Ok, so this post is completely off-topic. I ran into this great web page with fun internet trivia so I thought I’d turn some of the items into questions and share them with all of you.

  1. Where did Google get its name?
  2. Where did Yahoo! get its name?
  3. In February 2004, what country led the world in Internet penetration, with 76.9 percent of people connected to the Internet?
  4. What is a ‘bastion host?’
  5. What are ‘browser safe colours?’
  6. It took 13 years for television to reach 50 million users. How long did it take the Internet to reach 50 million users?
  7. How many times per minute does the average computer user blink?
  8. What was the first computer company to register for a domain name?
  9. What is “6bone?”
  10. Domain registration was free until 1995. Who changed it?

    Every time I try to follow the link here it crashes Firefox! Even if I try putting it directly into a separate tab, it really doesn’t like it
