    What was the 1st thread you started here in M-F ???
    Just curious as to what peoples first thread that they started here in M-F. Did you get here by googling a question and it bought you here ?? Or have you heard about this site from a friend.

    Mine was to do with converting video files. Converting MP4 video to burn onto DVD I had only had my White MB 2 days, and i stumbled upon M-F when i tried to google the answer. Signed up posted my thread and within no time at all, friend Kevriano came through with a answer for me.

    HandBrake.

    Thankyou M-F you have been invaluable to me and my transition

    Cheers

    Seriously though, I have learned so much here, and definitely received much invaluable help here, and learnt more than I ever thought I would about Macs, OS X, other OSs and software, and computers in general.
    Some people are addicted to facebook, drugs, sex, etc, and as much as I love a coffee and cig in the morning, a beer at night, and sex anytime, this is my addiction

    Yeah, I just read through it - what a blast from the past.

    What I find really interesting is how ignorant I was of the Mac... but then if you go in a few pages, I can't believe how quickly I seemed to pick up on everything. That was a fun time.

    Yes he has hasnít he..... And this is why i created this thread to see, especially the older members (member time in M-F) where they started and where they are now. As regulars we tend to know what members now no, likes and dislikes and to see where they 1st started off is pretty cool.

    What made me laugh Kane is your 1st two threads didnít receive a single post apart from your own while cwa had 8 pages in his. Back on the 21st Dec 2006 ....
    Keep posting people

    Cheers

    Glad you weren't discouraged. I know a lot of people feel slighted when they don't get a reply. The truth is, I "cherry pick" a lot of the threads I respond to. I'd rather give answers I'm certain of, then send someone down the wrong path. I'm sure I'm not the only one.

    I believe the first thread I started was about a month after becoming a member. I'd just finished reading a couple responses to questions from what I still call "fanboys", e.g. those whose only response was "Macs are better", but really have no solid answer as to why. So, I had to rant a little bit.

    Mac zealots - Better? - Think not, Just different
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    I don't know what threat I first started. Cause under my forum user profile it only stores your 500 most recently started topics. And I've started more then 500 this year alone. So if someone can get info on every topic I've started to tell me my first one that'd be cool, if not then I'm out of luck.
