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.

Happy Birthday B3ta!
9 years, 5 months and 21 days, Christ. I'd just joined the civil service and was a bit bored so my line manager showed me this ace website he'd found and we spend weeks giggling like loons. I'm still in the snivel service at pretty much the same grade as I have been ruined for hard work by places like this.

I wanted to be able to Photoshop kittens too so I found a shonky copy and started to learn. A few years later I got a graphics tablet and I have since contributed art for a few small press comics and have my own art-work online. It's all thanks to this place.

I've also got lots of (online mainly but that's because I am an anti-social git these days) friends as a result of the notorious early bashes. I can't listen to Laibach without thinking about Joel's Stomping Kittens.

I found this - I stole it off someone and it's 6 years out but it is appropriate:
geek cake

It's been lovely seeing so many old names - I feel a bit soppy now. Thanks to everyone who bought me drinks when I was undergoing financial apocalypse. I've nearly paid the debts off and life is much easier now. Those concerned made those early months so much easier with your kindnesss. /emotionalspacker
