I'm still here and have probably been visiting or more often lurking on this forum for almost as many years as you.
However I actually didn't sign up until relatively recently when the other forum/site that helped educate me in things Xbox started to look like it was threatening to kick the bucket. Eventually it finally did so even though that was after a long lingering death. You can probably guess which one I'm talking about.
It is weird, or was weird until all those years of forum content disappeared, that sometimes I'd forgotten stuff or needed to recheck something and I do a Google search and come up with threads that I'd contributed to or even started there over 10 years ago.
What I try to do now is pass on some of the useful knowledge I've gained over the years in places like this. I'm learning new things even now and on many aspects compared to some of the real Xbox gurus both new and out there still regularly helping other users, I'm just not worthy.

It is getting tough to find information about the original Xbox these days. Even the X3 CE installation tutorial on Team Xecuters website is a broken link. If anyones modded Xbox breaks in the future you're going to have to go off the top of your head to fix it.... _________________

I stumbled across this thread 3.5 years too late. I still check out the site
from time to time, but not too often. After high school ended in 2011, I was
too busy with college and work to have time for video games. With the little
time I do get to play video games I'm a complete PC gamer convert now. While I
still have all 3 of my original Xboxes, I haven't played any of them in
probably 3-4 years. I play my Xbox 360 1-2 times a year. I haven't bothered to
buy any of the current generation consoles and don't plan to...
My humble beginnings were from this site though. It peaked my interest in
computers back in 8th grade, provided me with years of learning and fun, and I
could still mod an original Xbox to this day(with a little bit of thinking). What I did
on this site for many years led me to go to school for computer engineering,
and ultimately led to my job working at Intel on the next generation Core
processors. Glad to see there is a few of the old guard still kicking on the
site and very very glad to see that the site is still up. Many of the old
sites I remember from 2007-2009 no longer exist.
Edit: I also just noticed that I'm almost to my 10 year anniversary on this site. It is nearly impossible for me to believe I've been around for so long. It seems like only yesterday when I used to run home from school and check the forums daily for new topics.

Year may be wrong. I've been modding Xbox's since Spring 2003 ??. Don't think I purchase an ogXbox in Holiday season 2001 but waited until Christmas 2002 then a few months before modding it with an Xecuter 2.0 Pro that came with an external parallel port adapter to flash it. (x2p-01x2p-02, x2p-03 from archive.org's Wayback Machine)
P.S. Google search filter out some of the 360 and one riffraff by adding -360 -one to the search term (e.g., "xbox -360 -one modchip").
