    As Rob requested in the other thread, here are links to some important and unique threads on BYC that you might not ever run across on your own:

    BYC History

    Putting Faces With Names (Submit Your Mug Here)

    Board Demographics (members' biographical info)

    Please Use Search Feature

There's nothing at all wrong with people asking the question again to see if something new comes up, but it can be a good idea to use the 'Search' utility first, or check out the following standout threads :
