999 posts

According to blogger, this is post number 999 of this blog. Neat. That represents five years and one month of blogging activity here. The very first post here was not even, "Tap tap tap is this thing on?" which I'm very proud of. It was an outage report.

This blog was started as a way to test out the Myweb service. I was tasked with creating the 'web pages from home directory' project, and myweb was the result of that. Faculty have proven very fond of the service, as I see evidence of web design classes being taught every quarter. I also see signs of certain faculty publishing syllabus that way, rather than through Blackboard. It's also a pretty good way to send really large files to people.

Since then, I've done a lot. Four BrainShares, several major migration projects, a lot of Novell stuff, more opinion stuff, blogger migrations, the introduction of actual tags in blogger, the move from Apache 1.3 to Apache 2.0 for this service, and lots of other stuff as well. I don't post as often as I did back then, so I expect it'll take longer to get to 2000. Who knows where it'll be by then.

I'm keeping it up, of course!

Hey, good for you! I don't think most blogs make it five years. What am I saying?! Blogging has barely existed for five years!My own is almost nine years old now and I have a little over 1500 posts. Amazing that we've kept them going so long, isn't it?
