This guy has been waiting over 10 years for a responce, Does anyone know if he got his unicycle?

how do you know that? :thinking:

Because the orginal post date is 1995-05-13, and today is 2005-05-14

It’s possible someone did e-mail him…but there was no reply to the thread. i.e. No response!

he had been waiting for 10 years, 20 minutes lol
that’s a long time
it’d be funny to email him and see if he got it

when was www.unicyclist.com formed? :thinking:

I doubt he got much emails…

I have no idea,but look at this thread

Sometime in early 2001.

The unicycling “forum” was originally an emailing list. Then it became a Usenet newsgroup (rec.sport.unicycling) with an email gateway so people could get the newsgroup via email. Then Gilby added the unicyclist.com web forum in 2001.

I wasn’t active in unicycling back when the “forum” was only an email list. I discovered the newsgroup back in '96 or '97. I continued to use Usenet and the email list for several months after Gilby launched unicyclist.com. I was a slow adopter because Usenet and the mailing list worked plenty well enough for me back then.

So there is a lot of history to the group that happened before Gilby made the web forum. The web forum did make the group more accessible to more people. The number of people posting and the number of posts increased a lot after Gilby launched unicyclist.com.

If this “forum” was still just a Usenet newsgroup the number of people posting here would be a lot smaller. The web forum opened the group up to a lot more people who have never even heard of Usenet.

Unicyclist.com was launched in March 2001. Only ten months later, in
Janaury 2002, 50 percent of the posts were originating from the forum.
So, if John switched to using the forum after “several months” he may
well have been a fast adopter.

I tried to more precisely assess those “several months” by using
Google Groups Advanced Search, but they have a new Beta version out
which behaves badly for me.
