    Man, somebody get me a doctor!!
    When I bought my new computer last February I can remember that night hooking up the internet access and around 10:30 -11:00 PM finding this site called vhlinks.com
    Like a beat puppy I have followed all of this stuff(with no commentary on my part for a few months) with my tail between my legs.
    Damn it.......I hate it but I love it.

    I found this site on October 13 1999, on Sammy Hagar's birthday! I remember I thought it was so awesome finding a site with fellow VH fans writing about Van Halen. I don't know anyone who love VH half as much as me, so it was great to find out that other people really cared about the band.
    I found this site from a link from the VHND. I guess you could say i'm one of the "old school" VHLinkers since i've been here from almost the very beginning.

    I started looking for the moonbeam on November 16, 1999. I had actually found the site a few days before that, but didn't register until then.

    I found this site in November of 99. I lurked for about a month, then I put on my hip waders and registered.

    It has been a roller coaster ride of speculation and rumors. I wish I had a dime for every time we got burned ny a date or awards show.

    It was November 9, 1999 I think. I was working at an internship in computing. I had my own computer, and LOTS of free time. Like a good worker I wasted time on the web. I found VHLINKS and thought it was pretty cool, although it just seemed like any other message board. A few days later Gary was out, and the rumors started flying. Ever since, the steady stream of rumors and drama has hooked me. This site has exploded from 'just another message board', to almost a second home for me (or third if you count my girlfriends)

    I started lurking a few weeks after Gary left. I think I actually picked up on the site via usenet. Didn't start posting until May - now I wish I had started long before that.

    I found it in like January or February. It was a welcome change from the AOL board, where I was a big poster. Now, instead of going once a day to look at maybe 2 messages, I'm checking this hog out 4 times a day! Thanks Brett for making such a kickass site and keeping me from my homework!

    I started checking out this VH site somewhere around 1978. Back then the interface was all DOS commands, but it was still pretty cool.

    Yeah, but at least Brett had a link up so you could play Pong while your posts were being loaded.

    Gary's departure was announced on November 5th, 1999.

    I came here on December 28th, 1999.

    What a roller coaster ride this has been.

    I don't know if anything in particular was happening April 19 or if I was just in a "let's see if there's anything going on with Van Halen" mode, but I went to one site and ended up linking here and saw there was a discussion forum, which I had no plans to join, but I'd browse and see what people were saying. Well, I figured, what the f**k, maybe I can find out some info on the concert I went to in 1981 and so I signed up and posted and have been devoid of spare time since!
