I can rule out a few from the social before. And some I think I can rule out by the things they've said but I'm still not really much the wiser! Looked fun anyway. :)

At the social event I was asked when the first forum post was made. Before we used our current forum software from Invision Power Board we used Ikonboard (designed by the same programmer), so the answer isn't as simple as "topic number 1". However, I've tracked it down and it was posted by me at 2:06 pm on Nov. 21, 2000 and can be found in the archives here...

It took a while for the first response to come in. The first post by someone other than myself was by pbradburn at 5:24 pm on Jan. 18, 2001

ANyone know how old Biggin Hill (the road not the airfield!) is?

Specifically I live in one of the old terraced houses - wonder how old they are

Ananova News Article: Image of Christ spotted on soccer pitch
Crystal Palace have a replica Turin Shroud image of Christ on their football pitch. An aerial photograph of the club's Selhurst Park home reveals an amazing Jesus-like imprint created on the turf by worn patches of grass, reports the Daily Star. "It seems there'll be a saviour for Palace this Christmas after all. It's obviously divine intervention," said lifelong fan John Humphries, who spotted the image.
Mr Humphries, 28, of Sydenham, Kent, was surfing the web looking at http://www.streetmap.co.uk and noted the Jesus resemblance. "I was looking at a picture of the ground on the internet and spotted Christ's face, long hair and beard - just like the Turin Shroud," he said. The famous cloth in the Italian city is said to have wrapped Jesus's body after the Crucifixion.

You can still see the image on Streetmap's web site...
