The World's most Low-Key Website

No animated gifs, no frames, tables, fancy colors or snazzy graphics. But we do offer something different: content. If you are a techie, check out the Modern Practice of the Electric Telegraph, an accurate transcription of an 1870s era book on telegraphy (the original serial interface).

If you are a history buff, try the Life of William B. Ide, one account of how California came to be a part of the United States. Again, this book is more than 100 years old.

The newest addition to content is a 1904 home medical book, Medicology. Read about a world where communicable diseases like Cholera and Typhoid Fever raged, where diabetes was a death sentence, and where mercury was used for almost anything, even as a laxative.

Family Album

One of the earliest pictures I put on the Web, using an image map to identify items on the picture. Pretty cutting edge for the 1990's! It's grainy because it started out life as a 256 color GIF, before browsers could render JPG files.
