TRMK has turned 1 year old with the first ever posting back on December 5th, 1996. Back then was a time of hiatus, where nothing in the world of MK was happening and MK4, MKM, and MKA were out of the scope. TRMK was not the first HTML project done by site creator, Jeff Greeson. In fact, back in June of 1995, Jeff began to develop the ultimate directory of Mortal Kombat sites based on the idea brought to him by Eric Giblock. The site was named The MK WWW Site Access, which has been brought back on-line for this weekend's special occasion. Back then MK3 was out in the arcades, living up it's success. MKWSA expanded to become one of the Premier MK Directory sites on the internet which finally tapped out at over 90 MK related links with full descriptions in 8 categories. MKWSA soon developed it's own HTML MK3/UMK3 Moves List, which is also featured on TRMK. Soon came MK Trilogy and the HTML Moves List for PSX and N64 were created, which are still on TRMK today. August 15th, 1996 came the periodical updates on the main page which soon evolved into Information Pages. From there came frequent MK information updates and finally TRMK was born. TRMK was first graciously housed on Novaré International's webserver. Soon came the need to branch off of the Novaré website and in came http://mk.hotweird.com. Initially, mk.hotweird.com was just an old Intel 486/66 with 8 megs of ram. It was a great machine for the trickle of traffic that was coming to the site. Suddenly word broke loose that the first beta of MK4 hit Chicago and soon that poor 486 couldn't handle the sheer amount of traffic it was getting. Now mk.hotweird.com is a Cyrix P200+ with 32MB EDO and 1GB of HD space. After this essential upgrade and MK4's presence, TRMK nearly tripled their traffic in the month of September from 55,000 page requests in August, to 131,000. Then almost doubled again in October with 230,479 page requests. These numbers are attributed to TetterkeT's speedy CGI database driven design of the page, which immerses the user into a graphical interface without large graphic files to download. TRMK is now a huge success, winning notoriety on MK Co-Creator, Ed Boon's Noob Saibot's Outworld, The Official Midway Mortal Kombat 4 Site, and on Gamespot News. TRMK is dedicated to bringing the MK 'net community the fastest and most accurate news and features for one year strong. TRMK could not have been such a huge success in it's first year without the dedicated and hard work of TetterkeT and the TRMK Staff past and present. Thanks everyone for all your support, especially Novaré International who has donated bandwidth even since the beginning, as we hope to bring many more outstanding years of service.
