Wow – how things change. 9 years ago today I first registered olorinpc.com 1/1/2001. This site has undergone quite a few transformations over the years. From a hand-coded in html site to a full blog running the latest version of wordpress.
My old logo:
A few different versions from mid-2001 till last year when I went to the current theme. Not all of the versions I tried out, but this is a good selection.
The site has undergone a few different hosts as well. Originally hosted off a server in my dorm room my freshmen year of college, then off my student webspace, a server my dad provided, blogger, godaddy, and now as of a couple of years ago 1and1. In some ways, I miss running off of my own server, but there is a whole lot less word to having someone else host.
Merged the site with comp.cx for a while. (Which is now gone.)
Scripts didn’t pick up well in the archive site….
Migrated to blogger for a while when I started updating more regularly, though we had a newsfeed on comp.cx.
First version of this site when I moved it to wordpress. It was actually a sub-site of supergeekblog.com for a while till I moved it to it’s own host.
Well the long and the short of it is, for almost a decade olorinpc.com has been around in one form or another. Before that I had a freeservers site, a geocities site for a bit, etc. So I have been doing websites in one form or another for over a decade. As we start 2010 it is kind of crazy to think about. On the other hand, makes me wonder what the next changes to olorinpc.com will bring!
