Oldest Thread?

I'm regularly surprised by Frankenthreads, and bemused by posters who respond to these threads' OPs as if they had just posted.

What's the absolute oldest thread on Chowhound? I'm feeling the need to respond to it, whatever it is...

Aloha,
Kaleo

  1. The oldest one I can find is this one from 1997.

    I just went to the last(first?) page on all boards and found the 1st post.
    Someone may find an earlier one though.

      If you sort by "Date Started" rather than "Last Reply" you find what I think is the oldest thread still available, from July 1997.

        Thanks l_d_c:

        Frankenthread has risen, on the SW Board. Can anyone find anything older?

    2. It's unfortunate that the "Other Threads You Might Like" recommendations don't sort by date. That keeps the zombie threads alive and there have been a lot of them lately.
