April, 1991.  Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston had top hits. The Soviet 
Union is  crumbling.
The Gulf War begins. And on the 11th the domain Team.Net is  registered.

Happy birthday to us, 24 years and still kicking. Formed  out of the Usenet 
rec.autos tree,
it started with just 2 lists, autox and  british-cars. It became large 
enough and busy enough
that the officials at  the U noticed that a large amount of network traffic 
was coming from  one
certain machine in my office. That is what prompted the move to a  private 
server, which has been
in my basement for many years. Well, we are  NOT running on the same server 
from back then, which I
recall was one of  the first 120 Megahertz systems in the valley outside of 
universities. With  the
CS departments work with Hewlett-Packard, I had a connection.

A  lot has changed over the years, folks have come and gone, some have been 
 hanging out here for
decades. We've lost a few good ones, but many of us  have found lasting 
friendships from list
communications. Back in the early  days there wasn't much besides Team.Net. 
I think the 1997
SCCA Solo II  nationals had something like 60% of the entrants being autox 
list  subscribers.
Those were the days.

But still here, still providing a  valuable service to those who use it.  
Thanks to all of us
for making  Team.Net what it is.

Happy  Birthday.
