Hi, I'm Thunderbirds101. Don't worry, I'm from the Internet. I'm the owner of this Wiki, but you probably know me best for my text-to-speech videos on my YouTube channel. My channel has surpassed 10,000 subscribers as of August 2015. Some of my video creations include the Microsoft Sam reads Stupid and Weird Signs series, Microsoft Sam reads Funny Windows Errors series, as well as more than 200+ videos I have uploaded.

Origins

Back in the day, I had no intentions of uploading videos of any kind. I joined YouTube on May 19, 2008. However, I did not upload a video until June 23, 2008. During this time, my channel had no real branding; instead, I took images and wallpapers from various video games and movies for my channel background and channel icon.

I have created more than two hundred videos. Many of my videos have received 10,000 plus views, while one, the original Microsoft Sam reads Stupid and Weird Signs, has collected over 350,000 views, currently standing as the most popular "Microsoft Sam reads Signs" video on YouTube in that category. I originally planned to upload "Microsoft Sam reads 10,000 digits of Pi" as my first video, but decided against it at the last minute. A few days after the original Stupid and Weird Signs video, I released the first video in the "Microsoft Sam reads Funny Windows Error Messages" miniseries, another series that became popular, especially parts two and four. After the miniseries ended, Thunderbirds101 began the very popular series Microsoft Sam reads Funny Windows Errors.

Subscriber count

Within the first week on YouTube, I had a grand total of 3 subscribers. In July, two months later, that number rose slightly to 7. By November, the number leaped to 114. By June 2009, the number blasted past the 500 mark. On October 2, 2009, at 5:15 PM PDT, my channel smashed the 1000 subscriber count, RIOTAGAINSTWMG being the 1000th subscriber. On April 28, 2010, my channel smashed the 2000 subscriber milestone, and by July 2010, cruised to 2600+ subscribers. By July 2011, my channel had collected over 5500 subscribers, on pace to break the 6000 mark by possibly late August. In 2012 and in 2014, my channel lost hundreds of subscribers following a purge under YouTube's subscriber cleansing system. In August 2015 I entered the five-digit subscriber club with 10,000 subscribers.
