Your first BF post...

Any of you ever go back and glance at your list of posts/threads?

I saw my first thread, from just last June:
Replace encased bearings with loose?
I was such a puttz. Especially, since I have now replaced all of my caged bearings with loose ones.

Now it's your turn...
"Yea, I've done that. I saw one of my old posts and thought ____________________."

Mine was related to my job as a bike advocate....which is how I found this site. I have been foolish posting-wise since then though.

That's not true. You just need to improve your search skills.

My first few posts aren't that interesting.

i guess your right, if you do a search around the date you joined you can get it. Turns out that thread was my first post. Thats kinda weird that i would have started a thread before i even made a post..what was i thinking.

Even easier... you display results in chronological order showing the earliest first (instead of the default of showing the latest first) and you see the first 500 posts you made.

My "actual" first post wasn't very interesting. However, here's a search of my first posts (ascending order from first post).

I was such a doofushead. I also started a thread: "wish me luck tomorrow's my first day".

The famous "which bike question" with no responses

Bikes around 1000-1500 CAD

Followed later by the same question reworded, to get some responses.

Experienced Opinion

Man some of those names bring back a bit of online nastalgia

I remember finding BF after googling some weird part for my bike that I was considering and looking for reviews. Epinions was striking out so I googled it and the search result took me to BF. I read the reviews/opinions, decided against the part which for the life of me I can't remember now, then went to the BF main page and randomly clicked through forums reading posts. Then I decided without much thought or fanfare that my first post would be in Rude Drivers. My life hasn't been the same since. Curse you all!

My first post in the June of 2005. I think I might have been lurking for a while before that though.
