31.000 visits on ShamWerks.com !

31.000 visitors got lost down here!

Well, OK, obviously 31.000 visitors over a 8 years period (since the beginning of this site), this is far from a great performance... icone smiley wink

However, since the site moved on ShamWerks.com, the number of visitors keeps growing... 1.000 visits in just a little bit more than a month! Many thanks to all of you for your interest!

For those who missed it, ShamWerks has an RSS feed, for a few days!

Stay tuned, many surprises will come within the next weeks...

PS: Many thanks Oliv' for your postcard which I scanned this pin-up from... Very sixtes, and coming directly from Moorea!

Sham is back online : v4.0!



Welcome !



The last real update of my site was made in late 2003... Since then, no real update happened on Da Sham's Webpage. Due to personal and professional issues, other priorities... And some laziness, I must admit!icone smiley wink
But that's over, and the site changes its name!
Let's do some online archeology :

  • My first steps on the Web occur in '96 with a site named "Good Morning Net'naaaaam", hosted by Geocities... Which disappeared a long time ago, which is all but a big loss, believe me. (Edit 2016-05-23 : Actually, there's still a trace of it at Archive.org!)
  • October 1998, I give birth to "Da Sham's Webpage", the v1.0 being hosted at Citeweb, until late 1999.
  • January 1st 2001 appears the v2.0, on a new hosting site ; Free (God bless the freebox). The V.3.0 will appear on June 2003...
  • 2006, 10 years after my first appearance online (er... I'm getting old!), here is the v4.0, and to celebrate this event, it even has it's own domain name : welcome on ShamWerks.com!

Gosh... 10 years online, sounds scary no?? icone smiley laugh
This new version is made to be more dynamic, interactive... The ADSL having killed the RTC (56K R.I.P...), I can afford some heavier graphic content, nicer pictures ; 800x600 screens being rare today, I leave the old 760px wide design for 977px : sorry for the webdesign's purists, it was way to tight! icone smiley wink

Technically, the site has been developed in PHP over a MySQL database... No typepad, no WordPress, no DotClear, everything has been done by hand! It may look like a strange choice, but it gives me more control and flexibility on what I'm doing, playing with some technologies (URL rewriting, GD, RSS, etc.)... Yes, being software developer helps a lot. icone smiley wink

There's many more to come soon : stay tuned!

30.000 Visits!

30.000 visitors got lost on this site since 1998...

Ok, gotta admit that this is not a fantastic score over a 8 years period, compared to some "trendy" blogs... But thank you anyway for your visits, and as required by the "online tradition", here is a pin-up to celebrate the event...



This is Betty Jo Boals, Miss August 1949 of Hot Rod Magazine, presenting a magneto.... She was 19 years old by then, so she is... 76 today! icone smiley wink

Thanks again for your visits!
