Default How did you stumble upon CF?

Title says it all. Tell your stories of how you found out about computer forums and why you became a member....

For me, I was having lots of trouble with my computer and so I typed in "computer forums" on google and it was the first link. I read a few threads and immediatly became a member to get all my problems solved

eMachines isn't that bad...they're very good computers for people who don't need top-of-the-line, while at a budget.

I joined on my birthday because I got a Microsoft sidewinder which didnt work. And I went mental, and of course I went on google and you lot came to my aid. Came back on after that one problem a few months later and started helping people with other problems and then got addicted! Then I found the social lounge and my post count went sky high!

I don't remember how exactly I found here, but most likely through google.
I needed to know if there is a program that would automatically start my computer in the morning. Well I got an answer like in 5 minutes and got it working. So then I decided to stay because I like computers, I wanted to learn more about them and I knew that there were helpfull ppl in here.

Damn! I can't remeber the name of the guy who helped me I know it I just can't get it out of my head. He has left now, atleast for a while. I think he was a mod, and he had that avatar of a guy hitting his head to the table.
