This site was first published on 10 April, 1997 and has been undergoing testing and development ever since!
The first form was a simple "mailto;" comments form on 15 April, 1997. The first form with CGI scripting was also our comments form on 20 April, 1997. Other forms with CGI scripts and Java Script error checking were implemented 27 April, 1997, (we are still working on forms.) The Pirates of the Mississippi Chapter of 10-10 international Net, Inc was the first Chapter to allow prosepctive members to Join on line or to allow members to Upgrade on line (April 29, 1997.)
In June of 1997, we included a Java Script menu function on all pages. We published pages with Java Scripts for special effects and banners 21 August, 1997, on 28 August, 1997 we added the ability to download text versions of many of our pages or forms and on 24 September, 1997 we added frames and a navigation bar to the site.. We are currently working on "pop up help" boxes for several of the forms.
The site was chosen as a Quality Site on May 10, 1997 and as a GeoCities Featured Page on August 25, 1997. (Thanks!)
