TRINPsite became an Internet site on the 25th day of
Mid-Northwest, 50 years after
the end of the Second World War, that is, on
50.20.4. Its first address was
www.xs4all.nl/~in. On 54.33.6 TRINPsite moved to its present address:
www.trinp.org. The old address was transferred to MVVM-site on 56.23.7.
In the more than twenty years of TRINPsite's existence enormous changes
have taken place.
If you want to know more about these changes and the new additions, you can
choose from the following Metric year files:
Those interested in a complete list of current
texts, pictures and sounds can find this in a special List of Files
document. All TRINPsite files are sorted by type and put in alphabetical
order in that document or in the main index page.
When studying, browsing
thru or downloading the
documents of this site the following points should be taken into
- 'TRINPsite' was named "InSite" the first two years of its existence.
The reasons for the change of name were given in a
- all documents are dated using a code consisting of three numbers:
12.34.5. This date appears in the top-left corner, just above the
central text frame and after the name 'TRINPsite' (or 'InSite').

(Before the 51st Late Northwest Month the documents were dated in
a more traditional way.)
- not only does the construction of TRINPsite continue unabatedly,
changes in format and design will also continue to be made when they
are believed to improve the presentation of this Internet site.
As TRINPsite remains a work in progress the use of some format or
design principles may not seem consistent.
Altho this may
be true from a nontemporal, logical point of view, in practice it is
not possible to change the hundreds of documents and other files at
New files will get the latest form and content but old files (like
the present one) may still have a different form and/or content for
reasons which may not appear logical at first glance.
The temporary inconsistence which ensues from the dynamic character
of the construction of this site over a period of more than eighteen
years is found, among others, in the use of file extensions. There
are now five such extensions in addition to those for picture, sound,
- *.html for nodal (that is, nonbasic) files designed for
text browsers. Almost all of these files have already been replaced
with *.htm files
- *.htm (other than *Txt.htm) for nodal (nonbasic)
files designed for graphic browsers, or for both text and
graphic browsers. This extension replaces the older *.html
extension. A 'nodal file' contains the code for what is also called
"a hierarchical navigation page"
- *Txt.htm for basic nongraphic text files without any
hyperlinks. This extension replaced the older plain-text files
and was later replaced itself by *.HTM
- *.HTM for basic graphic text files without any link to
a lower level (but with upward links to the main document and
- *.txt. This extension was reintroduced for the real plain
text files which enable the reader to download the whole Model in no
more than seven text files of the smallest size possible.
