What is the history of Runboard?


When did it start?

Where did it come from?


Is there a thread somewhere that talks about this? I just spend a couple hours hunting on the Internet. LOL

Re: What is the history of Runboard?


Hey Susa,

I would tell you everything I know about Runboard's history, but I don't want to risk giving away any secrets. emoticon I can tell you it was created by Thor, who created his own account on January 18, 2003 at 10:31pm gmt. Since he is user #2, people have searched high and low for user #1, but to this day, no one has ever found it.

Runboard was originally named Akheva, which is where the board ID of the Support board comes from. Interestingly, there was an old Support board with the ID of brunboard, while the service was still called Akheva. Yes, Thor works in mysterious ways.

You can find out a lot about Runboard's history by browsing the ]Announcements forum at Support. I still get a kick out of reading some of those old threads at times.

You can also see how some of the pages looked by using Wayback Machine ([sign in to see URL]). Their site is pretty slow, but it can be fascinating to see what things actually looked like way back when. emoticon

It will make more sense if you read the Announcements first, starting with the oldest, before viewing Wayback Machine's archive.

Yep, there's a lot more information in the Announcements forum than anyone could ever give in one post, and seeing the old pages on [sign in to see URL] is pretty cool, too, in my opinion. emoticon

I can imagine it and it would not be pretty with all the Europeans driving on the wrong side of the road to avoid hitting me! emoticon

Paris isn't the only place where I've seen motorcycles driving in between lines of traffic, although it is the only place where I've actually been on that motorcycle, and it didn't even scare me. emoticon

If everyone drove motorcycles, it wouldn't be so annoying. emoticon

Re: What is the history of Runboard?


It looks like Runboard changed from Akheva to Runboard sometime between December 4 and December 18, 2003 according to the archives.

Re: What is the history of Runboard?


You're welcome, Susa. emoticon

It looks like Akheva and Runboard overlapped a little, possibly to keep old links working for a while after changing it to Runboard. Although Thor and I have talked about the old name before, this overlap is something I never thought to ask him about, and my guess is strictly based on old posts and Wayback Machine archives.
