I’ve been working with Brooklyn Web Developers on my site, and you’ll see lots of new images in the coming weeks. There’s going to be a transition period while I get the old photos rescanned and uploaded.
I put modern-ruins.com up in 1995, and it’s a lot like an old house where new extensions were added on. I wrote it using simpletext, and there were hundreds of pages. Some of the images were tiny because back in 1995, we were all on slow modems. It was an early recipient of weekly Yahoo “Cool Site” award.
