Happy 12th Birthday to Christian and Dennis

Happy 12th birthday to altenbach  and Dennis Knutson  

 

Although I think they have been here longer than that, in whatever form this place existed. But whatever - at least twelve years helping people with LabVIEW is very impressive!

Thanks, I think there are quite a few more with that day, and more coming up in the next days.

Re: Happy 12th Birthday to Christian and Dennis

Why is that? Is that when some usenet group or mailing list transitioned to the forums?

Yes sir!

 

An e-mail went out and the forums were born. I did have an account that started the first day but due to techincal dificulties, it was correupted and Daniel Mc Chane* asked to just start a new one.

 

BTW:

 

Did you use LV to compute the age?

So it is actually Happy 12th 11th Birthday to the Forums!

 

By the way I noticed something interesting. Your user id and Christian's user id are a bigger number than mine although my registration date is about a year later. Strange.

 

However I don't consider myself an old-timer but a relative newcomer. I started working as a technician with a small group of engineers doing electrical validation and I created my first LabVIEW application in 2001 to automate some simple but time consuming tests. Thankfully I cannot open it anymore without an upconvert request from version 5 (or was it 4?). I remember the program was nothing but stacked sequence structures and local variables. Things got very busy and as the only technician I had to spend all my time doing manual testing and had no time to write LabVIEW programs to do them. My account here sat idle for a long time. Now we have more technicians so I get to spend a lot more time learning and writing LabVIEW.

Should I have? :smileyvery-happy:

Like I said, the old account ( I believe it was 59XX ) got corrupted so I had to reregister so that is why my number is newer than yours.

 

When it comes to measuring time deltas, I reach for LV to help out. Case in point: It was not until Olivia was born that I realized that my father was 25 when I was born, and I was 25 when my son was born as was the case with my son when Olivia was born. You would think I would have noticed that.

Re: Happy 12th Birthday to Christian and Dennis

I thought when you reregistered you would get a new user id and new registration date. It seems like the very early stuff is all messed up. The oldest user id I could find is 105. The person registered 1/25/2001 but their first post was 6/16/1999. By the way his question remains unanswered. Is anybody going to help him out? :smileyhappy:

When I first showed up there were already stuff in the forum. I think it was internal to NI for a while before the rest of got in. See this thread.

[ Edited ]

Before, there was the comp.lang.labview newsgroup. For many years, it was mirrored to the labview forum.

 

From the looks of it, it has been abandoned with the last LabVIEW question a couple of months ago and now overgrown with shoe spam and conspirators. Seems like the perfect place for our friend alpha1. :smileyvery-happy:

 

(Well, that last post seems to be a job offer, but I dont think it is LabVIEW related. :smileysurprised:)
