    I think mine was about the SureFire Titan. I couldn't imagine why anyone would spend $500 on a flashlight. That no longer seems crazy to me.

    Yep, it was about 144 lights ago

    I had lurked on here for quite a while before joining and posting. My first post was a request for recommendations on a new work light. Next thing you know, I'm hooked.

    My first post (and many which followed) all vanished into the electronic void, sadly lost in the Big CPF Crash ...

    I honestly don't remember what my first one was. The first one that shows using the search is Dec 2003.

    I'd been a member for more than a year by that time.

    Yes. I'm sure I commented on my joy and surprise of finding a site for people with this strange affliction. It felt good to know I was not alone.

    I managed to find my last 1000 posts, is there a way to find older ones? I'm curious now...

    I believe this is my 1st post here on CPF:

    For the record, I didn't buy any of the lights I came here to ask.

    I was ignorant...

    Mine was starting a help thread for a Solarforce L2 that had a faulty drop-in.

    I had been reading the forum for awhile and got desperate (I figured it out myself anyway).

    Check your started threads. I found my list still intact.

    I even had to re-register, since I joined during that several month window where everything was totally lost.

    When I rejoined, a couple threads were credited to " z_archimedes " or something, but all of my other posts (including my first post) were gone ....

    I didn't remember it until I searched for my started threads, and then it came back to me. I'm not sure that was my first post, but it was within a few days of the day I joined, so it might have been my first post. Apparently, I was looking to add safety lighting to my vehicle.

    [EDIT] Nope... the first post was actually when I was asking questions about the Eternalight. I have since bought at least one of every model TomH has made, I do believe, and have given several as gifts. I still have two Ergo X-Rays, a Marine, and a Derringer floating around somewhere in my collection.

    Apparently my first post was asking about the Wolf Eyes M90X "Rattlesnake" with EO-13 bulb, a mind-warping 700 lumens from only three batteries (I have a single-cell 800 lumen light in my pocket as I type this..)

    I think it was lost in the crash, but I'm pretty sure that I was thanking Selfbuilt for a review of the 4sevens Quarks. I came here to shop for Christmas presents for my family and ended up with a pretty ridiculous collection of my own.

    Considering my age I'd guess it was a question on using two candles in the lantern to make it brighter.
