Wow! My LQ User is an adult!


I haven't logged in to LQ for quite some time, but this week thought I'd have a poke around the old haunt, and there staring me in the face is a little line that says I first registered in April 2001.

It's now April 2019.

My LQ user profile is 18 years old.

That's scary as hell.

How old is your LQ user profile?

<<< That old. Two years exactly.

I originally came here looking for help with audio settings in Debian. I have since left Debian and become fully immersed in Slackware.

Exactly 4 years - April is obviously a really popular month to join LQ! It is also exactly 5 years since I started using Linux as my daily driver and as my username has 2010 in, it is 9 years since I started using Linux and Windows together (or you could say I started using Linux but used Windows for gaming...).

Not sure why it took me so long to join LQ, but I think I had visited the site a fair bit to get useful info as a noob, but never actually posted anything.

Sticking with the theme of April, I guess it's already 14 years. I didn't use forums much then, mostly usenet instead. I'd been using GNU/Linux for around 8 years by then, having come over from Solaris / SunOS.

I registered here in March 2016, but before that, I used Linux Forums for many years. Quite a few people here were on LF too. It was a really nice community until the site owners let it get infested with malevolent scriptware. That's what happens unfortunately when the managers of a forum don't actually own the site.

Although I haven't been posting all that much my profile is almost 12 years old.
Only the last few years since I retired I've been more active in posting too, although I still often do not login and just look for interesting posts.

You are never too old to learn something new!

A bit over six years since I signed up, but most of my post count is in the last 18 months now that I no longer have a day job. I'm enjoying helping where I can and learning something nearly every day from the Gurus here.

2006 because I started using Slackware in 2005 and this is the official unofficial support forum for Slackware and I had a question that I couldn't answer via a search.

But it was several years before I had the nerve to try to answer a question. Since them, I've learned that trying to answer Linux Questions is a great way to learn stuff.
