A little bit of trivia.

The actual creation of the site took very little time. It was on a service called EZBoard. Later we moved to VBulletin. There was another satellite site at the time that was having issues and I thought it would be fun to start up another basically to see what happens. After a few weeks I realized that DBSTalk was starting to grow legs. After a month or two I brought on my first moderators.

BTW, there were no co-founders. Just me. :)

I remember those days as a lurker. (Man has it been that long?)

If I remember it was you, Steve Mehs, Scott Greczkowski, John Corn and one more guy I can't remember his name (Neil?).

Time flies when your having fun!

Happy Birthday!

Man, you lurked for a long time.

I was active in satellite a long time ago, then moved and couldn't get satellite. Then last year I got directv... now my job has moved so I am moving with them. Unfortunately (or fortunately) depending how you look at it the new house I am moving into it is impossible for me to have directv so it looks like I will go with dish for the eastern arc.

The place I am staying until I close on my house has dish now and its not as bad as I remember, so looking forward to it. when I am installed I will be more active I am sure.

Happy Birthday to the site and also great job on the news video!

Wait a second.... you are user 1. I am user 21. Am I the lowest numbered user who has posted recently?

Depends on your definition of recently.

John Corn posted in April, and visited the site 2 weeks ago (#6)
bobr hasn't posted in awhile, but visited the site last week (#13)
Neil Derryberry hasn't posted in a year, but visits regulary (#16)
delillo has never posted, but visits often, including 2 weeks ago (#18)
navy8ball posted today (#11)
leesto visited yesterday, but hasn't posted in a long time (#14)

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.
