    Wow, I remember all of those guys. How long has this site been around? I only have less than 200 posts, but I've been here just about nine months, almost every day. Does this make me an original?

    I remember...

    When I first joined...it was just a flame war. Kela and someone else, were just flaming eachother. It was pretty funny, so I decided to jump in. I think this is an awesome web site!

    time spent as a member

    I've been a member for a year and 3 months now...

    I joined because I was all caught up in the hype of MacWorld and the release of the TiBook....or whatever we all thought it was going to be.... :p

    i once was the slacker of all slackers and if had had discovered something like macrumors twenty two years ago when i started college, i would have never got thru my first year

    now if i had internet access during my first job in the 70s, i would have been fired during the first week...in those days, one always had to look busy and the idea of people chatting online would have been completely unthinkable

    and as far as reponsibility, it will come when you need it...until i moved out and got married and had to pay rent, i was still basically an overgrown kid...there is nothing like paying bills that makes ones grow up but i think you can still belong to a site like macrumors, though i notice the majority of posters live at home or are probably still single and in college having their parents or a student loan pay some of all of their way and i suspect when some of those people are "completely" on their own in the real world, some will drop off macrumors (and if you live at home with your parents but you pay your own bills, you are already out there in the real world...being in the real world in my definition is when the bill collectors own you, he he) but if i won the lottery, i would consider myself out of the real world and in some strange 5th dimension...might be nice, though

    but in the end, unless you want to be super rich, i don't see a need for anybody to have less than two days off every week or work more than 40 hours...i see people on salary who are paid for bacially 40 hours and put in a lot of overtime, which goes unnoticed, and basically work for free, which is pure stupidity...if you work for more than 40 hours, get paid...duh

    that's why doctors, lawyers, accountants, and smart techies have billable hours...as in per hour

    the main reason of this post is really just for the young posters out there...take your time to grow up and realize that being 18 is not really being an adult...that is just some really stupid legal term that is arbitrary...in some cultures, you were an adult at 13 and popped out your first kid shortly thereafter...of course, virtually no one in those days ever lived to 40)...but now that the age expectancy is past 70, take your time, man

    there i go on another philosophical hatman rant

    Re: 800??

    i mean one moment eye, john123, spikey, kela, and myself are high on the posts...but suddenly last summer you come along and the way i see it, you are eye's only real threat in high postings...he he

    i don't know my way around macs as well as some here and i am not good at flamewars so i can never say as much as some here (i average 1 1/4 posts per day now for just under 2 years)

    but i am saying a lot on the general discussion posts of macs and religion and i have to say, it is by far the most popular thread i have ever seen since the inception of macrumors

    i always knew mac users had this religious fervor about their macs, but i didn't know that it translated into the most spiritually aware bunch of people i have ever met...it's like one huge 12 step group;)

    Re: networkman

    too funny...i tried to create a more brief and less patient character with networkman...fewer posts and more prone to flamewars but now i am the more neutral jefhatfield:eek:
