ten years blogging

astonishing, even to me, is that this month marks the tenth year this site has been online. amazing.

i was “blogging” even before i knew it was a verb. here’s proof:

archive from February 1999.

back in those days, i had ambitions that i would open up the “rants” to other writers and guests. the whole engine was custom built on a PowerMac 7600 running WebStar and FileMaker Pro, with Lasso as the language holding it all together. that worked for a surprisingly long time – with the help of several new hard drives, a pile of RAM chips and a G3 upgrade card.

then came the linux server, and WordPress.

and still, here i am, not capitalizing my shit.
