The Presurfer Is 12 Years Old Today


The Presurfer is 12 years old today. User experience site FatDUX once calculated the length of an Internet year. The result was that 1 Internet year is like 4.7 years in real life. Which means the Presurfer would be 56 years and 3 months old if the site was a person. Which also means that in two years time this blog will be older than I am. You do the math.

Just two words: THANK YOU. You made this possible because without you the Presurfer would be nowhere. So, thank you for your loyalty. And one of my favorite blogs, Everlasting Blort, happens to be 12 years old today too. Please pay them a visit because without them, the Presurfer wouldn't be here at all.

congratulations
I have been reading the presurfer for the entire 12 years. I do not buy the internet years argument.
You are still here and linkfilter is gone.

Like many others you were my first blog linkback way back when.
My blog is long gone but The Presurfer is like the Energizer Bunny and nothing seems to stop you whatever!

Happy Birthday! I gave up on TV years ago, I gave up on local
radio a while back.. and have given up on most of the internet
(all due to the annoying ads) - So, my three haunts on the
web are news, weather and Presurfer. Thanks for pulling
together some great stuff & many happy returns!
