I'm fast approaching my Ten Year Anniversary as an IT Professional.
Right before that I was an IT Amateur. I'd dicked around on computers all my life, but the only thing to ever make it out into the world was this shitty blogging thing I hacked up in PHP in the hours between finishing nightfill and eating cereal out of the box and falling asleep.
While searching my hard drive for old music playlists from my IT Amateur era (so that I could recreate them in Spotify and listen to them on my way to work tomorrow) I found a scrawled txt file: "wherethefuckis.com"
Before Google Maps there was a website called WhereIs that did turn by turn directions. In fact, it still exists.
My plan was to create a website called wherethefuckis and it was going to use the original site's database/directions and simply insert swear words into the directions. Like, "Take a fucking left at this shitty street."
It never saw the light of day as in those days I didn't really know what an API or Library was, obviously.
Now I do!
