August, yes, the first Module List where franz is mentioned came out
the 25th of August 1995, but on which you base the 20th?

I would love to find a definite record of a PAUSE announcement,
but off-hand I cannot, either from c.l.p.a or from (old) packrats
archives...  Maybe there was no definite "opening day"?  The
discussions on packrats about franz/PAUSE do happen near the
20th, e.g. PAUSE is mentioned by Andreas for the first time
the 16th.
