Out of the Blue

Time, as they say, marches on, so I shouldn't be so surprised that today marks another year since the launch of this domain, as it was on this day in 1996 that this site moved to bluesnews.com. That's right, 16 years, which I think is probably like 100 in internet years. Thanks to all of you for your support all this time.

Wow, the woman who almost killed herself drinking a liquid nitrogen cocktail was only 2 when you started the site.


OK, you just made me laugh about the woman! BAD!

My first thought on reading that article is why it didn't burn her esophagus on the way down...

edit: Think I started reading sometime in 97...I remember Q2 test Quake 2 "demo" (according to the October 8th post) was released, and reading about it here (and it was a BIG FUCKING DEAL )
