PreHistoric ColdFusion - When Did You Start?

I have been researching the evolution of ColdFusion and I know there is a good deal of that on the Adobe site, but that starts at version 4.01.  In my case I wanted to go prehistoric.

My first usage of CF was version 1.54 in 1996, as I have posted before, .dbml days. Good grief I was a developer, what happened along the way?  I became unworthy I suppose.  So in my research I came across articles from Rob Bilson?  Could that be Rob Brooks Bilson? 

Here are those articles: -

Here is some interesting information from Rob's blog.

So then, when did you start with CF?

ha, yeah, Rob's a old hat at CF for sure. When I got started at version 4, posts from him and another venerable CFer Charlie Arehart (http://www.carehart.org/) really helped out. And even then House Of Fusions CF_Talk list was hot!

Hi Mike,

Yep that's me - did the switch to the hyphenated last name when I got married in 1998.

I go back to the 1.5 days too, back when the Cold Fusion (notice spacing) manual was a sparse 100 pages and spiral bound, and the entire server fit on two floppy disks!

I did some early writing on ColdFusion for an online magazine called the Intranet Developer's Journal (it's still around), and spent a lot of time in their forums before moving on to the Allaire forums.

Wow, thanks for bringing back some memories!
