Just some stuff I saved. Maybe you'll find some of this interesting...
Note: Some links, particullarly to Ectozone.com, may no longer function. They have been left "broken" for historical accuracy Similarly, there may be pictures that do not show up because they have been deleted since the pages involved were new.
The Ectozone was first hosted by Angelfire from 2003-2007; the old pages are still there, if you feel like taking a look!
If you ever wanted to see the junk that used to be on the front page, now you can.

The original Digibusters page. I was originally going to split the site between Ghostbusters and Digimon (thus the name "Digibusters"), with the Ectozone being the Ghostbuster section, and the Digimon section to be named "Digital Nexus". I abandoned the idea and the whole site evolved into the Ectozone as we know it today. But eventually, I'd come back to the Digimon idea to create this
Ghostbusters Omnibus Timeline: May 13, 2003
Salvaged from an old backup, for historical purposes, the version of the Timeline as a first posted it. A lot of stuff got taken out quickly, including some very different directions for the original Ghostbusters post-EGB compared to the collaborative GBI/GBOT fanon. The Timeline was first posted as one massive page.

Ectozone Index: October 26, 2003
A look at the home page after I'd started to divide it, and experimented with button images. By now the Ectozone has taken over the prime index page, and it's officially (as of October 6, 2003) "Ectozone.com".
Ghostbusters Omnibus Timeline: 88MPH Studios
A little experiment I did pruning the Timeline just for the 88MPH series. A lot of it is already apocryphal (ie everybody would have to be at least five years older by the mini-series) but it was fun diversion.
Ectozone Index: December 29, 2003
The first version of the page with the Ghostbusters Legion illustration; this early on, it was in pencil colors. It wasn't until May 2004 that it was computer colored.

The first homepage of "Ectozone 3.0", evolving the look of the site even further with the use of Cascading Stylesheets. The CSS code is embedded in this page, so even if the look changes again, it'll still be an accurate recreation.
