Ten Years Pro Vivian (February 24th 2008)
I cannot exactly remember the date when I discovered Vivian Hsu in the Internet. That time I've been a newcomer to the Web - having a Windows 95 computer with an
AMD 80468 processor running at 133 MHz clock, 32 MByte RAM, 1.2 GByte disk space and modem connection to the Internet with
"impressive" 28 kbit/sec (theoratically!). I have described my experiences from that time in the "Prologue" section of "Pro Vivian"
and decided to fix February 24th 1998 as the day which marked an
absolutely new epoch in my life - it was the day when I published my first version of Pro Vivian and
this is the only date which is truly documented. The real start might have been
10 years - sounds like a very long time but actually fade away so fast. Computer technologies have improved by factors between 10 and 100 meanwhile and I had to learn many new Internet features again and again in order to follow the World of Vivian Hsu, the last efforts being to set up and maintain "Hawkbit's Forums". I do not regret one single minute which I spent for "Pro Vivian" and "Hawkbit's Forums". All has been done with deep feelings of love even if it was always clear that this love would definitely remain kind of illusion.
10 years - sounds like a very long time but actually fade away so fast. Vivian has nothing lost of her human spirits and her beauty at all, on the contrary.
