twelve seems like a lot

The domain name is a little bit older than that. But I consider this date the birthday of my blog because it’s the anniversary of my first blogger post. I am finding it very difficult to wrap my head around the fact that I have been blogging (more or less continuously) for twelve years. Unfortunately I don’t have time right now to write an epic “looking back” post. I did, however, redesign the site over the weekend as a sort of birthday present to myself.

Any old schoolers out there still reading?

What Is This? is the personal weblog of me, David Vincent Gagne. I've been publishing here since 1999, which makes this one of the oldest continuously-updated websites on the Internet.

A few years ago I was trying to determine what cocktails I could make with the alcohol I had at home. I searched the App Store but couldn't find an app that would let me do that, so I built one.
