Finding my true birthday.
As some of you know, I've been part of this server for a very very very long time, and im nearing close to four years or something like that, But the problem is, I have no idea the day I joined, Sadly I cannot now find it as I used to play on my dad's computer, and account (Cilgalad) The only thing I can remember on my first day is mining an obsidian tower for a player named DK, (Wasn't the admin DK, but was a different player) The only evidence I have of my existence on the server was a video dated in 2016, so far, but I joined before vote ranks even existed, if y'all could search your chat logs to help me, that would just be awesome! --For Clarification, I remember joining in 2014 - 2015 but only true evidence I have is of 2016

I wrote a program to decompress every log I have (december 26th 2015 onwards) and check every line for the substring "Cilgalad" and ended up with 244 results. The earliest I've got is the 1st February 2016 with you being a Guest:

Hope that helps <3

If anyone else wants to do this, here's the code:

import gzip
from os import listdir

def search(substring):
    for file in listdir():
        if file.endswith('.log'):
            with open(file, 'r') as contents:
                for line in contents:
                    if substring in line.lower():
                        print(file, line)
        elif file.endswith('.log.gz'):
            with gzip.open(file, 'r') as contents:
                for line in contents:
                    if substring in str(line).lower():
                        print(file, str(line))

Well, I got my computer for christmas that year, so that would have been the first time I logged into minecraft on this computer! If you were only a guest at the time then you can't have joined too long before that. I don't have any older logs because I had my laptop hard drive replaced at some point and lost them.

I got my old computer skills unrusted, spent a few hours on my old computer and brought my old computer back to life and I've found a file providing evidence from 2015 - (And I used your python code to help me Pengu!)

[2015-09-25] [18:04:09] [Client thread/INFO]: [CHAT] [Player] Cilgalad >> i am SO sry for not bieng active

This was my FIRST message from my old computer, on hometown, and I now continue my search into the past~

But for now, September 25th, 2015 is my Hometown Birthday.

I've managed to extract my hard drive from my laptop and recover files from it. Unfortunately, it had no logs dating before december 2015 so this suggests that I had the drive wiped at some point in 2016

In other news, I am on track to fixing my laptop and being able to play on the server properly over easter :D

Oh gosh, that's great pengu, I can't wait to see you on in a few weeks!
