Just wanted to know exactly how long you regulars have been coming to this site(hopefully not for 4 years! lol) I have been perusing(trolling) for over a year here at TR.

On the order of three years now. Though I've only really started to get active in the forums and all this year.

Ditto. I was here on day #1, but I didn't really 'move in' till a month or two later.

I started coming about a year ago. I usually visit tech-report everyday and hang out in the IRC channel when I can.

Yeah, I followed Damage and Evil over from Ars, and followed Ars from just a couple of months after they started up, way back in '98.

Tonight I just slid TR thirty bucks. I figure it's the least I can do for... four years of reading pleasure.

I was reading Ars when I heard about this site. Since it went up, I've had a bookmark to this site on all my computers.

Not long...

In fact it must be only a few months, since about October or thereabouts... I followed a link from somewhere, and got onto this site... read a few reviews and liked the slick interface etc. etc. (slurp slurp) :smile:

And I've been a pain ever since!,

I've been coming here since they started it. Before that (and now too) I regularly visited ARS-TECHNICA. Spend more time reading content than posting to the forums, though.

Since day 1 - literally. I'm (still) a dedicated Ars reader, and added TR to my daily reading list when it started.

Right after Ars started to get boring (read: Damage left)

I never go to Ars anymore, not unless I am having trouble falling asleep...

I must admit some of the new Ars staff just don't do it for me. I still like Hannibal's stuff though....

I followed the good Doctors from Ars to their short stint at [K]yle's, then to TR when it was born... so does that make me a zealot?

Been visiting since Day One of TR's inception. Used to read Damage & Evil over at Ars, was disappointed when they left. Found out at the [H] that they were opening up a new site, hopped on over to take a peak immediately. Started visiting every day. Made TR my home page about a month after it opened up. I now have at least a 1/2 dozen TR windows (main page, several comments threads, and the forums) open at all times on whichever comp I might happen to be on.(the TR browser windows might be minimized tho, depending upon current foreground task.)
