The front page

Some time around 1994 (maybe earlier?, I was still using Mosaic...) or so I put up my first web page. It was on Hollicom, the first real ISP available in Kokomo, IN. It was a pretty basic page, at first it was a single file, a huge stream of information, with just a few in-line images, and an index at the top.

It slowly evolved to what you see. The most recent incarnation (Started August 2005, still in use) uses CSS (Cascading Style Sheets). While I was at it, I cleaned up the HTML in the 100 or so .shtml files that make up this site. It took a while.

Most of the motorcycle articles were written in 1993 through 1996.

The woodworking articles started after that.

Then I had some marital problems and an illness, and didn't work on the page for a few years.

In 2005, I wrote some (non-fictional) stories, and updated the HTML.

In 2006, there were a few minor updates, now, in 2007/2008 I'm making a few minor layout changes, adding a few stories, etc.

In 2008, I briefly tried a blog like format for this front page, but I found that I didn't have enough material, and I wasn't updating it very often.
