Some time ago I though to myself: oh dear, it's been almost ten years now that you are into this nerdy audio forum. Well, I remember I came over here from r3mix, which had been at least as nerdy but certainly much less substantial than hydrogenaudio prooved to be. And most fataly: it had no TOS#8

I wondered when exactly Dibrom opened hydrogenaudio (aka Project Mayhem) to the public and found a post in the Winamp forums by JohnV, dating from September 30th 2001:

The forum is just over 24hours old, so don't expect yet completely full message sections. Things are looking very nice though... smile.gif So check it out and register your nick.

Although earliest registrations date from September 18th, I guess we can trust JohnV that hydrogenaudio.org was opened to the public on September 29th 2001, which is exactly 10 years ago today. The earliest snapshop of the forum archived at web.archive.org dates from March 2002 though.

Yeah, I know, we nerds tend to be a bit ahistorical, but we like to have a party sometimes, don't we?
