Via Chuq von Rospach: What is your earliest USENET post on Google Groups?
Mine dates to October 17, 1983 and was posted to net.sport.baseball [sic].
Boy, am I old or what.
Unrelated note: I’ve never met Chuq, but based on the odd photo of him I’ve seen from time to time, I look somewhat like him. I’m a little taller, I believe, and not quite as heavy — although if I don’t get off my butt soon, he’s going to pass me coming down. Also, compared to his current weblog page, I have less forehead and much less gray in my beard. 😉 That’s OK, because I believe he’s got a couple of years on me too.
No significance to any of that, except it’s fun to have some connection to a bone fide net.god. 🙂
