Ken Longfield and I may be the only original members left. Several have passed away, others disappeared into the bit-cloud. I joined the week Bruce started the site, and Ken a week later, if I remember right. There were 2 or 3 other 'real' members and a couple of 'test members' that Bruce had created.

I only know those things because I can look them up here at ED. If I had to rely on my memory, well, that would be a problem.
