1. Welcome to TalkBass 2014! If you're new here, we just went through a major site upgrade. Please post all concerns and bugs to the Forum Usage Issues forum. We will be monitoring that forum. Thank you for all of your feedback.

    The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)

    Please read the TalkBass 2014 FAQ for lots of great info on the new software.

    On March 3, I will have been a member of TalkBass for ten years. That is a long damn time! I have been a member of another forum for sixteen or fifteen years, so I guess my interests gave been consistent. I guess I am just really good at wasting time!

    Wow, you made me realise it's going to be my 10th year, next year. I'm almost as good as you are on wasting time.:p

    I'm about to have a 30 year old crysis very soon and that didn't help at all...:bawl:

    Meh, I think time wasting is a guilt trip we put on ourselves when maybe it isn't necessary. Relaxation is a part of a balanced life, and time I spend here is better than watching mindless passive entertainment, I learn a lot. If it's not causing us to neglect our responsibilities, what's wrong.? And even regarding stuff that has to get done, some is truly important, some not so much. A wise friend said we will all have a full in box on the day we check out.

    I like to imagine that the overwhelming majority of Talkbass, myself included, would be committing acts of unspeakable evil if we didn't sublimate the torturous monsters inside us towards bass related discussion.

    Think of those 10 years as time spent keeping the general public far, far safer.

    Almost 12 for me. Though, looking at my total post count, your's dwarfs mine by a long shot. I come here for enjoyment and to learn, but that's about it. I'm good at limiting how much time I actually spend on this site versus away from it.

    I'm about a month and a half away from 9 years....

    Admittedly, I do "waste some time" here, but for the most part I don't look at it like wasted time. I learn a lot, I make some friends, I get entertained....that's not a waste of time in my book! :bassist:

    Almost 7 years for me, but at this point - I can't imagine not coming here, but I still come mainly for the bass related forums.

    I, uh, 've been here 5 years apparently. :eek: How'd that happen?!

    Reminds me of a story. I was talking to an old friend awhile back about one of the last bands I played drums in and we were talking about when that was. I said it was about 10 years ago. He said, "no, that was around the same time as [blah blah]". I said, "Yeah, that was 10 years ago". He just paused and thought for a second. Then he said, "Wow, you just blew my mind". All I could say was, "Funny how that works, isn't it?"
