It's My Birthday!!!
The Wayback Machine ^ | 7/22/2014 | FP

Posted on 07/22/2014 8:51:58 AM PDT by Focault's Pendulum

Signed up July 22, 1999. Please help me celebrate and take look at the linked post

At the time, it was the second longest thread on FR.

The longest was Arthur McGowan's "Please Don't Ping Me." It had 1100 replies.

So click the link to see some old friends, many are still here. Unfortunately some have passed on or passed out.

Happy Birthday! I’ve read Please Don’t Ping Me. It was very funny. I didn’t see the name for your second longest post. Did I miss something?

No. Somehow the post didn't do the usual excerpt link. Probably because I didn't click "this an excerpt."

See my reply #3.

I’ve been here since April 1998, but under a different screen name.

I’d call you a newbie, but there are others around who have me beat.

I’ve been here since April 1998, but under a different screen name.

An acquaintance turned me on to FR and I was a lurker for many tears before I signed up. He told me that he is on his 4th screen name (since 1999). He admits to behaving badly at times and has had to start over. I guess he cleaned up his act because he hasn't been banned since 2008. Anyway, happy birthday!

Congrats. I’ll celebrate 11 years on FR tomorrow. I signed up when the TX dims ran and hid in OK and NM to protest the redistricting in Texas.

I was nearly 11 months old myself when you were born. It’s been a pleasure to be a fellow traveler these 15 years.

Congrats Arrowhead1952!

The older threads were lost when the first server changeover occurred. they can sometimes be found on The Wayback Machine.

Quick story. I found FR because of Ann Coulter. Met her several years later. She was being interviewed on TV while I was on my PC. She mentioned FR and I immediately found the site.

I instantly signed up. I couldn't think of a screen name. I glanced at my bookcase and who do you think I saw? I than promptly misspelled it.

I'd lurked for a few months or maybe even more than a year when I heard Rush say: "The FReepers are going crazy about (forgot the subject)" but hunted FR down from there. I well remember the Dan RaTHer fake but accurate issues.
