Adam ate the fruit only after Eve had been egging him on to do it. ! That was pretty early on in things...

very tricky.
Assuming one accepts evolution there was an egg before there was a chicken. But the egg wasn't a chicken-egg (it was the egg of some kind of pre-chicken). The first chicken-egg however was laid by the first chicken. So the egg was there before the chicken but the chicken was there before the chicken-egg.
For those who don't accept evolution it more simple : the chicken is first mentioned in Noë's arch, the chicken-egg at the Last Supper. So the chicken was there first.

Now back to LF ...

I vote for the chicken. Where else would the egg come from? :-D

The helpful addition of the number to denote the dot length
came much later when slower speeds became popular for
working DX, but I don't know its origin.

I recall a discussion about how to best specify the QRSS speed on the
Lowfer mail list.  This must have been over 5 years ago.  I
looked for
the message archives on but the messages prior to 2000 are not
there.  John, W1TAG, was the first I remember to use the QRSS(#)
About the same time Alberto released a new version of Argo or Spectran
which included the QRSS speed.  Also I don't know which came first,
chicken or the egg.
