I haven't lost any of them. They all still exist on thumb drives, inside of a pharmacy pill bottle, next to my notebook computer. I have several copies of each one.
Since web sites disappear off of the web all of the time I have download many of them to preserve the information on them for future personal use.
Back in the early 90's I bought a domain and got a site hosted. I only wanted it for the email boxes, so I didn't put much on the site. Then when I was bored, I started writing a page with my observations about the software development process. Every time I had a new idea, I'd start a new section at the bottom and add a little more. There didn't seem to be any point to it as a web site, so it was mostly for my own use. After all, who would ever want to read a series of fragmented articles like that, let alone check back to see if I had written more?
In a way, of course, it was one of the first blogs on the internet.
