Downloaded the demo in November 21, 2001 (according to the timestamp -- yes, I still have a copy of the demo :shocked:) after following a link from Home of the Underdogs and opened the full version as a Christmas gift on December 25, 2001.  Finally got around to joining this lovely forum in April 2002 (I think it was April 26).

How 'bout all you peeps?

I got the thing at the end of October 2001, about a month after it was realeased. Though thats mainly because I had to wait for ages for delivery ;)

I first heard about Uplink from a friend of mine in late January of 2002. I downloaded and played the demo and I was hooked. 3 hours later I bought the game. I joined up on the forums and was waiting for my cd to arrive. And then bang, my monitor broke. Uplink arrived but I had to wait 2 weeks before we got a new monitor.

I traveled the same road as Spectre, was at Underdogs and saw this sweet little game (What?! No D/L?!? Dog Balls!), and decided to check it out, bought it a few weeks later.

Cheers! :cool:

Can't even remember how long it's been.. if I recall correctly, was booted over to the site either from a friend or from a quick little Penny Arcade blurb, but can't remember which came first. Er.. either/or, went through the demo and poked at it for about a half-month, then ordered right in time for the great CD shortage. In either case, my forum-join places it at about September of 2001. (I usually lag about a month before joining the forums for anything)

Got the demo last summer I think when a friend told me about it, claiming he had found the coolest game of all time (I think he was right) and then I bought it with my birthday money soon after (once I had pretty much conquered the demo)

Downloaded the demo almost immediately after they put it onto HotU...

Bought the game about four days later.

And used to be active around here, but anymore I just lurk. Too busy working these days, wish police dispatch paid a reasonable amount...
Indeed.

I played the demo when it was on the PC Gamer CD, played that for a month or so, then ordered the full game about February last year. Waited a day and a half until it arrived, then joined the forums.
