    Qld vs NSW (ING Cup - Gabba)

    I went to the Gabba yesterday to witness a wonderful match between the Bulls and the Blues. That Brad Haddin can hit a ball... even from a Queensland fan's perspective this guy played the most entertaining innings of the match. And it was good to see a crowd of 13,000 (even though a lot of free tickets were given away).

    I think they should have a lot more of the ING Cup games on Friday nights. It seems to have a "Friday Night Football" sort of atmosphere. Also a lot of people go to the cricket then afterwards since theyre already in the city, go and hit the clubs and pubs.

    That's an excellent crowd for a domestic game!

    We only get like 300, 400 people along to our domestic games

    This is the oldest post I can find on CW . There is another one which is much much older (Jan 1970) - before even the idea to concieve most of you was concieved but that thread with THIS solitary post is closed.

    Wonder what happened in the 32 years that passed between these posts ?

    Is the date of that closed thread post correct since Rik is mentioned as having joined only in September 2002. How did he post in the past ? Was he even born in 1970?

    I am mystified

    PS : Wonder what happened to the poster with such a charming name as Sunburnt Spinner

    Good searching. But that guy joined in 2002, and made the post in 1969. How did an admin change that?

    Actually I have been trying, without luck, to find the first post I ever made on CW and in the process I looked up the oldest threads.

    No, the thread was moved IIRC.

    It's this thread.

    I located by doing a search for posts by SJS and changing "Sort Descending" to "Sort Ascending".

    I once found the oldest post on CW, can't remember where, but you'll forgive my lack of being-aessed-ness to find it again. I can, however, easily explain the Rik CC thread (there is another one from Sangrah in OT as well if you look back to the last page there). These threads are of course not really from 1970, they are dated there as a result of some form of technical fault. Andre tried moving threads from one forum to another but messed something up somewhere, so as a result posts which were actually made in 2002 are dated 1970.

    The internet barely existed in 1970, and certainly not as we know it today. CW only came into existence in 2001. I do often wonder when the first things that could reasonably be classed as "forums" (ie, open to any internet user to post their own text on-the-spot) were created though. The CW forums and CricInfo forums (which I used from their inception) appeared at the same time and they're the earliest I've ever found, but I've read of other earlier ones, so 2001 seems not to be the significant date.

    Yeah Cricketgames.com forums are older I think.

    Yeah I found CW through CricketGames not long after it started, it actually took me a while to sign up because there was not much happening and not many people here. Started off strictly as an ICC forum IIRC
