Five

Five years old.

It’s September 1st again and that can only mean one thing. iWalt.com is another year older. Happy birthday you big dopey bastard. =-)

[Update: We’ve had scattered reports of people mistakenly thinking that September 1st is my birthday. What we’re actually taking note of today is the anniversary or birthday of this website. Which is a perverse thing to do, I will grant you, but there you have it. Specifically, we’re noting that it’s been five years since I registered the iWalt.com domain name, not since I started blogging. The precursor to iWalt.com, the aptly named “walt.homepage” had evolved an extremely blog-like quality somewhere between its humble beginnings in 1995 and it’s triumphant end in 1999. And, for the record, I actually turned five in 1981.]

Thanks!

Happy (belated) blog day!

Ironic that you should mention walt.homepage because last week while meandering through the files on my beige G3—that you helped-me-buy/conned-me-into-buying in 1998—I discovered my original home paged designed under your tutelage with a link to walt.homepage! Which of course I had completely forgotten about…
