Ten years ago today, I registered festing.org. It wasn't my first domain name -- that distinction goes to kenandted.com -- but it is the oldest domain I still have registered. I couldn't really come up with anything significant to celebrate the anniversary, so this will have to do.

Ten years ago, I was a freshman in college. Ten years from now I'll have a couple of kids in elementary school. I'm not sure what the next ten years will hold, but I suspect they'll be at least as interesting as the last ten years.

Having rejected DOS, we're paranoid about anything that isn't
"user-friendly," that requires some adjustment on our part and a
commitment to meet the technology halfway. It's as if Henry Ford rigged
a bridle and set of leather reins to his Model T instead of a steering
wheel and clutch, and to this day we were still driving our cars the way
a 19th century groomsman would handle a horse and buggy.
