My Friends Goes .COM, .NET, .Biz…
I found more and more of my friend begin to register their own domain names and begin to host personal website. I owe a “friendly link” to every one of them. It is becoming popular to host personal websites now. I know I have ignored a section of links on my homepage, which can be found in most blogs. Here are some of websites by my friends – listed by order of time I became aware of the existence of their websites. Criteria to be listed in this page are
- The owner is my good friends in real life
- I know the owner for at least one year before I know his/her web presence
- The person has personal website with top level domain name
- The website is still live and accessible
Most of the sites are in Chinese.
- Wangchen.com Check out the good pictures of Daocheng and Yading. He just came back from the fantastic place.
- Lijia.biz It is a FTP based website. However, I love the simple interface – it is not a bad idea to design a website like this: Simple, easy to navigate. :-)
- 9718.net Eddie’s site
- Run2me.com Run’s website. Just started but with good potential. ;-)
Maybe I have lost many others. I hope I can add more later. Please remind me if you know I have missed anybody meeting the criteria.
My Sites of Two Year Ago
When I registered my domain name three years ago – more preciously, on Sept 6, 2003 (my WHOIS record), I didn’t expect what it will look like three years later. I checked my archive and can still find out my old homepage at the end of year 2000.
I just found the old home page still looks good. I even noticed I begin the practice similar to weblog using the limited functions from FrontPage since 2000. It was the new headlines marked with date.
Archive of the Previous Pages
Internet Archive provides great service for anyone to go back to the history of a website. It brings people to see what microsoft.com looks like in 1996 and what Yahoo! looks like in 1997.
Of cause, it also allow me to go back to the history of my site. At the date this entry is created, 1143 pages were archived by archive.org for wangjianshuo.com. 14 snapshot of the home page were archived in 2002 and 4 versions in 2003.
So one of the advantages and disadvantages to create a page accessible on Internet is, it will be kept in the history archive – for ever….
Update about Traffic Rules
The new traffic rule in China was approved today. I found I begin to be extremely interested in such kind of news after I got the driver’s license.
According to the new rule, the following big changes happened:
New Driver can Use the Express Ways
New driver can use the express way immediately after they get the driver’s license. The old rule was that new drivers have to wait for one year before they are permitted to enter the express way. This is good news for me since I can use the express way. However, I will be conservative and will not drive onto the highway before I am 100% confident.
The Highest Speed of Expressway is Set to 120 km/hour
It seems driving faster than 120 km/hour in China is forbidden – then why bother make the good cars with highest speed of 200+km/hour?
Human Not Permitted on Express Way
It is obvious. However, the explanation for this rule made me LOL. The reason to keep human out of express way is: “All vehicles with designed highest speed less than 70 km/hour are not permitted on express way, such as human, …..” Haha. Then what is my designed highest speed?
