V Planet Celebrates Three Years
(10/1/2002) V Planet's three years old, making the first 100% QuickBasic Game Review site one of the longest running active QB sites in the business.

After three long years, V Planet has done one of the rare things among QB sites, and that's to remain active for three years since it's launch back in September 23, 1999. And with that, we've run out of ideas on how to commemorate this benchmark.

So instead of dragging on about how updating for three years was a long and arduous task, instead we decided to recognize some of the great three-peats of the modern era. In no way is this an attempt to compare significantly different levels of acheivement; rather, once again we've run out of ideas, and perhaps this is the best way to symbolize the thanks the V Planet staff has for all the gamers and programmers who visit our site. The QB community has been very good to us and we can't thank you enough for your readership and support.

The Los Angeles Lakers
After defeating the New Jersey Nets on a rather anti-climactic but satisfying note, the Los Angeles Lakers completed the three-peat, thereby cementing their reputation as one of the great NBA dynasties. The recurring cast of characters in this lineup include Shaquille O' Neal, the dominant force and MVP behind all of this modern Laker team's Championship runs. Kobe Bryant makes his mark as the youngest NBA star to win three championships in a row, while coach Phil Jackson increases his reputation as one of the winningest NBA coaches of all time.

Tiger Woods
After winning the Bay Hill Invitational in 2002, Tiger Woods became the first player in professional golf to win three different events in three years, putting the 26-year old golfer in a league among champions. Tiger's achievements in golf through 2001 has given him career earnings beyond the $32 million mark, excluding endorsements.

Sammy Sosa
After an exciting home-run race with the now reitred heavy-hitter Mark MacGwire, Sammy Sosa continued his hot homerun streak on the Chicago Cubs by becoming the only player in the game to hit 50 or more homeruns for three years in a row. And with that, "Slammin'" Sammy Sosa proved that lightning can strike thrice on the field.

We Need Sleep
And now, for a more accurate representation of how we feel after working on V Planet for three years, all you need to do is take a look at the picture above, of Australian Open fans taking a snooze in line to make sure they get good seats. These people aren't athletes, and they sure don't fit the three-peat theme of this article, but they're determined to tough it out even if it means being deprived of sleep, and that's what working on a website is all about.
