The original all about beards site: January 17, 1996 — October 31, 2008.
What is today the “all about beards” site that resides here at beards.org appeared initially at the address http://members.aol.com/beardguy/ on the 17th of January 1996. On the 20th of January of 2005, the all-new all about beards site made its debut at its current http://beards.org address. The old site was hosted on web space allocated to AOL members.
When the updated version of all about beards opened at beards.org, I left the original up as a legacy site with pointers to the current site. Today, AOL shut down all of its members’ sites, including the all about beards legacy site. So I am forced to bid a sentimental, fond farewell to the online presence of the early form of all about beards. Rest assured, however, that all about beards will continue — stronger than ever — at beards.org: building the future by honoring the past.
I also have some housekeeping to do. Actually, I never got completely weaned off of the old site, with a few features still residing there. I have some extra work to do now to migrate those features here.
