First Message Board...
« on: April 23, 2007, 09:34:59 AM »

You were ever on?

My first was the old Northern Auto Racing Club board, way back in 2000. I joined Hoseheads about the same time.

Those were the days...

FGI was my first.  Before then I made fun of people that participated on message boards.

Prior to teh interwebs as we currently know them I was quite involved in a couple of usenet discussion groups, primarily those about music. Usenet groups with names like alt.music.mighty.mighty.bosstones.discussions.about.their.songs.and.albums.and.other.random.stuff were not uncommon.

I hung out a lot on usenet in college.  In the early days of the X-files, I used to dial in with my modem into a local fan BBS and chat about episodes.

The first web board that I spent time on where I posted more than just a few posts was Silicon Investor/techstocks.

rec.auto.sport.nascar  on Usenet back in 1992ish(?) using Pine. Text only. Usenet is Use-less-net now I'm afraid.

I was on some BBSs' prior to that but I can't remember what they were, local houston chat as I recall. I used AOL 1.something as well. It came with GeoWorks. OK, ok... thats more than you asked for, sorry. Grin

rec.motorcycles, then the Dynacraft board, then FGI.

Then it really spiraled out of control.  Thank God for the new firewall and Big Brother.

Some Smalltalk usenet group.  It's been ages.  Don't remember the address.

Very good implementation though.  If the board sent you five doesNotUnderstand: messages in a week you had to sit in a corner and reflect upon yourself for a while.
