PaceAdvantage.com turns 18-years-old this month!

Holy freakin' cow (or should I say BULL)!?!?!?

18 years?!?!?!

This website is old enough to vote now.

I can't believe I've been running this place since July 27, 1999.

But here is the proof...the furthest back I go on the Wayback Machine (their first snapshot is in October 1999...but you can see the 7/27/99 date at the bottom of the page):

Damn....

18 years old??? That's more mature than a portion of the people that post here!!

To be serious, congrats Mike. Thank you for the site, and all that you (and the mods) do. This site has helped me learn a lot, laugh a lot, and I've rolled my eyes so hard at times that I've almost Yahtzee'd..... I have only had the opportunity to meet one person from here in real life, but feel like I know so many here.

Hope the next 18 are great, and thanks again!

Love the poll question on that link....should PVal be allowed to ride again? How many times have you used that one since?

You did a great job here. Did you ever anticipate the popularity of this site when you first started it?

You're confusing numbers on the alexa website...I'm nowhere near that popular.

And for the record, alexa stats are estimates, and some of them are WAY OFF, unless they are directly hooked into your site, which they are not here...
