- December 21, 1997. My
site now has its own domain name and dedicated URL: www.foreskin.denver.co.us. If you're reading this, you've obviously
- December 3, 1997. As
you can see if you're a frequent visitor, the site has
undergone a bit of a facelift. I hope you enjoy it. But
the facelift is not just skin-deep; it's
probably the most significant update I've made to the
site since I launched it. Here's an overview of the
- Added a new commentary section
where I'll feature regular editorial articles.
- Tamed the content of some
pages to make the site more focused on information
than opinion (the opinions will be going
in to the commentary section instead).
- Streamlined the look of the
main restore page.
- Streamlined the header of all
pages, and worked to make them consistent.
- Reformatted much of the
content, especially sections that contain
notices, to make the pages more visually
- Corrected countless spelling
and gramatical errors throughout the entire site.
- Added miscellaneous new
features, such as next page / previous page icons
in the t-tape and strap construction information
so you can follow them in sequence.
- Apologies to other web masters
who have linked to pages here, but many documents
have been renamed for consistency.
- November 17, 1997. I
added several more diary links to the resources page. These diaries are a terrific way to
find out more about how restoration has worked for
others, and what their trials and tribulations have been.
- November 17, 1997. I
am actively looking for a new host ISP for this web site.
My ISP has notified me that I may need to
transition the site soon after the first of the year, and
I want to make sure I have an alternative available. (In
the event this is not needed afterall, I would still like
to establish a mirror site.) As this site is designed for
dissemination of educational information, and I do not
receive compensation for it, any new host must be willing
to host the site at no cost, and to deal with its modest
traffic (see below). As is the case now, I am happy to
place a small advertisement on the opening page of this
site for the host. Anyone willing to host the site must
have some reasonable expectation of being a going concern
(i.e., staying in business for the foreseeable future).
Support for Microsoft FrontPage is required. If you can
help, and you are the owner / operator of an ISP
and are not merely an individual or
other non-ISP web site, please contact me.
- Early November, 1997. Our
Internet service provider, TDE
Internet of Denver,
Colorado, continued to report that Derrick Townsend's
Foreskin Restoration Site is one of the busiest, most
popular sites they host. Our site accounts for over 3
Gigabytes of data transferred each month at this point;
with several hundred thousand "hits" on a
monthly basis. We have made special arrangements with TDE
to continue operating this site, so it is only through
their incredible, open-minded generosity that this site
is available to you. If you are located in the greater
Denver area, please consider calling them at (303)
455-4252 for your personal or business Internet needs.
At the very least, you might consider dropping them an
e-mail message to thank them for making the bandwidth and
storage space for this site possible; send such e-mail to
firstname.lastname@example.org and it'll get the person in charge.
