And success! I've found a page from the old "threaded" board! Cal's original "Welcome to the Discussion Board" post is dated 11/11/97, so that should answer that question.  :D

I get all warm and fuzzy seeing the "old" board. Or, the new old board, or whatever we're calling it.

  Good find KC  O0  It must have been around early December of '97 when I first started on the board.  You, GMAT, Holden, and Steve were already there.

Wow, that's really cool. We'll have to remember to have a "party" on 11/11/07. Thanks, KC!  O0

  And the prestigous "first poster not named Cal" award goes to...drum roll...Richard Morofsky!  By the way, who the hell is Richard Morofsky?  I don't recognize any of those guys posting. 

  Hmm...Maybe it was early 1998 when the first mainstays started on the board.  I'd have to check my old college records to see when I had CPSC lab to know for sure - which is a tad bit too much effort  8)

There's another thread from early '98 too. That's all I could find. I can't find any of Conan's posts and contrary to what he said earlier, I don't think I found the Board till the summer or fall of '98, but Holden and GMAT were already there. The earliest posts I seem to have saved are from late '98, on both the Eastwood and Leone boards (a lot of us posted on both of them, back then).

Here's a post by Cal from February '98, telling about how he met Clint. I don't think he'll mind if I quote it here!

In Reply to: Hey Cal, can you tell us............. posted by Aimee in Denver on February 17, 1998 at 23:11:44:

: .......your story about that special day in 1995 when you finally got to meet the infamous Clint Eastwood? I've always dreamed about getting to meet him myself, but I would love to hear how another truly devoted fan got that pleasure. I think others here would too, if you've got the time, or please feel free to e-mail me. Thanks !!
: Aimee

Aimee -

Thank you for your post. The condensed version goes something like this. My wife and another couple were having dinner at The Mission Ranch in Carmel. We were joking about how it would be cool if Clint stopped by. Then my wife turned around towards the front outside patio and said "Oh my God, Clint Eastwood is coming in." My back was to the door so just looked at her and said "yeah right." Then our friends said the same thing so when I turned around..sure enough! Anyway - we had dinner and so did he. Afterward, we approached him as he was leacing and simply introduced ourselves. We talked briefly and then my wife snapped that photo that is on the photo gallery page. It was a brief encounter but one that inspired me to create this site. This happened the week before "The Bridges of Madison County" came out. Well - that's my 15 seconds. Hope it didn't bore ya ;-)

Here's the link to the other old page ... I note that a fellow calling himself "Clint Eastwood" posted a couple of times.  ;)

Other than Clint, the only person whose name I recognize is Michael Arndt, who I think was the original Webmaster of the Leone website and Web Board, before Cal took it over.

The times between posts on that first board are somewhat greater than nowadays!  Especially going on our form in this thread tonight. 8)

Wow, those links bring back some memories.

I believe I joined in 1998, though I have no idea what time of year it was. The Eastwood Board, the Leone Board and the Scorsese Board were all part of the same little network, and I posted on all of them. I honestly don't even remember which of those I found first (might have been Scorsese) or how I found it, but once I found one I started posting on all three. They were the first internet bulletin boards of any kind that I particpated in, and where I first came up with the handle Holden Pike.

Good times.

  My timeline must be wrong then; reckon it was '98 when I found the board.

Which Scorsese board, Holden (googling brings up a couple or more)?  Is it still going?  I might get into that if it was well-moderated.  (Can't wait for The Departed.)

Man, that Wayback Machine could get addictive fast ... I'm finding more stuff from the good old days (early '01). It seems to be hit or miss, once you've opened a link, whether the sub-links will work. But here's a thread featuring the notorious Gunny in full cry ...

http://web.archive.org/web/20010424100535/http://www.clinteastwood.org/ubb/Forum1/HTML/000847.html

Oops ... it doesn't work from here. I'll try to find a way to get it to ...

EDIT: I know what the problem is ... Cal had some code on the old Board to prevent people from opening the central frame, which contained the web board posts, independently of the bordering frames (which were decoration). I don't know why, but he did. So, to get to the "Guacamole" thread I tried to link to above, follow this route: go to
http://web.archive.org/web/20010302002351/http://www.clinteastwood.net/webboard.html

... click on the link to "General Discussion" and then on the link to "Guacamole."

I'm sure there's much else of interest in this incarnation of the Board!

It is great to see and hear these recollections.

I have been around for quite a while, but I can't remember when I first joined.

No, the Scorsese Board folded even before Cal moved Eastwood. Too bad, I liked it over there. There wasn't quite as much action there as on the Eastwood or Leone boards (Leone really had the most post-per-day when I started participating in all three boards), but the handful of us regulars talking about Marty really knew our stuff and had loads of fun. I lost touch with all those guys within months after the board folded. We never found another Scorsese board. Too bad. If I wasn't such a Luddite and didn't spend all my time on the boards I do frequent (HOURS a day) I might have done one myself. Never happened. Never will.

Alas.


After participating on lots of different boards over the years, I'm always impressed by how Cal has been able to not just maintain but keep his great site and board growing year after year. I also rarely get a chance to openly commend him for his efforts. Thanks a million, Cal. And thanks to KC and all the other moderators over the years, too. You all have done a great job, and this is definitely a site where you care see the care and passion of the people behind it.

It was 1999, but I couldn't tell you what month. Someone probably will pull up a post of yours from one of the old boards that has your "join date".
