I've been trying to locate the very first post I ever made on these forums. But it's been such a long time, I've forgotten what it was about...

I was feeding the search-engine my name to get all threads in which I have ever posted, but that didn't work. It refuses to accept a search without a word as a search criterion.

Tell it to search for the word 'e'. It will return every post you've made with that letter in it, as it's not picky about whether a word is a word or a part of a word.

Okay, there are 18 pages of results looking for 'e' in posts by you in the archives. Have fun looking for your first.

Ah... Thanks. (I got my work cut out now)

It's finding those "dirty" tricks that exploit the limitations of the forum that is most tricky.
If the programming language had been too intelligent, one couldn't have posted something like:

[url="http://www.google.com"]click on this link[/url]

...without the forum or Internet Explorer creating a clickable link in there.
