This site is made and maintained by me, Magnus Wedberg, in my spare time. It has been scheduled for immediate release since 1995, and has been redesigned from the ground up a couple of times since then. Unfortunately, the site design has never been filled with content.
In 98 or so I gave up and released what was done then, namely the original 9000 manual, without pictures. That has been the only content on 9000.org for a while.
In fall 2001, when I returned from a longer vacation, I found myself with lots of spare time -- I had finished all projects before I left and simply had nothing to do. The thought struck me: why not finish this project? After all, it was because of it that I registered the 9000.org domain... and so, it was redesigned again (for the fifth time, I think) and this time it was actually finished. But in the summer of 2003 (I move slowly indeed).
My intention for this site is for it to work with Netscape 4 (this version is notoriously buggy, however) and above, Internet Explorer 5 and above, Opera 6 and above, Safari, and Mozilla-based browsers such as Firefox. In addition to those, the text version does work with Lynx and earlier Netscape, IE and Opera versions. Others are untested, although it should work with pretty much anything in text mode. Somewhat uncommonly, the best performance and feature completeness comes from Opera 7+, with Mozilla as a distant second.
If you have questions, comments or even contributions to the site, contact me! I would be delighted to hear from you!
