Anniversary is 4 years old today.  I only know that because I had to pay the hosting and domain registration bill today.  I seriously considered abandoning Ratlands; I haven’t been writing much lately and haven’t cranked out an essay in months.  But, at roughly $10 a month, Ratlands is one of my less expensive vices, so I guess I’ll stick it out another year.

I started Ratlands on Blogger in the fall of 2002 as an experiment.  In May, 2003 I moved it to an ATT address and started the process for real.  I’ve been at it ever since.  In June of 2006 I took the plunge, registered the domain name, and started using WordPress.  Whether any of these milestones are significant is, of course, open for debate.

I guess this is as good a time as any to thank my 3 loyal readers.  I don’t know what sort of twisted sense of loyalty or obligation motivates you to keep coming back here, but thanks.
