420 has passed, Ten and a half years

As of today, we have 418 days left of Bush running the country (unless he can figure out how to truly make himself a dictator in the next year or so). I meant to mention this two days ago, but didn’t get around to it. If you watch my home page, Dorffweb.com, you will found a counter so we can all count together, sort of a 99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall thing, I guess. It is a simple Flash program, feel free to steal it and pass it around.

I was looking today for something on ebay.com and noticed I have been a member, buying and selling at various levels for ten years and six months — I started using the site before it was “ebay.com” – at that time it was called Auctionweb, and the url was “http://www.ebay.com/aw”. Just astonishing.

Not quite as impressive, but my Amazon.com history goes back to May, 1998. I suppose it is possible I started using it before then and they just don’t display the records, but I doubt it. I have vague memories of my first Amazon.com purchases and it was interesting to browse through the history of purchases. Time flies when you’re having fun.
