Hello Guys
I dont know how to address this message to the forum administrator- so forgive me for
posting here.

I would like to start at the beginning and glance through all messages from the beginning
of this board.
what is the first message in the forum and at what date.
Then having read it i will mark it as read and can i then configure the board to only display
unread messages in future
regards fred

Good grief....do you know how many posts there are ..... 193,000+ :o

Happy reading Fred,

BTW, let us know when your done as there will be a memory test given to you about them. :D
Lets see.... 19300 x 2 min/post x 1/60=6433 hours x 1/8hrs / day=804 days x 1/365 days per year=2.2 years to read them all

So the test will be given approx March of 2017.  :P

Fred, try this, write down on a bit of paper I read all the posts on the Mach forum yesterday
Place it on your breakfast table.
Tomorrow you will be chuffed to bits and will save yourself a lot of time ;)

Well let your heart not be troubled  :D............when you can't figure out that  morning has passed
and it's night time...that's when you need to be concerned. ;D

Thats not so good Fred, surely your memory is better than you though ;D

Either that or it did work and then you came here and read my post and that reminded you ;D

Happy reading ;)
