Ten Years of Silverfir.net

Note: This post is over a year old. It may contain outdated information and broken links. Please temper your expectations accordingly.

More than ten years ago, I registered the silverfir.net domain name. From its humble beginnings as debian server at my parents house, to several stints at various friends’ houses, to the multi-state distributed network it is now (WA, CA, VA), it has served me and my friends well — and will continue to, long into the future.

In this time, silverfir has been the home of my blog and many friends’ blogs and personal website projects. Its various servers have served as file servers, a development platforms, web hosts, and learning devices. It has been hacked once, but there wasn’t much interesting to see, I’m glad to say.

From the whois records:

    I don’t think the design for Checksum Arcanius has changed, except of course the addition of Like buttons! I remember back in the day when we had our programming/politics/philosophy chat group on AIM. Besides you there was Bobby and Scott. I met Scott in person shortly after moving to SF, as he was living in Palo Alto at the time, and I met Bobby in person on a random vacation to Seattle. We should get lunch sometime and I’ll have completed the trifecta.
