Friday Five

Okay, it's late to be getting to this, but I'm currently 100+ posts behind, and just got to this week's list, which is kind of amusing...

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

Depends on your definitions. I'm actively on the Net practically all the time I'm awake -- both my machine at the office and the one at home are permanently connected, and always turned on.

In practice, I'm doing Internet-related stuff an average of about 10 hours a day on weekdays. (I do this stuff for a living.)

I probably spend about 2 hours a day doing fun online stuff, which I suspect is the real intent of the question, though.

2. What is your browser homepage set to?

Our personal homepage -- www.waks.org.

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

All of them. Well, that's a bit of an exaggeration, but only a small one -- I'm actively on AIM and MSN all the time, have a Yahoo account that I use periodically, a Sametime account that I use for testing, and I really ought to be playing with RTC more than I am. (The name of my company is "Applied Messaging" -- I do IM for a living.)

4. Where was your first webpage located?

My longtime employer Intermetrics. The URL was something like http://www.inmet.com/~justin/. That was long ago, though, and that page is long-dead. (Indeed, going to www.inmet.com takes you through an amusing maze of redirections, one for each time the company was acquired.)

5. How long have you had your current website?

We've had www.waks.org for a fair number of years now (I'd guess that the Generic Waks Family Homepage has been up for about five years); it's been redirecting to the current physical location, jducoeur.org, ever since the cable providers turned into assholes about running personal websites over the cablemodem in the wake of the Code Red mess.
