Change History for Web-Site
This is to help people who visit more than once on what changes
they might want to check out since their last visit.
Ok, haven't updated this in like eight years but have used this site to take a break from working to enjoy my little collection.
Since last I posted, moved from CA to PA, bought a house had two more kids, had three jobs and haven't really got any thing new in the line of my card collection.
Have been searching ebay for those last few cards but they haven't appeared or were far more than I think they are worth.
Well been tending to my son Tobias (11/05/2002) and haven't had much time to really work on the website that is 200+ meg. I however have moved the entire site to freeshell.org. This move will remove all the banners, and pop-up ads that plauge the free sites.
I have also reduced the amount of content on the web site to make it a bit more managable and so I can get it all on one site. Mostly removed the common cards or phone cards that don't directly relate to tradeing cards.
If you have any suggestions please use the new contact link to find out how to email me. It is designed so the spam scrappers can't fill my inbox with spam.

|01/12/2002||The site has had it's first birthday and things are pretty quite.
Been working on
getting those last few cards. The lastest big buy was the gold coupon card for
the super premium set and the Santa Set from Comic Image. In the next coming
months I'll be putting more on line and rebuilding all the web pages so they all
work. Does anyone know of a really good web page generation method? I'm
thinking on switching everything to XSL-XML but don't think that the older
browsers would like that very much. Any how, Happy new year.

|12/18/00||Started this History Page|
History to date:
In the beginning....
In mid 2000 I really got into collecting Coca-Cola stuff. Mostly toys and stuff to hang in my cube so I didn't have to look at the red-beige colored walls any longer. What do you do with all the empties? You use them as wallpaper! That is what I started doing back in April of 1999, and then it just grew. Now I have over 200 empties covering about 80% of the wall space in my cube. Most people suggest that there isn't enough space for another Coca-Cola item, but after thinking, and removing a couple to make like a shadow box out of them so the new item can rest in a little cove, there is plenty of room. The cans are taped together in columns then attached to the cube wall with T-pins and twine. The movable counter curtains are taped columns of cans strung together with twine. The can curtains hide all the unsightly books, boxes and computers while providing a nice buffer against the cleaning crews vacumes hitting the computer cases.
Why I started this page:
After getting my first set of 100 cards to use as cube wall covering, and seeing the reaction of people when they see them, I wanted more. The search for more information was in bits and pieces. Finding one page with information of a single set with a series number three from the one I have. I started with Series one, and then found out about Series 4. Thanks to Colagrrl's Coca-cola Galore! for opening my eyes to the other sets.
After the trials and tribulations of my search, and seeing the hole that needed filled, I started the BC's Coca-Cola trading card page for the other lost souls out there in web land.
Currently the BC's Coca Cola Trading Card page cover five sites, Geocites (14 meg), Tripod (20 meg), Netcom (5 meg), 50megs.com (50 meg), AngleFire (15 meg ) and 0Catch.com (100 meg). I started only on netcom but the five meg worth of space wasn't enough to add all the pics and pages so I expanded to Geocities. After moving all but the first three series from Collect-A-Card to the Geocities web site and then added the metal sets again, space became an issue. Starting up the Tripod site hopefully will give me enough space to finish my little project.
