> Anyone else still around from circa 1997?
Alas, I never kept logs of IRC chats (I was a quiet infrequent lurker anyway), and most of the links on my website now point to 20 year old dead websites 😢 (with the rare exception of Zophar's Domain), but 1998/1999 is when I was most active in writing documentation and utilities. I can't recommend anyone read them now, despite them still being on this site, because I wrote many when I was 17/18, and the grammar shows 😅; and according to my change log, I started 1998-08-05 working on the DOS utility BgMapper to read ZSNES savestates and export the graphics, but that's completely obviated by now 😋. I remember checking Zophar's Domain daily in college, and vaguely the names of other websites I enjoyed perusing (Damaged Cybernetics, Archaic Ruins). Thankfully the Internet Archive snagged many of these websites for future generations. I think RomHacking.net used to be .com too? (because the current RomHacking.com seems to be something else 🤔)
