Is there anyone here (apart from Joe of course) who was posting threads etc some 16 years ago?

You betcha, Mick. Bill_D (Bill Day of Maryland) is first and foremost in my mind.
I was on vacation when Mudcat opened in October 1996, and didn't find Mudcat until January 1997. There were a few other people who posted in those first few months, who still post here.
Big Mick Lane was one, although his presence is diminished now. Same with Martin Ryan.
But if your perameter is 16 years ago in 2002, there are lots of people still here who were here then.

You've confused me now Joe.. I thought you were one of the founding fathers of this wonderful website. But I thank you for your help in getting me back into the community. Just wondering if the likes of Mick Brackn are still checking out the site.

Just wondering how many people still here remember "Prof's Pages"...

I know vanity on my part. But your comments are much appreciated.

It was a friend who was recording my son's (indie) band who suggested I try the site for folk song lyrics.

My first post was 5 January 1997, message #1116 in Mudcat history. I spent months looking for the Digital Tradition after it was dropped from its Xerox site. I've posted over 30,000 messages - I think there are many who have posted more.

It's interesting to look back at the first messages posted at Mudcat. For the first two weeks, Max was pretty-much alone in answering requests and questions, and then Dick Greenhaus took over. Bert and Susan Arnowitt were early contributors, and Susan of DT came on at Message #222. There's a "Peter," who might be Peter Timmerman; and an "Ed" who might be Ed Pellow. "Lindahl" comes in at Message 228, and "RS" was an early poster - haven't seen those names in years. Mary LaMarca first posted at Message 267, and continued posting until her death. Bob Schwarer was an early poster (#243), and he still posts occasionally. There were posts from somebody named "Bill," but I don't know what Bill that would be. Bill Day first posted 7 Nov 1996, post number 303 - he's been posting as Bill_D ever since. He's the first one outside the Max/Greenhaus/Susan/Bert consortium who's still posting regularly.

Here's the URL od the first post, which doesn't exist. The first post in existence is #4. Change that last "1" to a "4" and you can see it. Keep changing that last number to see other early posts. https://mudcat.org/Detail.CFM?messages__Message_ID=1

Mudcat has been a major part of my online existence for nearly two decades. I too first posted in 2001, although I'm taking a break at the moment having become disillusioned by the bear pit that below the line has become and which seems to have a meanness about it that I don't need in my life at the moment. It was ever thus in a way, but it seems I don't learn much now whereas I used to learn a lot from people I never would have met otherwise. Some of my most fundamental views were challenged and altered as a result of these discussions.

I learn lots from above the line, especially in the early days as a fledgling bouzouki player seeking advice and the kindness and generosity of folk got me off the ground. The Cat was a place you could ask beginner's questions without being treated like a dullard, and this continues to this day.

Not me Joe. I was aware of the DT since the Xerox days. I can't recall if I contributed any earlier, but my first post under my own name was in July '99. I posted under various monikers until the 'Healing for a mouse' thread caused the login policy to change.

I'm still around (obviously) and look in most days. I rarely post now, but occasionally as 'GUEST' or 'GUEST,Ed'

Learned lots, searched for answers lots, found lots of wonderful Mudcat people to connect with. Mudcat has been my internet constant for nearly 21 years.

Yes, I'm still here, though age and commitments have limited my **regular** participation.

My claim to fame is that I was in the room watching when Susan of DT and a non-member, Dennis Cook, were comparing notebooks of songs and thinking about merging their databases. Dick Greenhaus was there and soon worked up a way to transfer stuff to 5 1/4" floppys.. for a couple of years, the Digital Tradition was distributed that way.... then it was briefly hosted, as Joe Offer says, by Xerox... then Dick G found Max, and AWAY we went.

Has Bert Hansell posted recently? I see him on FB...

Gee, looking at these comments, I get the impression that some of us must be REALLY old! No wonder we're so crotchety...

I remember when Dick was still willing to distribute the Digital Tradition on single-sided floppy disks. How much data did those things hold?

I downloaded my first copy of the DT from the "files" area of Celebration Station, a dialup computer bulletin board (BBS) run by Noel Paul Stookey at Ellsworth, Maine. I think that was long before Dick moved to the Xerox site on the World Wide Web.

I'm just a baby - not yet into my teens. My first post was on 8th August 2008 - not quite 10 years ago - when I asked for info about the Robert Johnson who accompanied dulcimer player Roger Nicholson on their album, "Nonesuch for Dulcimer".

I got my information, and a very funny reply from a certain Greg Stephens (The Boat Band) - only to realise that it was the same Greg Stephens I'd played blues duets with back in the mid-1960s and lost touch with!

Such was the beauty of Mudcat then. I post far less these days, mainly because I have other things to do, but also because many of the people who posted then have gone from Mudcat - one way or another.
