Twenty Five Years Online

A while back, I was looking through some archived files on my computer, and found a very old page for my website listing updates. It started with an update entry for 25th September 1995, for the Latin translations of the names of the Animal spells in Ars Magica Third Edition. The pages were on Geocities at the time, but they are still available here, and have never been offline. Thus, I have had a website for 25 years.

Which is longer than Facebook, Netflix, Google, and possibly Amazon (it’s a bit of a race with Amazon; we set up at about the same time).

It’s also more than half my life. While there are lots of people who have had an online presence for more than half of their life, most of them are somewhat younger than I am.
