Coming of age

This site turns 14 years old this week. That’s pretty old for something in the web world. This was a few months before the browser Netscape was released. Even though I had had an email address for several years, 1994 was the year I got my first mobile phone and obviously, my first web site. The kids of today won’t believe there was a time without mobiles and web.

I once started out with two old friends called Emacs and Mosaic. My hands typed <html> for the first time and my world changed forever. All these years later, I still love the web and use it daily in a multitude of ways.

To all readers and visitors, newcomers and old-timers, stars and ghosts of Christmas past, thanks for tuning in. Have a nice day.

    Indeed! The first version had only black text on white background. A few months later, the top was upgraded with a logo made in 3D Studio on a 486, which survived for two years. I also remember starting the Impulse homepage later that year.

    You beat me with little over a year ;)
    951021 was the birthdate of my homepage.
    I had been lurking the net for little over a year, I still remember my friend at LTH telling me about this new program that had been installed on the SUN-machines ;)

    Aaah, the good old days of SUN machines. The Emacs insult “Eight-Megabytes-And-Constantly-Swapping” doesn’t really have the same punch these days.
