    Yeah, I joined about June 2000 and ended up re-registering in Jan 2001 for some strange reason, think I lost my login details, but I have been here that long. I think the first member was Retro but haven't seen him for a while. Things have changed a hell of a lot over the last 8 years, all for the better if you ask me. I remember when there was very few of us here, we even had a Sunday night chat club!

    Happy Birthday! :thumbsup:

    There doesn't seem to be many regular members from before 2004, maybe they are just lurkers and not regular posters though...

    God only knows what my post count would be if I joined in 2000...

    I'd be up there with Hornydragon that's for sure....:eek:

    I've also been here longer than indicated as I was a member when it was an old fashioned bulletin board.

    It's changed quite a lot in that time :)

    I have yet to come accross a better managed well informed forum.
    Forum members actually help others very rare if you ask me.

    I have enjoyed every minute of my 4/5 years and visit this board more than the rest infact i have stopped visiting some now.

    Thank you all and i hjope the good work continues.

    Happy Birthday Av forums :thumbsup:

    Strange phrase "Many happy Returns"

    and the last thing we want with AV kit !


    Meaning

    Have many more happy days, especially birthdays.

    Origin

    Since the 18th century this has been used as a salutation to offer the hope that a happy day being marked would recur many more times. It is now primarily used on birthdays; prior to the mid 19th century it was used more generally, at any celebratory or festive event.

    The first record O can find of it in print is in a letter written by Lady Newdigate in 1789 (published in Newdigate-Newdegate Cheverels in 1898):

    "Many happy returns of ye day to us my Dr Love."

    Because AVForums wouldn't be anything without the people who visit, post, moderate and otherwise contribute, really we should be wishing each other Happy Birthday.
    So thank *you* and many happy returns. Literally :)
