Tingilinde began on July 7, 2003 with a link to an earlier blog on another platform. 11 years, 8 months and 22 days. A bit over $1,000 in hosting fees.
Thanks to everyone who sends comments and suggest links.. this goes back to an email list and the Mosaic days followed by an early blogish site going by the same name (the Crandall Surf Report). In 1997 my employer at the time was getting into "the Internet" and decided that since I worked for them they owned the content (it was not published using any of their resources). I stopped for awhile only restarting it as a Radio weblog after I left the company - the Crandall Surf Report 2.0 - I had no idea it was still being served.
The name has a connection to one of J.R.R. Tolkein's languages.
