|I was doing some spelunking in response to akkartik's question about the origin of our collective ssyntax knowledge, and just started typing in /item?id=1, 2,...|
The first item I found that had any content was #5.
That item itself is dead, but the earliest comment was 3649 days ago. Also, pg's user account was created 3650 days ago, so today is probably the 10th anniversary of the Arc forum. (+/- leap days...) Wow!
Congratulations everybody! Here's to the next ten years.
It's also interesting to note, when I was looking for the announcement page, that people were already discussing the decline of the community less than a year after it started: http://www.arclanguage.org/item?id=8462 Looking at the list of forks that already existed at that time, it's amazing how fast the community developed and fostered forks and new development.
Here's to another ten years of language hacking!
