Whats New on Retro Network!


MY NAME IS BUP and i have invaded RETRONETWORK.NET and from now on its now Retro BUPWORK home of the most DANK downloads and sites on the webs. here we GAHW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!





(check the date :) )


want to check out some useful projects on github? well now you can! the github links feed is now available


before on older browsers like Netscape 3.0 it was broken due to it using CSS. But now i have re worked it to Good old HTML! I have also added an xml button for easy access to the raw feed


Now netscape 2.0 users can navigate Retro Network without going to the site map! unfortunately internet explorer 1.5 is still broken (if you know of a code fix for Internet Explorer 1.5 please let me know via email)


For you protoweb users out there i have updated the feed categorys to add one new category. Protoweb Sites. Sites under that category will work with the Pass-through proxy service

for more info about protoweb visit protoweb.org [modern browser required] or for old browsers visit http://retronetwork.net/protoweb/


My hosting provider sent me a email saying that Retro Network will encounter some downtime for an upgrade to cpanel

The downtime is on the following times
Start: 2023-10-22, 10:00 PM ET
End: 2023-10-23, 01:00 AM ET

during that time all services and subdomains of Retro Network will be offline


It turns out that i forgot to disable the 'use CSS styles instead of HTML' option on KompoZer. I have now disabled it so now it outputs HTML elements. So that means Netscape users and Internet Explorer 1.5 users will see the page colors. This will not effect modern browsers


Retro Network is now accessible via the Protoweb Proxy service this also means that Internet Explorer 1.5 users can now visit Retro Network and over time all pages will be formatted for Internet Explorer 1.5
to find out more about Protoweb visit http://retronetwork.net/protoweb

Note Only the main domain and the RSS subdomain


Now that i think about it HTML4 is out of date. Due to This i have created an new HTML5 layout which will replace the other layouts in April 5th 2023 Check it out by clicking the link above



P.S check the date :)


Well Retro Network Turns one year old today!

Its the best of both worlds
Mobile users will no longer have to zoom in. While old browsers will still be able to view the site without errors

Note: This means this is NOT the end of m.retronetwork.net it sill hosts mobile downloads


I have added a banner for the RSS feeds which i now call the
Retro network RSS System

NOTE: This will not break compatibility with older RSS readers

Sorry somehow some HTML 5 infestation has gotten into the FTP directory. I am trying to exterminate the HTML5 rodent as we speak until then old browsers will experience script errors


Due to Google making Feedburner no longer work on Old Browsers like Internet Explorer 4.0 I have decided to discontinue the Feedburner service to continue to receive new updates via the RSS feed you must switch to the ListGarden feed which has been tested to work on Old browsers. The


Due to Google butchering Feedburner with some HTML 5 bloat and also removing some services that Retro Network depends on. I am switching the HTML preview pages to ListGarden. Don't worry. You do not need to change your RSS reader because the main RSS feed is also powered by ListGarden

I now have a personal website that is separate from my main site. i even have a personal blog you can subscribe to. just head to http://jackson.retronetwork.net hope to see you there :)


Due to the Internet Explorer end of life happening tomorrow i need to clarify that the Retro Network will always support Internet Explorer (so is razorback95.com) and just in case Windows 10 redirects you to the malware known as Chromium Edge. I will find a Fix for the redirection problem.
