So what happened to MRP?

I stopped comming by mrp years ago and it's sad to see that now it's no longer a handmade newspage. Used to be one of my daily readers back in the 90s. Great commotion when the writer came out on line.

How did OWC end up here? What happened to mrp?

MRP = The Mac Resource Page, for many years a Mac-related web site akin to Macintouch.com. Here is a WaybackMachine link to archived MRP pages:

[web.archive.org]

Some years ago the original proprietor, Eric (can't remember his last name), lost interest in maintaining the site on a daily basis and turned it over to some other folks, who didn't do as good a job maintaining it as Eric had done. I believe it was around that time that I lost interest in the site, which I had read daily for a number of years.

It's nice to see the name and logo back in action. Larry, will OWC carry on Eric's tradition of linking a Christmas card to the MRP logo during the holiday season?



It is what it is.

Hard to believe already online for 10 years... changed just a tad in that time.


MRP is in revitalization mode - what it once was it should be better than ever before. smiling smiley

I think that was the Power Mac Resource Page.

The Mac Resource Page was Eric Belsley's creation. The PMRP & the MRP merged for a short while, but split up again. The author of the PMRP quit because he only started it to help people with PM 72/75/85xx series Macs and felt that this was no longer needed.

I used to read them daily as well. The the MRP just stopped updating.

Hey, I remember that! IIRC, he also operated a DVD Resource Page, but eventually lost interest in that, too.

Yup -- he sure did: [web.archive.org]
