I came into SGE just after the patch that cleaned out stored cash and enstated Interest related changes. Not the best wording, but simply put, at least a month or so before pollution. :mrgreen:

no he just rolled back the year of his compy..

what's sad is A. I don't think the net was available then, or even created for public use.

B. He's using a version of a recent windows ;P

psst...

Aaron wasn't even old enough to program then :P

1: I'm not gonna change the date on my comp for a stupid hoax. I just Pshopped it.

2: Smeagol just won the prize of the "stupidest comment on the forums thus far". Because the internet didn't exist in 1982 (ARPA-net doesn't count), I wasn't born in 1982, there wasn't any windows in 1982 and Toonces wasn't old enough to program yet.

3: What's wrong with my version of windows? XP is as stable as 2000, with some applications you can turn XP into XP Professional, Vista sucks (it does, not following hype here), I hate the other skins XP has.

I don't know for sure when patch 253 came out but it was at least 2005 and I think January 2006. Your PC clock may have been messed up when you installed. You may have been playing longer but not on this install.

k, I checked some things on my computer, including the dates of the creation of Explorer.exe and some of the subsequent patches... 2006, not 2003. I knew that it didn't feel like I had been playing that long...

I thought I was special :(

I think we all had that at some point.

me first time playing:

"Crappy graphics. And WTF am I supposed to do?"

3 hours later:

"Suuuch crappy graphics!!!"

2 years later:

I think I only hung around for the community really and to talk BBQ on shout 'till I got muzzled by the FCC. Can't play now though as it lags like crazy for whatever reason.

And most of the people worth talking to are long gone.
