Where can I find the very first thread posted on PF? Is the author still around?

That's embarrassing. :))

We've come a very long way and I'm proud to have been allowed to have been a part of it.

If memory serves me well webarchive doesn't store individual threads, just a main page of any forum (well, it is more complicated than that, but I don't expect it to have more than just a bunch of main pages stored).

From what I was able to quickly check this is the oldest surviving thread: https://www.physicsforums.com/threads/the-source-of-all-the-mind.18/

IIRC, Greg was running out of space after only about a year and deleted the first year of PF to make room for more. However, he put what he'd deleted on a disc that he would send to you (for $20 or something).

That disk is where you would find the true first thread.

Didn't know there was a forum "How Stuff Works".
