Wow!! I forgot how I looked when I was young. Made feel even older! I am not around as often as I used to be, but I still check in from time to time.

Am I crazy, or did we have to "Re-sign" up for the forum once a long time ago? In other words, did you start up the website a second time and everyone got a new register date?

Harold,

We did have something else before this, but that was back in the late '90s through sometime in 2000 as I remember it.

You may be thinking of the Chat Area, which is separate from the Forum but did share the same login info at one time.

Bill,

I wasn't sure, I thought I have been here before 2002, but I was on Prodigy before here with guys like Greg and Joe T. so I might be forgetting dates/years in my old age. smile

Yup, that goes back to 1991-1992, almost 20 years ago.

Remember this

I wish I still had the conversation that started the Secret Society. It was basically a guy who was bonding to a water pipe with a hose clamp (or some other hack) and wondering why that wasn't kosher. After Joe T and a few others started citing code, he said we must be some kind of secret society talking in an obscure language to discourage homeowners from doing electrical work.
The name stuck.

Joe T actually pitched pretty much his whole IAEI road show to us over about 6 months and 6 of us got our IAEI certifications.

This is our own "Caper", 2d on the left with 3 other SS members "Wiz", Rich and Wally and Joe in the middle.
