    I can't believe I have been playing chess here for that long, but it's true.
    I was the 16th person to open an account here, and my first game was the 18th game played here.

    I feel old. 🙁

    In fact you're even earlier than that. A significant number of members 1 to 15 were test dummies. 😏

    It’s RHP’s 18th birthday according to Facebook.

    Although that could be the Russians I suppose....

    @mwmiller does appear to be the first non "friends or test account" sign up. There is just one other that signed up earlier that I can't remember the origin of for certain.

    why my brain links unconnected events i'll never know,
    but it does...

    twenty years ago i bought several boxsets of cd's,
    the doors,
    the who,
    jimi hendrix
    smokey robinson
    the beach boys
    janis joplin
    and some others...
    i never removed the shrinkwrap, intending to hang on these for a nebulous future which i cannot see...
    who knows, they may be valuable someday...
    HA!!!
    or not...

    do not remove the wrapping on yer "first ever" status,
    who knows???
    it may be valuable someday...

    Congrats! That's very cool. Somebody's got to be the old pro around here. 🙂

    It is interesting that you & I have not played! You must be invisible! 🙂

    It’s astonishing to think that Facebook is only 15 years old. How the internet has changed our lives, for better and at times, for worse.

    Damn, you should take a break every once and a while.

    Do you even sleep?

    I know it is very addictive. I've started controlling my time I spend on the Internet. I don't bother with Facebook though.
