    i realized that a good number of us (not me) have been posting on this forum for a long time. so what has changed in your life sice joining? it doesnt, and probably shouldnt be related to macrumors.

    for me:
    1. i've broken and succesfully healed my first bone (ankle).
    2. I've made my first major purchase in my short life (macbook).\

    unfortunately, i dont have much else to add, i havent been on this forum for very long :eek:

    Let's see... graduated college, got my first job, lost that job, then got a new and better job.

    Became an uncle, and soon to be a father. Watched my parents divorce after 35 years.

    Moved a couple times, killed my college car and replaced it with a pickup. Got a dog, lost our cat.

    Got my kitchen equipment fix (mostly) taken care of. Bought the beginnings of a shop for my garage....

    God, how long have I been here now?

    I've been to Apple HQ
    I won a Powerbook (a few days before I registered, but that was my first post.. haha)

    I've successfully rehabilitated a reconstructed ACL in my right knee. I've torn the ACL in my left knee, and am just starting rehabilitation. Those would be the most major things. :)

    I was born, raised, educated, married, and became a father, all since joining MacRumors. OK, I guess it just feels like I've been a member forever.

    Actually, now that I check the calendar, it seems I was already a parent before I got this MacRumors hobby. That means that the biggest change since I joined, other than working my way up from Newbie to Administrator, is that I changed from someone who dreamed of going to Japan someday into someone who dreams of going back to Japan someday.

    When I joined MR, I was about to start high school... now I'm a senior

    I've purchased 3 iPods (3G, Mini, 4G Photo) and sold 2

    I bought my first Mac

    I went from being addicted to Counter-Strike 1.6 to not even having a PC. Then I built a new PC and got addicted to Counter-Strike Source. Now I am selling my gaming PC (again) and going Mac-only.

    I grew 10 inches...

    My iTunes library has gone from less than 100 songs to over 1,500 songs

    I learned how to drive... and got a car... and got into a wreck

    I've wasted a lot of time here...
