I first found LMG through tech quickie when I first got into computers and was doing research. I subscribed after a few videos but quickly unsubscribed because i didn’t think the new videos (at that time) were relevant to what I was trying to learn. A few weeks later I found ltt and then became of a fan. I have since subscribed to all LMG channels (and have even been mentioned in a few) and will hopefully joint floatplane soon.

I am far from an expert in this so please correct me if I’m wrong.

My Brother actually showed me LTT on YouTube in 2013 and it also was the first ever Channel I subscribed to shortly after creating my Google account. And specifically this is the Video that he showed me and I got hooked immediately:

He got me into Tech and Computers in 2009 when I was 7 by giving me my first ever Computer with Windows XP and man was it awesome. So yeah I've been following LTT for basically 7 years now and have been a Member on this awesome Forum for 4 years now which enabled me to meet a lot of cool people and make some really good friends.

I was on twitch one day years ago and a long-gone user @Flight1sim Was having an issue with their computer. I don’t remember what it was, but I think I ended up solving the issue. He suggested I joined the LTT forum since I seemed very knowledgeable, so that’s what I did. I created an account in 2015 and answered lots of people’s questions, then around 2018 I started using the forum for exclusively shitposting in my status updates. I use the LTT forum almost as social media now.

 

I think the biggest reason I like to use the LTT forum over social media is because the community here (including me) is really well policed. I don’t want to see angry one-sided politics or whatever fake news the mainstream media has drummed up in their status updates. I want to see cool projects people are working on, that actually make a tiny positive difference in the world. Stuff like whatever @Schnoz is doing to fix computers, @Den-Fi’s amazing photos I could never replicate, @James Evens 3D printing adventures, whatever @TopHatProductions115 or @LienusLateTips is doing with computers today, @kelvinhall05 southpaw75 project for keyboard enthusiasts I didn’t even know existed, or @Damascus very niche hobby of SFF PCs. I’ll even throw in @givingtnt for reminding me when I need to stop being so pretentious.

 

The long term-members that have been on the forum for at least 2 years are doing some really cool things, and I appreciate being part of that community. Nobody around my area really understands PC related topics, so the forum gives us an outlet for that. If you decide to stick around the forum, you too will meet other members doing some really awesome things with their time.

 

PS: I barely even watch LTT videos anymore. Over the years I’ve become sort of bored and am more of a Gamers Nexus or Derb8uer fan these days because of their technology deep-dives. But the people on the LTT forum have kept me around.

I don't really know honestly. I think I found them through one of those late night, that turns into early morning, YouTube rabbit holes. Pretty sure I started out watching MLP:FIM before falling into that hole. Oh well. I like it down here.

Fallout 4 didn’t work on my laptop & I needed to build a desktop to play it. 

 

Then fallout 4 sucked so I watched more videos. 

Don’t take any of my posts seriously.

I was getting ready to cancel my main entertainment source at the time, direct tv satellite service because 🤪 they are crazy.

For how they charge and what you get.

Even though I had computers and been gaming for many years. Oddly I had never tried youtube.

So I started watching.

Linus seem friendly, nice, the tech angle was interesting and there was this guy with him on some of the first videos I watched that was very funny.

I think he was like Russian or something I don't know but Linus and him had me laughing.

After some time now I watch LTT videos regularly.

😁

Back in the before days I wasn't into computers, but when starting a certain study a friend in class was like "hey, a YouTube channel released a new video, wanna watch it?" and so we did. It was an LTT video, can't remember exactly which it was; but it probably was around the time of the end of 2013.

 

From there, I ended up watching some more videos, getting interested in tech, joining the forum (<- after participating in a bunch of giveaways here I actually became an active member) and now I am still here.

Yeah I have watched like every LMG video from all Channels from 2013/2014 till now. I'm looking forward to signing up for Floatplane to also watch all of the Behind the Scenes videos, I hope they have made Playlists for each Category of videos like on YouTube so that I can just binge watch the whole Bts folder at once. The only LMG Channel that I don't watch is Carpool Critics actually, because I'm not able to watch any movies or series yet. Will have to sign up for Netflix and the likes for that, I've got a long list of Movies and TV Shows I gotta watch through before looking for new content and I think that's gonna take me a while.

As a Hat of Destruction (Hakaishin for universe 12), I am required to destroy any universes that are no longer worth preserving. LTT/LMG was one of the only things that led to your precious universe being spared. I'll be back when that changes ;)

I was watching porn and in the comments the most up voted one was "is that Linus tech tips the way he dropped that girl" in the video the guy dropped the girl on the couch a few times. I still don't get what it means but I googled Linus tech tips and binged a ton of videos then made an account here.

I didn't know he had left, I thought he might still be working there behind the scenes or something.

I thought I heard Linus say one time that he had something like 31 employees.

So that's why I thought he might still be there. 

I was wondering why I have not seen him in any LTT videos since that time?

That dude was funny.

I like comedy with my tech sometimes. 😁

If I remember correctly, Ivan was only at LTT temporarily, as NCIX shut down.

It might have been an old video I was watching.

I was new to youtube then and I probably didn't even look at the date on it.

Honestly I still don't look at or use a lot of the stuff on it.

Some of it doesn't make sense to me.
