    Happy 25th Birthday WWW!

    Internauts, today we celebrate this glorious technology that brings us all together! On August 23, 1991 -- 25 years ago today -- the public gained access for the first time to the World Wide Web, designed and deployed by computer scientist Tim Berners-Lee at CERN in Switzerland.

    The occasion is known as Internaut Day. It's more than a change, it's a destiny in a new universe. Every day something new, every day.

    And it seems that the first web page is still up and running

    On a lighter side, not forgetting that I’m a cat lover,
    I wish Many Happy Returns to:
    The greatest invention of all, by the worthiest of all cat lovers.
