How did you find us?
« on: January 04, 2010, 08:15:43 AM »
I've often wondered how new people discover us and which of our methods of promoting ourselves is most effective. So if you've been here for 6+ years like myself or even if you're just now discovering FITES, vote in the poll above and let us know. We're always looking to grow and by knowing which methods work and which don't we can hopefully get better results in the future from our "marketing" efforts.

Thank you,

FITES Staff
Please just walk away. I don't want to have to stand here and say something so awesome that I'll have to remember it the rest of the day. Thank you!

Dave told me about it after the "GALT" Lan group was scrambling for a building and losing steam.  Never looked back since.

I honestly can't remember how I found it. It was back in September of '03, and I was fresh out of high school. I think I found it through http://www.lanpartymap.com/ because I had just bought a new case from Xoxide around that time.

Some of the guys at FiTHLan had mentioned going to Fites LANs and then Pride asked me to come down and help out with the big LAN in 2006.  Have been hanging around ever since.

What if bodies just had random errors like computers do?

I think "circus" is a more accurate term. Freakshow. Sanitarium.
