    Since the beginning of Certforums?

    The only thread I can find that gives us some idea When CF was started is here:-

    Thread No.58

    :hhhmmm 23rd June 2003. So Certforums has been around for over 5 years! That's quite a mile stone! :rocks:clap:cheers
    Q) How did Certforums start?

    Q) who came up with the name?

    My join date is 29-Jun-2003 and I joined about a week after the forum was created. I went into the admin control panel thinking there'd be something in there that would say when the forum first went online, but I couldn't find it.

    SimonV is the creator and site owner. Most (but not all) of the original "gang" have since moved on, but a few of us have lingered. Si and Gav have more of the history than I have. One of these days, they'll be along to fill in the gaps.

    EDIT: I did find thread #4, which is the oldest one I could locate:

    http://www.certforums.co.uk/forums/thread4.html

    BTW, since Si's join date is June 23rd and since he created the place, I suspect that June 23, 2003 is when CF came to life. :D

    I was a regular at another certification forum (which I no longer visit) and one of the members had just joined this one. He suggested I hop over here for a look and I was hooked. He's since gone the way of the dodo bird, but I managed to hang around. You haven't lived until you've experienced Rosy's whip in the chat room. LOL

    :hhhmmm just been reading some of her threads..(I wonder if she's related to Mitzs):twisted:

    Someone said that the forum was setup by students of NITLC in the hope of pointing people (in a similiar postion) through the mindfield of Certs??

    Is that true, were the creators student of NITLC:blink

    I think that's how it started out, but almost immediately grew beyond the original mandate.

    As far as Rosy and Mitzs are concerned, I don't know that they ever "met" (online) but I'm sure they'd have gotten along famously. :wink:
