About Us

     Our original website made its Internet debut in late 1993, long before such websites as Yahoo!, Excite, HotBot, AltaVista and Google were a gleam in someone's eye, our editor's were providing the online community with fast and reliable access to the best Internet and reference resources. In fact, in 1993, the search engine as we know it today did not exist yet and websites were not easily found. Hence, the concept for our website was born. Back in 1993, some ten years ago, Internet users could be measured in hundreds of thousands rather than by the hundreds of millions as today; the web broswer Mosaic ruled the World Wide Web; America Online was operating under its Geo DOS version; Microsoft Windows was in its infancy; computers were functioning with 16 MHz processors; hard drives were all of 10 megabytes; and a 2.4k baud modem was considered light speed.

     Many years have passed and our website continues to operate as a FREE online library offering substantive, fully annotated, links to valuable Internet and reference resources. We have strived to help students and professionals locate day to day and much needed information and resources in a quick, concise and easy to use manner. As we have watched the growth of the Internet we have learned two important things: (1) stay focused on our original mission; and (2) grow, not as the use of the Internet grows, but as the online information permits. The years leading up to the new millennium saw many websites fail. Growing too much, too fast. Faced with similar conundrums as many of our features and sections grew in size and popularity, we either broke them out as separate entities or merged similar interests together. This has allowed us to keep within the boundries of our original mission and the core of our Internet existence, to deliver pure substance rather than a zealous appeal. The words "Simply, Simplicity" hang over our founder's desk, reminding everyone at Re-QUEST dot Net™ that it's the simple things that endure and the extravagant things that flicker and fade away.

      The present day finds Re-QUEST dot Net™ still serving as your primary Internet reference and resource directory offering thousands upon thousands of links to the most useful, informative and productive resources which we ourselves use on a daily basis. We also remain as one of the Internet's oldest surviving directories.

      Re-QUEST dot Net™ is popular among students and professionals alike. Our present format has attracted visitors from all around the world wide web and generates not only a steady visitor base (35%) but also a steady flow of new referrals (65%). Re-QUEST dot Net™ is written and designed entirely by hand to ensure that it will appear and function in the same way, no matter which web browser a visitor happens to be using. Re-QUEST dot Net™ was also designed to be faster, easier to use, and more concise than other reference web sites now appearing on the Internet. As Re-QUEST dot Net™ continues its growth, we invite you to experience it with us as an advertiser or as a site sponsor.
