Originally, the X-Bomber Game Project had a single page on my site at piersbell.tripod.com, (back in 2002, when people had homepages).
Once the project expanded and the game was released, within the space of about 18 months, the game's website was hosted in the following locations as I was trying to get as much bandwidth and flexibility as possible for free and with a minimum number of adverts:
2003.02.14 xbomber.tripod.com 2003.05.06 v1 - members.lycos.co.uk/xbomber 2003.06.03 v2 - www16.brinkster.com/xbomber 2003.10.31 v3 - btinternet.com/~xbomber
On 16th December 2003, xbomber.co.uk went up, featuring version 4 of the site. This featured a left navigation bar, used frames and was hosted by Krystal hosting.
