Out of the Blue

Yesterday marked the tenth anniversary of this site's move to its own domain. Of course I meant to mention this yesterday, but the date has always stuck in my head as 10/10, rather than the proper 10/9 (this isn't the first time I've done this). Anyway, ten years is a long time, even for a (senile?) codger like me, but it's an eternity on the internet, and I'm certainly proud to have survived, much less what we've managed to accomplish along the way. I would love to thank all the folks who have been so instrumental in the site's success over the years, but the aforementioned senility is a severe impediment to covering so many bases correctly, so maybe I'll start to undertake compiling a thank-you list as a research project. In the meantime, a blanket heartfelt thanks to all of you who have visited and contributed over the nearly 12 years since the site launched and the ten years of being a "dot com."

R.I.P.: Noorda, network computing pioneer, dies at 82.

Ever since I started playing Quake TF I had this as my homepage. Seems like that was in '97 sometime. It's remained my 'morning coffee' website for years and with the 'Into the Black' became my afternoon respite once I got home from work.

So by the time I finish reading most of the news postings, etc. I get in an hour of work and then go home.

I remember during the Internet crash days and wasn't sure if the site would survive. Glad to see how hard work and perserverance paid off.

Congrats on succeeding where so many have failed!
