Old stats coming back to haunt you

I keep one of my older sites online under this domain. The site was StudentNet, a project I undertook in secondary school to teach other students about the net etc. It never really did much of anything and I just keep it there for posterity more than anything else. I was intrigued to see whether the hit counter still worked and low and behold it did and it’s been counting visitors since 9th July 1998. 😯 The grand total of visitors in almost 9 years? 10,100. πŸ˜†

    Wow, I forget how young you are sometimes. I can’t believe you kids had teh interwebs in school. We just discovered it in college. Mind you, I was late to that show too; in school we had a state-of-the-art Apple IIgs. Get this: It had a colour screen, and one of those brilliant 3.5 inch floppy drives, you could store loads of stuff on them. Especially if you got your hands on a 1.4mb disk.

    Kev: Colour screen. I do remember doing some sort of basic “progamming” that made a turtle go around the screen. Think we also had some form of Atari.

    Robin: Yes, 1999. I was in sixth year. By god that’s crazy. I remember your site and all. πŸ™‚ The competition was fierce back then. πŸ˜†
