March 11, 2003 was the date KPCowling.com domain was first registered. I'd lost track of how long we've actually been publishing this website. That fact escaped me until doing a little research on some statistics for KPCowling. Our 10 year anniversary should have been a big thing, but I kind of let it run on autopilot for last few years. Well maybe longer than that.
For the first 2 or 3 years, Pamela was the webmaster and was responsible for design and content. She published mainly personal/family type news and pictures. At first we used free webhosting through our ISP. After getting high speed internet with a different ISP, I took over and moved it on our own server. I use Joomla as the content management system. Started off running it on Windows XP, then to Linux Distro called Clark Connect and then on Windows 2000 Server for last 6 or 7 years. Recently moved back again to a Linux server. This is the third server I have used. Have always hosted on server class equipment, abet most was old outdated equipment. The web camera has been most of why I've kept it running. It has been my hobby.
Over the years we have made a few connections with people who enjoy our web camera. Some had grown up around here and left, or want to move here. We have befriended a few of them on Facebook. I'm trying to publish more original content this year. We'll see how that goes. For those who come visit us, I want to say thanks
Here is some snapshot of our website over the Years.
