Title: Old RON site partial archive
Post by: pell on 29 Apr 2016, 17:36
For anyone interested, the Internet Archive Wayback Machine has several snapshots of the old Reality On The Norm site that used to be hosted at Home of the Underdogs.
Full Archive (https://web.archive.org/web/20020701000000*/http://ron.the-underdogs.org/)

The earliest snapshot is from March 20, 2002:

Here's one from April 10, 2004 with links to "Latest 10 posts on the forum..." which were also preserved:

Unfortunately, although the links to the forum home pages have been archived for the few dates I've tried, the subforums and individual posts seem to be lost. So far I've only found posts that have been linked from the main site home page.

There is actually an even earlier snapshot, from May 2001, back when RoN was a subsite of AdventureDeveloper.com:

Wow, that looks so... weird. 8-0
It also looks old, but mostly weird.

It would have been a nice blast from the past, had I heard of RoN back then... or even had the internet back then. (laugh)

Thanks for showing that. :-D

"Feb. 15th, 8 am - The end of the week's rolling around, so Yahtzee should hopefully have the first RON game done soon — Bionic Bill"

That is old, isn't it. I wasn't around back then. I first became aware of Reality on the Norm in April 2004, I believe.

The one from 2004 is the first version I wrote after discovering RON and offering to update their website. I even included additional themes in the bottom bar. If you click on 'Original RON' it makes it look like the 2001 site. Weird to see it again after all this time - I don;t think I even have the source files any more.
