I keep this history more or less for my own purposes, hope you enjoy it, even if there's some German in it.

Sometime in August 1996 I received a CD-Rom from CompuServe with their home-page publisher. What first seemed to be just a bit of playing around over the time evolved into a serious project. I did the first uploads sometime in September (trying to master HTML-language), and started recording what I added at the beginning of October.

She has the right to do so, and I sadly accept this.
