I wasn't trying to be controversial- I thought (as always) if anyone could tell me the answer it would be here so already had a volunteer. As we (unlike the Chinese) start our ages being 0 years old for our first year most people who do assume everything else is counted the same way, but clearly can't now.

Wow... it's incredible that so many of you are still around. I am amazed at how difficult is for me to get rid of you all

What I really want to know is how Sypher managed to register before me in the forums!

I haven't been here as long as some of you, but I remember doing quizzes when I was still in primary school. Would've been about 2004ish? I recognise the front page layout on the 'back in time' thing.

Sorry doc, I missed you off the list, I didn't include anyone who hadn't posted recently. I will edit the post to add you to the list.

A tip for finding old threads since the display only lets us go back 6 pages...

Click on the 6, see what date comes up then change the number at the end of the url shown in the address bar, for instance this forum goes back to 30. Useful Tips and Tricks only goes back to 13.

Edited to say that the page numbers will depend on the number of topics you have set to display per page, the default is 30 but mine is set at 90.

Oh, that's cute, George! Sounds like he borrowed from Cecil Adams, who's been fighting ignorance since Hector was a pup.

I love hearing all these old stories! That frog has only quite recently departed. In fact, I thought he was still around, but can't locate him.

What I'd like to know is what Tweety-bird's about when you're looking for Treasure. I found the treasure so long ago I can't remember where it is. When I went looking, I found Tweety!

As Jane has set the precedent- today I reach double figures!

My unanswered question list had been around for some time and relied on the library or calling people who may know but still had quite a few mysteries. The day I got home internet I looked up trivia so I could see if I could get the answers I needed and also learn a lot more. And I'm still here.

I could believe that if she lived in Tornado Alley. If she was somewhere else, hmmm..........

She was the head moderator and didn't go to another forum that I am aware of.

Are you thinking of Jojo there? That fits the description, as Sue said Linda was in charge of the whole shebang for some time in the early days.
