And Then We Were 10

My business domain, was registered 10 years ago today: 17 March 1995.

It predates PHP. It predates MySQL. It predates Flash. It predates Shockwave. In its lifetime, it’s run on a variety of servers, but mostly Macintosh machines in my office that were connected to the Internet using standard phone, Frame Relay, and SDSL lines. We ran databases with FileMaker, Butler SQL, and Tango; ran a webcam back when they were still black and white; and jumped through all sorts of hoops to do things that anybody with a hosted domain can do today without even thinking about it.

The Web. It’s been a long, expensive decade.
