I bought the PGabor.com domain exactly 21 years ago today and launched the first version of the site two weeks later. Here is a quick summary of how the site has changed over the years:
The first version was a hand-coded HTML, with five major sections. The screenshots below, inlcuding this from May 2000, were saved from the Wayback Machine which cut off the top.
A year later I built, edited, and provided all the content for “Index.California”, a local, California edition of Index.hu, a Hungarian portal. So all the “I.CA” notes on the August 7, 2003 screenshot below refer to articles I wrote for that, now gone, website.
