John created a clone in PHP and MySQL, he tried to sell it to Infopop. They said no, john and james decided to market it after some badgering from Martin.

    vB 1.1 was the first public release back in 2000~

    All the current development staff were people who wrote modifications at the time, order in which they were employed was Mike, Freddie, Kier, Me. At least I think that is the order

    Mike, Freddie, Kier worked on vB2
    Mike, Freddie, Kier and myself on vB3

    It would be a good reading.

    He was thought to have been in a sweat shop for programmers at the time being paid only 1 cocoa bean and a turnip a week.

    No. It was originally programmed by John.
