I figured it’d be interesting to ask how many of you remember these 10 things from back in the day!
Add up your points:
- You’ve read Secrets of Successful Web Sites — 1 point if you have, 2 points if you still have your copy
- You remember Gabocorp and feel like they could have been so much more — 1 point if you remember it
- You remember Highfive.com — 1 point
- You had a Geocities, Anglefire, or similar site in 1996 or earlier — 1 point, make it 2 points if you can still remember the address
- You used either Dreamweaver 1.2, PageMill, Flash before it was Flash, Homesite 1.0 — 1 point for each
- You can still remember your ICQ number (without looking) — 2 points
- You remember when Web Page Design for Designers was cool — 1 point
- You were a member of the HTML Writers Guild — 1 point
- You once had Netscape and IE buttons on your site — 1 point
- You remember when Yahoo had a gray background and an aliased logo — 1 point
0 to 3 Points: Sorry mate, you probably didn’t build web sites in the late 90s.
4 to 7 Points: You’re gaining knowledge fast but still have things to learn.
8 to 9 Points: Very impressive. Let me guess, you never joined the HTML Writers Guild. Well neither did I.
10+ Points: You’re totally awesome and people want to be like you, you spend way to much time at the computer. You’ve probably spent more than 10,000 hrs in front of your computer in the last 10 yrs (and you thought tanning booths were for losers).
How many did you get? What do you remember?
