10 years of LG!

I realize that today marks my 10 years of being a member here on LG! Woah time flies!

Here's what I had written in my introduction post

Hey guys,

I'm rahmu, 21, I'm still a student in a software engineering school in Paris (I got here 2 years ago).

I'm a linux fan-boy, embarked on a quest to save the world from evil corporation domination, and bring computing back to its roots. During my quest I stumbled upon the site; thought I'd join the forum.

Going back to Beirut in 2 weeks to spend the summer, can't wait but I must say Internet is going to be sloooooow.

Anyways I've looked around and this forum looks really interesting, looks I'm gonna learn much here (hope I'll be able to give some knowledge back).

It's been such a fun ride. I learned so much on this website, met amazing people, and it's insane to think there are members here who have been around for longer than me! (The forum is 15 years old!!) Lebgeeks truly is an wonderful community and has definitely left its mark on the Lebanese tech landscape.

I guess I'm opening this topic to publicly thank Samer for creating this forum, way before Facebook or "social media" was a thing. Not only did he manage to maintain it for so long, but I also think his moderation/administration style has proved to be far more effective than any other Lebanese forum to date.

Here's to 10 more years! Never change LG!

Oh cool! Indeed it has been a fun ride though i miss the IRL gatherings :(. I myself have been here for 9 years, can't forget those horrible posts and my limited typing capabilities back then.

Still a linux fanboy 10 years later? Congratulations!
What happened to Mir, by the way, I lost trace of her, I hope she's well.

Relatively new here, 5 years :(
It is sad (and nice?) to see that old members are the most active, perhaps LG may need some advertising or say, a word spoken about for us to start to see new faces? It's getting kinda calm...

Re: 10 years of LG!

Thanks Joe, it's great to see you and so many other members of the community sticking around here for years!

I myself have been here for 9 years, can't forget those horrible posts and my limited typing capabilities back then

I remember those!

Thanks for being a part of this community.

You _are_ old, Aly :-)

What happened to Mir, by the way, I lost trace of her, I hope she's well.

I met her IRL a few years ago. She's living abroad and doing well.

We've had a lot cycles of high to low activity over the last 14 years. Hopefully, we can convince the members who are signing up every day to stick around and contribute quality content to the forum.

Hey Samer, Hope you are doing great! It would be really great if you do an IRL gathering. :( I remember you are working outside Lebanon so

Very close to my tenth year here! Great community indeed and so glad to have met some very interesting people and some of them have become good friends.
Now all we need is an IRL meetup.
