Look what I dug up....
FIRST VERSION OF TOL. (http://www.theologyonline.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=1264)
(above link is to a larger version of the screen shot).

A screen shot of the very first version of TheologyOnLine. Notice we didn't yet own the domain name "theologyonline.com".

This screen shot was taken Oct 27th 1997 - I am not sure how long TOL was up and running before this shot was taken.

:shocked: :shocked: I remember that. :shocked: :shocked:

"The idea here is for you to be the student and the professor."

That's soooooo cool! What I wouldn't give to see some of the posts from back then. :D

Remember when "Can God Change?" was huge?

I started posting at TOL in the late '90s, but I don't think it was as early as '97.

I heard about it while chatting with some guy from Knight's church.

Same here! He kept telling me how great the site was and how I really need to check it out.

Deja Vu! Maybe it was the same person!

How times have changed. It's weird to be a newish person and see what TOL used to look like.

Couple of years and there'll be a grand 10-year anniversary celebration. :Party:

How come every time I try to view one of those pictures, it tells me that I do not have permission.

They simply won't load for me -- I get everything but the picture. And after attempting to view them, no other pictures will load in any browser window. I have to close them all and start again, or I can't even finish loading a normal page.

Or call each other names!

And posts had to be no more than 3 short paragraphs. Did you hear that, PureX?

Maybe that was before Knight realized just how many idiots there are in the world. The internet helps you to realize that real fast. :eek:
