About This Website
The domain name rvs.org was picked after considering many others -- www.astachal.org, www.caverock.org etc. It was registered on Aug 14, 1997 and was open to "public access" in early September, 1997.
The initial version of the website used technologies such as: html, cgi-bin (backed by programs written in C++ and the UNIX k-shell) and was deployed on a Sun Sparc machine running the Solaris OS (Sun's version of UNIX).
The cost of hosting the site has been met through donations from individuals (please consider contributing
some money towards this if you can).
While we have been very successful at some of these over the years, others goals have not been realized.
We hope that with the formation of a formal alumni association (whenever that happens), it will be easier
to address these tasks.
The site is still hosted in Chicago, USA.
