Oldest Node

I'm still fairly new to perlmonks.org. Today on a whim I tried to go to index.pl?node=1 and was told I didn't have permission to see the page. I know newbies don't rate too much permision, so I'll just ask: What's the oldest node at perlmonks?

    Perhaps try this on for size. It's the first one could find that existed with open permissions. It claims to be a reply to note edit page, but I don't have permissions. :-P

    Node 1 is the nodetype nodetype (yes, Everything is crazily circular at this level), and was officaly created Oct 04, 1999 at 18:34. Anyway, see The True Catacombs of Perlmonks for more on this fascinating topic. (Of course, now that I'm a pmdevil, it's a lot more spooky and unknowable, but it's still quite interesting.)

    Heh. I have a list of the oldest nodes in several threads on my homenode (scroll down to "Archaeology").

    ++ Just for starting an interesting thread.

    He! The things you find surfing the node numbers!

    Just for fun I picked some numbers and looked them up. True, it's not much more than clicking the 'random node' link, but here's what I found anyway:

    123456-Re: Anagram Matching
    12345 -Bug #85
    1234 -Not Found
    123 -Permission denied
    12 -Permission denied
    1 -Permission denied
    76 -Permission denied
    1775 -Permission denied
    1776 -Prototypes in Perl
    486 -The Go Poem
    52700 -Not Found
    12576 -Not Found

    For those who don't know, November 10, 1775 is when the first Continental Congress established the United States Marine Corps. 76 was my high school football number. 52700 is my wedding aniversary. 12576 is my birthday. (Send presents, or trade them for ++ votes c",)

    Some of the higher end nodes had content. Middle nodes seem more likely to not be found. Anyone in the 'know' know why? And why are so many nodes denied to me? What deep dark secrets lie in the depths of the monestary? Someday maybe I'll be able to let you know.

    -p
      Hehe,
      I suspect the "denied" nodes are usually those that have some sort of administrative function attached to them ...
      ...or maybe we're in the midst of an Illuminati training camp?
      Oh, well, it's still fun.

      So Long
