Friday Five:

1. How much time do you spend online each day?
Hmm. Well, I jump on as soon as I get up to check my e-mail and comments… and then there’s eight hours at work… and then probably at least another hour at home… Good grief. Probably 8-10 hours a day. And believe it or not, that’s actually an improvement over my life in London.

2. What is your browser homepage set to?
At work, Google. At home, My Yahoo. I like to read the news.

3. Do you use any instant messaging programs? If so, which one(s)?
I use iChat AV, which is Apple’s IM client for AOL/Netscape Instant Messenger. You won’t find me on it as much these days because the firewall at work doesn’t allow it and the whole time difference thing makes coordinating chat difficult.

4. Where was your first webpage located?
I started my very first webpage in 1996 when I was a sophomore at Notre Dame. I just used the Internet Wayback Machine to look it up, and here is it: Kristine Howard’s Page O’ Wonders. (I so wish I was joking. What a nerd. Although I’m not the only one.) You can also see the very first version of the Roald Dahl Home Page, featuring the extra-cool javascript thingy that scrolls text at the bottom of your browser. Yeah, I was cool.

5. How long have you had your current website?
As you can see from the archives, web-goddess has existed since the beginning of 2001. That’s two and a half years!
