Website history

Below is a condensed version of what has happened at this site since it was first posted in June 1999 (with the most recent changes first):

  • December 12, 2013 Website moved to the new Blogger platform – redirects from the old site point to the new location. Photos uploaded only to Google, so they are easier to view and manage.
  • July 11, 2012. OK, I've finally updated some of the pictures...
  • June 13, 2010. OK, I've finally updated things after my Ph.D.
  • May 15, 2009 - The website is still in "coasting mode". When I am done my Ph.D., I'll try to update everything on the site.
  • September 13, 2007 - The website has been in "coasting mode" for a while during the time that I have been working on my Ph.D. Wendy is also back to school, so there has not been much time to do my website hobby. Will try to add a few new items as they happen.
  • March 19, 2004 - Completely redesigned the look of the site and transferred it to our new cable internet provider's server (Cogeco). Old (iSTAR) site pages were replaced by metatag links to the new location; removed some of the pages and revised the text on almost all others.
  • September 7, 2001 - major overhaul of the site - removed frames and changed the graphic appearance
  • December 6, 2000 - fixed some of the navigation problems experienced by Internet Explorer (it was my inexperience with Frames that caused it...)
  • December 4, 2000 - the site was completely revised with all the content updated ; our first attempt at frames was made (let us know what you think...) and hopefully this will make the site easier to use; All new family photos added, and an update was made to the Family tree to include Parker, and Adam now has his own page.
  • August 30, 2000 - Parker has arrived safely!
  • July 12, 2000 - We finally have a picture of Wendy on this site!
  • Mar. 29, 2000 - We are pregnant!! See our Baby page and send us your baby name suggestions.
  • Jan. 18, 2000 - Corrected a number of bugs on the pages; added the navigation buttons to the top of most of the pages; split the Stained Glass page into two, since some browsers were not able to download all of the images properly.
  • Aug.16, 1999 - First major update of the site - I got a new computer - what can I say! Added are: a new colour scheme (easier to see?), better navigation controls (I made some buttons...), a Recipe page, my Camera Collection, tons of Family Tree information, and a number of new pictures (including a new stained glass project)! Gone are those animated 'gifs' - especially that pulsing red line that originally reminded me of the Cylons from Battlestar Galactica (oops, I guess that one shows my age...).
  • June 23, 1999 - first attempt at posting a website to the 'net'. Lots of 'under construction' stuff. Sorry!
