This is a fun game, I like it.  Try to find the oldest evidence of you
being on the net.  Can't be on a site you own or maintain.

You got me beat ;-)  Very nice to see a FIDO net address btw... that
brings me back.  Oldest I can find is using the "way back machine" - April
10, 1997.  But I know I registered the domain in 95 when it was free (the
only reason i did register it because it was free).


Linux Content : The machine I ran warped.org on a year or two after that
time was running Mandrake 7.x.  We let it sit with the buggiest oldest
kernel online and it got to 550 days uptime before we finally got
embarassed about the amount of security holes and the age of the kernel.

It was a Penguin Computing 1u box co'lod at above.net in san jose.  At
that time I was pretty convinced that Linux was going to take over the
world.  So far it's only taken over the server world.
