Far from Calif
I just read in the Daily Compliance Briefing that today marks 20 years of Bankers Threads!! WOW! That is awesome (and aging for most of us)! I honestly cannot thank you enough for creating this forum 20 years ago - I'm sure I've been on here pretty close to the beginning, and it's my most valuable resource!

Happy Birthday Bankers Threads!

I was one of the people that posted on day one 20 years ago. Of course, four years before that, in 1996, there was the MoneyPage compliance forum that was the first-of-its-kind bank compliance focused HTML format discussion forum, and I was there on day one too. This was right after Al Gore "invented" the internet. I remember thinking then, "This internet thing is going to be big." Man, the time sure has gone fast.

You are here
Also about 20 years ago (no snark just facts) The Patriots have a new coach who drafts a 199 pick for the QB position.

That's right, Jim. You're user #10, signing up right after me and Andy (I know that's poor grammar, but it's the order in which we signed up). We are all getting a little long in the tooth 20 years later! (Actually, I know that you and Andy are way behind me on that measure.)

I remember presenting at the Iowa Bankers Assoc on this day 20 years ago. Richard Insley dialed up an internet connection and showed everyone BOL. I remember the Money Page - and was loyal fan and user. I remember asking Andy "why are people moving away from the Money Page to this new thing called BOL?"

It took a little convincing, but I'm #44 to sign up. smile

FINALLY ABOVE the gnat line
It took Andy (I think) telling me that the folks who ran the Money Page Forum WANTED to shut it down. So I moved over to BOL a bit behind you guys - #396. We used to wear our BOL badges at the ABA Compliance Conference and all get together for a meal at some point in the conference. Good times!

I agree. Those were good times. Hopefully, we can still have them in the future!

Took me a while to find you all since I didn't join until March of 2001 - but I am still member 115. I certainly owe more to BOL than anyone, it certainly has changed my life for the better.

Way, way south.
I'm almost a newbie compared to most here, but I appreciate all that BOL has provided the banking compliance world.

16 years hardly makes you a newbie. Your contributions have been valuable to the community.
