WHAT WAS NEW ON STRAWBS WEB
MAR 1998 to MAY 2002

This is a record of what was added to the site between March 1998 and April 2002. The site was revamped in May 2002, in September 2005 and most recently in Summer 2015 to make the site a non-framed site.

For early additions to the site between May 2002 and August 2005 see What Was New - May 2002 to August 2005 which covers the period from the first major revamp to the second.

NBB. The links on this page and on What Was New - May 2002 to August 2005 may not work properly as they have not been revised yet to the frame-free model.

This is a record of what was added to the netdirect site:

  • from its startup on netdirect (9 Mar 98) up to the launch of the new site design at end April 2000;
  • from the go live date of the new design (April 2000) to the revamp on 6 May 2002


    Nothing much added between March 2002 and launch of new site May 2002
