Sept. 98 for 2000ish uid sounds about right. I (very vaguely) recall that I started reading slashdot in the fall of '98 about the time I first got interested in linux. I don't recall when registration started, but Alot of people joined in late '98 and uid's grew pretty rapidly.

Science Daily: Astronomers Get First Look At Uranus's Rings As They Swing Edge-on To Earth->

eldavojohn writes "Engineers at the University of California, San Diego have built a 220 million pixel display across 55 high-resolution tiled screens. Linked via optical fiber to Calit2's building at UC Irvine, the display can deliver real-time rendered graphics simultaneously across 420 million pixels to audiences in Irvine and San Diego."

Always try to do things in chronological order; it's less confusing that way.
