Version 3 of the RKIL Site


The first RKIL site in 1996 to advantage of our new high speed ISDN line with a 56k connection to the Internet, and made use of a Macintosh SE running AUX, Apple's first version of UNIX. The site had half a dozen pages, no way of tracking, was tough to update, and was a miracle in technology. That was then.

In 1998, the site was upgraded to take advantage of updates to Lotus Notes that allowed us to publish data bases to the web. With the use of embedded HTML, Javascript and other Web technologies the site could be updated easily and quickly. The site was hosted one of RKIL's Domino servers, and connected to the Internet with a 1Mb DSL connection. The Notes based site lasted all they way to 2009 with a few face lifts along the way.

In 2009, the site was migrated to to take advantage of faster connections with remote hosting and the ability to link to social media. The transfer was relatively painless, and we are hoping that the new features will make the site more interesting. Your feedback is always welcome.
