HISTORY

Amiga Music Collection (originally Amiga 500 Music Collection) has been online now for about five or so years, and with current outlook about three years. When I first created this "new" outlook, the code didn't really use or follow any certain specifications, it was mostly a total mix of my self-learned current web page designing knowledge with a mix of HTML 4.x specifications and god knows what. Now, after many years, inspired by this project, I have:

  • updated code to be fully XHTML 1.1 compatible and verified it (same goes for CSS)
  • tested that the pages work both with Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox
  • re-write most parts of text again (still not perfect but a bit closer to it..)
  • updated and removed dead links, tested that all the files can be downloaded
  • optimized the code "lighter", removing some unnecessary things and removing *many* unnecessary tables..
  • updated the graphics a bit, including a new logo and so on.

GENERAL

The site complies with XHTML 1.1 and CSS 2.0. JavaScript is used to change the background on the menu (when mouse is dragged over some menu link, background color changes from yellow to red). Recommended resolution to use is 800x600 or better. Guestbook and search is provided by Tripod Lycos, and the forum by BoardHost.

The site is designed to be viewed and used with Internet Explorer 6.0, but it is also tested to fully work with Mozilla Firefox 1.0.

FILENAMES AND SIZES

All the files of the site are originally located under the address http://amigamusic.tripod.com/. These pages however are temporarily located at http://kotisivu.mtv3.fi/applepds/wpd/, because LycosTripod adds tons of scripts & pop-ups to the pages..

Filenames and folders are saved either in upper/lowercase, and extensions in lowercase. Spaces are replaced with _ (underscore). Downloadable music files are compressed in zip format.
