I don't remember just when I stumbled into MacCentral, but it felt like home and I stayed. I was working a second shift, getting home around 2 or 3 AM and wide awake. I remember having to go to bed as the sun was rising if I was to get enough sleep before going back to work. I hated that shift, but enjoyed the fun and useful info, especially when Apple/Mac support was pretty rare. It was well before 9/11/01. That I do remember. 1998? 1999? 2000? Sometime in that time frame.
