My first post EVER on a blog was back in and around March 2003 but I had lost a few months of posts in an upgrade somehow. I vaguely remember writing about a cool new blogging tool that I liked, added some stuff about SlashDot and then rambled on about how I might get used to writing on a blog. I had always loved to write and typing was so much easier than pen and paper. I had just started taking classes for my Masters degree in computer science and I figured that this would be a good way to get my arms around some programming projects. I really wish I could find a cache somewhere of those pages. I might look around my old hard drives to see if there is still something there.
Wait…here is something. This is from the first b2 install on my server at home, dug up from the depths of my old Linux box.
I have completely redone my website. I think it needed a change and I was getting enough hits on the site to actually spend some time on it. Most of the older links work in the same manner. Look for pictures on the right hand side. If you were pointing friends/family to my website for your pictures, dont worry, everything will still work the same. I showed it to Jennifer before I made it official, she said she liked the older site. We will see.
This new page is a PHP frontend to a MySql database and the code is from b2. Good job! Refer to the bottom of the page for time to execute and links to b2. Please register or leave me some comments.
Brings back fond memories of exciting blogging frontiers! What was your first post about? Do you still have it somewhere? Still feel the same about blogging?
