Can any body tell me how old is wired pakistan ?
WP was there when you were learning to troll.. er.. crawl
I want a decent answer
invalid question, wiredpakistan is very young
(In old voice)
My dear Child It happened a long long ago when there were dinosaurs and land was erupting, 9000 cold times ago!
I think start of 2008(duno exactly).
at the start of 2008 the forums were hacked by some random hacker cuz its script was not up to date....
IT ALL GOT STARTED WITH THIS ARTICLE:
- this above article got lots of attention and i believe it was published in SPIDER magazine also. and i guess WP really picked on from there.
- at first WP was hosted in offroadpakistan.com
- i have been with this forum from the start when there were less than 50 members, so i can proudly say that i have seen all the phases this forum has gone through, well i could have been MOD here as being the most senior member here, but i am very outspoken person so term moderation really doesn't go along with my personality, but in other hand i am the most banned person in this forum. and deep down ko AND mods do love me no matter how many times they ban me.
- BOTTOM LINE IS IF YOU LIVE IN PAKISTAN OR VISITING PAKISTAN ON VACATION, THIS IS THE BEST FORUM FOR ONE STOP FIRST HAND INFORMATION ON DESI TECH SCENE.

Thats his personal blog.He must be probably among the oldest(not age wise) and earliest blogger active ever since blogging phenomenon became popular here. I do remember faisal qureshi's personal blog from early days as well.[quote=", post:, topic:"]
ask ASAD he might know this
hmmm back then most of us were on 56k dialup. GoCDMA, worldcall wireless, 64kbps and 124kbps DSL/ISDN was a BIG DEAL at that time. These connections were damn expensive.... out of reach for a middle class home user...... we used to think even our children won't be able to use 512kbps .. but the conditions these days are quite good w.r.t internet speed MashAllah.
Some of the oldest members I still see here are sheikh_chilli, sah, asif139 (something like this), and kuya (Sorry if I missed anyone). Asad and AbbasJin also joined later but still the forum was in its beginnings.
Most of the users from Karachi were on worldcall cable and it was the most cursed ISP at that time
After quite some years Ali Maskatiya joined this forum and he announced the launch of Maxcom. They had the most attractive packages that time, quality wise as well as price wise. IT all started after the launch of Maxcom.
P.S As far as I remember, the forum was started in 2005.
