About the Pink Floyd HyperBase

Welcome to a hobby project that grew a little out of proportions. The site is created and maintained by Jacob Crawfurd, Floyd-fan, mini-librarian, photographer and owner of Crawfurd Media.

The original material for the Pink Floyd HyperBase was researched and compiled from 1988 - 1994. It was first used as an internal demo-project for an interactive CD-ROM. Some of the chapters were later converted into this website when I made my first few steps figuring out how to make web sites, The HyperBase been online since November 1997. The site consists of more than 250 html-pages and was regularly updated for several years when it was one of the main sources for Pink Floyd information and had approximately 2500 visitors every day.

In February 2001 the site was moved to its own domain at pinkfloydhyperbase.dk. The HyperBase also got a new look and a major content update. In 2020 it was time for a slight redesign again, a few updates that I had missed and finally a technical update to HTML5.

Please inform me if you find something on this site that is wrong, violates copyright laws or should be removed for any other reason. I will look at it, but can't promise that I will have time to reply.

Technical information

Since the Pink Floyd HyperBase was used as a test project for web sites, I originally used a lot of efforts to make sure it could be viewed in any browser, platform etc. The original coding of site was validated XHTML 1.0 and CSS2. Almost 20 years it was still working fine, but not for mobile browsers. This has now been fixed with a new mobile-first design using HTML5 with Bootstrap.
