Welcome to Webbed Up!

I am sure you are curious about the name of this blog. It comes from the sketch by Three Dead Trolls in a Baggie, called "How to keep your parents off the Internet". The full quote sounds something like this: "I wanna be surfing the email and be webbed up to netpages and such!".

And here's what Urban Dictionary has to say on the subject:
All Webbed Up
Every aspect of your life is associated with the internet (ie. talking to friends via the internet, messenger, my space, personals) Also can be used to describe a person addicted to the internet

I've been online since 1990 and making web pages since 1996 or so. You can see the full list of my sites here. I am currently trying to catch up with new technologies, like, say, blogging. Not yet sure what the buzz is all about, I am pretty sure I've been blogging long before the term was even coined - for example, check my infamous Life of Programmer page.

Anyway, I guess the best way to figure out any new technology is to dive right in, so here comes Webbed Up!

I'm an Internet addict, mainly thanks to the constant online homework. I get bored with homework, I just click right over to the Dean Koontz community.

Very interesting blog, is it updated weekly...

Good to hear from you, this is the first comment I got :)

Not sure on the update frequency yet,m since the blog is brand new. I guess I'll post as often as I feel there's something worth writing about. I currently have 2 more posts roaming around my head ("Me and Microsoft" and "Living Online"), hopefully they will materialize soon.

Your "life of Programmer" was very funny, it reminds me of a story someone told me, they worked on the helplines for some company and someone rang to ask where the cd-rom goes. When directed to the correct the caller (obviously sounding embarrassed) explained they had been using that as a coffee stand!
He swears it's true, I really can't see anyone being that dumb.
