Techy stuff about this site Pombenet first went live in 1995,when our lab was at the Salk Institute in La Jolla, CA. Susan wrote the HTML code by hand. Between 1995-2004, about 120,000 visitors came by. That year, coincident with the Forsburg Lab moving to USC in Los Angeles, we modestly redesigned the look of the site. Under the hood, we went to cascading style sheets -- again, coding all by hand. This is the first extensive rewriting of content of this site since we started, and since Susan no longer cares to code HTML by hand, she did it using the Mac-specific software Rapidweaver and various plugins. The current counter tracks visits only since 2004; add the 120,000 from 1993-2004, showing a total of over 500,000 served. That's a lotta pombe!
