I thought one could just look at the 'joined on' date in the posts' mini-profile under our usernames, but I see a bunch of March 2004 people replying here that they joined before 2004. I guess that means something happened then to make a bunch of users reset their accounts.
I don't remember when I joined, but Mon Sep 01, 2008 2:44 pm sounds about right. I changed my username about a year ago, I used to be gardendance, but I thought it probably wasn't a good idea to use my real name, so I picked my current unassuming alias to try to maintain internet anonyminity.
I was trolling around at trains.com, somebody there posted 'Guess what, there are other foamer sites out there...', one of the ones he listed was railroad.net
This tends to be the site I check, and post on, the most, mainly because it's got these geographical based fora. I was born and raised in Philadelphia, so I like to be able to look at the Septa forum. Since my wife forced me to move to New Jersey I also check the 2 NJ fora, NJ Transit Rail and NJ Transit Light Rail, and whenever life gives me nothing else to do I'll graze around the other topics, as I did here in order to see and reply to this one.
