When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?
tynamite's avatar I first wanted to be a fashion designer, then architect so I could design buildings but I scrapped that to get into something to with computers. I wanted to be a writer, run a tv channel, radio channel, have my own operating system, hardware, software (like Apple), make tv shows, write books, make albums, make podcasts and be a fashion designer.

The first website I made was a portal to compete with MSN/Lycos/Yahoo/AOL/Go called A.Surfer. I shut it down as I couldn't compete with those large companies as they had lots of staff and resources. I was going to write all the content for my portal.

The second website I made was called NAET (pronounced nay-yet). It was designed to compete with Encarta, About.com, BBC Bitesize, Webmonkey and it was supposed to be an educational website about academia and technology. I scrapped it as the amount of work to create the content for an educational website is LOADS and it was a lot for me to do one person.

The third website I made was called elerhost, which was a web hosting company. I shut it down as there were too many cartels in the industry, intellectual property theft cartels, so it was hard to compete, even if offering free hosting.

The forth website I made was Prowler which was a collection of blogs and tools to help webmasters get free traffic. It had various tools like banner exchange, link building, topsites, a review blog, link directory etc. I scrapped that because I don't have enough traffic to justify running it, but once I get a high traffic website, I'll put Prowler back up.

The next websites I ran were, Tynamite (music), BI Radio and Filter My Arse. Filter My Arse was an educational wiki for school kids LOL :D

After that I ran two review blogs called MoreGs (for making money online) and Prowler Loves (webmaster review blog), and I shut them down as I could see the writing on the wall. The market was getting saturated with too many "review blogs" and I knew it would no longer be profitable in the years to come, but I did make over £1000 from it, thousands of pounds.

What's an assertion, and what should I type in?

Compesh is a question and answer (and debate) website, so before you make a debate, you better learn what an assertion is. I suppose you already know what a question is, and that you've typed it in the box. ;)

An assertion, is basically a statement you can make, that is either true or false.

Richer people have better health.

The question for that would be, Do richer people have better health?

And don't forget to make your assertion, match your question.
