Default Just realised....

It is 10 years this month I have been a member of BE! Wow a lot changes. Joined to get info on our move to Oz. Since then, spent 8 years in Oz and now back in the UK

That was the month I joined - but you are claiming a couple of months earlier than the date shown.

I'm confused too. I didn't claim anything. But I did ask a question. Do you know?

ETA: Never mind, it seems the answer is 1997.

Sorry, my fault, It was VeryStormy that claimed an earlier date.

And I don't have an answer - but Sue would know. She doesn't post very often these days AFAIK, but I will send her a PM and see if she responds.

Thanks, that's an itch scratched. My 1997 guess was based on the BE twitter feed, started in 2009, which says "founded 15 years ago".

Porkies? Or did it start on usernet or whatever it was called?

I think usernet was pre BE. Paul and Sue founded BE as above.

Is it true that the site has an extra-terrestrial origin ?
