First, I would like to confer my apology to previous users of myHq. This update has been a long time coming and should have been completed years ago. In addition, while it is a decent implementation, it is sub-par to what can be done. It can be better and in time, it will be.
That said, a not-so-perfect system that works now is better than the perfect one that is never lauched. And, I now realize that time in college and time now is a vastly different proposition. So you now have the new myHq.
While I had some help for the colors/icons, this is basically my 'little' project. Actual work time for this base version of the new myHq was only about 2 odd man(person)-months.. and if I were in college, it would have been completed in 3 months. Since I'm not, it took closer to 10 months. As I said, college-time and now-time is different. There is more to life.
Enjoy the site. There is a whole load of features that is to come and with enough time, you'ld see it soon :>
The original myHq was thought out to be an online bookmark management system in my freshman year at college. It was to be a nice simple online application allowing you to upload/download/add/edit/share/delete your bookmarks.
It was pretty obvious even at that time (1995) that something like this was required. I had just started @ UPenn 'not Penn State' ( haha ) and used multiple computers throughout the day. I even did a static site at that time. Still, time came.. and went.. and it wasn't until late 98 that the first version of myHq was completed. That took maybe 2-3 weeks. Yup, it didn't take that long.. but realize that even then, I already had 10 odd years or so where I've been around computers futzing around and creating little daft programs.
After graduating in '99, myHq was sad to say, somewhat neglected. I took up a job as a consultant @ Scient (now defunct) and worked on carstation.com (also disappeared.. well, subsumed I think) & hotwire.com ( still around.. hooray! ) - a great experience all in all. Left in '00, did some more stuff (and updates here and there for myHq) and now it is fall 2006. myHq is now about 8 years old.
