you could criticise the way i design websites as all having a very samey lightweight, flat, clinical, modern look to them


(before you mention the "PHP parse error": it's intentional, doesn't even use PHP)

@lynnesbian It doesn't? Next you're telling me you do addition without jQuery

@lynnesbian are you pulling one of my stunts? My node servers log 404s and when i see routes coming in for .net or php or asp etc... i have the server throw emulated errors and headers to make the script kiddies think they are hitting a good target. it's just fun

@malevolence it's not designed to trick anyone, it's more about the aesthetic

nothing says "old, abandoned personal homepage that's still up for some reason" like a broken PHP script and a layout based on nested tables

@lynnesbian classique

(also i should probably get my site up and running at some point too once i finish putting it together, it's even more basic than yours somehow)

@tempo the site i had before my actual current site was just three links and a "WORK IN PROGRESS" h1 tag and it stayed that way for almost a year

it was a different time

@lynnesbian needs some animated gifs and a guestbook (bonus points if you actually embed a real guestbook instead of just a page that looks like one)

@robotcarsley the whole site (not just the retro part) is done with jekyll, which is a static website generator, meaning that you can't have any dynamic server side stuff going on

then again i could make a little python component just for that :face_think_thonking:

@lynnesbian Your page is optimized for 800x600 display, not 1024x768 or greater.

@Feufochmar ah whoops

i initially put 800x600 and then thought that the 600 was the width and "fixed" it

thanks :p
