Where is trickykid? My bet is on trickykid to be the oldest still active member.

trickykid has not been active in several years. I have not searched for my first post yet but it was around Aug 2002 when I first registered.

Being rated a veteran, like you (or a guru or a member of the 5K club).

i think the BBS where i first posted is totally vapor by now. it was around 1981. i can't remember the exact date. i was asking how many people in the area worked on mainframes. that was a word back then. the one and only reply was someone saying they had seen one, once.

i did have an Apple II back then. i have no idea what the BBS ran on but only one person could dial in at a time.
