First Web Site

There is no Friday Five posted today, so I went back and answered the August 15, 2003 questions. 1. How much time do you spend online each day? Oh lord! This is scary. This changes daily depending on how much web work I do at work, this could be 2 to 8 hrs. at work, then when I get home I could be doing web work for my business, or be online to chat, check email, etc. I would say I spend at least 10 hrs. a day online, and no more then 24 :-P. I guess when your work in web design/development its OK to be online that much. Well at least I tell myself that. 2. What is your browser homepage set to? Nothing at all. I have a google search built into Safari. I hate when a browser opens up and loads a page. It is always something I don't want. 3. Do you use any instant messaging programs? If so, which one(s)? I use Trillian on my PC and Fire and iChat on my Mac. I can't stand having multiple IM apps open at once. If only all my contacts would use AIM, there would be no need for things such as Fire and Trillian. But that never happens. There is always that person you need to talk to for work who only using Yahoo IM, etc, etc. I am using iChat more and more because of voice and video chat. The voice chat is really nice. The video chat is only great if your upload speeds are pretty good. But I have done video chat with my iSight and as long as it stays on this side of the continent (East Coast) it seems to be OK. Part of the reason I spend so much time online is because of IM. I utilize IM for my work all the time, it really helps. 4. Where was your first webpage located? My first web page was located on my Dad's web server, that was a long time ago. My Dad is the Network Administrator for Plain Local Schools. The entire reason I started to learn HTML and how to run web servers was because of Plain Local Schools. Plain Local got a grant as I believe from the OhioNET program to be one of the first districts in Ohio to get internet access. I know Plain Local had internet before the school district I went to, Ravenna City Schools, had any. I was always jealous of that, and I loved going down to my Dad's house on the weekends to learn what I could about the Internet. There were other reasons of course, but now that I look back at it, I learned a heck of a lot about the Internet because of dad's toys. My first real Web site was at kenneth.edwards.net at what is now Net Identity. Then I got meancode.com (way before I started my own business). 5. How long have you had your current website? I have had BreakingWindows.com since January 2003, when I bought my first PC. I have had Meancode.com for 4 or 5 years now. Before that I had kenneth.edwards.net for about 2 yrs. and before that I had pages on my Dad's web server. I am so glad I never had to deal with the likes of geocities or tripod, etc, etc. Well that is not true, I had to deal with friends who had accounts with those services :-P.
