What was the first post? What was the problem? And was it solved?
This seems to the first ever post.
2001...I think we were still using dial up in my house then.
I think I just moved up to DSL!
I had ADSL....6MB....That wouldn't come near my needs now, but at the time it seemed fast, but coming off dial-up anything was
It was huge..... I remember being able to download an image in no time flat and websites were loading super fast! Oh the days........
Clearly there were posts before that. That was just the first post of the new system.
I guess the previous primitive comment system's posts were not archived.
Go on then, you find it.
Probably some n00b whining about not being able to have an avatar or access the marketplace.
Even the first non-announcement post was not a problem: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?p=3
I laughed so hard. It is probably true (avatar not MP because that rule is still kind of new I think).
Ok off-topic, BUT... 6Mbps is the BEST we can get NOW in my podunk town. It aint that bad; we use it for Netflix, online gaming with PS3, etc. sure I'd love to have 20 (or even 10Mbps), but I'll take what I can get. :-D And in 2001... Yeah I still had dial-up, too.
I know it sucks....Us city folks take super fast FIOS for granted....There are still a lot of folks on dial-up. My ADSL comes with my landline bundle and is free, so if my Optical connection goes down, I can dig out the old filters etc.
I don't know but I bet it was better than 90% of the content we get on here now days.

Here is the 15 millionth post, which was made a just few minutes ago.
Those comments were too primitive for the superior bulletin board system.
Sorry, long before my time ........... at MR that is.
arn's future cash-flow.
I believe so.
Back then I was probably too busy playing Starbound II on my iMac G3 to care about that there t'Internet. Although three months later I got my first 512kbps broadband connection installed, at which point wasting time online got a lot more bearable
I can't help but wonder what those initial posters are doing right now, or even if they're still amongst us.
With such generic names I guess we'll never know.
I just downvoted it for not having more up votes.
I don't remember any of the posters in that thread (apart from Arn). And I've been around for a while...
Lost in the crypt...
Come back joe_k!
I miss the quality of the old posters. But that's probably to do with the fact that there were fewer regulars, so you got to know them, and that a thread that was maybe 5 posts when you went to bed, had usually barely scraped the lofty heights of 10 when you woke up the next morning, and in some threads, usually mine, they'd still just be the 1.
When I joined it was the likes of eyelikeart, RowerCPU, Dukestreet, Alphatech, Backtothemac , Jefhatfield, Jelloshotsrule, mischief, Hemingray, teabgs (though I always thought of him as teabags), evoluzione, britboy, Wintermute, krossfyter, Durandal7 and of course your hubs Mr Ed and many, many others, some still post, some lurk, some have changed their names... but I remember them all with fondness though.
I remember evildead.
Those 4 months make all the difference!
