Homepage History
And now for a little bit of history. I started learning html when I was 13 years old in 1996. Just starting middle school I got interested in web building. Back in the day when frames were none existant and tables were mearly a basic. I started with a single page and a links page. It was very primitive. Then I started exploaring java script codes in 1997-1998. They were really cool but it was really unconventional for computers back then that didn't typically have alot of cpu or a high screen resolution. While playing with the javascript I also descovered frames, and played with thoes. The current frame setup is actually as old as 1998. By 2001 I had all of the javascript removed except the changing images on mouse over for the links and navigation bar. In August of 2003 I went through my whole homepage, tore it down, rebuilt it, removed all of the javascript and put everything in tables. The page loaded much faster at this point. And sense 2003 It's remained in the same state with diffrent sections added to the Navigation bar. However I was still stuck in the world of frames. Finally in the summer of 2006, I've broken out of that. Now my website is entirely in complete tables alone. No frames, no javascript. I am however using style sheets currently, so colors don't work so well with older versions of netscape or mozilla. I am working on fixing that as well. Hope you guys have fun! It's been a huge and ongoing learning experience for me.
