07-21-2002, 11:24 AM
er, well i guess you could call me an 'oldtimer' haha... uhh it's been on and off a few, and i honestly don't remember when i found these boards... but once i did, phoosh goes all the time i used to spend on more 'productive' stuff... hah hah

it was probably a search engine or something, can someone enlighten me?

oh and i know this has been asked before, but right about now we have a new generation of boarders, so... have at it...

Probably from yahoo......but I do have a feeling it could have been a link @ Programmers Heaven......

Not easy to remember

Google's the culprit!!

I searched for "C++ Programming Tutorials" on Google. The rest is history.

Got banned at http://www.unix.com for a silly reason and when i searched google for more C Boards, found this.

07-21-2002, 12:06 PM
no idea, and it was only yesterday heh heh.
I think a search engine is the most likely culprit.

you'll have to excuse C_Coder, he was reprogramed to lie beyond belief when God [Romero] reincarnated him...

Site is listed in Deitel's textbook.

>>Directed here by former member/moderator.

That might have been a clue. ;)

I dont recal how I found this site. I believe a search engine. I do know that I had it bookmarked for quite some time before I ever started coming on any regular basis. Ahh... back in the day... ;)

Searched Google for a C Programming Board. Good old Google!

07-21-2002, 01:02 PM
Somebody on the boards at opengl.org directed me here I think.

Damm, you got me.

07-21-2002, 01:22 PM
I think I was just randomly putting in addresses with programming, and though, hey "C Programming!"

07-21-2002, 05:31 PM

I got pised at the search engine, so I typed in what I wanted


07-21-2002, 06:09 PM
I'm pretty sure I found it throught Google... while I was supposed to be doing more important things in class :)

07-21-2002, 06:40 PM
ah yes you could call me an old timer too...

been around since the old board days...

i remember how i came to find this site

I wanted to find a good site that gave me information on several C++ topics. The first site I tried was www.cplusplus.com , but that site had not even been created yet. (It has been created now, but it isnt that great of a site if you ask me).

So then I went to altavista and did a search, found this site...and have been here ever since...

07-21-2002, 07:03 PM
I'm another one for google.com :) Damn search engine knows everything :D

I was originally interested in the Journel Newsletter, but since I've signed up, I haven't received one.... but whilst waiting I decided to help out and answer a couple of questions on the C board......

vbprogrammig.com -- DOH!
aspprogramming.com -- DOH!
javaprogramming.com -- :o
cprogramming.com -- AHH! :) :cool:

i never searched in a search engine....it was just random url typing in the old address bar :D and that's how i found this site!

07-22-2002, 11:52 AM
Yahoo. Needed help on a C problem. It's been awhiles ago but now I understand the joy of posting on these boards :)

07-22-2002, 12:09 PM
umm... i think it was through www.unix.com but I can't be sure about that... i might have just typed it in looking for programming resources.

07-22-2002, 12:11 PM
Being the uB3|2 1337 h@X0r I am, I typed in www.cprogramming.com.
