DerbyKing Wheels

Here’s a blast from the past! I built this site in 2002, entirely from scratch, using MySQL, PHP, HTML, CSS, and C. For 15 years, the site enabled a retired bicycle shop owner with little computer expertise to run an online store featuring vintage bicycle gear. The shop closed in 2016, when the owner passed away. I have left it up as a tribute. It still gets quite a bit of traffic, in part because of the moon calendar, which provides moon-rise and -set information aimed at helping people plan moonlight mountain bike rides, a passion of the site’s former owner. Over the years, the code was ported from BSD Unix to Linux, and from PHP3 to PHP5. The moon calendar also uses custom-compiled C binaries based on phoon and gcal.
