A look at the past

Being a Sunday morning, and having been at the oldest house in Glasgow yesterday, i decided to take a nostalgic look at some of the sites i use today - see what they used to be like. Here are some of what i looked at. The entry page was nice - just two lines of text poining to the alpha site below. Worth checking out - i just wish they had been around since 1993 and i could have seen back to when i started with all this ....

Unfortunately i can't find out much about "Soliton Computing" - a company i started with a then friend back in 1992/1993 (doesn't seem to be indexed anywhere anymore :( ). We were running our business off the Univesity computers and they we're best pleased when they found out. In all honesty we were just creating web sites for aroudn 50 small businesses in Glasgow - the whole business part of it wasn't something we thought about. Shame. We just enjoyed hacking html, Perl and so on.
