History of the Project 64 Website - By Dean Thompson (04-05-2001) Chris Berneburg started the site in 1995 First Doc was the ISEPIC user's manual, completed during June 1995 On 29/08/1998 Chris Berneburg moved P64 to Geocities (lost some docs?) His post to comp.sys.cbm: "Hi Folks! Just thought I'd let you know that Project 64 will sometime be moving from Compuserve to Geocities. I ran out of space on Compuserve last week and have started moving some stuff over. The old URL is http://ourworld.compuserve.com/homepages/pcgeek/proj64.htm The new address should be something like http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/Park/5715/proj64/" On 21/09/1998 Chris Berneburg moved P64 to Hat Rack's Server His post to comp.sys.cbm: "Special thanks to Sir Rufus the Hat Rack (Hack Rat) etc for hosting Project 64! You can find us at http://project64.ml.org. Compuserve was getting to be too much of a pain and too expensive for me so I have changed ISPs. With the new location I have a lot more space. Again, thanks Hat and all you other folks who let me know what you thought about Geocities. :-)" Kenneth Crouch (Hat Rack) Took Over 15/11/1998 Chris's Post to c.s.cbm: "Hi Folks... Well, this has been difficult for me to do, but I have finally reached the conclusion that I no longer have the time to devote to Project 64 and have decided to give my beloved Project away. Many folks have helped me during the last three and a half years in my desire to serve you, people of the Commodore community, folks like the following: - - Peter Karlsson for helping me with TOK64, providing documents, and starting International Project 64 - - Frank Kontros for all his cheerfulness, *tons* of document support, and the two editions of the C64 User Guide (plus other texts) - - Ville Muikkula for his hard work for transcribing the C64 Programmer's Reference Guide - - Marko Makela for his support from FUNET - - Ray Carlson for answering hardware questions when I didn't have a clue and for providing Commodore Diagnostics - - Russell Reed, Dohi, Alex Slater, Adam Lorentzon, Paul David Doherty and his PreCAP project, Matthias Jaap, Klaus G. Bobacz, Adam Lorentzon, Evin Mulron, Eero J. Uusitalo, Martin Brunner, Dominic Holmes, Jeffrey Fabrizio, Domgrief, Vincent, Robert Schultz, Volker Detering, Damien John Gick, Ike Miller, Steve Varner, Kevin Smith, The Morbid Guy and his Atari collection, Fandango, Jeff Lodoen, and others, for all those documents! Most recently I would like to thank Sir Rufus the Hat Rack for hosting the new site when I ran out of room at Compuserve, and it is to him that I have decided to give Project 64. So please help him as you have helped me, and hopefully he can do a better job of managing the Project that I started, and help it to grow. Thanks!" Aparantly during the period that Ken had the site, may people submitted docs and they were never added to the site. Sadly, these docs have been lost. Dean Thompson took over on 03 Sept 1999 due to Ken's lack of time for the page. Dean combined it with his own docs page, Project Commodore, and changed the layout of the page. He also included a category for Amiga docs. Updates to the page became less frequent (because Dean incorrectly presumed that people were no longer interested due the dwindling amount of docs being sent in) until late 2000/early 2001 when members of the C= community decided (incorrectly!) that the page was no longer being maintained. Afar a flame war on comp.sys.cbm :) Dean resumed frequent work on the site and gave the page a new layout (which was actually in progress before the C= community made its move...). If you believe any of this info is wrong/biased :) or if something needs to be added please e-mail me.
