i can. so alas i am board, and drunk.

    anyhow enough blabbering and more reading! post now!!!@!

    I found out about the site from my husband (dating at the time). It was a couple of years ago. I'm not a member of any other forums at the moment.

    Year ago.

    I was at Bill Owen's forums, and there was this... Feeling about them. Can't tell if it was superiority, or that the forums were simply dying.

    Found TBCS, talking about the ModWiki by others (forget who, I think Mach).
    Stayed since.

    I saw Paul's Doom 3 mod on hardocp or somewhere else. I registered then I think . . . but didn't really stay until a few forums dedicated to NES PC mods died. After that, this was the most welcoming place.

    I was looking for ideas to mod a set of broken MP3 sunglasses into a new case. Thought a SNES or NES controller would be good. Was looking for ideas when d_stilgar's NES mod showed up in google. Followed it here, once I read through that worklog, I was interested. Saw Doom 3 and was hooked. Now you've been stuck with me ever since. That will be 5 years on May 10th. Wow where does the time go to?

    I needed help with properly wiring LED lights in my case. Among several other sites, I posted on this one, and it was the only one to give me any kind of response. I checked out the site, found it pretty darned awesome, and stayed The sense of cimmunity here is great; even when I'm not working on a project, I still feel like I can post questions and people are genuinely interested in helping out.
