First light for this web site occurred on July 4, 1995, on sff.net. It was hand-coded in HTML 2.0. Later versions were composed in Microsoft Front Page and Dreamweaver. Satellite sites such as the St. Joe’s Salt Lick and A Place Called Yorkship were hosted on comcast.net Personal Web Pages. In May 2009 the site moved to its own domain, alternities.com, hosted at GoDaddy. A Place Called Yorkship received its own domain at that time as well. In May 2016 the entire site was ported to WordPress.
