Happy birthday, vantan.org

On 25th February in the year 2000, a law student feverishly registered her first domain name while sitting in her room in her little student house, connected to an amazingly fast university network.
She had earned enough money viewing online ads to pay for the domain as well as a year of webhosting. She had completed her research and found a deal worth pursuing.
She tried to register a dot com, but alas somebody had registered the name she wanted just two months earlier. After berating herself for not making up her mind soon enough, she decided that a dot org wouldn’t be too bad either.
And so vantan.org was born.
And I shall go to sleep now.
