The Blam.Bungie.Org Archives
This site went live on May 22, 1999, as (the now-defunct) blam.bungie.org. For the next two months, the front page (which, aside from the forum, was all this site really was) went through some odd contortions, with graphic elements moving around the page in a solar-system-like ballet. In early July, Aaron Davies decided to start archiving the changes, by saving a copy of the site each day. Two weeks later, Halo was announced, and the site was redesigned as the HBO you know today. Aaron's archive was housed at Columbia University, but disappeared when he graduated. Luckily, he saved the entire shebang, and we've relocated it here for the sake of posterity.
