The GUST Website 2013-2014

2013-2014 Leave a comment

Relaunched in September 2013 with a new design and colour scheme, using more pictures than before, the new website built on the same WordPress back-end as before and thus retained all content previously posted.

In mid 2014, an old hard-disk with a back up of the 2008 website was discovered during research for the GUST 50 Archiving Project. Its SQL database backup and many video files in various formats could be recovered, and a large part of GUST’s 2000-2008 could be transcoded to the currently used H.264 format and were imported into the website. While the quality of the recordings is very low, due to them being optimized for early-2000s dial-up internet connections, at least the gist of GUST’s output from that time can be discovered on the current website — this collection is the basis for the GUST Website Videos section of the GUST 50 History Project.
