    I don't really remember how I found it. All I know is it came up in google. Can't remember why/when I was searching.

    I was brought here after a black van drove up next to me and kidnapped me. They tied me up and gagged and blindfolded me. I ended up here. I want my mommy :cry: :cry: :cry:

    Brewnog hit me over the head with a heavy object and when I woke up I was here*.

    *May not be true. Google may have played a more significant role than stated

    greg or somebody at UW-Milwaukee but little flyers everywhere about it. I was going to school there at the time majoring in physics- so I decided to check it out. A great use of some advertising in my mind anyways.

    I was searching for information on string theory, and this was the best of the links, started looking around and got hooked.

    Another member recommended it.

    I started off in the Engineering, Mathematics, Physics and Homework forums.

    Somehow I ended up in GD. :rolleyes:

    I got an email from Greg very early in PF 2.0. Must have been in 2001 or 2002.

    I think he was manually going through emails of Usenet sci.physics and inviting people.
