Great Scott, the man has hair!  Thought I'd never live to see the day.

Absolutely!  I actually can think of 10 or so who were around in 1992 who
still post now and again. Hmmm, come to think of it, I think there might be
about 15 others.

So no, by I absolutely do NOT claim to be the earliest list member still
around, but in terms of the entire life of the fandom and the list, I
believe I wouldn't be incorrect in calling myself one of the first.

Eighteen years, holy smokes, the enormity of it hadn't actually sunk in
until I read your post.

Suddenly I can just imagine LaCroix reflecting on his life so far, thinking
"Wow I really AM old!".   (not that I can recall LC ever saying "wow" :-) ).
Oh no, visions of Babylon 5 are slipping through as well, though I laugh at
the image of myself as one of the reclusive First Ones who bark out the word
ZOG!!! when they're recally cranky.   (BTW that means "no" as I recall)

Actually don't knock it, I think it's a fantastic idea!  I know there are
those who archive specific aspects of the show and/or the fandom (for
example, fiction - naturally, episode synopses, fan events, actor/actress
careers, etc), but I can't think of anyone ever wanting to record our list
digests.  I'm sorry to say I didn't do so myself, but there has to be
SOMEONE who did it.

Oh, that.  I haven't seen THAT particular four letter word for many years
and was hoping never to see it again (nothing against you, of course, just
the whole experience of the thing).  I have a feeling I know what comes next
from here.

This is also a reason I'd say it would be unofficial and just for random
trash talk/chat.  It'd be really cool if we could get #fkwar trending as a
topic... might be a little publicity.  :)

I'm not sure as to the status of IRC these days.

Subject: Admin: Going to War topic for war-related posts

It's Monday so as of now, posts to Forkni-l or Fkfic-l about the forthcoming war
need the topic war:. Please be sure the put the colon after the word. The colon
tells the listserv that the preceding word is a topic.
