    Ten years have passed since the day I've registered at these here boards in order to jump on the Pandora bandwagon. Got one of the best handhelds ever made, became a small part of this great community and am looking forward for things yet to come.

    Here's to another decade!

    Damn, I missed my own anniversary in October. But I remember lurking for a good while before hand and iirc I got pissed off by a certain man asking for our ordernumbers before I even registered at first, and got my news instead from gruso via his website that no longer exists. It was only after that I decided I definitely wanted one regardless of the personality of the project manager, and registered for an account I think.

    My 10 year would have been sometime this year if you could count the year worth of lurking before I created an account.

    Damn, that's an impressive rate, and all high quality posts too. My merely middling posts have perhaps just been overtaken by him, given he's posting at an average of 3.136 posts a day (according to python's datetime module and division), while I've only made 2.679 posts a day.

    Run an interactive python session (just type python) then import datetime and type 'postcount/(datetime.date.today()-datetime.date(y, m ,d)).days' (without the quotes) - replacing postcount and y,m,d with the appropriate numbers (and noting not to put the preceding 0's on months preceding november, which caught me out with an unhelpful syntax error, presumably because preceding zeros are normally used to indicate a base such as 0b for binary and 0x for hex)

    I am member at forum.gp2x.de (the german Pandora boards) since Oktober 2008,
    and i joined this boards on 22.07.2009
    After a frustrading Minijob for the German Postal Service, i needed something for a frustrating buy,
    then i saw on Youtube a Video about the German TV Show Giga Games (unfortuntly they ditnt exist anymore) where EvilDragon showed his GP2X,
    I found this a great thing for playing gameboygames, etc
    The rest is history
