Tid Bit

A Little Trivia

First up for the New Year is a little trivia and it was taken from this week’s PC World’s brief of the week which was published today. The topic is the Internet’s 100 oldest dot-coms and I thought it would be interesting to us.

Symbolics.com is said to be the oldest commercial dot-com domain and is still on the Internet. It was registered on March 15, 1985 according to this article by J R Raphael dated December 21, 2008. I visited the site and it appears to be like a flyer for the company with a few links within a long paragraph leading to the products (static pages)…a good indication of how things were done when the Internet first became widely available to the general public.

Other notables:
xerox.com: January 9, 1986
hp.com: March 3, 1986
ibm.com: March 19, 1986
sun.com: March 19, 1986
intel.com: March 25, 1986
adobe.com: November 17, 1986
apple.com: February 19, 1987
cisco.com: May 14, 1987

For the full list of 100 oldest dot-com domains see link below

I am open to suggestions for topics to blog about for the New Year so please submit your topics.

As always, let’s have fun learning together.

In His Service,
Ava

There is a genocide in Palastine.

you should know that sadly, every person is the maid of Jews except Jews according to distorted Torah.

The attacks of Israel over Palastinians are the tactic of votion on Jenuary.Israel is the occupying government.we should prevent cruelty of Israel in Don't drink coco-cola. don't support Israel..Do not smoke marlboro. Do not support Israel

Beware of products from Israel. These may be also recognised by their code - read the numeral codes on the products. First 3 digits are the signature of the country of producent or country of origin. Israel is: 729... .


Boycott Israel, now!
