The Presurfer Is 15 Years Old Today


The Presurfer is 15 years old today. Still here after all those years. Can't believe it myself. What started as a personal link page in 2000 is still going strong. Not because of what I do, but because of what you do. You visit this site and some of you have been doing that for many years. Thank you for your loyalty.

I never thought I could maintain this website for so long. But it's been fun the past 15 years and I'm still having a great time. It isn't always easy though, but fortunately a lot of people help me by sending links every now and then. I appreciate that very much. Thank you! You know who you are.

The Presurfer was born on the same day as Everlasting Blort, one of my favourite blogs. Please pay them a visit.

Congrats! I learned of Presurfer from a newsletter reviewing Internet sites, when you had your original format. I especially remember the Hitler Dance web site you posted. Here's to many more years of success.

When I started reading your blog, I was in middle school; now I'm starting in the first year of my PhD!

Thank you for all of the interesting content! I'm on all sorts of content aggregators (Hacker News, Reddit, Lobst.rs) but I still find myself returning to the Presurfer everyday!

Best,
Jack
