It must have been awhile, and now, I’m on my 100th entry on this site. It’s amazing looking at how this thing has even started.
It was around last year when I was looking for a way by which I can save my bookmarks (or favorites in internet explorer) so that I can access them in whichever machine I’m working on. I had my computer reformatted that time, and I had to add the websites that I frequented for quick access.
I was thinking if I could have a customized website where all my bookmarks, shortcuts to my favorite sites (e.g., email, personal internet banking, chessworld.net, etc.) are immediately available, it would definitely help speed up my online browsing. I googled “free website”, and it led me to the best user-friendly, free webhost so far then — Yahoo! Geocities. (Unfortunately, I didn’t happen to stumble upon the various bookmarking tools like Delicious, not even the much simpler ones like My Yahoo!, Personalized Google Homepage, etc.)
What made geocities most viable is the handiness of the site builder. At least, I didn’t need to have knowledge of html encoding (although eventually, I decided I needed at least the basic commands so I tried studying them, I even bought a book for html that I didn’t finish reading at all).
So what have I got back then? Presenting…. the J.O. TUVILLO & CO. website.
