I Googled "tech help sites" and looked at several, but found this one to be the friendliest, most active, and most knowledgeable, so I stayed.

90% of all I know about computers, I've learned here.

I found this site through Google as well, and can also say that the large majority of what I've learned about computers has been through helping out here.

I found this site on a search back in 2003 for a technical problem with drivers, and then found a community...

The posts are still there but the search had to be trimmed down to only give the first 500 results. You can do the search in "ascending order" as opposed to "descending order" and you will find your very first 500 posts. It's more difficult to find those in between unless you can narrow it down using key words.

Was doing phone technical support for a nationwide dial-up ISP (this was in 2004), and one of the guys I helped to fix his problem referred me to the site. Been here ever since...

That was so long ago.

I used Goggle.

OK was over at an "Unofficial Aptiva Web Sites" that closed down right after 9/11/2001. Was a great site but we all went crazy looking around for a new forum.
I think found looking for a new forum and two other sites but liked this one better.
Then others from Unofficial Aptiva Web Sites also came here and are still here.
DS (Dark Star), Wino and others all came over back then.

Thanks to Google I found TechGuy, I was searching on how to resolve an issue on my Android phone. Since I'm not really a tech-savvy person, I rely on the internet on how to solve problems with my gadgets
