It could happen
It *has* happened !According to his home node, mpersico joined PM on 20th May 2000, provided (at some stage) a brief bio, and then waited until today to make his first post.Seems unlikely to me ... especially given that I'm sure I've seen that username on previous occasions. (But I could be wrong, too.)UPDATE: Maybe it's just that I've seen his name on some other forum ...Cheers,Rob
