6000th Anniversary

Post by Caretaker » Sun May 17, 2020 6:26 am

Happy 6000 !! Today is the 6000th day I have been on these boards. Sadly, I forgot to remember my 5000th anniversary. :roll:
Here's the website to put in the date of when you first (fill in the blank)........to see how many days it has been since:

You two die-hards have pretty much all of us beat. Very few active members like you two (Colonel Panic also) still contribute regularly to this forum. Don't EVER leave ;) I'm at 3780 at just over ten years.

I sure would like to make it to day 7000, but I doubt that will come true. I only do continual research so that when the Vibe does poop out I don't have to make a panic buy. Within minutes, I can log onto a myriad of auto buying services I am eligible for and get a good price on what I've researched. The current buzz is the forthcoming '21 Tucson due in the showroom this fall. I already have my spreadsheet filled out on all the things I dislike about the Seltos (ie: rear torsion bar on FWD models) and Crosstrek (no turn signals on side mirrors nor LED headlights on Premium trim) given the low end trim I normally gravitate towards to avoid the larger tires (rougher ride) and sunroof (not in hell's kitchen). I can then use my notes to make sure the next great new vehicle has what is missing on the competition. On the used car side should disaster befall my Vibe, is the fact that there are a boatload of HETs in Florida. I'd look into grabbing a 2012 which is the last year it was produced. While not built with Hyundai's best parts, the 2 liter engine is outstanding and it simply is the most versatile car ever built IMHO.

Yea, not really a heavy poster, obviously. I guess that's the introvert in me. Tbh, I never realized I joined the 2nd day either. Just looked and I was the 8th person to join here. memberlist.php 18+ years now. Just still wish matrixowners was still a thing.

I feel like a rookie compared to all of you.

The guy who owns MatrixOwners domain keeps re-registering it, but hasn't put it back online. I believe domain name expires again in 2 years.

Edit: based on the members list, I am the 26,287 member on it lol. Currently in the newest 15% of members. :lol:

Wow, that members list is fascinating. 11 pages of names registered in 2002. The amount of 0-3 posts over that 11 pages is incredible. I would never have guest given the lack of activity on this board over the past 5 years that so many people registered that first year.

You trailblazer you :lol: :lol: :lol: I calculated out my time here and as the 8995th member registered that puts me in the first 29.3% of total members. Which stands at 30718 today! Kind of makes me feel like I'm part of the early batch of members!

Yeah I would occasionally visit that site for reference although never active like here. Maybe there's a gleam of hope that it will come back? :?

548,332,200 seconds (give or take.) :lol:

I wonder how many members (whether active on the site or not) are still the original owners of their Vibes after all these years? I suspect my better half is in quite an exclusive club in that regard. Don't think we'll ever let this car go.

I probably would be, but had to sell my original 2003 Xrs as it was a 6-spd manual, and wasn't able to drive it after my motorcycle accident. Since then, I bought a 2008 Xr, sold that one and bought another 2003 Xrs in an auto which is the one I have now.

3643 days. Nearly 300,000,000 seconds.

And yet I'm considered an "OG" over in The Facebooks. I've seen a couple generations come and go in my nearly ten years. But relative to some here I'm still green.

Well, as of today, you have less than 624,000 seconds left to plan your 300,000,000 seconds anniversary party so you better hop to it.
