    Jon's first post was March 28, 2006, so that is my guess.

    Wasn't there some problem and they had to erase everything and start over? I was here April 26 2006 and I thought we had some crash. Then our past threads were lost. Could be wrong though as it may have been another site like the multitool forum.

    As I recall, there is a bit of irony in it being Jons site, but his join date was a little later than the actual site launch and there were some staff and mods with earlier dates of joining and posting... As I recall it anyway. It has been a while ago ;)

    Also IIRC the first(big) crash was in real late 2006 or mid 2007, I get the feeling the forum was about a year or so old when that happened...

    (yes, I've been here that long, I'm on my third user account, so my current join date doesn't jive)

    The funny thing was, Jon wasn't the first post. When the site went live, someone beat him to it. :eek:

    I'm "only" 31. Used to watch all those older cartoons as reruns on Nickelodeon growing up. Still better than the garbage on now I say :D
