AEF- 25 years?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I've been away for a while.

I was reminiscing about this place and the many heated... err, interesting discussions in which I've participated over the years. I'm happy to see that many of you are still here and that you appear to be doing well.

I remember joining back in the Pam days- in... '96? I'm not sure of the exact date this forum was started but it must be coming up on a 25 year anniversary. Anyway, hello, glad to see the place is still alive and vibrant.

I believe Jim Wood, (AC), started this forum around '97 or perhaps '98 . I found it just prior to CP/AC merger. I 'm not sure whether the present hosts took it over, or built a new one but it has seen a lot of action, learned discussions, controversial discussions, and fun discussions.. 

The main point in any discussion, be it forums or personal, is to remember that courtesy and respect is contagious....... even if you are cloaked with anonymity.

Thanks again to the good people that  let us toss bouquets and the odd, non-fatal, brick around.  5186.gif

Great spot. Diverse backgrounds for the participants. High level of industry specific knowledge. Reasonable censorship (unlike the other Canadian operated web board).

Kip, Jim took it over from Pam. It was operating at least as early as the fall of '96.

If I recall correctly, Jim was going to pull the plug (due to the AC / CP merger vitriol) and our current hosts took it over at that time.

Been (mostly) lurking since March of '97... I think I had a different handle then.  Regardless it's always nice to read the thoughts of other professionals here.  Thanks to the hosts for providing this site, and the contributors for keeping civil undertones.

Have been a contributor under a couple previous names since 1998. Much has changed in 20+ years but still a great collection of contributors (seriously!) and relevance. Would like to see others join our crowd. Numbers breed diversity. Many thanks to the current administrators for continuing this site!

This forum has been a regular stop for me for almost 20 years for the quality posts on many diverse subjects. Most important are the posts discussing accident/incident investigation and the mostly thoughtful and respectful contributions by all. These discussions do contribute, albeit indirectly, to the high level of safety the industry enjoys.
