Following a meme post from james_nicoll :

Find your oldest Usenet post, post a link. (And link back to here and tag four others, if you wish)

The earliest post from me was May 25 1991, although I found a reference to me from July 1990 here (I had e-mailed something to the poster, as I didn't have Usenet posting privileges in those days as a mere undergrad).
I did just find a cool coincidence : a reply by one "Charles Stross" to a post of mine from rec.arts.sf-lovers here.
I wonder if it was ... you know ... that Charles Stross. He did sign as "Charlie" ...

Ooh that was fun! I can't believe I wasn't on there until 1995, we thought probably 93 when we moved into this house.

My first few posts are here:

mostly to due with food, what a surprise

but the first post to reference me is here:

There are a couple of references to me in 1990, including a complete post, because I, like you, didn't have posting privileges. My first usenet post is in Jan 1991. (Not linking as I make some pretence of anonymity here, but anyone who knows me can look them up.)
