Soufflés on a spaceship*
I did some work at the IFA (consumer electronics exhibition thingy ...) this week and came across two girls who did some research on internet use and one of their questions was

"What was the first website you ever visited?"

My reply to this is kind of boring actually. When we got internet I visited the website of the internet provider, set up an e-mail address, looked around a bit on the website, perhaps read a news article or two and that was it. This was of course back in the dial up days, so it probably took me an hour to do this and of course, the internet wasn't as busy back then either. I did a search for some of my favourite bands a bit later and a lot of them didn't even have a website ...

So, what's yours? Or what's your guess, if you fail to remember.



*talking Doctor Who ... I will be personally offended if the Doctor doesn't get a "I have had it with these motherfucking dinosaurs on this motherfucking spaceship!" line in the next episode. Or maybe Rory would be the better candidate to say it ... anyway, someone has to say it. Alternatively, I would accept a guest appearance by Samuel Jackson ...
