Hi All,

Mostly a lurker here, but a member since the Hector Mandel days.  Hector was and still is at the University of Illinois.  He was the RSO when he started Radsafe as a BBS in very early 90's.  

Back to lurker mode,

For RADSAFE that is!

Does anyone have an official timeline for RADSAFE or history?

I've been with it from the very start when Hector had it as a BBS - I don't have any archives from back then but do have a complete archive back to '02 and a few old '95 and '96 entries from Franz - why just those from then - I don't know.  I was trying to recall JUST exactly when the BBS started but just can't recall and can't find any files on my computer that shed any light on that subject. I guess QMODEM didn't capture BBS threads very well!!  Or the idea of archiving just hadn't caught on yet.

I recall a few comments Wade Patterson had about RADSAFE VERY early on in a conversation with just myself, him and Hector - and maybe one other person.  He didn't quite understand it and had trouble "connecting" with the idea of a free forum - expressed in somewhat pejorative terms - he wanted it to become an income resource for HPS/CHP.

Just reflecting.
