A New Look For An Old Page
By Bill Mills - March 2006
Every so often we roll through a part of WARPIG and stop and think, “Wow, that page has been there a long time. Come to think of it, that page is probably older than some of the people reading it.” That’s the thing about a site that just keeps on growing, the rootstock can have some serious age.
The Paintguns page, a sub-page from the technical page dates back to WARPIG’s birth as a web site hosted on a desktop computer at a university in 1993.
Many of the documents linked on that page go back even further, from before WARPIG’s birth to its gestation as a collection of paintball information on an FTP site (File Transfer Protocol – a common way information was hosted and exchanged before the world wide web and HTTP caught on.)
In 1995, shortly after WARPIG’s founder, Steve Mitchell turned the project over to its current caretakers, it was relocated to its current address – WARPIG.com.
Over the years, the paintguns page has undergone minor formatting changes, most of which merely involved changes to the pages header or addition of international language translations.
Now, in 2006, the paintguns page is getting a brand new layout. It is now split into multiple pages, with summary information on each of the listed paintguns, as well as links to related articles both on WARPIG.com and elsewhere on the Internet.
Access to the new paintguns directory works as before, individual paintguns are listed alphabetically on the left hand column of the WARPIG.com Technical page with links to the appropriate pages in the directory.
It’s the same growing body of information that has been accumulating for the past dozen years and then some, but with a newer, easier to navigate and better updated way to find it.
