The earliest post I can find for myself, using the Google search function, is Mar 1 1999 to RBR and a bit later to RBM. I then called myself dfox, consistent with my then email address. Since AOL no longer carries USENET, I can't search there, and I don't know whether or not Google searches back before 1999. I do believe I posted prior to that time. Also, prior to that time I was active on a bulletin board or two, but I can't remember what they were! When was the earliest post (of anyone currently around/posting) to RBR or RBM?
