In 1997 it was browsed on boxen that ate 300 watts, ran a blazing 133MHz Pentium running Windows 95, and a dial up. Formatting was wild-West and anyone could screw up a thread with naughty or erroneous HTML. Posting large graphics was a definite no no.

Now it’s on little power sipping laptops running insane numbers of gigahertz, with Windows 7 or maybe Ubuntu or another flavor of Linux, broadband Internet (full videos are nuthin’) and threads are bullet proof. Servers aren’t always bullet proof, however....

I remember those big threads.

THAT was what made me learn enough HTML to keep FR clean.

I had actually been guilty of not closing a color and font size. It was HUGELY red for more refreshes than I embarrassingly want to remember until someone cleaned it up

There literally is nothing like FR anywhere else on the web.

This is it. PS: Mr. Thompson and gang I didn’t forget my pledge, just haven’t mailed it yet. Thank you sincerely for FR.

Jim, you have truly been the forefront in the fight for our freedoms over these many years.

You have actually changed some of the direction this country was headed for...or at least slowed it down.

Once again, thank you.

I join with all the other old-timers in thanking you, Jim, for many years on information, education, sharing, and support.

You have given us a place to call home here in the web, and a place where we can find the truth. We are so grateful.

Happy Anniversary, Jim Robinson. I personally think Free Republic is absolutely wonderful. I haven’t heard the story about how and why you came up with a FR idea/concept but that doesn’t matter. You help a tremendous amount of people express their conservative opinions and support each other’s viewpoints. You are a G*d send!

anyone could screw up a thread with naughty or erroneous HTML

Everything would be in bold or some weird color, or be very small or huge font for several replies until someone closed the HTML code.

But it was fun, and it was the only place on the web that I knew of where conservatives could exchange information. I learned a lot just by following the discussions between other folks.

Thanks, Jim Robinson. You have done a great thing for conservatism and for America.
