Updates and news (Latest news first)
March 9, 2007 Did some house-cleaning. Removed links to a lot of old stuff. Maybe it's time to renew this place?
September 9, 2004 I added a blog, courtesy of blogger.com.
March 16, 2003 6 new postcards.
March 6, 2004 I've installed a forum for discussion. I hope to get some members that will talk about synaesthesia or boring postcards!
September 29, 2002 I updated the typography section with some information about fonts I've made for Palm handhelds. I also added a couple of new photos to my photo section.
September 28, 2002 Did some redesigning and cleaning up. Removed the scrolling menu on the start page.
September 25, 2002 I have bought a new and fast scanner (Canon D1250U2 using USB 2.0 interface) so I have finally scanned a bunch of all the postcards I have had lying here. 11 postcards this time.
July 27, 2002 The old adress www.typography.nu, has ceased to exist. This site is only accessible through www.retroglobe.com. It was four great years we had, typography.nu and I. May it rest in peace and not be exploited.
May 12, 2002 2 new postcards.
Febuary 9, 2002 12 new postcards.
January 20, 2002 Now on every postcard page (with single postcards, not thumbnail pages) you can rate the postcard as "boring" or "not very boring"!
January 6, 2002 Some time ago I bought a digital camera (Canon Digital Ixus V). I thought it was time to put some of the photos on this site. It's available here. At the moment there are only 6 photos.
December 4, 2001 I have added 15 new postcards. The database consists of 427 postcards right now.
November 25, 2001 The start page has a new menu, and I have done some re-designing.
October 29, 2001 The site has a new domain name: www.retroglobe.com.
October 13, 2001 Nine new postcards.
September 6, 2001 I have recieved many requests for an search function for the postcards. I added it today and along with that the ability to sort the postcards alphabetically.
September 5, 2001 The site got over 3000 visitors today! Thanks to buzz.bazooka.se.
August 28, 2001 With this latest update of 16 postcards the database now holds 403 boring cards!
August 25, 2001 Nine postcards were added to the gallery today.
March 23, 2001 Three new postcards.
March 17, 2001 Made it easier to send postcards (and more obvious that it can be done...).
February 24, 2001 I have totally redesigned the entire site and rebuilt the script that sends postcards. I now have more control over what happens. Some parts of the site may not work as expected but that is hopefully only for a short while.
November 26, 2000 This time I have only updated the site with 4 new postcards, nothing else.
October 2, 2000 Another postcard addition to the site. 10 new postcards, and most of them are really great. Check them out in the postcard section!
September 11, 2000 There has been a while since the last update of my site. I've moved and bought a better computer. It has been a busy summer and all I managed to get was 15 postcards. They were added to the site this evening. I'm planning on redesigning the postcard pages, but more on that some other time.
April 30 @927, 2000 I've finally uploaded the new postcards pages that uses a MS Access database to hold all the postcards. This will result in better search possibilties in the future. I've also added another 40 great, boring postcards!
December 15 @898, 1999 24 more postcards to see!
November 27 @090, 1999 I've programmed a "Question of the month"-script to replace the one I've used until now. I hope no errors occur but if you notice anything, please tell me. The graphics on the frontpage was updated too.
November 21 @950, 1999 Some of my visitors have asked for city-names under each thumbnail. Until now this has been quite tricky to achieve but now it's possible and it's there! Thanks to Anders Jonson for pointing out some errors that I've missed, he was also the latest to ask for the city-names, and he got what he wanted!
November 14 @935, 1999 Added two new categories to my "Categorized postcards".
November 11 @893, 1999 I've finally finished my new ASP-script that makes it possible to view postcards from a certain category. Say for example that you are interested in hospitals (ehh, well...), now you can see all the postcards with hospitals etc. For the moment I only have hospitals as a category...but I will add other categories later on.
November 5 @980, 1999 Last week I visited a meeting for postcards collectors and dealers and bought 30 postcards that have now been added to my site. Feel free to use the new navigation aid on the thumbnail pages. You can now choose with thumbnail page you want to view with a dropdown list. The new postcards are on pages 21 to 23. I now have 276 postcards.
October 21 @852, 1999 It seems like the magic number for my site is 11. Today I've put another 11 postcards on the site.
September 19 @940, 1999 11 new postcards. Nothing else, sorry.
September 5 @868, 1999 I've updated the postcard pages with 8 new postcards.
September 4 @634, 1999 Fixed a problem that prevented the visitors to view the latest 11 postcards. They are now all viewable and clickable. Sorry about this.
August 14 @604, 1999

Scanned and added 11 postcards. I have a total of 214 postcards on display now. I've also added an updated text to two postcards that were in Russian. Michelle Yeoh helped me with that. Thanks!

July 24 @068, 1999 I've added another advertisement to the "Advertising" section.
July 21, 1999 I'm very embarassed to notice that my postcard pages have been a mess with documents in wrong frames, images that don't load etc. I belive I have fixed the worst errors but I'll have to go through them all to see if there is still something left...sorry for all this.
July 4, 1999 I have rebuilt the postcard pages with ASP to simplify the task of adding new postcards to the site. Now I just upload three separate files per postcard and the ASP takes care of the rest. With this new improvement I have added 88 new postcards!
May 22, 1999 I've finally added an advertisement to the "Advertisements in the 50s" page! Take a look! It's not very politically correct, and that's why I chose it.
May 21, 1999 Added an opinion poll.
March 31, 1999 Please take your time to sign my guestbook!
March 28, 1999 I have updated the site to use CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) for defining typefaces and typeface sizes. This will ensure that the site displays more correctly on Mac vs. PC etc. This will sadly make the site to look bad on older browsers that are older than version 4.0. Statistics show that over 80% of the visitors to my site uses a browser that support CSS. New techniques should, if useful, be used. Download a new browser today!
March 26, 1999 If you take a look on the postcard pages you will notice that I added 8 new postcards today, I especially like the bottom left on page 9. Why not take the chance and send a nice postcard to a friend tonight? Some days ago I added this new service!
March 20, 1999 You can now send a virtual postcard from this site!! Please take a look at this new service under Postcards in the main menu!
Febuary 21, 1999 Added 12 new postcards. I also added the "Donated postcards" page. This is were the postcards YOU send to me end up! So if you have a donation to make, please contact me!
January 23, 1999 I've managed to collect a whole bunch of postcards since the last update. I put 19 of them in the galleries today. As usual some of them are really cool. OK, so now I have a total of 92 postcards.
I'm sad to say that the other sections haven't changed a bit...
December 4, 1998 The postcards keep rolling in...well, accually I buy them and then I put them in the gallery. Anyway, you can enjoy 12 new postcards today. Some really nice ones this time (as always). Check out the second and fourth postcard on gallery page 6! As of today I have 73 postcards for your viewing pleasure!
I really should work on the other sections of this site, but I can never find time for it... but some day when you least expect it, it will be there.
November 28, 1998 I added 11 new postcards. The second postcard on gallery page 5 is almost my new favourite! Have a look!
November 22, 1998 I did some cleaning up, but I bet I messed something else up while doing it, that always happens to me. Added a link page under "Other things". It seems like you have to have one of those if you have a site...
November 22, 1998 The thing I tried to do two days ago now hopefully works and you shouldn't notice anything. I've added a new feature (somewhat hidden though...) that prevents the user from viewing any of my pages out of its original frameset.
November 20, 1998 I tried to do a stupid thing with all my files so the site was a mess. If you visited the site around 9 pm GMT and got all sorts of weird messages and your browser crashed, blame me! :-)
November 4, 1998 Seven new postcards! I now have 50 postcards on display on my pages!
November 2, 1998 Eight new postcards were added!
November 1, 1998 Added this page. Introduced a new function allowing the visitor to send a comment on any page. The mail is formatted wi different subject lines depending on what page the visitor comments on.
October 31, 1998 New controls to navigate through the postcards. They now rely on homemade JavaScript and stay on the same place all of the time!
October 22, 1998 Five new postcards. Got permission from Mr. David A. Mundie to use a modified version of his Field Guide to The Faces on my site.
July 31 to October 21, 1998 Almost everything was added to the site. The exact dates have since long been forgotten.
July 30, 1998 www.typography.nu officially opened.
