On March 24, 2000, just months after the global Y2K disasters had ravaged the world, I registered the domain erwintang.com under my name. Every year since then I have renewed my domain for one additional year, always finding a reason to keep it.

Today marks the first decade of existence for erwintang.com. I admit I haven’t really done a whole lot with this site. I certainly value my blog and it’s really cool to have my own personal e-mail address but I’ve seen some pretty cool personal web sites out there. In hindsight, I should have really pursued that idea I had in 2002 where I would allow people to upload their videos to my web site for free so that others could watch them.

As we close the chapter on the first ten years here online, I say thanks to everyone for their support and loyalty over the last decade. I feel like I should have run some sorta contest to celebrate the occasion. I’ll see what I can do. Perhaps I’ll give away another set of promotional clothing again. I’ve been threatening to make a bunch of panties with the et.com address on it, maybe I’ll finally go through with it this time.

Thanks for being with me for the first ten years and I look forward to another ten more.


  1. Still have mine as well. I did the math and have been a consistent reader of this blog for a full 1/4 of my life.

  2. Thanks for your continued support everyone!

    Phil, that’s an amazing amount of time spent reading this little dog and pony show. Are you sure there aren’t some other things you want to do with your time? 🙂
