Here are some miscellaneous notes about how this site is run. These are the things you need to consider before asking for a site to be archived here.


Censorship will not censor any information or web pages with the exception of:

  • Advertising is not allowed on any hosted website, including, but not limited to, banner ads, pop-ups, pop-unders, or Flash animations. You wanna make money? Pay for your hosting. Note that vintage, computer-related ads, as appropriate, are welcome in a historical context.
  • No adult material is allowed, except as appropriate in a historical context.
  • All content must be related to computer history, including, but not limited to, specific vintage computers, computer companies, computing pioneers, early personal experiences, and so on.
  • Copyrighted materials must either have approval from the copyright owners or it must be shown that an attempt to contact the copyright owners was made in good faith and that the owner no longer exists or was not found.
  • All web pages must be the original work or legal property of the person requesting hosting, or the person hosting must have written permission from the legal copyright holder.

All web pages, content, and copyrights remain the property of their original owners. By agreeing to host your site here, is given a non-exclusive right to permanently archive all posted information for historical preservation only.

Design will not require the use of or conformity to any particular layout, interface, color scheme or other design, functional, or other element. Neither will any advertising, links, or other feature be required to be added to any web site. will not frame any website or information.

No fees will ever be charged for hosting a web site at Donations are accepted to offset the cost of hosting, but are not required.

Termination reserves the right to terminate hosting of any web site or collection of information at any time for any reason. Realistically, however, the only reasons a hosted web site would be removed would be:

  • Blatant disregard for prohibited content (See Censorship above).
  • Copyright violations.
  • Excessive bandwith usage (See note below).
  • Excessive disk usage (See note below).
  • Need to close the entire site due to financial hardship.
  • Acts of Dog (See note below).
Bandwith Note: In the case where a hosted site becomes so popular that my hosting costs go through the roof, I might have to take the site offline, at least temporarily. I would certainly try to find another solution, but it is possible that the only solution would be to remove it, making it available by request only.

Disk Space Note: If the number of sites hosted begins to overflow the amount of disk space I can afford, I may need to take some sites offline temporarily. They would always be available by request, of course. Again, this is not an ideal solution, but it is possible that it may happen.

Acts of Dog: Anything which we have no control over, such as ISP's suddenly and completely disappearing (right after cashing my check for a year's hosting), servers crashing, internet being outlawed, etc. If something like that happens, all I can say is: I didn't do it!

A site will never be removed because of any of these reasons:

  • Disagreement between the web site owner and the owner of
  • Personal distaste for web design/layout/color scheme.
  • Personal distaste for the subject matter (as long as it is computer history-related.)
