Please.. Please.. bare with me here.. this site was designed and built back in 1996 (24 years ago)
by one guy (me
) using a text editor (PFEdit), PaintShop
Pro (v4 & v5) and the HTML technology of the day. Way back in 1996, there was just Perl & CGI running on Apache Web Servers.
Rails, MySQL database and a whole raft of other technologies did not exist yet.
So, I looked around and found a brand new (in 1996), emerging technology called 'WebBase(tm)
'. WebBase was/is a fully integrated,
top down, web scripting and server environment that included database and SMTP connectivity. Consequently, the whole site was build
around and continues to run on WebBase(tm)
(a 16 bit program written in Smalltalk
essentially by one guy, George Barilla (Arizona)).
The typical monitor of the day was 800 pixels. Today this technology is woefully outdated and up against the newer sites, looks
quite amateurish. But it would be just too expensive to rewrite this site using 2020 cutting edge technologies.
As long as it continues to do the basic job it was designed to do, the site is going to remain as is for the time being. I
would entertain offers to buy the site if there is anyone out there who wants a great google website page ranking (PR) and search listing placements
(is someone looking for me),
). If you want to see those newer
technologies, please visit my other websites via InQuest LLC
