A little history
of this web site and links to archives.
The match is
This poi site was first created using
the software package "Front page" by Microsoft®. It went
under the url of www.juggling.co.nz as that was a url I had purchased
earlier. The site was uploaded and went live on 26th October 1999.
Originally used the built-in
button making functions of the "Front page" program.
first poi discussion board
This poi discussion board went live
on 7th February 2000 and was used until 12th December 2000.
It was set up on a microsoft
server using the built in "Front page" server discussion board.
It did the job quite well in the beginning. And so the site grew to the
extend that this type of discussion board was no longer suitable.
The page was getting too long
and took ages to download using a slow connection. The search button funnily
enough never worked but being created by Microsoft it probably was never
You can visit the old discussion
board however not all the buttons will work as we are now on a Linux server
and have no microsoft extension things.
OMG: I can not believe I made
this Flash Object.
I have hidden it here in the basement just as a fun reminder.
Big changes for
The web site had
become very "piece meal" with many modules spread across 4 different
servers and operating systems and thus unable to talk to each other. In
November of 2003 it was decided to start again from the ground up to develop
a new totally integrated web site with one login giving access to all
features. A new look with many features as suggested by users and customers.
Drop down menus
are finally compatible with most browsers. Six months of hard work and
the new site is ready for all to see in May 2004.
More changes for
Well those drop down menus have become a hassle
. They were meant to be all browser compatable however they are not. So we have removed those put in new simple
HTML navigation and added in a google search button at the top of the pages because Google is far better than our own
search tool. More little improvements here and there to make things run a bit more smoothly and an imporved HELP
page. To save on bandwidth we are again hosting more video and picture files on a seperate US server.

We have moved away
from the dark grey colours and gone for something a bit more brighter.
Site looks more consistant across all areas. Logo man is no-longer so
12th May 2008
We have gone more curvy. Overhauled the shop to include many new functions and broken down the main page
to direct visitors into the three main areas of the site, Community, Lessons, and Shop.
