Ah, the good old days :) I have no wish to go back to 1999 either, as that 
would mean I still had three more years of uni to go!

I can't remember when I joined the list - I think I lurked a lot in 99 (I 
was a shy young thing back then) but only started posting in 2000 (?). I am 
too slack to volunteer to run a list wide survey but will happily 
participate :)
