This is an archive of the site's development, for anyone who gives a damn.

When I first started this site, I used Sausage Software's Hotdog as my HTML editor, due to the fact that it wasn't some stupid-ass p&c editor like the unusable Front Page by Microslop. About half-way through to the point where the site is at the time I'm typing this, I switched to an even better editor, one that smokes Hotdog like a hand-rolled cuban. It's called Homesite, by Allaire. It's way smaller than Hotdog, with more flexibility and automation of repetitive commands. Check it out! And no, this isn't a commercial, I just really like the program. All image manipulation is done using the excellent Paint Shop Pro, by JASC Software. It's the smallest, fastest and most powerful image editor on the market, imo. The game snapshots you see littered about are taken from various emulators, such as MAME (arcade games), PC Atari (Atari VCS), CCS64 (Commodore 64), ADAMem (Coleco ADAM/ColecoVision), Reagle Beagle (Atari 5200 Supersystem), V7800 (Atari 7800 Prosystem), the Intellivision EmuPacks from the Blue Sky Rangers (Mattel Intellivision), O2EM (Magnavox Odyssey2), CINEMU (Cinematronics arcade games), AppleWin (Apple II), among others I'll probably be mentioning later. Most of these can be found from my host site, the excellent Emulators Unlimited.
