RIP My Website (1996-2008)

This article via Spoongraphics

Can’t help but laugh at the screenshots. What were they thinking?

Hang on.
I think these blinding, psychedelic design are quite familiar.

Remember our computer class in the, oh, 8th Grade?
Everybody excited about HTML and first-time programming something.
TABLES were oh-my-god-so-Difficult.
IFRAMES were all the rage.

Girls would go searching for cute bullets, buttons, wallpapers and Sanrio-character graphic.
Boys would collect their favourite sports/bands pictures and banners.
And then we had a bet going who would be able to cram the most into a page.
The unofficial prize would go to the flashiest, most-embedded-to-heck website of the class.

Remember, this is a dial-up days of woefully slow connection, when 28.8 kbs was pretty fast.
But nobody cared about that, really.
We were just having a blast, like having another room of our own to decorate and fill up with stuff we like.

I’m still attempting to make a website from time to time.
Have learned quite a lot about various mark-ups, web typography, accessibility, blah blah blah, since then.

But somehow, creating website isn’t as fun as it used to be.
And the room doesn’t feel like something of mine anymore.

Murzkine Mock-Up (II) – Codified

Murz proudly presents…
{ Curly Murzkine }

In awe with sIFR and Blueprint at the moment.

CSS validated and passed with no error/warning (from my side, anyway)
(X)HTML, though, seems to be breaking nearly every rule there is.

One of these days, I’ll try to learn and use it properly.
