Celebrating Fifteen Years

While lately I’ve been endlessly streaming the latest news with horrified fascination, this morning my calendar unexpectedly popped up a reminder set over a year ago… Today is the fifteenth anniversary of my big-league blogging debut on the Internet Explorer Team’s blog.

My first post there, “A HTTP Detective Story” remains one of my favorites. Sadly, its topic feels all too familiar: a website took a dependency upon a browser quirk, the Referer and User-Agent headers were critical elements of the repro, and I used Fiddler to root-cause the problem. I’ve learned (and shared) so much more about these topics over the last fifteen years, and I appreciate the readers who’ve followed me from the IEBlog to IEInternals (237 posts) to Telerik’s Fiddler blog (41 posts) to my book, to this, my newest blog, TextSlashPlain (189 posts and counting!).

Here’s to learning and sharing for the next 15 years!

With gratitude,

-Eric
