Rob "CmdrTaco" Malda Resigns From Slashdot
Thanks for providing me with amusement, information and distraction (not necessarily in that order) for the last 12 or 13 years.
A Brief History of Slashdot Part 1, Chips & Dips
Sept. 98 for 2000ish uid sounds about right. I (very vaguely) recall that I started reading slashdot in the fall of '98 about the time I first got interested in linux. I don't recall when registration started, but Alot of people joined in late '98 and uid's grew pretty rapidly.
