I wish I could trace my own posts back to before Nov 11, 2001.

The earlier posts “next page” button dies at that point.

Boy, this site sure has undergone some changes since ‘98. Those early formats were hard on the eyes :)

DIdn’t have Internet service at home, so for some time lurked at work...Then they blocked the site for a while....Finally all the piece came together and Molly already had registered first choice of names....

At that time there was a competition for naming the woman's NBA team in Indianapolis. “Hoosiermamas” was up in the running...Some still think PC people intervened so that it wouldn't win....That and my own Hoosier mama died...So I took it in honor of mom and all the non PC ideas out there.

Of course it's all about the content. But, again, as an engine-nerd and looking at the FR budget... truly AMAZING! Amazing how much Jim has done with so little resources. Amazing that he's kept a clean simple interface for so long.

The CDC will probably issue an all clear.

Hope it’s not for a few years yet.

I did. And, I didn't know what the Drudge Report was at the time either. I was searching "Whitewater" on Yahoo...found Drudge then FR.
