    In @digitalwanderer 's "What brought you to B3D?" thread, someone had their first post quoted and it made me go back and find my first post. It was in the console forum on the subject of Nvidia's involvement in development of the PS3 (back before we knew exactly what that was going to be). It was a bit off the mark. :lol:

    I thought it might be fun to have a thread where we dig up either our literal first post, or our first substantive post and see what we were thinking about at the time.

    Mine predates the current forum and I don't think it's archived... maybe google time machine?

    1. Move the mouse pointer over your user name at the top of the page.
    2. Click on "Your Content".
    3. The search caps out at 999 results, so go to the last page and scroll to the bottom.
    4. Click on "Find older posts".
    5. Repeat 3 & 4 for as far back as it will let you go.

    Actually, B3D was around for a couple years (at least) prior to 2002. In 2002 the site crashed and the database was lost.

    Did the search, I wasn't saying anything valuable back in my first archived post.

    I remember when it was black and orange. I can't remember if I joined at the time, but I thought I definitely joined before 2004 (what my profile says). Maybe I was a lurker.

    Most of "Feb 2002" posters are transplants from the old forum. I think my per-conversion first post was either in "22-bit" color discussion spawned by the the article on the site or V3-3500 Vs Hercules "Super" TNT2 Ultra (probably the first factory-CO card ever).

    My first post was about Nvidia meeting dx9 compliance with fp32 on the fx... sad but true.

    Copy failed and I am not clicking through that again.

    Wasn't there a forerunner site to B3D as well? I have a feeling Kristof ran one - Dimension3D, perhaps? Or did that have no linkage to what became B3D?

    My first post was apparently about me correcting some lesser evil about Peter Moore's Halo 2 tattoo and who he worked for. :)
