Every so often I like to go to The Wayback Machine and just plug in random sites. Kind of interesting to see the internet from 10 years ago :D

Thanks for stopping by Aveline, and jump starting some conversation around here. We get like 200 visitors a month, as this phpbb forum dies a slow death like all the others on the internet. :mrgreen: Oh yes, archive.org is awesome. I've lost count how many people I've told about it who were saying something like "I wish I could see ______" on the internet. Including, most recently, a local radio talk show host. Although I just emailed him, I didn't call into his show or anything.

Here's my first foray into web design, circa 1998; a fan website for an adult comic book. No, not THAT kind of adult comic book, I mean like goofy Family Guy type humor. Definitely wasn't made for kids.

I remember Ralph Snart! The shop I frequented and worked at for a while carried a wide range of small press / underground / adult comics. I didn't read it regularly, but would occassionally give it a look through.

I was introduced to it by my brother-in-law around 1989 when I would have been 26. I hadn't looked at a comic book in 15 years! The only other thing I got into was other titles by NOW Comics that published Snart, and Groo the Wanderer, hearing it was also "cool". But I only thought it was "OK".

So in 1998, I had to learn a little HTML for a college project (It took me 13 years of night school to go from my after high school associates degree to a Bachelors). I decided I was going to put this new found knowledge to use to make a fan website. It was between the band The Psychedelic Furs or Ralph Snart! Many fans from all over the world contacted me, and after about a year, the writer/artist himself.

Much of my legwork from 1998-2003 or so can still be seen on the fan site run by the writer/artist. I gave him all my files when my stupid website provider went out of business, and I didn't feel like moving it. He had just brought Snart back as a web only comic at the time.

If you think you're going to come back a week or two later and add a spam link signature to your post, guess again.
