That's easy. Nobody.

However, the person with an id of 00000001 is currently "James Yingst". i believe this occasionally changes, as the moderators do tend to, on occasion, play jokes on others and 'hack' the system.

That may depend on how you decide 'first post'. If you read Paul W. and Kathy S.'s bios (here), you'll see that originally there were two distinct web sites that were merged into what is now the JavaRanch. So, do you want the first post in the forums Paul had created, or the first post once the sites came together?

Both. I'm wishing and needing both.

Arvind,

You do know, at this point, it will be much more fun for us to keep you in "suspense" and wishing and needing, rather than actually answer your post now.

It was probably "Ok, now that we burned that forum to the ground, what are we going to do next?"

The first post hasn't happened yet, as the functionality for a first post was not included with the saloon's software. We hope to upgrade this in a future version.

We will let you know when the first post happens.

The first post was a link to Louis Armstrong playing Last Post backwards on his trumpet, but it had to be deleted due to people who claimed they could hear voices saying "Paul is dead".

In the first few milliseconds after the Big Bang, the Laws of Physics hadn't coalesced yet and so things (meaning all the stuff of The Bang) could travel much faster than the speed of light. This explains much of why our Universe is expanding, and why there is no center to the Universe since space-time itself is also expanding, and why there can be no definitive first post. Or something like that.

Sigh. Didn't we teach you anything? It was "Hello 'ranch". The rest of the world is kinda irrelevant.

So it really must be a chicken or the egg thing.

You can't have the ranch without a first post and you can't have the first post without the ranch .

OK, I did some more research and came down to a few more possibilities.

"You had me at JavaRanch"

"Your what hurts?"

or

"In a galaxy far, far away"
