The history of the Zhodani Base Website
The Zhodani Base website started in 1994. It was hosted at a server at the electronics department of the Royal Institute of Technology.
At this time, the website was not yet called The Zhodani Base. It was called Mayday.
The contents at that time was not much more than the first part of the Trading on Pylkah adventure (including the Far Trader), and a blank subsector map.
In 1996 the Zhodani Base moved to a free hosting service called Passagen.
I found a web-address shortening service called base.org. (It is not working anymore.) There I registered zhodani.base.org, and started using The Zhodani Base as the name for the web-site.
Parts of this website can still be found using the Wayback Machine.
In 1999 the Zhodani Based moved to a web host called FS Data. It was quite expensive, but it allowed me to use scripts. A few popular script I made were the random subsector generator, the web-based galactic maps and the LBB Front Cover Generator.
In 2008 the Zhodani Base started using the WordPress blogging software. (At my personal blog berka.se I started using WordPress 2005) A few posts from an earlier WebBoard was recovered and included in the Blog. The oldest post recovered is from 1999.
A few recent highlights:
In 2009, the first Zhodani Base 76 Patrons Writing Contest was held. The winner was Raz, with Universal Health Care.
In 2011, the first Zhodani Base Awards was held. (Or actually, on the first day of 2012 so that everything published for Traveller in 2011 would be considered.)
In 2017, I started writing the Adventures of the Starship Notorious.
Moving to a new domain and web host:
In 2018, after almost 20 years at the web host FS Data (and a total cost of $ 5,500) I decided to move. FS Data doesn’t provide a good and modern service any longer, and the price is too high. I moved to Inleed that is both cheaper and more modern. I also got new domain for the Zhodani Base: zhodani.space.
