History of Modding - Anyone?
« on: February 23, 2003, 08:51:56 PM »

OK, I was curious and did a search (GT search) on "History of Modding" and, to my dismay, got no results!?!?

So I'm led to ask the question about when and where modding was born... Now, Im sure this thread may have the potential to turn into one of those 10-pagers, with ppl posting 1 and 2-word replies to rack up karma, but let's try to make this an educated approach.
I'm not throwing out flame bait with that remark, guys, but seriously, Im damn curious about who the hell decided to slap a window on his case some day long ago... who started putting more fans on his case (although the whole fan craze got WAY outta hand, and luckily due to water-cooling, fan usage is calming down). Who actually thought that their HD, of all things, needed a separate cooling facility? The list goes on...

And modding today, of all things, has led to wild notions of water-cooling keyboard and mice! :) (that link/thread was nuts). At least we know modding does have its limits.  :D

OK, Im looking forward to hearing whatever wisdom you guys can muster.  And thanks in advance,

im guessing that it just started with smart ppl who were knowledgeable in computers(geeks), and decided that perhaps modifying a computer would make it look "cool", iono just a thought
