Gift for 5000-th member
« on: September 17, 2010, 08:50:54 am »
I have prepared some gift :) from GIGABYTE for our 5000th member. Waiting for him (or her) to appear as the counter shows 4983 now.

Go go go!

P.S. Thanks to Dark Mantis for paying attention to the numbers ;)
ZX-S & C64 are still my favourites ;-)

Forum Membership reaches 5,000

In the past few months the forum has doubled in size and is now at a staggering 5000 members. It proves that we are doing something right as people from all over the world are joining our forum even when they have local Gigabyte forums of their own. That is a real testament to our success and help provided.

Does this actually apply to spammers?
Remember, when all else fails a cup of tea and a good swear will often help! It won't solve the problem but it will make you feel better.

I suppose it would depend on whether they complied with the "rules and regulations" of the Gigabyte  Forum.  Mind you I suppose the "Gift" could be interpreted differently ;)

Have always wanted to be a spammer, but never been able to spell words incorrectly ("Request for informations"), so would no doubt have failed miserably. Of course I could try and be a 419er, but wouldn't want to end up like these guys:

http://vimeo.com/1449435?pg=embed&sec=1449435
(note: it has been removed from youtube for reasons that are beyond me ("This video contains content from Sony Music Entertainment. It is not available in your country."), so I have linked to an inferior version, which will need the volume turned up to 11 to hear. It's worth it though)

As Newton said: "The mutual forces of action and reaction between two bodies are equal, opposite and collinear."
For every crap web presence (this one really makes me laugh: http://www.js-dreams.de/ ), there's a great one, and fora (can't bring myself to say forums) like this are the great ones. Lots of people helping each other where your average spotty sales assistant can't.

Thanks so far for the info I've gleaned from the site. Won't have much to add until I have some gigabyte experience...
