A long time ago, in a state not too far from California, a friend of mine created a website devoted to The Cure's concerts. Then he moved and he needed a new place to host his website. That's were I came in. I had an old '386 computer that I was experimenting with that had a "free" full time internet connection. Sure I can run a web server on it. So this was around the Fall 1996 or so. Yeah, just after the '96 tour I think. For about two years it operated without a domain name, just using the IP address of 220.127.116.11.
In 1998 I registered the name "staticwhitesound.com" that I thought I'd use for a sound company I was starting. (Have you figured yet that I am an avid Cure fan too?) So the the site became www.staticwhitesound.com/ szumsteg /cure1.htm. That worked pretty well. But then a couple years later I wondered: is cureconcerts.com available? Sure enough it was, so I grabbed it. But by then the original site was firmly entrenched in all the search engines. Instead of moving it, I just put a forwarding link on the new domain name.
But this site isn't just a link to Scott's site. There a a few other great Cure related reference sites out there, so I added some links to those. And I started documenting some of my experiences for some guys who were putting together a book.
So now, some six years later, the old '386 is out of service and replaced with an 8 year old Dell '486. And the internet connection is still free...
