Welcome to this unofficial CURVE site.
Some things that you may want to know:
Things being as they are, this site does not offer anything with a

Odd-looking email addresses
Unfortunately these webpages are being harvested by shady types
collecting email addresses to send spam to. For this reason, I've
replaces the @ in every email address with a # sign. It's not
meant to outsmart them indefinitely, but helps for now.
This page is located at
http://www.stack.nl/~conrad/curve/, Eindhoven, the Netherlands.
It used to be available from more than one place, but for the moment
you'll only find it here. If you're tired of linking and relinking:
this will remain the main location.
It all started with the discography of this band I just discovered
through Doppelgänger. The time when you found 10 or so other
people on alt.music.alternative and you learned about all those EP
releases you never knew of. After posting 1 or 2 versions Kimmo
insisted I'd go through with setting up a mailinglist,
which almost instantly grew to around 30 people. Who'd ever
thought you'd meet this many people who liked music no one you
knew had heard?
Next step was starting a web site when the world wide web was
quite young and I had just figured out what you could do with
it. When you first had to find out how to compile your browser,
Mosaic, that is.
Looking back, it was a very simple page, but the way you could get
everything about CURVE to stick together like that was exciting.
It's a different game now. It's still a product of a hobby. It's glued
together by all kinds of geeky UNIX stuff. I want it to be
usable from lynx (a text browser) and I want it to look sober, but not
boring. And last but not least it should be a HTML formatted
page without ``dirty'' tricks. Yes, I screwed up in this version,
but I'll probably fix it. No pun intended.
There are many pages out there about CURVE these days, all
with their own highlights. In the light of this, I will probably
stick with the essentials here, and at the same time make it as
useful as possible.
