The History of Torrey's Web Site and Ape Camp

On August 29, 1995, I signed up for an account with Exec-PC out of Milwaukee. On August 30, 1995, with the help of Jim Dockter, I published my first page on the web at the address of "www.execpc.com/~torrey/". I continued adding pages and features to the web site.

Then on July 31, 2002, CoreComm, the current owner of Exec-PC, changed the "www" in my web address to "my". Everything still worked, but I was annoyed by this arbitrary change. I decided it was time to move the site to a domain that I controlled. On September 7, 2002 I set up an account with ICDSOFT to host the domain of www.apecamp.com. I had registered the apecamp.com domain a few weeks before. I've always liked camping and of course anything having to do with primates is always cool. Plus, a camp is a place, just as a web site is a place. Ape Camp really seems like the right name for this web site.

As I moved each page, I improved the code and content of each file. This of course took longer, but helped Ape Camp get started on the right foot. I have completed the move from Exec-PC and now plan to focus my efforts on pushing Ape Camp into the furture.

History keeps rolling forward; I last updated my web site on November 27, 2006. Enjoy it and visit often!
