As near as I can tell the Software Reviews' page was started in Feb 98. This is the first date on any of the HTML files that I have (although all of the files say "updated" on this date rather than "created"). This month does correspond with a request from David Reeves in the Feb 98 issue of the newsletter: Wanted -- HTML authors and artists. I think that I did respond to David's article suggesting that a page of software reviews by OPCUG members be created as part of the new web site. The rest, as they say, is (dim and very distant) history!
Brigitte took over maintenance of the page around the time that she became Web Master.
