When the Blender website was a baby

Since I “discovered” the Internet Wayback Machine (usefull if a site is down, or just consider Google In Cache), I wondered how the Blender website looked when it was in it’s infant shoes.
Well, like this:


Do you see similarities or funny things?

…lol. A nice trip around memory lane that what it is for sure.

version 2.25?! The version numbers don’t change much over the years, do they.

If you want to see even older stuff, check out www.blender.nl. I don’t know if it’s archived, but that was the official site for a long time before blender3d.org existed.

The old site is still available.

PlantPerson, blender.nl redirects at blender.org ^^

Back in the olden days it was its own site, and archive.org may still have pages from that somewhere.

The archives N3ON posted contain some of the older .nl stuff, but I remember an even earlier version.

I started way back in 1999, so I’ve been at it since some of our youngest members were in diapers. How about that, guys? Some of you young whippersnappers don’t even know what it was like before the internet! Pesky kids!

Yea, you spoiled, freckled, overweight and annoying little twats with no regard for spelling and grammar, you should all be banned on the spot.

One would think that with such a proclamation you would be quick to dissociate yourself from that group by being less obnoxious and by paying more attention to your grammar. :spin:

Edit: Of course, I may have left my sarcasm detector someplace and forgotten it.

When has my grammar ever been bad?
