Old Site Archive

 

Over the years I have created, designed, developed, maintained and otherwise worked on dozens of different web sites. Some were owned by others or managed for employers but unfortunately many of the personal ones are lost forever. In an effort to preserve some of what I created I have posted what I still have available here. These sites are not meant to be functional but more of a museum to sites that once where.

Camneerg – One of the first web sites I ever built. The site was more a testament to the hardware on which it was running rather than any sort of information exchange. Camneerg the machine, as well as the other systems and projects described within its pages have either ceased functioning, were dismantled, or given up on long ago.

Whacked – (No files are posted, only the web pages have been posted. I’d probably go to jail if some of these files where made available today.) The web site for the Whacked Mac Archives was used to help promote the FTP site. It is no longer maintained and contains none of the files referenced within its pages. But you can get a good idea from these lists what software was available for old Mac OS 7, 8 and 9 machines

HNN – The Hacker News Network was a daily updated web site that contained news and views relating to the hacker community. Unfortunately due to copyright laws (No, I don’t own what I created) only one page of the site is presented here as an example under the fair use provisions of the copyright law. As a result of only hosting one page most of the links will not work. The page that is displayed is June 16, 2000, which was the last day that I updated the news to the site. I recently reacquired the domain hackernews.com. Not sure if that means I now own the old content or not, either way I don’t have the time or space to put all the old stuff back online.

UPDATE: Well I have the space and I found the time. All the old files are back online without all the pretty graphics, just the news. I figure the files don’t do anyone any good wasting away on my hard drive. So if you want to check out the news from any day between September 10, 1998 and March 30, 2000 just click on one of those links and then change the date in the URL to the day you are looking for. More info about the archive here.

Hacker Intel – Several years after HNN was taken down I was still getting requests to start another site. I finally relented and started Hacker Intel. Response was pretty abysmal. After six months it was averaging only 400 unique visitors per day. I could no longer justify the time required to keep the site up to date for so few visitors so on June 9, 2004 it was taken off line.
