The original website was crafted in the early 2000’s and is in dire need of a refresh. It was built at a time of ‘dial-up’ being the main web access, with speeds so incredibly slow by today’s standards. Because the web was so slow, data was precious, we did fancy things like use smaller photos and reduce quality to help pages load quickly.
How things have changed, people don’t consider doing such things now, and one photo can be 20mb in size – the size of the Colin Thiele whole website back then.
It is now our privilege to be restoring the original website with good quality graphics and some updated text, so that the story of Colin Thiele can live on in this more modern world of Mobile Phones and Tablets and high speed internet.
