How long have you been a PowWeb customer?
I moved my website to Powweb in March of 2000.
How much time, on average, do you spend at the PowWeb Forums per day?
On average, I spend a cumulative hour unless I'm following an issue that's being discussed or helping someone debug code.
Are you a web designer or programmer? If yes, When did you create your first web site?
I'm both a web designer and programmer. I put up my first handful of web pages on the University of California, San Diego servers in 1992. Believe me when I say they looked nothing like web pages do now - LOL
What advice would you give a first time web hosting client?
It would depend on what their online goals are, but in general I would tell even the amateur hobbyist to learn to code by hand. I feel it's a waste of time learning specific software that may or not be applicable in the future, or even exist for that matter.
How do you see the web changing in the next five years?
I see it becoming more dynamic in almost every way, especially in the mobile arena. For every desktop purchased, 20 times as many laptops, PDAs, cell phones and other mobile internet appliances get sold each day.
What are your other hobbies?
Music, music and more music. Did I mention music?
Favorite books, television shows or movies?
Books: Other than my own?
Television Shows: No favorites
Movies: Dogma, Brazil, Caligula, 5th Element, Angel Heart, 12 Monkeys
What is your favorite quote or saying?
"Ah... those jazz guys are just mak'n that stuff up" - Homer Simpson.
