Recap of past

The new owner hasn’t yet decided what to do with this website, and until that is figured out, it’s showing some of the past content that was here, before the website was “let go”, allowed to expire.

Levi Levi
Looks like someone bought this domain in 2013, and used it for a CSS ( Cascading Style Sheets for webpages) tutorial, and a lot of links and ads, till March 2014. Then it was “let go” expired again.

Cascading Style Sheets

I’ve stripped out the ads and links, and the leftover content on CSS tutorial topics is on these two pages. CSS tutorial page 1, CSS tutorial page 2. If you came here via a search engine seeking webpage styling tips, click those links.

What was before?, sleep-related hopefully?

Levi Levi
Way way back, from 1999 to 2011, it was the Canadian Sleep Society website.

I find it interesting that “dot T.O.” websites were available so far back. It’s for the country of Tonga.

Levi Levi
But wait, there’s more. In 2011, the css.to website was abandoned without hosting, and a new website, www.canadiansleepsociety.ca arose instead.

Boredom alert. Mission statement. (no offense intended).


 
 

Their Mission Statement:

The Society has established the following objectives:

  • To help consolidate and advance sleep research in Canada.
