VICNET and www.cifhs.com

I was using the Internet Archive Wayback Machine for some research and thought I would see if the VICNET version of my site www.cifhs.com was there. I was amazed to find the earliest version was dated 2004 and the last version on VICNET dated 2012 when VICNET was phased out and I moved and renamed the site. I downloaded the 2004 and one of the 2012 versions to keep for history. It was quite a surprise to see that some 14 years has passed since its inception.
