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
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.
