This is a question Happy 10th Birthday B3ta

Ten years ago today we launched B3ta (well the version of it you'd recognise). Happy birthday B3ta! As a special one off please add your memories of B3ta here. E.g. How you found the site, or an early thing you saw on the site, maybe the people you've met or how the community is/was part of your life.

Ten years! Blimey.
9 years and 18 days since i registered, and i know i lurked for a month or so before that. I cant remember how i found it - an image posted on another forum i guess. I quickly got addicted - and in those days you could read the whole board after getting home from work - learned some very rudimentary photoshop, got a bit drunk and dived in. Soon learned i liked the getting drunk more than trying to coax my pitiful talent, so stuck to the social side. Met some smashing people (who i still count as friends to this day, although we dont see each other very much), and some complete wierdos.
Many laughs, many heated debates, and many many hangovers - its been a blast.

Edit: Favourite memories - Ijon Tichy in a roman centurians outfit, Hillstomp playing a gig at 200%'s flat, the corridor bash, Fnord's fabulous m3tatween project, Freshlegs nearly buying a submarine, and many many hours giggling inanely whilst making a rubbish photoshop.

Edit Edit: And Stouffer's FOUR POUNDS.
