What year did you first find out about and start using Unlimited Adventures?  Pick only one.

Found out about it in 1995 (and thus my vote).

Didn't start using it until 1996.

1993, but didn't glom onto the AOL community until a year or so later. Made small, personal mods for the family to play as side adventures to the P&P game we had going.

What if you've never played/used it? I first downloaded it a month or two ago, and loaded it straight into IDA Pro, but I've not actaully ran it yet...

edit: Just noticed the "found out about" clause, and the new 2010 option.

I bought UA in 1993, after reading this (http://www.kultboy.com/index.php?site=t&id=3006) article.

I put 2009, which was when I first actually starting playing my first module.  From the file dates on my PC, though, it was 2007 when I downloaded it along with various other abandonware games.  I let it sit idle for a while, not realizing there were tons of adventures awaiting.  For whatever reason, almost 2 years later, I went Googling FRUA, discovered Rosedragon and the forum, and the rest is history.  The rest being most of my free time playing FRUA mods.  HA!

saw it in a store back in high school (1993 I think...). had played various goldbox games before and just HAD to have it.
Didn't find out about the groups of people who modded until years later, after I got my first internet connection.

I found it in 1993 (or was it 1994? can't remember). I was absolutely enthralled with the idea of generating your own adventures. I developed lot's of modules in those times (mostly trash that do not deserve to be sent anywhere), but since there was no wide-spread Internet in those times (only some BBSs) the only way was giving my modules to my friends in the hope they will play them. Ahhh.... I hope I find them somewhere, at least to bring back old memories.

For me I played Legends of the Red Dragon on BBS back in the 1990's (I was never really introduced to the D&D games then) then in 2008 through telnet and internet I started to play LORD again. 

During 2008 I read a BBS forum message (during LORD gameplay) about a guy using dosbox to play old dos games. I loaded boxer on my Mac discovering UA and other games at that time.

However at the time because I like the text side of gaming (looking or a LORD like game) I only really played SSI's Wizards crown. But in 2010 I played the Krynn series and downloaded a few modules for UA. But now I'm really enjoying the Gold Box series etc.

Found out about FRUA around 1995.
Tried it first in 2009.
Only been playing it seriously since 2012.

Where do I put my vote?
