I always had a question in my mind; ever since I have started coding, Stack Overflow has turned out to be a good solution finder for me.

  • When was Stack Overflow first released?
  • Who was the first one to register to the site?

I have seen that the site was under maintenance a few days ago, so I thought it's time for me to end the surprise I have been keeping in my mind and shoot.
