Old enough to remember when small business web sites didn't need a database connection to show you their home page.
@djsundog Old enough to have written that website. 😐

@hummingrain felt so cool that first time I gave myself a email@example.com email address
@djsundog It was such a simpler time when you could easily impress people with your guestbook CGI Perl or shell script that just appended comments to a plain text file that just got stuck in an HTML page with a server side include...
...and people were so innocent and considerate that we haven't even heard of a CAPTCHA or other anti-web-spam stuff yet.
Maybe we can't go back but we could really use some simplicity on the web again. #TooManyLayers
