Five questions
I cribbed these from cdybedahl

1. How much time do you spend online each day?

I'm never sure how to answer this question. I mean, I work all day sitting at an computer (actually a few computers) that are 'online' all the time. Most of the work I do is local, coding on the machine in front of me, etc. So is that online? I often have an SSH connection to Sidehack running in an xterm, but I'm not using it constantly. If you count all the time I'm sitting at the console of networked computer, then probably 10-14 hours on a typical day. I've been working long hours lately too, and after the hours at work I tend to spend some time catching up on personal stuff online.

2. What is your browser homepage set to?

Blank page. I like being able to open a browser without it automatically going off to connect to some site. And there is no page that I want to see every time I open my browser.

3. Do you use any instant messaging programs? If so, which one(s)?

Yes, I tend to use Trillian under Windows and Gaim on Linux. I have accounts on AIM, YIM, ICQ, and MSN. Though I tend not to connect with MSN often. I also used to use Odigo and Jabber, and my accounts may still be floating around out there. Sometimes I sign into IRC, but on private servers.

4. Where was your first webpage located?

My first public webpage was probably something I created at The World around 1994. I'd played with HTML on and off since 1991, but I don't think WPI offered any public space back then.

5. How long have you had your current website?

When did I register megazone.org? Um, 1996? 1997? The current incarnation of my website - the look and feel, and sadly much of the content, is from 1998.

Browser set to blank "home" page.

This may be the simplest but best trick EVHAR for your browser. Been doing this for a year or two now and goddamn do I love it.

1.How much time do you spend online each day?
Hell I dunno, I wake up, check my e-mail, read my friends page, read the local news and then usually surf while sipping me morning coffee and while getting ready for my day. Then throughout the day I get on here and there to check things. I do spend most of my evenings online.

2. What is your browser homepage set to?
http://www.kvvu.com/

3. Do you use any instant messaging programs? If so, which one(s)?
Just Yahoo. Not savy enough to know what the hell Trillion is! lol I used to use ICQ but I about killed that voice “ut-oh”! GAH!

4. Where was your first webpage located?
If I tell you, you will look at it and laugh at me! lol

5. How long have you had your current website?
Don’t really have a current web site – my first one is still up, and I’ve had my online journal since 2000.
